An absolute fairytale from almost three years ago seemingly about to be in liquidation to being promoted to return to the Premier League.

When we lived in Northants, my neighbour was a mad Palace fan - always used to be chanting something about Stevie Coppell's army. Wolves were usually that bit better so I used to enjoy teasing him.

How the worm has turned :-0 Palace in Premier and Wolves in First :-( :-(

But I am very pleased for you, Joy. Great day. Just about to watch it on telly. :-) :-)

I'm pleased for you Joy but so much more pleased for BHA - we won't have to suffer the clashes of fans in this so called local derby.

PS I.m not an Albion fan either

Thank you, Phyll. :-)

The so called local derby being the fault of Venables and Mullery:

For RolloTheRed:

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish says there are no plans to try to get winger Wilfried Zaha back on loan from Manchester United.
Zaha, 20, signed for United in January but stayed on at Palace to help them win promotion to the Premier League via the Championship play-off final.
"Wilfried deserves his chance to go to Manchester United with a view to making it there," Parish told BBC Radio 4.
"I think he is good enough and will figure in their first team."

Work for the Premier League will start immediately and with players such as Danny Gabbidon and hero Phillips coming to the end of their contracts, Parish knows the playing staff will need to be invested in if the Eagles are to stay in the promised land.

“There are a few things we need to address immediately such as player contracts,” he said.

“We have a few first team players who are out of contract so we will sit down with them.

“Glenn (Murray) looks like being out for six to nine months and Wilf (Zaha) is off to Manchester United, so we have a lot of work to do this summer.

“We clearly need some new faces and to invest, so we will do that.”

Rooney's free. He may be attracted to a palace in London :-)

I saw in my paper today that the Manager has stated that Kevin Phillips can play for Palace till he's 60. Be surprised is he does not get another season (even if only cameos). So many good players now of a certain age - and still playing at top of their game. Certainly Bellers has been a great star at Cardiff.

Dear Joyous


Well done to Crystal Palace!

I watched a bit of the ladies FA cup final.

It was well played football.

It was a shame the final was not held at a bigger stadium.

Take gentle care
Best wishes

Well done and congratulations to you, Joy, for always being a loyal supporter! :-)


JustJohn Report 29 May 2013 08:36

Joy. I watched game last night and saw the Chairman and presumably Board. But no Peter Morley, President.

You may remember he was one of my Tesco bosses many years ago and I kept in touch with him till relatively recently. He was a very nice man, a very dynamic man and an excellent retailer. Got CBE for his career in retail.

I am just wondering if he was there at the match or if he is now too frail to attend. He must be mid 80's now. If he is still living at same address in Bromley, I might just drop him a line as he must be so excited with what Simon Jordan has achieved :-D :-D

Well it will be nice to have another PL ground in London and an even better place for the Gunners to have a day out without having to go to the wilds of Lancashire. The annual beanfeasts with the Seagulls and Millwall will be replaced by games with Fulham, Chelsea and Southampton. Somebody will have to add the King's Road to the team TomTom.

It is a nice idea to keep Kevin Phillips on but it won't fly. Hull and Palace are going to find that upping their game to the speed (especially), power and ruthlessness of the PL a big ask. They have never managed it before.

Cardiff is the only one of the promoted teams who might stay up. Just look at the next season's fixture list. Where are Palace going to find 45 points from ? Maybe they can find some useful guys in Harry Redknapp's upcoming boot sale.

Still the parachute will come in handy.

Thank you, BC and Elizabeth. :-)

No, John, I hadn't remembered that.

RolloTheRed, I believe it was thought that both Norwich and Swansea would have difficulty staying in the Premier League; they have done quite well so far :)
I say - che sarà sarà :)

I understand that the next season's fixture list will be published on 19th June.

From this morning
Peter Ramage and Owen Garvan have signed new two-year deals at the club, ensuring the pair will remain at Selhurst Park until June 2015.

Whatever may be ... right now I am still on cloud 9 :-)
