Palace envy

I know this is really childish and tribal but I loathe crystal palace . When I was at university in bath 40 years ago , all my mates knew that I would refuse to meet them in the pub in the middle of the city because it was called the Crystal Palace. The feeling has never left me . I love richard Murray not only because he gave us the great years of promotion and the premiership , but also because he offered to take Simon Jordan outside and sort him out.
Watching palace is soooo depressing. They are really good , but the football formula is very straightforward and quite easy to copy. They have 2 proper wingers bolasie and puncheon (both of whom sir Chris tried to sign – what did he know hey ?) and a skillful man mountain in midfield jedinak. Apart from that the rest of them are probably no better than our players. We’ve got one half decent winger in gudmunsson and nobody very imposing in midfield.
To add insult to injury the football commentators are transfixed by the unique atmosphere at sainsburys selhurst. The place is a complete dump and generates so good an atmosphere partly because the stadium is so decrepit , people stand up because either they can’t see any other way , there aren’t any useable seats, or it’s impossible to sit down without getting splinters.
For god’s sake Big Bob ask uncle Roland to get you one if not two really tricky strong wingers and a hard man lynchpin in midfield and in no time at all we can be brushing aside some second rate Spanish full backs ,Portuguese Central midfielders playing for Liverpool , Tottenham, West Brom, etc, etc .
