    I've been following her since she's had only 1000 followers... Won't be long until one of the broadcasters snaps her up. She's brilliant.

    I'm confused here. Why you blaming someone else's fans? Just admit it, everyone has a thuggish racist element in their support base, including Palace.

    If Chelsea get a transfer ban does that effect outgoings? Would it screw up any potential deal for Batyshui on a permanent?
    I'm quite liking what I'm seeing so far. Skillful, with a finish, yet flawed enough that he could realistically fall to us. Likely to be overpriced though.

    The ban doesn't stop us selling players so yep Batyshui is there for the taking.
    We can actually still sign players we just can't register them.

    We'll be affected more by the plan to reduce the amount of players you can have out on loan, that might work in your favour.

    Two good away wins, 7 goals, Roy's doing a good job.

    9 games to go, 8 points clear of the drop with 33 points in the bag...at what point do we think we are safe?
    The link I posted about Roy is great, no wonder he is doing a good job :thumbs:

    I'm looking upwards now. Think we're better than our current position. Don't want to take too much for granted, but I can't see us going down this season.

    co-op Free the rhubarb crumble!

    That's been the case the whole season though? (ie something's not working). Although sticking a decent mobile striker up front does seem to have catalysed everything so maybe it was just that.

    Bit of a match today. Revenge would be sweet.

    Americans might be selling their stake (which is technically a majority holding). That's a bit nervy really - could end up going either way.

    Palace for Life Foundation’s Elite Player Development Centre member, 13-year old Damary Dawkins, lost his fight against acute lymphoblastic leukaemia exactly a week ago.

    Manchester City striker, Raheem Sterling, who had publicised the campaign to find a bone marrow donor for him, paid tribute to The Late Damary after his second goal against the Czech Republic on Friday.

    A lovely gesture from Sterling, but I wonder why he didn't do it after his first goal?

    Is that not a sending off offence?

    No, not even bookable, but subject to sanction by the tournament organisers post match, and supposedly required to be acted upon regardless of the message or image.

    I suspect that young Sterling had sufficient confidence in his own ability to realise that he would get a further opportunity to pay tribute to the child when he scored again.


    Evidently not - but we will see on Saturday when Crystal Palace's own players get their opportunity to pay tribute to the child who has lost his life.

    Bumped into Ray Lewington today walking along the sea front in Essex. Shook his hand and gave him a bit of encouragement, which he seemed very grateful for. Always seems a class act to me.

    A significant, if not convincing result today.

    Another season in the prem it looks like ! As good as it is being in the top league, i've not enjoyed this season. Atmosphere is pretty dull, soo many tourists.

    We made hard work of that. Didn't look convincing for most of the game and missed some good chances.

    Sympathies to Huddersfield.

    Lovely gesture from the Palace fans today. In the 13th minute we stood and applauded as a tribute to Damary Dawkins. His family were there.

    A most fitting tribute.

    Was quite fitting that the minutes applause seemed to really stir the team into action. Shame Andros didn't quite manage to cap it with a goal.
