Palace In Perspective

Memories from Grimsby … It’s Saturday night in our house. I’m sat down, beer in front of me, tablet on my lap scrolling through my Twitter feed, watching Strictly. Well, half watching ‘Strictly’.  The great thing about Twitter is that it is an excellent distraction when you’re completely interested in what

Palace In Perspective

Time for another article about Tony Pulis and our fears and hopes for the next twenty odd games with the baseball capped hoofer/ relegation avoiding messiah (delete per your preference). Not here.  You must have seen enough of those by now. Instead I’m writing about Chris Hughton, the manager of Saturday’s

Who’d have thunk it. Twelve months on from the appointment of Ian Holloway to replace Dougie Freedman we find ourselves in the very same position. Looking for a new manager which, at the time of writing, the search continues. So much has happened in that twelve month period after losing

Trying To Remember One better Day Okay. Things aren’t going so well. Not a surprise perhaps, but depressing nonetheless. And as we feel depressed, why not look back to happier times to cheer us up. One day last week I cheered myself up by typing “Don Rogers Crystal Palace” into

Writing these articles is definitely becoming more difficult as the weeks go on.  This is mainly because the time after the game feel like an ongoing ‘Groundhog Day’ following yet another bad dream and ultimately another loss in the Premier League. The under-lying themes from my articles have always been around
