01/03/13 League Derby County (a) 1-0 win

Picture courtesy of @CPFC_Alex The start of a massive three games for Palace was a Friday night clash with Derby. Most expected this to be a live game for Sky but it did not turn out to be the case. But more importantly we were looking for our first league

23/02/13 League Sheffield Wednesday (a) 1-0 loss

The scene of the crime Some would call it fate, others karma. But if we’d thought long and hard about the fixture at the weekend then we would have realised that however hard we tried, a loss was already on the cards. Losing to Leroy Lita’s late winner was perhaps

19/02/13 League Bristol City (h) 2-1 win

Night games at Selhurst are usually good atmospheres After the convincing win over Boro in the weekend game, expectations were high ahead of kick off and the large crowd for a midweek game proved such. Palace started slowly against a struggling Bristol City who have been a thorn in our

16/02/13 League Middlesbrough 4-1 win

The biggest question ahead of the game today was what Palace team would be seen. Many fans were licking their lips at seeing possibly more of the same from the second half against Watford. The team news was that the Jedi was back in starting line up to partner KG

02/02/13 League Charlton Athletic 2-1 win

Super Kevin Phillips could be a shrewd aquisition A return to form was a pre requisite for this match. It had nothing to do with the fact that Charlton are local rivals, most fans do not even consider them such. Only in location. If the first have just to prove

30/01/13 Huddersfield Town (a) 1-0 loss

 Wilbrahimovic couldn’t save us from defeat  The reverse fixture to the game at SP shown live on Sky Sports that was eventful in that it ended 1-1 with Delaney sent off early on and returning former academy player Sean Scannell seemingly diving for a penalty. This rescheduled game

19/01/13 League Bolton Wanderers (h) 0-0 draw

The long awaited return of Dougie Freedman. Some describe him in unspeakable ways. I still consider him a legend. And while there were boo’s when he exited the Bolton team bus, the support from the crowd was thankfully warm. I am proud of Palace fans for that. Now, on to

12/01/13 League Burnley (a) 1-0 loss

O’Keefe got a rare start in place of KG This was never going to live up to the reverse fixture at Selhurst. It’s nothing to do with the recent form, it’s more that you rarely get games like that one. Going into the game, the home side had picked up
