Easy game to score some goals against next Saturday. Arsenal were atrocious and Artita's substitutions were arrogant and disrespectful.

Bring it on.

Attacking football with end products…. Goals

And

A stadium bouncing…..


Where have we gone wrong.

Did you watch it? Wasn’t all that attacking, Palace had 6 shots in total, first goal created by coming off the back of someone’s head who wasn’t looking. They absolutely took their chances though, and scored a pen. However before the 3rd Arsenal had very much a touch of the Brighton’s and missed 2 or 3 golden opportunities. Palace were very good, high intensity, never letting them settle.

We were far better at home to Arsenal though, and Chelsea for that matter. We just can’t finish.

Palace absolutely brilliant tonight. Sickening to watch. Exciting attacking players, some aggression and urgency and some depth in attackling options. Really puts to shame some of the dross we've served up while getting excited about the occasional 1-1 draw.

With Arsenal, on a mission to sanitise match days to a Disney experience. The family experience yes, “unsavoury elements” squeezed out since 2011 at every opportunity. Whilst Leeds, Spuds and CP to name just three absolutely thrive and even plan for a (legally) hostile welcome for visiting teams/overwhelming cauldron of noise.

Signing technicians and ones for the future, over pace merchants and aggressive players snapping into 50:50’s. Bissouma the brilliant exception, but something changed last autumn.

But finishing and winning is really what its all about and we have forgotten that - just cast your minds back to playing football in the school yard ( in my time it was all tarmac) and you played with a tennis ball as you couldn't afford a proper football. Personally I was crap but it was about getting it (the ball) quickly (not necessarily nicely) to the person in front of the goal who would invariably score....

Luck over 5 seasons or better recruitment (better game-changers)?

They've recruited well. Unfortunately when a club can offer a player £6m* per year rather than £5m it gives them advantages. Might not seem like a big difference but its the difference of competing with Villa or West Ham about players rather than with Burnley.

* their numbers are not out yet but I assume the difference is going to be similar to what it has been

Exactly.
