Crystal Palace may have just been done by the worst VAR decision since Bamford.
I like it. What is it?

Thought the 2nd goal was offside as well.

You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

I think we've all been there.
Played in a Sunday League team as a young shaver, where the centre forward would skin up before, at half time and after a match ... and pass a hip flask around.
Incredibly, we got promoted.

Who do you want to go down?

My preference would be..

Burnley (its time)
Newcastle (for obvious reasons)
Everton (doubtful)

Narch to hang on so they can be shite next season, Watford also can be shite and have 4 managers next year.

Don’t disagree with these. Don’t particularly hate Everton but they’ve not been relegated since the 50s and it’s always good to see a ‘proper name’ go.

yeah the reason why I would like them to go is because they seem like they have thrown a lot of money around and have been badly run and I like chaos.

Particularly joyous if Fat Frank takes them down, too.

That would be up there with the Dog Botherers scoring our promotion securing goal.

Fat Frank now the favourite and preferred candidate to get the gig at Everton. Please let this happen. It would make me very happy. Please please please.

So they have actually announced they have offered him the job? Bit weird.

I didn’t realise that Lampard is officially, statistically, the worst Chelsea manager in their time in the Prem.

Good stuff.

Imagine being an Everton supporter. Just over two years ago Ancelotti is signed and things are looking up. Then a blow with Agent Rafa and now Lampard. The horror for them and the laughs for everyone else. If Frank can concede 60 goals a season at Chelsea imagine…

Think Watford will be there saving grace. Roy takes a while to get going he didn’t win any of the first 8 games when he took over palace and no wins in 7 at Fulham too.

Have never had anything against Everton. Always a nice counter-point to Liverpool, even if they haven't been at Liverpool's level in ages. Cool stadium and their fans seem to be (from afar) kind of like us in their fervor.

But if they hire Lampard? They can chow down on some ass-flavored toffee.

It also brings to mind the nightmare scenario to end all nightmare scenarios: Frank Lampard's Everton pipping us for survival.

Or, glass half-full? Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds pipping Lampard's Everton for survival.

I'll take the latter, please.

Everton will survive, Fragile Frank will be praised by his media chums. He will be sacked by Christmas.

Realistically they will stay up and so will we. The bottom teams are not just going to start averaging 2 points a game and that’s what they need to do. We need less than 1 ppg to be safe and we are going to have games where we pick up points even at our worse we can win and we perform when the chips are down. It’s might not be comfortable or fun. We should have been home and dry after the first half. Newcastle are shite and are not magically going to win a tonne of games. Watford are awful too. And Burnley’s back log of games will make it very difficult for them as there squad is small too. Narch might be looking ok now but they have only beaten the teams below them.

7 points is a big gap 2 more wins as I think we will be good.

With all the injuries we have still managed to win 5 games in 21. Same again for the back end of the season and it’s done. Gotta enjoy the process before we know it we will be saying good by to Marcelo and could be on the manager merry go round.

Seems Ivan Toney feels the same way about Brentford that we all do
