    The one in the foreground is a very rare "super cyberman" with bolt on extended cranial capacity ;). This model exhibited improved cognitive capabilities, but tended to overheat.

    Good coach though and as a long time Palace supporter he would be high on my list of wants.

    You're right, he's very dedicated to football - just not one of the "pretty boy" footballers :D
    I was just getting revenge for Palace beating Forest ;)

    That was a real shocker. We are currently so disorganized that any loss better than 3-0 is considered good. Too actually win was totally unexpected

    Tell me about it. 3rd football match I've been to in my life. After taking sound advice I had fiver on Palace losing by 3 goals. I was quite surprised.

    I didn't see the game, but that's a cracking result. Looks like he's put some guts back into the side.

    He certainly has turned Palace around. How do you rate your chances in the playoffs ?

    Very good as Palace are the form team. Sunday's loss at Coventry was the first one in seven games. They played dreadfully in the first half looking very nervous and absolutely clueless. Hopefully they will have their one bad game out of the way now and get back to normal for the next three games.

    Premiership here we come :lease:

    I saw the 2nd half and Palace could easily have won if they'd put all their chances away.

    For those not in the know - Glad All Over has been played before every home game for the last 40 years. It is legacy from the days of the wooden stands when up to 50,000 pairs of feet would crash down on the floor at the appropriate place in the song and certainly during the 70's my feet used to be amongst them every home game.

    then during the 80's he used his Zimmer frame instead...

    during the 90's he did it laying down...

    and now he just pays the wife to do it for him :laugh:

    Anyone else notice quite a few of the Sunderland players looking a bit chubby ? Perhaps Mick McCarthy is an 'old school pint at half time' sort of manager ?

    I couldn't get a ticket so will have to settle for the TV. Got plenty of lager in the fridge though.

    Cyberman or not, he must be the most valuable manager around at the moment. Not many could take a dispirited team from fourth from bottom to the Premiership in five short months, spending only £150,000 on the way.

    Roll on next season and bring on the big boys :thumbsup:

    Like Fulham!!! :thumbsup:
    I'm glad Palace are coming up...easy 18 points for most top half premiership teams with the 3 teams that came up :D ...none of them plan on spending any money. Just look what happened to Wolves and leicester. :thumbsdow
    Fulham spent £45 million the season they won the first division and in the close season before our first premiership season...stayed up by the skin of our teeth.
    I hope I'm wrong and I wish all 3 promoted teams the best of luck next season...(but not at Craven Cottage - yes, the whites are going home... :clap: )

    Judging by today's result, we do well against teams managed by Palace old boys so Chris Coleman had better watch out.

    It is ironic that when Wimbledon had to sell Reo-Coker a couple of months ago he chose West Ham over Palace. Hayden Mullins must have also felt that it would advance his career when he moved from Selhurst Park to West Ham late last year too

    :rotfl: Enjoy it mate - hope it goes well next season. With a bit of luck Forest might get it together enough to join you for the season after.
    P.S. I had a double bet this morning - Palace and Mansfield to win, so fingers crossed for Monday
