Still not convinced by Sagna but it's a team well capable of winning.

WTF no Bony and no striker on the subs bench.

It is hard not to get pissed off with Pelles aimless rotation. No wonder players lose form and motivation.

Why is Yaya starting? He does not deserve to start, on recent performances.

Mangala, Zabaleta and Milner on the bench again, because they are 'important' players.

At least Nasri is getting a good kick up his arse for his shite non-descript non-trying performances.

I would assume there is something up with Bony if he is not on the bench, same with Jovetic. It would be very odd indeed if he went into the game without a backup striker on the bench by choice.

Lets face it our defence is shocking and up front we always taken an extra touch or 3. We are not a good (effective) team too much posing and not enough urgency.

Forget summer transfers, not the issue. This is a team of immense talent underperforming. Pelle needs to explain that and his rotation policy which has failed spectacularly.

Because we have too many 75% players and we are badly set up and disorganised as a team.

Why do we keep starting just two in centre midfield when one of them is Yaya who is ok going forward but a liability defensively? It's fucking stupid and puts too much pressure on the other CM - Fernandinho tonight.

Saying that with so much possession we should be scoring more than once, Sergio needs to get his mojo back in time for the Swamp.

All that possession but we didn't trouble the keeper enough. Palace had very few attacks but looked like scoring with every one of them. No cutting edge and a dodgy back four - it is a very costly combination.

Didn't see this game, and not sure I'll bother watching the recording after reading some of the write ups...

...but not sure I need to. 74% possession; 22 shots (only four of which are on target); 13 corners; one goal and two conceded - says it all.

Why indeed do we persist with a two man central midfield when one of them can only build up a head of steam going forward - and then only when it suits him? Can't see the point of playing Navas and two strikers when we do this. Too many huge holes in the middle and immediate extra pressure put on an already dodgy back four.

Well done Pelle, it's actually quite the achievement to fail so bad with this team. The team would do better without a manager, and to even try to avoid top 4 intentionally would be quite the challenge. Yet Pelle makes it look so easy, well done!
