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.
