good game for us by all accounts, just a shame that the previous 34 games have caused me to lose a helluva lot of interest and I drank far too much before the game started and spent half of the match flicking onto the F1 to see what was happening there, I saw the goals but that was about it.

In fairness to him we have played Liverpool and United in the last two games - if we had played opposition on the same level as Palace, who knows where we'd be now?

We have and we fluffed our lines.

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.

Just like there’s not a lot of evidence to suggest the manager is either 🤷‍♂️.

Yep. Never claimed he's doing a great job. I don't think we've given him a great chance to show it though. 

Average points to stay in the league is 36. We have 30 with 3 games to play. We've looked all season like a standard relegation battling team. The idea that there's clear evidence that we are capable of so much more just isn't true. 

Norwich beat City, West ham beat Chelsea, Bournemouth have had some top results. And yet some claim we should, not could, should be clear of all of them.

I've been saying we need proper full backs in and it took two injuries to enforce them changes and we looked miles better for it. I can't see why Smith was continuing with Taylor and Konsa as full backs.

Well Targett has been injured so that's one reason. No idea about Elmo but Guilbert at least has also been injured.

Targett came on for 60 minutes. I'd rather start him and take him off for Taylor later on but overall I take your point. The persistence with Konsa as RB is madness for me.

Damage limitation tactics.

Hopefully he's realized our best chance surviving is attacking

Konsa was our best attacking outlet against Utd too.

Pretty sure Taylor went off injured. Might be wrong thou.

Yeah I didn't watch that game but I read he whipped in some good crosses in.

He did, I'm saying if Targett is fit enough for 60+ minutes of football then he has to be starting for me.

I'm always nervous about Targett defensively

I'd not have countenanced the idea of Taylor starting unless there was no other option, but he'd done well since stepping in. He keeps his place, for me.

Got to start Targett over Taylor if he's available. 

That one cross that Targett put in today which either of Trez or Davis should have scored is my reasoning for that. Taylor simply isn't capable of it.

Im nervous about them all but we have to score goals now. Targett is better overall by some distance.

Big win. Could be prolonging the pain, or could be the start of a triumphant comeback. 

Yeah, it's us and it's the hope that kills you. Have a great evening :D.
