    Well done to everyone at the club who made this happen. I'm sure it will raise much needed cash. me, this doesn't make up for preseason. I certainly won't be coming down on a Thursday night to see a palace 11, certainly lacking any serious players who they won't risk during the season, play (I'll donate to the 12th Man instead). I suspect im not the only one.

    Just saying, this doesn't wipe the slate clean as far as Palace are concerned for me.

    (Disclaimer: I was raised as a Charlton fan, so maybe nothing ever will)

    It will be a team of first teamers, with Roy on the sidelines. They don't have another game until the 20th.

    Respect your annoyance though, The 12th Man will be happy to take your donation! :)

    Greg - I agree with your sentiments about Palace in pre-season, but i think we're only hurting ourselves staying away. Good of you to put into 12th Man instead, others may not - not by design. Also - why not enjoy the match and see your mates? Why should Palaces earlier behaviour take that away from you? Finally - and not least - some people have worked damd hard to make this happen. Back them.

    I hope you'll reconsider!

    I don't know the details of why a Palace fixture didn't happen in pre-season, but our squad was on an overseas tour in mid-July, Palace had an overseas tour, we're using Tooting's ground and most of their pre-season games were elsewhere including the adjacent 3G pitch, so I suspect there will have been a very limited range of mutually agreeable dates.

    The match is happening now and hopefully it will also be of interest to enough Palace supporters to help us make it a positive occasion.

    If it is first teamers, I take it all back. I saw it described as a "Palace XI" on twitter, which usually means the kids in preseason.

    Couldn't care less how young or inexperienced the team Palace put out are. It's a great gesture that goes a long way to help our club and to repair any ill will left over from the summer.

    Kudos to everyone involved in getting this game organised!

    Liked Bobby despite the silly hair but not Jackie, so that’s a pound for me too.

    Charlton Heston was in Ben Hur. You've got the film!

    darryl this wasn't supposed to happen

    I'm not coming because I'll be writing a piece for Charlton's fanzine about the Champion Hill situation, so that's got to be worth at least a fiver.

    What was the ill-will stuff about? As a Palace fan this is the first I've heard about it. Did we cancel a game or something?

    Dulwich were expecting to play Palace in pre-season but no date was scheduled.

    Yes, got one that way earlier today. May not be able to get to the match in the end but hopefully every fiver helps.

    I don’t think I’m giving any secrets away by mentioning that we’ll have the Pop-up Bar operating on Thursday evening and it should be back in the function room rather than at the far end of the ground as we were for the Chippenham match (although personally I quite liked it down there!)

    It’ll be Southey’s finest on offer again so please do your best to drink it all before kick-off so I can watch the game.

    Where is the function room?

    Am I right with the following assumption:

    Do pop up bar takings go to us whereas the main bar takings go to T&M?

    The function room is the large behind glass area on pitchside as you walk into the ground from the turnstiles.

    Correct, all profits from Pop-up Bar go to the 12th Man.

    Anyone know what it's a 7pm Kick Off rather than 7.45? Given that people will be coming after work and Imperial Fields is a bit of a schlep from most of London, seems a tad early.
