Palace Fans Not Happy

Crystal Palace
1 - 1
Coventry City

Selhurst Park

18/09/2007

Attendance: 14,445

Referee:

Don't get me wrong as I am no manager, but when your side is 1-0 up, and is slowly being pinned back, isn't it time to bring a sub on or two, I just cant under stand Peter Taylor and his tactics, he normally puts subs on when there is no need, but never bothered when we really needed an injection of fresh legs, and we had good subs on the bench too.

The first half was a good one for Palace, we created loads of scoring chances, on 21 Dougie Freedman blasted a shot just over five minutes later with good play from Freedman found Stewart Green to score his third of the season,from then on Palace created chance after chance but just couldn't hit the back of the net.

Ten mins into the second half you could see we needed that little bit more, why not make a sub or two Peter?, City's defence looked very weak, and with players like Dickov and Idrizaj on the bench, we would of had the fire power to rip Coventry to bits, and whats wrong with Martin?, why never use him?, and then there is what happened to Morrison?, he finished training the day before and wasn't injured, but wasn't in the 16 man squad.

Well as you can imagine, City pressed and pressed and on the 87 min Leon Best fired in the equalizer, then it was to late for Palace to do anything, I'm just glad the game ended, as anymore time I think Coventry might have got a second...

Scowcroft 7 - work very hard for the team.
