Well I think most of us knew that was coming, didn’t we?
We were again shocking and even the commentator summed it up when he said we look devoid of any fluidity or cohesiveness.
I think he forgot to mention the lack of any creativity or attacking threat or even quality in that particular sentence.
The game can be summed up on our part by saying Wiemann had a good chance very well saved a few minutes before full time.
And that’s it, for me. Palace were far the better side and make no mistake about it, saying that about any side that has Cameron Jerome in it just makes me feel totally sick. The fact that Puncheon and Bolasie looked a class above any of our players makes me feel worse.
I didn’t have a good feeling about this game from the off and picking a 5-3-2 against the mighty Palace didn’t help either, but what do I know?
Palace sat back and let us play for the first quarter of an hour or so, just to see what we offered, but the reality was we offered absolutely nothing.
We knocked the ball continually sidewards and backwards, making no headway whatsoever.
Until you could practically see the Palace players thinking “hold on a minute, they’re crap”.
Which was where they began to open their game up and show us up for the mugs that we unfortunately are.
And make no mistake about it.
We were incredibly poor. Again.
Anyway, that’s enough of that. I get thoroughly fed up of constantly having to say just how poor we are.
That’s one of the three games gone, where I said we really ought to get three points if Lambert has any chance whatsoever of keeping his job and the truth is I’m struggling to see where our next point is coming from.
I’ve heard lots of mention that we’re inconsistent, but that’s rubbish in my opinion.
We’re just totally lacking in quality all over the pitch.
If Lerner and Faulkner are seriously still thinking of extending Lambert’s contract now, well it’ll only prove how deluded they are.
