Captain Jedi Perhaps not the top of the table clash that we were all expecting after Palace dropped out of the top two after home draw with Huddersfield. But we were missing both Delaney and Ward for this game though suspension and injury respectively. You could have been fooled into
Julian Speroni bleeds red and blue We welcome the return of captain Mile Jedinak for this game as well as former favourite Sean Scannell. The opening of the play was Palace but there was quite an odd atmosphere even though the Holmesdale fanatics had played their part with more wonderful
Don’t panic, we’ve got Yannick! The influential Jedi missed this game through suspension. The defensive midfielder handed the armband to KG which was perhaps a surprise to many. The away side started very brightly indeed and were rewarded with some great work in the first half with a 39th minute
The recent games all had a direct link. This one was no different, it was the visit of Holloway’s former team who probably arrived with a point to prove to their former boss. It’s an odd game, Palace have struggled recently in the first half and this was no different.
Ask any Palace fan and this will be the fixture they will first look to on the calendar. But along with the excitement of beating old foes, there is the added element of fear of losing. The usual frenetic opening but it wasn’t long until the first talking point. Bolasie
For the second game in row, Palace face a former manager. This time in the form of Steve Bruce who left under quite a cloud. And not an awful lot to report from this one. An excellent battling display brought home a point from a game that we would have
The next run of games had particular significance to Palace. The first is an away trip to Leeds, a team struggling towards the bottom of the table. Always going to be a tough game against a Neil Warnock managed team. The first half Leeds probably had the edge but in
Next up at the stadium of goals was a Derby team in decent form that were pushing for a play off place. It only took Palace twelve minutes. Or should I say it only took Murray 12 minutes. It must have been a bind not to get on the score
Regardless of the opponent’s league position, this is always a tough fixture for us. I don’t think that we have ever beaten the Posh away from home. The early signs were not great though if we were looking to extend our unbeaten run. An early goal by the home side
Another new era at Selhurst Park. The crowd welcomed Ian Holloway ahead of his first game in charge of the Eagles. There is little doubt that he has inherited a side that he hasn’t got to an awful lot with but it is the long haul that we are interested.
