    Do Palace even care?


    0 Not allowed!
    I played 5-a-side yesterday with a group of mates and some noob showed up in a palace shirt. In the name of #banter, I said "no hard tackles, yeah?" I got a blank look and questioned, "do you lot not care about Brighton any more?" "What?" He said. "Isn't that a Palace shirt?" I replied. "Yes." "Do you not care about the Brighton rivalry?" I asked. "Brighton?" he retorted. "Yes", I said, starting to wonder what plane of reality we were operating on. "No idea, mate."

    What the actual ****? We were only in the same division a couple of seasons' ago. Is the M23 rivalry waning?

    Just victim of the in-house drive-by.

      One of the new 10,000 they got after their lucky & only ever promotion in their history I suspect. Apparently they give out official shirts around Croydon just to boost numbers as most support Arsenal or Spurs around there.
      Seeing kids in the school or in the parks with Albion shirts instead of the big clubs and easy ones, thatís it. We have done it.

      Perhaps he just picked it up from the local boot fair as a freebie.

      All that matters is whether he went home on crutches or not.

      Sounds like he'd had a lobotomy from that conversation.

      Sounds like a proper ****wit. Which probably isn't a surprise.

      Most of the teams 'we were in the same division a couple of seasons ago' are now in the Prem. Or have been there, done that, got relegated, scooped the parachute payments. Some even bounced back up there again. Most of them are as shit now as they were then. We are always last to the party. Always the bridesmaid. We're 'a well run club' and nothing more. Where's the impetus coming from for the owner to recoup his outlay, other than from Asia and/or Property Sales?

      Have you considered that there may be a curse on us?

      For sure. We are absolutely cursed by the curse of not paying the market rate for buying or retaining players. Still, we're a 'well run club'. So that's alright then.

      A well run club & nothing more? Well myself and many on here will completely disagree with that!

      As for on the pitch... I'm very very happy with where we are. In the last 6 seasons we've gone from a bottom of league 1 outfit to one of the most established clubs in the championship with an excellent squad & fantastic array of players. You've been way way too harsh on the Albion there for me.
