As have stated many times, beyond the pantomime we have more in common with Palace in this skewed league than we’d like to think. Again, beyond the pantomime of the rivalry, I have nothing but respect for fans of Palace who must grow up around Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea plastics but never waiver in supporting their local side. They’re a St Johnstone to our Kilmarnock.Nah. I hope palace finish above nobody ever - don’t care what they’ve done or who they are - it’s in our DNA to all think like this surely…
Yep. that's my feeling too. I'd like West Ham to finish them above them too, but that looks unlikely.Me too. The Nigels aren't going down so I'm happy enough for them to finish a place above Chelsea in mid table.
And much good has it done them!Yep. Have lived the rivalry with Palace for nearly 50 years. Have it in my DNA. But, my loathing for Chelsea is currently uncontainable. That is a club built on the most corrupt (modern) foundations. Bates, Abramovich & Boehly. A prile of utter ****s.
........and the more cash Boehly will throw at it in desperation, the deeper do-do they'll be in with FFP etc etcYep. that's my feeling too. I'd like West Ham to finish them above them too, but that looks unlikely.
One other thing: the lower that Chelsea finish, the harder it will be for them to attract a top manager for next season ... and, by extension, top players
