Hi all, we are finally here – over two months late – but here nevertheless… the count down begins to Sunday and the final League placings; we should see European places finalised and teams relegated. All for one’s enjoyment… unless you support a team that is staring relegation in the face or a possible European failing.
In my blog/ article, I give my predictions, team news and all the excitement that goes with it… what I didn’t mention, and I shall do so here, is that next season will start on the 12th September… one month later than usual. So, there you have it all in the format of the written word. Enjoy your weekend and the build-up to Palace v Spurs match. Best Regards, Glenn. Thank you!
Extracts from my blog
Well, we are finally here… over two months late… but here, nevertheless.
For those that are waiting for that big day to arrive… let me just picture it; the day rushes fast by until you are sat in front of your computer/ TV screen or radio listening to a commentators words rattling around an eerie stadium as you clutch your beer/ wine/ partner or pet. Sitting alone, together or in the company of other people in your rubber walled safe place. Whatever… once there you will be enthralled as your transfixed eyes watch every movement, waiting, anticipating that goal that would put us one-nil up, then two, three, four… As this is all happening our eyes flicker to our smartphones looking at the other results coming in… hoping that you will see that Chelsea has gone one or two up against the Wolves… There you go… if I am proven right call me whatever you like, just not too late for that point you want to buy me.
So, let us start off with the Team News
First up: Palace
Crystal Palace captain Luka Milivojevic might be fit to return from a knee injury that ruled him out at Wolves. Mamadou Sakho is definitely out, along with James Tomkins, Patrick van Aanholt, Gary Cahill and the suspended Christian Benteke.
Now we move on to: Spurs
Alli is available, having returned to training this week following a four-game absence with a hamstring issue. Tanguy Ndombele is again ruled out because of injury.
Now to my thoughts on the match and predictions.
As you all know, Mourinho’s arrival in November hasn’t yet had the anticipated effect. But did we really expect miracles so quick and fast? I didn’t. We will finish outside the top four for the first time in five seasons (and in those five seasons no trophies, just two finals).So our only viable target on the last day is a place in the Europa League.
