So after back to back wins we face a Watford side battling for their lives and fresh from giving Liverpool a doing.  Can we make it 3 in a row or will the Selhurst curse strike again?

If we only win 2 more games this season...I want them to be those c*nts and The wankers. Oh and maybe Liverpool. And Bournemouth Spurs. O feck it!!
No the first 2 and draw the rest.

I hate these pricks with a passion.  I think the team do as well.   Sending them back into the relegation places would be an absolute pleasure.

Fucking hate Watford and Deeney; the Harvey price looking thug.

The bbc and media have some kind of love in going on with him when in reality he’s a fucking shit footballer stealing a living by going around kicking fuck out of the opposition and getting away with it and occasionally smashing a penalty into the net. He also went to prison for rattling a volley through someone’s head whilst they were on the floor when he was pissed up, with absolutely no provocation at all. Everyone forgets this fact.

No doubt he’ll score. Fuck him.

As long as Watford and Brighton go with Bournemouth I'll be happy.  Not sure how statistically possible it is though.  Norwich have to go on a hell of a run.  I'll take 2 from 3 plus Norwich if not.  Hope Wilf batters Watford on Saturday.

I always had a mild irrational distaste for Watford - mainly because they have a moose on their badge (yes I know it's supposed to be a stag for Hertfordshire but it still looks like a moose) and yet they persist in calling themselves the Hornets. Jeez - just make your mind up what emblem you want, hey?

Over the years this dislike has morphed into an active hate, mainly because of the way their spiv owners have bent the rules on player transfers to almost breaking point time and time again - but yet they still get away with it: the fact that they happily admit to operating a snidey system of rotational fouling on Zaha - but yet they still get away with it: and the thug Deeney who is perpetually in the ref's face either demanding a card for the opposition or feigning innocence after yet another assault - and yet he still gets away with it.

And ever since that lovely play-off final, they seem to have been a bit of a bogey team for us, both at home and away.

So I'd love it if we stuffed them on Saturday, but I fear that they will end up sneaking the win, and we will end up with a slew of cards against us and yet more players crocked due to bad tackles which go unpunished.

This link sums up Watfords badge I think.  Confused Smile

Pearson has done a good job there but they aren't safe yet.  Hopefully we can make it 3 wins in a row, unheard of for Palace.  Anyone fancy a pint on Saturday?

We always play them at the wrong time: they’re coming off the back of a big win with the new manager bounce still going. I cannot see anything other than a defeat tomorrow, which kills me to say as I fucking hate them.

Might be around for a beer pre-game Saturday, but won't know for sure until mid morning (I always have family commitments on Saturday mornings, which makes timings a bit of a nightmare)...

Where will you be drinking, and at what time?

Just in case Elgin is mid flight.  He said the Railway club (I'm shocked!) to me.  Which I believe is near Selhurst Station.

Does the victory club suit you?  We could meet the Groover in there too.  I've never been in there but walked past it hundreds of times.  At least you and I will recognise each other Smile

I will be with my daughter and 10yo grandson plus my mates.

OK by me.

If I can make it, I'll post up on this thread later. Won't know for sure until about 11.30, I'm afraid.

What's the deal with the Victory Club - do I have to get signed in by a member, or do they do day memberships on the door?

£2 entry, unless you have a CIU card, Groover says.  I'm going to try my Scotrail card and my best blagging face Smile  See you later hopefully.

Haha that shirt is cursed Smile That's my belief anyway.  I wear the away one these days.  I can't help but feel that the victory club is the most ironic name for a Palace drinking place ever.  But let's give it a go!

We will be upstairs.  It has a bar as well.  Specialist drinks like guiness downstairs.   They usually have a real ale area just inside the bar on the right.  They also do rolls at £1.80.
