Not sure if this has already been commented upon (so apologies if so) but our referee on Saturday is Michael Salisbury who is doing his first ever PL game after one season in the championship. Even the Premier League appointments website has spelt his surname incorrectly. He was described as producing one of the most inept displays ever seen by an elite official after the West Brom v Fulham game and in his first 7 games this season had shown 5 reds and 20 yellows. Perfect.

How the fcuk has he got promoted then ?

I'd still prefer him to Kevin Friend.

Friend still hasn't reffed us in a competitive game since that Palace game.

That's quite a punishment. Unless we've asked for him specifically not to ref our games.

Having said that at least he wasn't telling Watford players he wanted an assist for letting play continue for their first goal in the opening game of the season...

Mike Dean. A character he is.

Thatís a good spot re Friend. Heís reffed Liverpool games 8 times since that Palace game, but not once for us. I hope he never does again. C***.

Didnít he ref our pre season friendly at Bristol City where he was getting dogs abuse and booked the away end.

He handled that quite well to be fair to him.

No way! Playing like a Rory Delap-idated team was Deano's final fatal mistake. Never again.

Just had my palace ticket holder father in law round .  He says Palace are hopeless against set pieces and the goalie dont come for crosses , great shot stopper mind.

He said 1-1

Matty Cash to the touchline, calling Matty Cash (and his towel) to the touchline.


Rick Wakeman's probably on it in training .

I think he did, but think it's almost certain, we have asked for him not to ref any of our league or cup games, as he's reffing a Prem league match usually every other weekend, plus cup games.

Mings will get sent off for decking Zaha, who will score 2.

Ings will then come on to replace Watkins who has single-handedly knackered their whole defence. He'll scroe a hat-trick, and Targett will leave one on Zaha, fairly and he'll have to go off injured. We will then bring on Archer and Chukwuemeka and score another 2.

2-5

It'll probably be Davis, not Archer, so make that just one more.

I see we have everyone travelling apart from Trez and glass man Bert.

Would really like to see what we have been missing with Sanson

Itís the story of Sansom and Delilah. His strength was in his hair, so Delilah cut it off and all his powers were gone.

They haven't won many games, but seem hard to beat. If we keep a clean sheet we should win. If we don't, then a draw would be a good compromise.
