Re: And A Pardew in a Pear Tree!!

What I find most distasteful about this is that what I read in the Guardian online last night: the two American co-owners - note, not the English ones - had got Sam to prepare a dossier on Palace's faults several weeks ago (!) The Yanks have, it seems, got the dosh to spend, not the English, despite perhaps superior shareholding, and money's talked. Despite a Palace run that's been the worst of the 92, a stat I wasn't aware of, I'm still a bit sorry for Pardew, particularily since the most recent losses included a ManU one secured by a blatant piece of Ibrahimovic cheating, and going down by a single goal to runaway leaders the B***s. I would have backed Pardew to sort the very obvious defensive faults in the January window, but we'll never know. There has been some fine attacking football of late, very pleasing on the eye. Credit to Sam for acknowledging Pardew's purchasing acumen in this area. Palace will, I'm sure, end the season comfortably mid table, but, yup, there's a bitter taste.
