Crouch and Vydra are both different to what we have on the pitch, no sign of either though

Game over.

I just dont understand at times. Great subs against spurs.

Today losing and keep the same system just change the personel when it wasnt working.

Games like this show how bad our windows were.

We’ve a 38 year old on the bench to surprise them with you know. We can bypass midfield too. That’ll show ‘em.

it's not about the players at anybody's disposal as most teams in this league have better players. It's an inability to affect a game within it that cost us

Tactically outclassed today in every area of the pitch. They won every battle in every department. The result was only going 1 way. These astute managers that have been around for years and tactically adapt to the oppositions strengths and expose their weaknesses don't just throw out the same 11 week after week and expect the same approach to work every single week regardless of opponent.

Sometimes you've just got to doff your cap.

Crouch isn’t really an option. He’s bang average and more like a tourist attraction at the game than a footballer you expect to do anything.

Shambles today. Final ball of McNeil, Westwood and Bardsley was awful.

Crystal Palace pay their players over 100k a week. They shouldn't even be in the position they currently are. No surprise they defeated us so comfortably really.

Making subs late is becoming a habit-whats wrong with half time or just after if someone is having a quiet game

Same applies in team selection. Too many of our players have two or three bad games in a row then start the next one. Doesn't happen at Southampton, Newcastle, or Palace all near the bottom

Some positions are difficult to change ie the back four, but McNeil needs a rest and either Robbie or JBG should start. McNeil could be quite an impact in the last 20-25 minutes. We complain about having a small squad then dont change things when playing bad. Cork should also be rested but in this case do you start Hendrick & Westwood ??

What I'm trying to say is Palace have far superior players. Teams with far superior players beat teams like us 9 times out of 10. Luckily we beat Spurs that one time.

We felt at 2.0 down Crouch should have been on, when he did we saw what havoc he can cause.

We brought Brady on to put MORE high balls in. ( for the Palace centre halfs to easily clear )
Not sure what our other options are.

We’ve made half time substitutions 2 games running now and they’ve had no impact on the the outcome of the game.

It’s not the lack of changes in players that’s the problem it’s the lack of change in formation/tactics

Crouch's days of causing havoc are from a time in the past. He's no more than novelty value, the sort sometimes seen in charity games. A very poor acquisition. Vydra must have been disappointed for much of this season but to see Crouch getting on ahead/instead of him must make him despair.

TBF Crouch MIGHT be able to cause something to happen, even at 58 or whatever age he is, but he needs a half decent cross or two and today we couldn't get one in, despite having about 101 good opportunities.
