    And well well well ... 3pts thanks to VAR ... now 4th in the PL ... unbelievable!

    I saw it all and to be fair I didn't think we deserved the win. It was a pretty dull game, Wet Spam showed more intent and attacking capability ... but then we have no real strikers. Palace played very defensively, very cagey, but hey, that's football ... well done Roy.


    PS - After the pre-season shenanigans Zaha is proving to be just a shadow of his former self ... now with limited effect on the game. I think (hope!) he'll be gone in January, we just need to make sure we get a good price for him so we can buy a decent striker! Batshuayi would work for me.

    What happens now we've lost and if Nath KEEPS his job?
    He did keep his job and now we've won one (And that was a weird presser on Thursday, when everyone in there, including Nath, was surprised he was there - the guy handled himself with the upmost dignity though).

    I am delighted with a win, an away one at the league leaders at that, and that the players put in the sort of performance that NJ has been expecting all season. Well done, Stoke, that was fantastic. I will now watch EFL on Quest tonight, (after Strictly, of course).
    But the board now has a massive conundrum, should he stay or should he go? I think they'll stick with him now.

    Interesting bit of trivia the odds for the midlands teams of Villa, Wolves, WBA, Birmingham and Stoke all winning the weekend just gone were 975/1. Was anyone on that

    Oh dear, I can’t see Everton being relegated though and Arsenal finishing that low either. Man Utd showing how good a mid table team they are though
