Even if it’s all too late to stay up I’d rather we went down fighting and see it make a difference in mentality going into the summer. 

Yes of course, I do not want to see them give up and if they fight till the end then I guess they have a hope in the championship together. Till today and this win it was looking slim that they could even work as a team together in the championship I think.

We need to sack him because we kept a clean sheet in a win?

No we need to sack him because we are capable of playing well enough to have been out of the mess we are currently in. Good result today but too little too late.

Exactly. We've all seen in patches this team can really play. Twice against Newcastle we've seen it. Against Liverpool. Watford at home. Norwich away.

For whatever reason Smith has failed to get the most out of them most of the season.

Not sure how beating a poor palace in woeful form proves that. 

But somehow I knew a victory today would be used against him.

We played well today, can see Palace are on the beach but it was extremely easy for us. Haven't felt that chilled out and confident watching a game in ages. 

I personally don't think today changes much at all but I'm glad to see we've shown some fight.

A good win today, playing konsa at CB and Elmo at right back was a great decision by him so he gets a lot of credit from me today. Roll on Thursday and if we can beat Everton then we are right back in it.

Don't be a fool. Nothing's been used against him. He's had a good result today as we all have. It's the previous 30 odd games that have formed an opinion not just todays result.

The previous 30 odd games shows we have one of the worst squads in the league, yet people continually claim we should be doing so much better.

Whatever you say. Nobody is using today's result against him though are they. It's like saying because we've won one we should keep him on. jeez.

Elmo started because Hause got injured during warm up. Blessing in disguise

I think the Hause injury helped us as Trez had a lot more scope to cut inside and Elmo was brilliant on the overlap.

I think he’ll stay whether we go up or down and it’s good in a way we have decided as a club to commit to someone and a vision but the jury is definitely still out on him.

Couldn’t I say the same statement but replace “squads” with “manager”?  
 

It’s done no such thing. We’ve had plenty of periods of games where the players have shown what they are capable of. Look at what Sheffield United and Burnley have accomplished and their squads on paper, as I’ve said before we aren’t a plucky Huddersfield or Blackpool who have come up through the play offs this constant assertion we are lucky to be in the league and it’s insane to expect a little better than our position is wearing thin.

You could. But there's not a lot of evidence that these players are capable of so much more than we've seen. 

People keep saying it though.
