    Hope youre right, but it isn’t great to carry bad form over the summer.

    i think we will be ok, the large loan was also to help fund a little transfer or two...

    If this isn't a penalty to Arsenal I'll eat my hat.

    As dreadful as that first 45 minutes was, a repeat of it would be more than pleasing for us.

    Both sides have a fairly nasty run of fixtures after this.

    Not good this for Leicester. Doesn't look good at all for Barnes.

    Results going our way at the moment. Brighton & Burnley losing, Newcastle and Fulham drawing ...... just need a few more points, lads, to avoid the end of season bum-squeak ......

    Palace: Man Utd, Spurs, WBA, Everton, Chelsea, SAINTS

    Burnley: Spurs (right now), Leicester, Arsenal, Everton, SAINTS

    Brighton: Leicester, SAINTS

    Fulham: Spurs, Liverpool, Man City, Leeds, Villa, Wolves, Arsenal, Chelsea, Burnley, SAINTS

    Very difficult for any of those clubs to get any sort of momentum going prior to playing us. Very decent chance of us being the higher placed team in all of those four games.

    WBA have a kinder run of fixtures between now and when we play them. But they're 13 points behind and with a much weaker GD. Nothing to be concerned about.

    So Fulham didn't win 6-0 then?

    Maybe they're not very good.

    Mason has been replaced as 4th official in the Liverpool game later.

    Apparently he is "injured"...

    Me too. Seeing as it was a handball. Similar to the handball by Wolves against us. Oh...

    I suppose to be fair, since the Villa game, we do all now know that you can literally save the ball and not given away a penalty now. So we have consistency.

    It's just a shame about rule 3.5.276, which says that the above isn't the case if your name is Ryan Bertrand.

    Thing is, the mid season changing of rules is pretty unfair, I think. A team will miss out on three points, which they would have got earlier in the season (as we have done), which could make all the difference.
