    Boo on us - but well done Palace

    It's been awhile since a true Giant-killing act has been done, so it was with a smile on my face that I read of the South London clubs feat at Old Trafford (something we've not been able to do in yonks!).

    Good on them!

    Us? We fielded a fairly strong team this time out in the Europa, but with no King or Dawson to anchor the middle of defense, we gave away two quick sloppy goals and that was all she wrote. Yes we attacked and attacked and attacked, but the opponents held out (ind of like the luck we've been having to date read: Fulham!

    Let's hope this doesn't start a pattern and that it was just the absence of Captain King and a couple of others.

    • Great result for Palace (my second most favourite team).

      As for Spurs.....OUCH!

      • The worst thing about it (aside from twice having the ball in the net in the second half but never getting a goal... and the ref...) was that the team out there SHOULD have won; it was a weakened side, but by no means a weak one. And I know we'll all disagree on this for hours, but I really fundamentally disagree with strategic losing; it's not the right way to play the game.

        Wonder what odds I'd get on a 5-0 at Shamrock Rovers and 2-1 to PAOK (particularly given they've already qualified) for the final group games?? Worth a go...
