    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

    Cannot see us winning our 6th league cup on last nights performance, utter rubbish until late subs Grealish & Kodjia were bought on to steady the ship and nick the winning goal.

    We played our 2nd team last night, did ok. A win and a clean sheet, hopefully a couple give some competition to the 1st team.

    Apparently, the Baggies were in the draw for last night having finished bottom of the Prem. Those teams finishing higher up the league (Stoke & Swansea) join the draw for the next round tomorrow.

    Looks like the Selhurst Park faithful are going to have to rely upon last minute loan deals which, in fairness, might fill some spaces and did work for us last season.


    But I do wish all these rumours about Zaha leaving would go away, my finger nails are nearly down to the bone ... again!!


    Seems to be a regular problem for us Palace supporters though ... no nails!! (As well as no centre forward of course!)

    Absolutely Poundy, Zaha signing a new contract shows short term loyalty but of course we realise that this does not prevent a future move, it simply assures the Club of a decent return if he does go.

    That said, voices close to the Boardroom, as well as the player himself, have reiterated that there never was any serious interest from either Chelski or Tottingham which just goes to show how the media love to make up stories in order to grab headlines and sell their papers.


    Upwards and onwards, bring on the reds, hopefully we'll put up a good fight!
