    Maybe Deeney is being cleverer than we give him credit for.
    I don't approve of fouling but saying openly that is what we do leaves Zaha feeling attacked, under threat and paranoid. Without a single tackle going in he will have that at the back of his mind. Will also rile the other palace fans and players up to protect him, perhaps over react, and foul us unprovoked in the game. Either way we are altering and controlling the behaviour of an opponent. Sun Tzu would be proud.

    We don't even need to target him much now. The psychological damage is done. Deeney just needs to have a word early in the game and tell him to watch out and smile, that toothy crocodile grin

    I tried to find a minute by minute account of the game to see when Zaha was fouled and by whom. Not sure how comprehensive the account i found was but it stated that Zaha was only fouled twice. The bad one from Capoue and once more by Janmaat.. though it did say he was targeted by 3 players at the same time for the second foul.

    Perhaps Troy and some of our other slower players aren't quick enough to catch him? or maybe more training ground rotational fouling practise is needed.

    I doubt Caopue will care one bit or be affected by any abuse!

    Not sure anything really gets to him football wise as he isn't a fan of it.

    On their other forum they think Troy it just a hack merchant lucky to be playing football as he has been to jail and must be a thug.

    Then someone pointed out Ian Wright had been to jail which I didn't know...

    It's a shame for Palace and Watford fans that go in for this sort of thing that Millwall and Luton are so sh1t. We could put all this phoney rivalry stuff to one side and get on with hating the real enemy

    Troy is more MFI material.

    Old fashioned? With contact progressively being eradicated from the game you're arguably the cutting edge of modern thinking Stevo!

    So they say..
    Though i'm not so sure football is becoming any less physical. In fact i think it might be more physical than it's ever been. If you watch football from back in the 80's for instance you will see the players had a lot more time on the ball. These days they are closed down and challenged much quicker.

    What people mean of course is how many of those challenge are pulled up by the officials. But perhaps that's explained by the increased number of challenges in the modern game?

  14. "I think Deeney will play better with boos
    It has to be clever abuse designed to needle him, not inspire him."

    Looks like it's not going to happen then...:)

    But, seeing as it's Sarf London and practically a foreign country, maybe MI5?

    I really hope Troy doesn't come on here.

    Our brand of NASA level wit & critique might be too much.

    Actually, they're the home security mob.

    The person who pointed this out to me was, unnervingly, a Russian.

    It is cute that they care so much about us.

    I guess it is hard being a big fish in a small pond like we are.

    Jesus, I hope their forum is just an extreme snapshot of a few of their fans and not the average knowledge or true reflection of what they think. Half expecting something (coins or banana skins) to be thrown at Ettienne from the stands and they'll all proclaim he deserved it.

    And it wasnt even that bad a foul.
     
  22. Didn't Fellaini do a worse challenge on their Luka Milivojevic a few weeks later and not even get a yellow?

    Will he get as much grief or is it only because we're Watford?

    Does that mean the Arsenal fans gave clever needley abuse last year when they beat us 3 nil last year and Deeney missed a penalty after the infamous cojonesgate?

    It's funny that some on here are so anti Bournemouth when Crystal Palace fans are so much more unpalatable. A really unpleasant club.

    I just love it that those absolute mouth-breathers are conveniently forgetting when Patrick van Aanholt scythed down Pereyra with a foul worthy of a red at the away game last year and injured him, leading him to be subbed off. Of course, that doesn't fit the narrative down there; then again, the education system is ******* woeful south of the river apart from Dulwich, Tiffin and St Paul's (none of them being in the borough of Croydon).

    Well there’s a reason we call them Palarse and that’s the majority of their distilled fan base thinking they are the biggest club in London.

    No, erm Arsenal, Chelsea and Spuds to name s few. We aren’t even a London club hence why L**** are our rivals. Hertfordshire is a way from south London but mind you on a good day you can smell the egg and chips when the winds blowing north east.

    Still bitter we beat them, sorry, demolished them in 2006 and didn’t concede a goal through the playoffs and final.

    Yes they beat us a few years later but that means nothing now. Two different teams with both clubs somewhat overreaching in many eyes. We earned our right to be here, and I won’t have some snotty little South London club thinking they are above us in stature.

    Go back to your eggs and stuff some chips up your Arse.

    To the other Palarse fans, I feel sorry you live and follow you team alongside such immature tinpot fans.
