I wish this board could get back to how it used to be when it replaced CM.

Re: Sell out the palace game

If we can win 4 of our next 6 games (big ask I know). Then we would be on 30 points at the halfway point of the season which would not only put us a massively long way to being safe but would be a fantastic platform to attempt to push on and challenge for 5th / 6th / 7th place. All together now.......
