I do think people were underestimating Palace before this game. They've got a good team tbf. 

It's an odd one for me. They're well drilled but I don't think they're particularly good. I think if you do your jobs properly, make the right decisions and don't have a shit ref, you should beat them.

edit: I do know what you mean though in terms of some Villa fans' comments prior to the game.

McGinn and Grealish just doesn't work in the middle of the park at all. Not in the premier league

Was on my mind walking back from the Bournemouth game, not clear to me it's the right combination.

So many of them do. 

That's my concern. 

That's where Smith has shown the most naivety imo when putting this squad together. They can't compete physically at all. Spurs, Everton (Wesley aside in that one) and now Palace have bullied us in that aspect.

not sure what lansbury is going to do. If we push up we will get countered if we sit back we lose. it's checkmate.

When Zaha is on form he can cause anyone problems. Which is exactly what he's done today. Shit ref mind.

I agree but given how average Palace have been you could see that this game represented an opportunity to get something out of it had we not been so incompetent.

Never even looked close to getting anything from this game.

A nothing performance, not a single positive thing to take from this game.

Still time I guess but nah.

Jack can get away with being slow in the Championship, the Premiership is more unforgiving.

Pressing for a goal with ten men against a team that are as good on the counter as Palace is very difficult.

Not that we've shown any signs of being good enough to do it anyway mind you.

I have to say Smith's subs have been shocking today. Really disappointing 

Disagree. Think Davis on was a bold choice and I can see what he was trying to do. It just hasn't worked out for us (although I think Davis has done his job well).

I remember why I didn't miss being in the PL. Every bad result is the end of the world. It's a long season. One lucky goal by a crap Palace isn't going to change that.

It's because we haven't even given a crap Palace even one little thing to think about that I'm so concerned, not that we've lost the game. 

If you wanted to take positives from this performance, what could you take? Heaton maybe. Can't think of much else.

Yup, they've been quite poor. We've been worse. These are the types of games we need to be winning if we're going to get 40 points on the board.

Palace's results really haven't been that bad.  They lack goals, we lack goals - it was always going to be a tight game with the odd goal to win it.

 

This place is pretty infuriating for bedwetting after any sort of bad result.  Going to be a long season.

Every cross we've put in has been pretty much stamped out, no service whatsoever to Wesley, our midfield as been way to ineffective today.
