27/11/12 League Hull City (a) 0-0 draw

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

24/11/12 League Leeds United (a) 2-1 loss

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

17/11/12 League Derby County (h) 3-0 win

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

10/11/12 League Peterborough United (a) 2-1 win

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

06/11/12 League Ipswich Town (h) 5-0 win

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.

03/11/12 League Blackburn Rovers (h) 2-0 win

Without going over old ground and a week of rumour as to who will be the next manager, Ian Holloway is at Selhurst for this game to watch his new team take on Blackburn. From the low of losing DF to the high of gaining ‘Olly’ the Palace rollercoaster keeps

27/10/12 League Leicester City (a) 2-1 win

Games come thick and fast so no real time to get a hastily appointed manager in which is a good thing in my place. So we are left in the very capable hands of Lennie and Curtis for what looks to be one last game. And no bigger than the

23/10/12 League Barnsley (a) 1-1 draw

As it happens, the Millwall game was the farewell for Dougie Freedman. Not that any of us knew it but I do have a suspicion that Freedman knew, it just would not have happened as quickly if he didn’t. I will leave any theories alone so I will say thank

20/10/12 League Millwall (h) 2-2 draw

This game was perhaps built up to be more than it should. Palace in wonderful form before kick off and storming yp the Championship table. Their opponents from the other side of south London very inconsistent. It was no surprise that it was Palace that took the game to their

06/10/12 League Burnley (h) 4-3 win

The scene was set. It was Family Day at Selhurst, a good home crowd off the back of the recent great form. The expectation all adds up to one thing. Pressure. Something that the lads had played without during their six match unbeaten run. Could this be a seventh? The
