Crystal Palace must be our most "meh" fixture of the entire season.

Home win.

I live in Croydon so it's not meh for me - so much so that we're having a family outing to B6 on Sunday. I know quite a few palace fans. Year 11 reckon a draw, I think I agree!

Iím in Streatham. We must meet up sometime.

Opta stats

Aston Villa won the reverse fixture against Crystal Palace 2-1 in November. They've not done the league double over the Eagles since 1980-81, a season they last won the top-flight title.

Crystal Palace have won just one of their nine Premier League away games against Aston Villa (D3 L5), winning 1-0 in December 2013. The Eagles have never scored more than once at Villa Park in the competition, failing to score on each of their last four visits.

Aston Villa have lost six of their seven Premier League games on a Sunday this season, including each of the last four in a row. The exception was a 2-1 home win against Leicester back in December.

Crystal Palace have won consecutive league games for just the second time this season, with the Eagles last winning more in a row between February and June 2020 (4).

I didn't know that Palace used to play in Claret and Blue until some point in the 70s...

I was told we gave them their colours.

A former Villa employee became their manager and chose their colours. Malcolm Allison had them change to red and (a darker) blue in the 70s, inspired by Barcelona. They played in all white, inspired by Real Madrid, for a couple of seasons in the sixties before going back to our colours.

They were set up in an attempt to create the Aston Villa of the south. Our assistant became their secretary.

Think Zaha might be the biggest wind-up shitebag in the League?

Balloono Fernandez?

Why would you whip your mobile phone out during pens?
