    As per my #1469, it would indeed appear that this has now become the Championship thread!

    But may I just add that I'm super happy with Palace's performance against Fulham which is a significant improvement on our first match last season against another newly promoted side, Huddersfield!

    Frank de Boer v Roy Hodgson ... no contest!


    Also we have a potentially good new home-grown right wing back talent in Aaron Wan-Bissaka, 20 years old and is likely to be a regular this year. We just need to keep hold of these promising youngsters rather than selling them on to Clubs whose super rich owners and highly paid so-called 'managers' seem to have little idea these days how to encourage youngsters and prefer to buy them without the hassle of basic coaching.

    It says a lot about the problems in football with the likes of Mourinho and others who seem to be no longer bothered with the effort of nurturing and developing young talent and would rather spend Club money to buy a promising player once the lesser 'donor' Club has put in all the hard work.

    Hey-ho, upwards and onwards!

    Stick around Rowley after this season it will need to be a Prem only thread for us

    I agree about the home grown talent we have heaps of potential coming through. The likes of Grealish on the books since he was 6yrs old started reaching his peak half way through last season. I think the owners are right to expect some of that talented service in return, instead of him going to the biggest purse holder.

    It appears Steve Bruce is holding back 5 of the under 23 squad from the Premier league 2 opener against Norwich City (won it last year). Looks like they may be playing for the first team tomorrow in the Carabao Cup against Yeovil. Exciting times Sky Sport main event
