    My maths tells me Huddersfield are top.

    Easy peasy is this PL lark.

    Just watching MOTD. Beastly tackle from Fosu. That pace.
    Seemed to be the only decent thing from Palace's side.

    Any Palace fans see more of the story than MOTD showed?

    A bit, but we've got the personnel to finish top 10. Not convinced this lot will master FdB's methods though. We'll probably end up making our regular firefighter appointment after Christmas!

    Fosu-Mensah and Loftus-Cheek were quality. Shame neither are ours permanently.

    Fair play to Wagner btw. Most gracious winning interview you'll ever see.

    They did say on MOTD you seemed more suited when trying to get the ball moving quicker using Benteke's power and the pace out wide rather than playing the ball around.

    Huddersfield brought a lot of overseas players who easily dealt with the Championship so maybe it won't be such a surprise if they settle in quickly in the Premier league under a decent manager.

    Yeah Huddersfield's squad seems built for the PL. The majority are athletic units. Add a bit of organisation and they're set.

    Have to admit I thought their defence would be weak (especially considering their goal diff last season) but they were pretty solid today.

    FdB's going to have to go back to basics if he wants to keep himself in a job for a while. Today was probably a big wake-up call. Going forward we looked fine but the defence was an utter shambles. A million miles away from the Pulis/Allardyce teams.

    Our GD last year was not down to defence, that was pretty solid, but down to our lack of goals.

    We are in deep shit if we keep that system. Don't be stubborn, de Boer. Go back to the 4-3-3 and ease in the change in style

    **** Hennessey, Ward and Jason "give it away and run in circles with the ball" Puncheon off as well. None of them are good enough. Tomkins in for Dann as well.

    we created **** all when passing it around when they sat back 2nd half, we just don't have the playmakers to make things happen nor the movement off the ball to create space. TBH this is why I'd like to have seen Lokilo, at least he'd have dragged them out of position a bit like v Schalke.

    fair play to Town, they were excellent off and on the ball. Mooy is class. Their keeper made Hennessey look every bit the shithouse he is as well.

    Thought Loftus-Cheek and Fosu-Mensah played well AJ but overall the 3 kids along with a new system and style of football was asking for trouble.

    But yeah we probably could have played any personnel yesterday and the result would have been the same. Other than to the end of Allardyce's time, we've only looked capable of getting a result at home when Pulis was in charge. That has to change, we can't keep on getting miracle results away at Liverpool and Chelsea etc.


    You know how it is mate, sometimes you've got to hold your hands up and give credit where it's due.
