Crystal palace vs. Pompey




Palace V Pompey

Pompey make what is relatively a short trip to South London and Selhurst park on tuesday night, still in search of a maiden win.

Vital Quotes:

Selhurst park has been a regular host over the years and Palace a regular throughout the divisions since the 60's. Both teams are a bit downtrodden right now, administration has come to us both and both of us sit at the wrong end of the table.
Palace do have one win to their name, since then though it has been straight defeats, while Pompey have turned the smallest of small corners after a more optimistic display on Saturday.

Pompey also have the Carling cup result to gloat about, it took penalties but we came through in the end after dominating the early proceedings of the match.

Crystal palace Team News:

Zaha is suspended, while Darren Ambrose is still struggling with a leg injury. Davids may return after missing the weekend defeat at Reading, while Palace have delved into the loan market and may give home debuts to Vaughan and Gardner.

Player to watch: Vaughan

Seemed to be another of the bright young things coming through at Everton, a few freaky injuries have curtailed his progress and Palace is the next step in his attempts for greatness.

Pompey Team News:

Pompey will be largely unchanged after a decent showing against Ipswich, Mokoena is doubtful after leaving the pitch via st.John's ambulance, Brown is waiting to reclaim his place though after surprisingly being dropped.
Joel Ward looks likely to continue at right-back after the proposed move for Kyle Naughton drags on.

Player to watch: Mullins

Muggins started his career at Palace, after moving into midfield after his stint in defence he has looked far more comfortable.

Match Facts & Stats

Pompey have the better record this millennium, our last defeat was the 4-2 home defeat shocker in a relegation battle in 2001, our last defeat to Palace at Selhurst was a 4-0 slapping in 1999.
Overall palce have won 20, Pompey 13.

I've gone for a Pompey win- no one will be surprised to read
10 russ? lol.
With my keen eye can I point out that KO is 20:00 and not 19:45 as stated. Not sure why though.
Oh I so so wanted to go to this match tonight, but work has made sure that I just can't go. (Jobs huh, who needs it?) Hope its a cracking atmosphere though, and I really do think we're going to win tonight. Play Up Pompey!
Hi all. Please someone, explain to this plum of a manager that muggins, ashdown, hughes and nuggatt are not good enough for Havant, let alone Pompey. Why oh why oh f****g why does he not try the kids?????? Ritchie, Martin, Gregory and O'Brian. Puts Pack on loan to Eastbourne????????? Eastbourne!!!!! Cotterell has NO idea, NONE! Under 19 England international keeper, dropped to reserves. League 2 keeper brought in!????? WTF? Cotterell you are worse than the jokers that were Alain Perrin Tony Adams and Vladimir Zechech or what ever his name was.
Oh by the way, 50% of the goals this season that we let in, will be down to the shocking keeper Ashdown! There was a reason Pompey released you and noone signed you. Thanks Mr Cotterell for getting this crap back! Try O'Brian! Try Ritchie, try Cifti, try the youngens. They will defo not be as bad as the mugs I have mentioned.
Sorry, Obrian at Eastbourne!!!!! Pack at Cheltenham. Sorry. Ashdown at fault again tonight! Bloody rubbish Cotterell!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Veccccio, tell me, in your opinion, what our youngsters have done to prove theyre worth a start over the current first team pros? I'd really love to know. If you think a team with Pack, gregory, Obrian starting would have got a better result at Palace yesterday you're living in a dreamland. I assume you have some sort of football management qualificiation or experience? something that justifies why you think you know so much better than Cotterill? Have you been hiding in the bushes at Eastleigh and seen something EVERYONE else has missed? anything? No......thought not.
Oh dear, lets forgive this poor misguided person, who clearly favours Mullins Ashdown, Nugent and Hughes. Clearly Steve Cotterill is going to continue with these plums, so everyone shall see how little you know! My opinion is that he should give the young ones a go, as opposed to the dross we have there currently! Average age of Palace team by the way was 22. OBrian, England under 19 keeper, no mean feat, but is kept out by a bricky who is shocking! His fault agin last night for 2 goals. If you are good enough, you are old enough. If you are going to be obtuse suac51, go do it in your own room in the phsyche ward.
