    I hear what your saying but when do we ever follow the script.

      Would take a draw and that is how the team will be set up..................and then concede in the 93 minute.

      With Shampton having 2 games in hand and potentially stepping over our foes to dump them back in the mire. Our game at sainsbury's franchise 2010 fc could be now a real humdinger. Sure a draw will probably see us on the cusp of safety - however a win will go a long way to condemning them to an existential struggle for survival. A crushing blow for a team that has been relying on great escapes for a little too long for lady fortune to continue to tolerate, they're having, yet again, a dogshit season. Let's put the perennial strugglers where they belong. That would cap a great season for me.
      I would agree with that but I am always nervous about Palace games as the atmosphere at Selhurst is likely to be very tense. Haven't got a ticket so may hide under the duvet until its all over.
      We're going up, we're going to win the Cup, for Sussex by the Sea.

      I make those prices twice as likely, not three times?

      Evens is 50% and 3/1 is 25%, with the draw 9/4 is 31%.

      Have I got that wrong?
      No, spot on. Quite typical percentages for a PL match without Big 6 involvement.

      When we're away I take comfort from the reality we only have a 50% chance of losing - when instinct makes depressing defeat feel far more likely than that.

      Conversely, when we're at home I worry when the real odds of us taking 3pts from a "very winnable" game are only 50/50 or a bit worse...!!!

      I agree.
      We've played Manure twice, with a no fear attitude, we gave it a good go.
      They'll be worried about us, and what we can do, given an opportunity to score.
      I'm sure CH will have that well covered in the coming week.
      They'll be worried about us? What exactly is it that we can do? It's been so long I'm struggling to remember.

      Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

      51,700 v Burnley last game in 1978/79. 4,005 v Wimbledon in 1984. Same division. I think this shows the real plastics.

      We should have buried Bournemouth yesterday, we had some great chances but didn’t take them.
      So on to next week then, and it promises to be a nervy encounter. Getting one point out of six , when lots of you were predicting four, could bring unnecessary pressure to your performance, but in truth one more point for you should do it.
      Now, does CH set up for a point and invite pressure? or does he try to win the game ?
      Personally, I think you’ll set up defensively, with Knochaert (?) and Izzy (?) hoping to catch us on the break.
      With Wilf playing more centrally, I can see D and D having a torrid afternoon, with a penalty and red card given.
      Fancy us to win 2-0

      And then no doubt carry on to grab a European place.

      Really hope that Goldson gets the nod over Duffy personally. I think Duffy had such a stinker yesterday that he will be targeted as a weak link and his confidence must be shot.

      Some random jottings :

      - If Schelotto goes walkabout and doesn't concentrate for 90+ minutes, we're definitely in for a torrid afternoon.

      - Whilst Knocky is an appealing option, his hotheaded temperament in the Selhurst park cauldron is too big a risk.

      - Maybe Murray might be more fired up with something to prove against his old Club?

      - For what it's worth, I'd bring in Bruno, Kayal, Locadia, Ulloa (drop Schelotto, March & Murray to the bench; Propper can't play), add Hemed & Knocky to the bench. But I can't see CH making 4 changes.

      - It's another game where the opposition need 3 points not 1. The pitch and the atmosphere at Selhurst Park is a huge advantage to Palace, if we get through the first 20-25 mins we can make things happen.

      - KTF we are on 35 points with 6 games left - Palace are on 31 with only 5 games left.

      - For what it's worth, my spreadsheet makes 34 the cut off - with WBA, Stoke & Southampton relegated. Palace hit 40 points, we get 38.

      Can I just remind people, we are playing Palace, a team that are not that good, have an appalling record since being in the premier league, have striker who has scored 2 goals all season, having watched then play a few times on the tv, do not seem to have a style or pattern of play. So we will probably get stuffed...... letís get real, itís a winnable game if we play like we can, we are a better team
      Than then, based on our points this season.

      Well it will be the big one next Saturday wonít it . If you win or draw then youíre safe and weíre right in the shit conversely if we win then you will start twitching . A draw is no good to us we need the win and a return of 4 points would be good . Two things that could be crucial are , one , we are playing well and donít look resigned to relegation and two , the crowd will be right on it . The only drawback is a few local pubs will be closed and the ones open are for regulars only so getting a pint around the ground will be a nightmare , so Croydon could be a option . A lot are going there so it could be interesting if you stop off at east Croydon .
      Iím normally nervous about our games but strangely I feel very calm about about this one . I feel the players will be angry about yesterday and will be extra fired up as will the crowd . Iím glad itís a normal kick off time and a early start will be necessary to get in the mood . It will be good for you to witness a proper old school atmosphere but hopefully with no smoke and bangs .
