Well I only managed to see the second half, so as far as I'm concerned we lost 1-0. Appalling performance, and if we continue to play like that we will be relegated this season. FSG won't give us any money to buy anybody, to ensure they can sell the club for a profit. The table lies. You will see I am right.

"im happy we won and im not 1 to complain but Pool have such lapses in concentration its going to end up costing us. especially the senior players, im dissapointed with all of them. if we kept the high tempo Palace would have never scored. im putting most of this to Gerrard cause he's captain and did a few sloppy passes. maybe he's tired/injured i dont know but he seems slow."

"Brilliant Guys!! Just wish you could do as good in the second half of games as you do in the first half. Perhaps BR's soothing Irish tones send you to sleep. I think BR is proving to be a very good manager, but perhaps he should get someone else to do the half time pep talk."

Henderson, finally in his trade-mark position looked back alive. Moses needs to be seated, lacked any enthu off the ball. Overall, we should improve our finishing I believe. SAS Rules!!! YNWA"

We already have a few injuries why go out and risk getting more when palace are never going to put three past us. Still at the pointy end of the table no cause for concern."
