    No mate, I went for my wee at half time.
    I may be old but I'm still in control of my bladder thanks.
    Yes Palace had, in my eyes, two very good chances, which they spurned.
    However they did defend resolutely and very deeply at times, too deeply i felt as that meant they couldn't get the ball away and invited more attacks.

    They did get numbers forward, after all two is a number, but rarely did they get three, the magic number, beyond the half way line.

    I was impressed with Palace first half. After expecting them to park the bus. The miss by Loftus Cheek was huge for them. Problem is that they haven't scored in the league and are shipping goals at the back, that is relegation form.

    Apologies if you thought I made an ageist remark, not my intention.
    I am pushing 60 myself. We can compare notes 're Palace at the end of season.

    Yup it is 38 games in a season,well spotted,however at the end of November they'll have played 14 and as I say,on the evidence I saw on Saturday will be lucky to have any points,but yup,they might hit the post once or twice during those games,easier game next week ? I wish, probably end up shipping 5 there as well unfortunately

    Huge three points for Brighton yesterday. Other than Palace I'd say there's around 5 or so teams I could see taking the other two places in going down.

    Anyone still have any true belief that Palace will still stay up? I'm sure the owners have one eye on planning for the Championship.

    I still think we could be dragged into it with our dodgy defence
