They were indeed, in April 2018? Have they not won at least a couple of times at city in the last few years?
What I don’t get about the penalty retake for Palace is why a different player can take the penalty surely you recreate the same conditions?Just watching just now, and the striking thing is the retake of the penalty. Cast your mind back to the LCF and corrupt Officials that couldn’t see their Scum Goalie shaking hands with Alfie who was so off his line. There again I suppose we’ve got to accept it.
True, ups and downs.Most managers will have one or two I suppose. But yeah they weren’t exactly managerial spells to look back on fondly.
Did get Fulham to a UEFA cup final though.
True, ups and downs.
The Fulham run was decent and at a time English sides often overlooked the competition. They beat Juventus in the semi final, albeit a Juventus still recovering from demotion.
The Liverpool and England spells really didn’t do his profile well, both being so high profile.
None since Robson, although Southgate will presumably buck the trend (assuming there is no WC exit to Panama lying in wait).
I lived on Derby rd in Croydon when Palace had Wright and Bright scoring for fun. They made it to the FA cup final, and Croydon was a wash with Red and Blue. Every pub or party played “glad all over” by the Dave Clark 5, and the place would go mental.I live in Croydon, so they are my local team. I know a few fans. They always seem to be a side that grinds it out. I don’t like them but their tactics at the big sides seem to work.
I agree, it wasn't a penalty and the decision to make it be retaken was bonkers. What I don't get is why they were allowed to change players though - surely if Ayew took the penalty and missed it should have been him retaking it. Although, granted it's not a rule I am really up to speed on. Just seems a little unfair after making the penalty be retaken after missing you get to pick a new player to take it.The penalty was never a penalty. And then the refs let them take it twice. Farcical refereeing.
And the mile offside goal.....Just watching just now, and the striking thing is the retake of the penalty. Cast your mind back to the LCF and corrupt Officials that couldn’t see their Scum Goalie shaking hands with Alfie who was so off his line. There again I suppose we’ve got to accept it.
Think Robson is the only one in my lifetime. Southgate stands a very good chance of doing it, which is pretty funny considering he’s probably been the least fancied of the lot.
