So we return from another unimportant and frankly uninteresting international break to Premier League action and normality resumes with the good news that there isn’t another one for several months.
The only real cloud over the KC Stadium is the name change nonsense. It’s intensified in the last couple of weeks with insensitive and disrespectful comments from the chairman and I hope that doesn’t affect the atmosphere in the stadium because the players and management have nothing to do with it.
I’ve seen Palace a couple of times recently and they’ve been unlucky. They were the better team against Fulham until Kasami’s wonder goal and played well against Arsenal without getting the rewards. Jerome Thomas (a former Tigers’ trialist) is a player who can cause damage and Bolasie is a danger with his pace. We’ll have to stand up to Jedinak and Dikgacoi too. They can make it a real midfield battle.
With all the uncertainty in the visiting camp, I see a home win. I think it will be a lot tougher than some expect though and hope the home crowd are patient. Some hope.
