    I've seen Deulofeu dive before to be fair. Richarlison is terrible for it too, although I think many of our fans acknowledged this last season. Zaha is similar to Richarlison, always looking for a foul, which is basically cheating.

    I suspect we shouldn't mention Fessi or Success at this point ………….. ;)

    I think the difference is we acknowledge both of them have a habit of diving
     
  5. It goes back a lot further than that - this video was from three years earlier and shows how 'heated' things were. Former Aberdeen player Neale Cooper's memoirs were an eye opener - he quite clearly indicated that Alex Ferguson's policy for his Aberdeen team in the late 70s/early 80s was one of 'take no prisoners' - especially against Celtic/Rangers.

    Call me old-fashioned but that’s a dive in my book.

  7. I have always had the greatest faith in your assessment of a player.
     
  8. He won't give your first three for Zaha simulation. Mark my words. Zaha will be the first player to have a penalty decision overturned in a shoot out.

    This thread isn't funny because it's literally one bloke talking to himself on multiple accounts whilst pretending to wind himself up. -Corrected for you.

    Call yourself an estate agent? Where's your 'Comprised of a wealth of bijou...…...' ?

    I suspect both camps are nervous about this: Pretty much everybody thinks it will be close.
    A lot of talk, of course, about Zaha, Palace's danger-man. For my money there's a second one - Luka Milivojevi*. He's got a terrific long-shot and he's v v good at penalties. Wan bissaka also good and Andros Townsend sometimes.
    Watford should be narrow favourites, but this is a one-off cup match.

    Funny in the sense that i'm actually reading it and feeling like i'm in some weird form of matrix. Thread should be re-named 'The Truman Show 2'

    He's not allowed to play with sharp objects,apart from his crayons.

    Incorrect use of 'literally'.

    Shameful.

    But I believe they do.

    They are thought free, cud chomping media cows, beholden to Gary.

    Hence their anodyne views & hopeless, ‘take me to the Algarve, beat me at golf’ puppy dog eyes.

    Mixed animal metaphor.

    Please don’t.

    The dry cleaning has only just come back.

    Exactly.

    A conscious decision is a dive.

    A crayon inserted into any orifice will not help.

    Cant say ive ever understood what people get out of "trolling" like this. Well perhaps proper trolling i do or having joke accounts like Goatswilly or Moor Park. But posing as an opposition fan and then indulging in intelligent conversation as he/she has in the most part? One step away from crossdressing if you ask me.

    So who could it be other than the stock answer Moog? "palace01" is the o1 a subtle hint to another member who's username ends in a 1? I see they also stated their birthday.. but it didn't match anyone else i found.
    Whoever it is seems to have a pretty good knowledge of the affairs of CPFC.. which again is a bit weird.

    Same as High Grade?

    Same as me until we signed him. Now he's an integral part of our tactics; give it to Zaha, win a penalty, let the Serbian bloke take it. Rinse & repeat.

    I feel a bit daft as I assumed that he was a younger Palace fan snapping away at some fishing posts and was trying to straighten him out.

    This is the second time I've had the Highgrade nod in my direction. The first when my admittedly pretty rubbish attempt to insert estate agent gags into a post were misinterpreted as an invitation for a good old fashioned tear up on the mean streets of Watford town centre.

    I've since used the search facility and it is with deep regret that I must refute the accusation that I am Highgrade. My dear old grandad told me to say that, or something.

    I reckon you'll go two up, then two down. The atmosphere will be flat.

    (I'm not actually an estate agent.)
     
  33. Defending Zaha I can understand, but denying you are an estate agent is just going too far. Say it again and you are going on ignore.

    Are you trying to argue I’m a Watford fan??

    I’m so confused

    Very true, it’s a massive game for obvious reasons. Both camps will be nervous but quietly confident I would imagine. Nothing much between the sides in the two meetings this season. There won’t be much in it, wouldn’t be surprised if it when to ET
