Your thoughts for posterity.

Please also vote for your man of the match. Remember if you are voting immediately after the game that you cannot change your vote, so you may want to take some time to consider your choice.

I don't care what anyone may say, I'd have taken a draw over a loss all day. I never want to see Villa lose, no matter what the occasion or circumstances.

We can easily put a second string out in the 2nd leg that is capable of beating them, especially with home advantage.

Not to mention that our second string seems to want to win cup games more than our first string does.

fair result in the end, hard worked game in which we started well but got steadily worse as the game went on, palace battled hard and deserved the replay. Officials were dire today, utterly useless.

Fans were men of the match, awesome stuff guys!

Carew needs to go and A. Young needs to buck his ideas up a bit.

I'm sorry what makes you think that? Minus Gabby that was our first choice 11 out there today!

Yeah a second string is going to manage just fine!

Poor performance, we're struggling badly to create chances now.

How many saves did their keeper have to make, a couple, half a dozen?

Well, it's good to still be in the FA Cup and I have no doubt we will finish them off at VP. However, it could well dent our chances of winning the League Cup. We really could (and should) have won today, despite not playing very well.

The ref was shocking, as was the linesman. The funny part was when the linesman made Young move the ball onto the line for a corner in the second half, despite Palace scoring from a corner taken outside.....

Absolutely fuming with the commentary on ITV aswell. So biased it was ubelievable. Our away support was fantastic and deserved more praise than their crappy home support.

Anyway, job almost done, despite not playing very well. We'll do them in the replay.

It was exactly the same against Doncaster last year. Full team, drew 0-0 away. 2nd team, won 3-1 at home.

They will be less up for it, there will be more space on the pitch and it won't be so hostile.

We should have enough quality to see them off although it's still a tough game.

Loved Petrov exploding into the box like a bullet train for the equalizer.

The officiating was dreadful IMO. Inconsistent the whole way through.

Palace's first goal, the linesman didn't give a **** when the ball was way outside the quadrant, but when Young placed it on the edge, the linesman wanted it further back.

Also both offside calls against Delph(when he was through on goal) and Delfouneso were so obviously incorrect, that linesman really ought to be sacked.

Delph's yellow card and the subsequent free-kick given to Palace was another baffling decision.

Shit refereeing. But our performance didn't help either.

Why isn't there more people in the box attacking crosses?

So many times Young or Downing gets in good crosses and at most only 2 players are in there trying to get on the end of it - most of the time it's crosses into an empty box.

For all we know they might decide...Villa create jack shit we can have them.

Your right though, very tough.
