Next match - Palace (A) Sunday 14:00

Recommended Posts

This lot have pumped us 13-1 over the last four fixtures. 

 

Be great to get a Southampton going on them.

Bogey team alert! I've already got visions of Zaha falling over Soy's outstretched leg and going down like a sack of spuds. Palace 1-0 City (Milivojevic pen).

This will be one of our hardest games so far. If we win this convincingly I'll start to really believe our hype. They're in very good form, and have been as "lucky" with VAR as us so that will be interesting to see.

Can BR out-fox the Owl?  I frigging hope so.

 

These fixtures have been a very un-pleasant experience of late and we really do need to put this right. These are no mugs though and Woy is a clever man.  I would take 1-0 now.

Team in fine form, great shape, confidence high, what's to fear?

I'm talking about Crystal Palace.

 

I've always liked them, but don't really want Palace to be our bogey team, so let's wrap this game up.

They do have a system that can damage us, especially if Zaha runs at us. 

 

I'd imagine "after Southampton©" Hodgson will have a back 5 and a cautious midfield primed for counter attacks. 

 

As for us, can't see the need for any changes.

This is precisely what's gonna happen.

Palace games have been grim and the ref has not helped, maybe VAR will be a benefit to us? I can see them getting thier usual pen, 3-1 to us though. Foxes never quit and 3rd time lucky.

I made exactly the same prediction with my mates on WhatsApp. Totally sick of losing to this lot, though. That 4-1 defeat earlier this year was ridiculous in terms of the general play and number of shots each side had but that's what they do; they're very clinical. On paper they are nothing special but as a collective they are very dogged and hard to beat. Think they are in the top 6 or even higher for form in the calendar year 2019. This will be a totally different game to Southampton as they will set up with a low block and 2 banks of 4 and look to hit us on the break. It might just be me but their pitch seems relatively narrow, further limiting space. It's going to be a tight, tense game, I suspect.

With the form we are in we should fancy our chances against anyone, but Palace are our kryptonite and there’s always a combination of them raising their game and us lowering ours in these fixtures. 

 

That said we’ve been so good we surely are due a point there at least? So will go for a 1-1 draw.

Wished we had been playing our 1st game this season against these at home. Naturally very wary about this and i wouldnt be disappointed with a draw.

 

Play like we did on Friday though and keep Zaha quiet and it could end up being a good result. 

 

Fingers crossed 0-2.

Huge test for us, Palace have had the better of us on numerous occasions over the past few seasons and beating these will go along way to establishing us as genuine top 4 contenders, we have the players and quality to beat them.

Good side Palace. Hodgson a very underrated manager in all honesty. They’ve been a thorn in our side recently. 
 

If we truly want top 4 then beating these is a must. A draw would be ok. 
 

however, as we’re gonna win da facking league, we’ll smash em 1-5. Get in.
