Charlton vs. Crystal Palace

The Valley

Wannabe's V Palace

Rivals, lol dont make me laugh, we only have one rival and they're on the south coast, the seaweed.

Now thats over this should be a tough encounter, not a lot in it except Charlton have home advantage...

Vital Quotes:

Your not our RIVALS, Brighton are!
................SGE

Neil Warnock

'A couple of managers have labelled us with the 'long ball' tag recently and I think it is just petty jealousy. To me it seems like a ploy to divert attention from their own clubs.

'What I'm aiming to do is strike a happy medium and I don't think the fans would want to swap where we are in the table for a change of style at the minute. We are not given enough credit for the football we do play.

'When you've got players like Ben Watson, Shaun Derry, Tom Soares and Sean Scannell in you side then you are always going to play your fair share of attractive football.

'And what I would say to those managers who comment on us is: 'Get your own house in order'.

'I'm looking forward to my first south-London derby against Charlton tonight. I've had some great battles at The Valley with Sheffield United and I expect tonight to be the same.

'I know the game against Charlton will be firey - but I want all Palace fans to behave and stay safe.

'The club is on a high at the moment and we do not want anything to ruin that.'

Alan Pardew

'My record against Neil's teams is reasonably good, but you have to earn the right to play, otherwise his teams will dominate you, and we can't let that happen.

'I've come up against Neil on many occasions. It's never an easy game, his teams are always tough and always committed."

One we should of got but didnt, given space he will give us big trouble hope we dont go 4,3,3

apparently all you did was lump it forward and tried to play the percentage game...Charlton passed you off the pitch....the only player who was gonna cause you problems was Ifill and warnock made a tactical blunder at half time and took him off! You got what you deserved......!

"I've come up against Neil on many occasions." - Alan that just doesn't sound right - I'm kinda jealous now....
