Palace vs Fulham

Monday.live on sky 8pm ko.

Dilemma for Dowie, stick with the players and formation that worked so well at Villa or change back to 4-4-2.?
Personally I'd stick with the 4-5-1 and try and frustrate Fulham.

Fitz Hall has a slight knock but should be fit, no news on international clearance for Lakis or Danze.

4-5-1 at home? Nah, 4-4-2, we need to attack them. We're not good enough defensively to keep out goals. Anyone going? I am .

Have a good time.

I don't think we'll go anywhere tomorrow. Jensen, Bocanegra, Bouba Diop and Cole are all out for us with different reasons. Plus our Monday nights are always bad. Last 2 have both been 4-3 losses. I think maybe a draw would result from this game.

I'm backing Palace to follow in West Brom's footsteps and get their first win of the season. Off the back of a great result at VP, have no reason to believe they won't get all 3 points at home.

2-1 Palace
Johnson, Routledge - Boa Morte

I think you guys will win.

Firstly we had many first team players out. Then Coleman opted for a poor and slow central midfield of Pembridge-McKinlay to cancel out any of our attacks. Now Pearce is sent off and not only that but we have taken off a striker to replace the gap in defence!

Our Monday nights are always full of action, but always bad for us. Our last two have been 4-3 losses.

Let's see what this game can bring.

Unlucky man. I hope you get better.

Crystal Palace are getting the better of this game by far. Apart from some spare Fulham attacks it's all Palace so far.

No centre-midfield, no game I'm afraid. McKinlay and Pembridge is no way to go about a Premiership game.

Johnson should have put that header away.

What a great game! I know Fulham got an early red card, but Palace was still impressive today. In the end Palace won 2-0, but it could have been so much more. Johnson alone against the keeper, Kaviedes shot in the bar, Kolkka's deflected shot just over the bar, to name some of the chances. Riihilahti's fantastic pass on the first goal (to Johnson who scored) and header on the second goal, together with hard work in the midfield, must earn him the MOTM award.

Yeah, Fulham were terrible with 10 men. Should have been 5-0. Johnson is an early candidate for miss of the season. That was appauling but congrats on your first win, finally off the bottom of the table :thmbup:..

YEEEEESSSSS

Palace didn't know what to do against 10 men in the first half, just kept passing it square or backwards. Second half we got the goals and then it just went crazy for the last 20 mins
Aki was immense and totaly deserved his goal, less said about AJ's miss the better p

What were your opinions of the Ref, he seemed to let a lot go?

I'm off to watch the game on video

i wouldnt let the ipshits fan get to you, all you do is have to ask him "what league is your club playing in again? Do they Play Arsenal, ManU, and Chelsea regularly?"


We'll see how long he talks :rollani:

I did and he then shut up!


The thing that pissed me off was when he presented me with a photocopy of the league table
