Yeah "potential England manager 'Pards'" has won the equivalent of 30 points for only 7 wins from 33 games in all comps this year. 5 league wins.

Anon thinks he's good at his job. :lol:

I was wrong. 4 league wins.

Since Jan 1st Palace have played 27 league games.
Won - 4
Drawn - 6
Lost - 17
Points total = 18 = 0.66 points per game.

Watford are only marginally better, iirc. Which was why dumping QSF was absolutely the right decision

Which club is next for Pards to drag down into the championship? Sunderland could do with a 5 game lift before collapsing into a heap again.

Good to see Everton putting the Hammers in their place.

I'd love to see them go down.

My mistake should have said top 4. I make mistakes at times.
However we can all at least laugh at bimboman's team.

I don't get Anon. Is he from the north or south? He's a Hammers fan but also a Wigan league fan. Could he be an Aussie multi pretending to be an English fan?

Taking away United's show against Chelsea which was a disgrace, I was happy with their performance yesterday. Good intent and plenty of chances created. Yes it was another 0-0 but I'd prefer more of that than seeing parking the bus performances like in Anfield. Not the United way.

Kopp has been a revelation . I know loads of people that have met him and say he is a great bloke, humble with a great sense of humour. He gets good press in he local paper as well unlike Brendan :lol:

No real fans have a second team who also play in the same division.

You might get away with being partial to a shithouse second team in the lower leagues - but anything else is just being a plastic

Schweinsteiger back in the Utd senior squad again. Even if he wasn't going to play him, sending him off to the U21s or whatever the fudge was a pathetic move. Jose has been a right mess so far hasn't he.

Did seem rather childish - I can't imagine Schweinsteiger being a bad influence on the squad either. Wonder what is going on with Mkhitaryan as well? - he's too good to not make the match-day squad

we would do this on our table football, made it a bit more interesting on the 100,000th game, especially playing 2-3-5 against 5-2-3

I was at the cinema last night so didn't see it.

Looks like the makeshift defence was exposed and control from Iniesta missed from reports.

Man City have genuinely world class players and a top manager, injuries will always play a part in a game against that level of opposition.

I have no doubt that Man City were the better side on the night given the result and what I read about City's second half performance but I don't think the same result would happen if both teams had a full deck.
