    I'm sure Leeds said the same thing, and it took two goes for you a few years back. And because you are playing it by the book, rather than taking the administration get out of jail free card, financially you won't have a huge advantage over a number of teams either, even with very good crowds.


    I think the comments were dead right, in that a 10 point penalty is almost no punishment. Palace could have £25 million of debt wiped out and their only loss is to finish 21st rather than 13th.

    Good luck next year. I was hoping you'd stay up because I really don't like Palace at all, but obviously it wasn't to be.

    Thanks. You make a good point. I think we'll be back in a year though. Fingers crossed anyway. ;)

    the fact that irv wants rid of all but two keepers likely means that grant's on his way out, as well. if so, he'll be missed ... which can't really be said about any of the others.

    tinge of sadness for simek, though ... nice goin' electrickeeper.

    Esajas released? I thought he was supposed to be one of your best players?

    I would think that some of these released are money-related in addition to performance-related. Esajas possibly one of them.

    I'm still in mourning.

    I do like Neil Mellor though.

    Well we should piss league 1... right? ;)

    Have you always been in 1000 Oaks? I mean since we've known each other on here?
    I used to live in San Mateo. A long time ago but still...

    That's what we said in 2003-04. I live in hope. It's a small town on the banks of denial.

    Yep, I moved here from Sheffield in the summer of 2005, a few months before I joined BigSoccer. San Mateo is San Francisco-ish area, right? I'm about 40 miles outside of Los Angeles.
