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

02/10/12 League Wolverhampton Wanderers (a) 2-1 win

We have very fond memories of away days at Molineux. And this was one to add to the collection. Wilf and the lads certainly turned on the style after an unfortunate slip from Damien Delaney let in Wolves for opening goal by Ebanks-Blake. That was the only encouragement that Palace

29/09/12 League Bolton Wanderers (a) 1-0 win

Another wonderful away day and a far cry from the start that we experienced to the season. Palace earned the win at Bolton thanks to a late penalty from Glenn Murray. Wilf Zaha was a big threat as ever and it was him that earned the penalty after being tripped

22/09/12 League Cardiff City (h) 3-2 win

We have previous with this team. Who can forget the match ups with them last season, both in the league and in the cup. We owed them a result or two. And this was it, with interest. Dougie chose to make four changes to the side that drew with Forest

18/09/12 League Nottm Forest (h) 1-1 draw

The next team to visit Selhurst Park is one that has had recent success in South London. But Palace were in fine form and had high hopes for this game. After a great first half it was once again Kagisho Dikgacoi who gave Palace the lead soon after the second

14/09/12 League Charlton Athletic (a) 1-0 win

A two week break for international games was the build up. It probably wasn’t ideal seeing as our first win was in the game on the other side. But that may prove to be the turning point. Regardless of how the game was portrayed on the television highlights, the home side

Palace Magic #1

The first in a series of posts to give us a fix when there are no Palace games … This flashback needs very little introduction …  Still Dreaming of Villa Park It was billed as a complete miss match. The moment Palace were drawn against Liverpool in the 1990 FA

01/09/2012 League Sheffield Wednesday (h) 2-1 win

Quite a week. The natives have been restless, calling for Dougie’s sacking and asking where the new signings are. Others have been keeping the faith and backing the club. This game was always going difficult in an atmosphere to match. So the players responded. A cross into the centre from
