  1. 5th October 2019 I still feel that we can gain a mid table finish. We just need to get that first win out of the way.
  2. 5th October 2019 - Premier League - Matchday 8 Starting XI: Hennessey; Kelly, Tomkins, Sakho, Van Aanholt; Kouyate*, Milivojevic; Camarasa, Townsend, Zaha; Ayew**. Subs: Henderson, Ward, Riedewald, Dann, McCarthy, Schlupp*, Benteke** A match that we had to win. Guaita and Meyer both got injured on the eve of the match so we had to make a few changes. We had 24 shots on goal in this match in comparison to Villa's 5 yet we still came away without a point. We battered them first half, Townsend had a few good chances while Zaha missed an open goal- I just knew it was going to happen. We have now gone 8 matches without a win in the league and I am starting to worry for my job. The confidence is dropping within the squad. Crystal Palace MOTM: Andros Townsend (7.4) League Position: 19th Next Opponent: Bournemouth (H)
  3. 28th September 2019 - Premier League - Matchday 7 Starting XI: Guaita; Kelly, Tomkins, Sakho, Van Aanholt; Kouyate**, Camarasa*, Milivojevic; Townsend, Zaha; Ayew. Subs: Hennessey, Ward, Riedewald, Schlupp, McCarthy, Meyer*, Benteke** The win wasn't there but the performance most definitely was. I changed the shape a little and went for three in midfield as Kouyate came in for Meyer. Ayew replaced Benteke and grabbed a brace. We went ahead but Liverpool were too good second half. I thought we'd managed to get an equaliser late on but Milivojevic hit the bar from range. Aston Villa next- huge game for us. Crystal Palace MOTM: Jordan Ayew (8.8) League Position: 19th Next Opponent: Aston Villa (A)
  4. 28th September 2019 Another favourable draw in the Carabao. Lets hope I am in charge in a month's time to be able to manage it.
  5. 24th September 2019 - Carabao Cup - Third Round Starting XI: Guaita; Kelly, Tomkins*, Riedewald**, Van Aanholt; Milivojevic**, Camarasa; Townsend, Meyer, Zaha; Benteke. Subs: Hennessey, Ward, Sakho*, Kouyate**, McCarthy, Schlupp, Ayew***. I played a strong side as I thought the lads needed a boost after a tough few weeks. We were on top from start to finish and convincingly won, as expected. James Tomkins was given his first start of the season and did well. We face Liverpool at home next so it's going to be another tough one. I just hope the board give me the time I need to turn this around. Crystal Palace MOTM: Patrick Van Aanholt (8.6) Next Opponent: Liverpool (H)
  6. 20th September 2019 - Premier League - Matchday 6 Starting XI: Guaita; Kelly, Cahill, Sakho, Van Aanholt; Milivojevic, Camarasa; Zaha, Meyer, Townsend; Benteke*. Subs: Hennessey, Ward, Riedewald, Schlupp, McArthur, Kouyate, Ayew* This is driving me insane. Once again we did enough to win the game but didn't take our chances. At two all, I decided to push on for the win which in hindsight was a poor decision. Leicester scored two late goals to make it six matches without a win in the league. Morecambe up next in the cup. Crystal Palace MOTM: Vicente Guaita (7.7) League Position: 18th Next Opponent: Morecambe (A)
  7. 15th September 2019 - Premier League - Matchday 5 Starting XI: Guaita; Kelly, Cahill, Sakho, Van Aanholt; Milivojevic, Camarasa; Zaha, Meyer*, Townsend**; Benteke***. Subs: Hennessey, Ward, Riedewald, Schlupp*, McArthur, Kouyate**, Ayew*** Any other time, I am sure I would be delighted with a draw against Chelsea but to throw a two-goal lead away is a tough one to take. Victor Camarasa kept up his fine form with a screamer from range before Zaha grabbed his first goal of the season. Our search for our first league win goes on but we have grabbed draws against Arsenal and Chelsea which is pleasing, I guess. Crystal Palace MOTM: Victor Camarasa (8.3) League Position: 18th Next Opponent: Leicester (A)
  8. 12th September 2019 Another backup player injured.
  9. 9th September 2019 Not a key player for us but the squad is looking pretty bare now.
  10. 1st September 2019 - Premier League - Matchday 4 Starting XI: Hennessey; Kelly, Cahill, Sakho, Van Aanholt; Milivojevic, Camarasa; Zaha, Meyer, Townsend; Benteke*. Subs: Guaita, Dann, Riedewald, Schlupp*, McArthur, Kouyate, Ayew We were unlucky in this one. I decided to go for Wayne Hennessey instead of Guaita and that backfired. He should of done better on both of their goals. Meyer grabbed his first goal of the season but we struggled after Kelly was sent off for a second yellow. Zaha had a goal ruled off late on for offside. We have two weeks off now before we host Chelsea at home. Early days but we have dropped into the relegation zone which is a worry. Crystal Palace MOTM: Maximilian Meyer (7.7) League Position: 18th Next Opponent: Chelsea (H)
  11. 1st September 2019 Well deserved. He's been great for me so far.
  12. 29th August 2019 Another favourable draw in the Carabao.
  13. 27th August 2019 - Carabao Cup - Second Road Starting XI: Hennessey; Kelly, Riedewald, Cahill, Van Aanholt; McArthur, Camarasa*; Townsend**, Meyer, Zaha***; Benteke. Subs: Guaita, Dann, Sakho, McCarthy**, Milivojevic, Kouyate*, Ayew***. Nice to get our first win on the board despite an early scare. We played a few of the fringe players and they all did well. Not got much out of Zaha yet this season which is a worry, I really was expecting much more from him- Meyer too. Back to the league next as we have a tough away day at Wolves. Crystal Palace MOTM: Martin Kelly (8.9) Next Opponent: Wolves (A)
  14. 24th August 2019 - Premier League - Matchday 3 Starting XI: Guaita; Kelly, Cahill, Sakho, Van Aanholt; Milivojevic, Camarasa**; Zaha, Meyer*, Townsend; Ayew***. Subs: Hennessey, Dann, Riedewald, McCarthy, McArthur*, Kouyate**, Benteke*** This one was a really tough one to take. We were denied our first win of the season after West Ham equalised late on from a corner. I made a few changes with Martin Kelly and Gary Cahill coming in at the back in place of the injured Joel Ward and Scott Dann. I also switched over Zaha and Townsend on the wings behind Ayew. Victor Camarasa bagged another goal and overall we played well but just couldn't hold on to the win. We need to get that first win on the board. Cup game up next so a chance for a few of the fringe players to play. Crystal Palace MOTM: Victor Camarasa (8.8) League Position: 15th Next Opponent: MK Dons (H)
  15. 17th August 2019 Shame to lose him but in Martin Kelly we have an adequate replacement.
