    Got back from Blackpool in time to watch Palace versus Coventry and I would just like to say a BIG thank you to West Ham for the equaliser that put Crystal Palace in to the play-offs.

    What a mighty job Ian Dowie has done for The Eagles.

    Not sure of our chances in the play-offs though going by todays horrid performance against Coventry. But I'm sure we'll make the most of it.

    not only did Brian Deane help you, we mustn't forget also the pedigree of your current manager!
    See you at Cardiff!

    Congratulations to Palace. I hope you go on to join us in the Premiership.
    Only thing now to complete my season is for West Ham to put Ips**** well and truly in their place in the first leg. :twisted: :twisted:

    It really pains me to say it but well done Palace on reaching the a terrier I still have nightmares about Dougie (Is that how it's spelt???) Freedman relegating us from Div 1 with a goal in the last five mins of the season 3 seasons ago!!!

    I don't care.

    I stand by my signature, no matter what West Ham's fate by the end of May.

    My idea of Heaven - West Ham promoted, Pardew resigns, Brown is dismissed.

    Hammers for ever... ... ... ...

    Have to agree about the binmen from Portaloo Road. However well done Palace. So pleased for you :D :D :D

    Don't you Norwich fans care for a local derby? Premiership wouldn't be the same for Arsenal fans without Spurs! I'd have thought you'd have wanted Ipswich to come up with you so that you get the chance to stuff 'em !

    Anyway, what chances a W Ham v C Palace play off final? If that happens it would seem virtually pointless having the final in Cardiff, why not somewhere like Stamford Bridge?

    You are seriously saying that you wouldn't want to see Spurs relegated???!!

    Last season was probably the greatest of my life. I said in then, I'll say it now;

    Let's All Laugh At Sunderland. HAHAHAHAHAH!!!

    so your manager gets you promoted and you sack him? Don't have a Russian friend called Roman do you?

    Yup. Wouldn't you get a thrill out of beating Sunderland if they get promoted? Maybe derby games don't mean so much anymore?

    As a shareholder, I get both the accounts in full and all the stuff from Whistle. At the end of the day, any publicly owned company is accountable to its shareholders (in this case, mugs like myself). Removing Terence Brown as Chairman is a rather pointless move as he has a significant number of shares and would therefore retain his influence regardless of his position as Chairman. He also has the other 2 major shareholders full confidence.
    To achieve change at the club, Brown, Cearns & Warner not only have to go, they have to sell on their shareholding, which I don't see happening. (some of the shares held in their names are on behalf of a trust anyway).

    Whilst Whistle have made a number of good points, they are currently barking up the wrong tree with the current campaign. The supporters trust haven't been seen for a while. There's just not enough people who can use their vote to enforce change.

    On the pitch, well. that's a different matter - No band for me next Tuesday as I'll be at the academy that is West Ham United - Come on you Irons!

    I've no relationship to anyone called Roman, no, and what he's doing is despicable.

    I DO NOT LIKE PARDEW!! Simple as that, really.

    My opinion, and I'm entitled to it, but your views may vary and I'm not asking you to agree.

    And after all, after Chelsea's trophyless season, fans are entitled to adopt a 'Life of Brian' persona and ask 'What has the Roman ever done for us?'

    :roll: :lol:

    A very amusing diity for any non newcastle fans. Although even the fans that watch the matches couldn't even stay to cheer the team round the pitch.

    Yeah I'd get a thrill (and have done before :p ), but I'd rather they rotted in the Nationwide!!

    Just want to wish West Ham all the very best at Portaloo Road today. I hope that they stuff Ipswich and make the 2nd leg meaningless.

    It makes me laugh, Fat Joe still states that his team are the best football side in division 1, well hopefully they will prove that next season like this and still not get promoted!
