Have your say

After two great performances against West Ham and Reading, we shoot ourselves in the foot with a two shocking performances against Derby and Milwall.

You could not believe it was the same team. To me there seems a rift in the team, and you can totally understand how fans are begining to get restless.

Derby were gifted an opening goal when Carl Ikeme came out for a ball that was never his, subsequently flapped at the ball and was lobbed.

Then Gareth Roberts, one of our returning heroes, fired home after playing a neat 1-2. Not all fans were happy with the way he celebrated, but when it’s two years since your last goal, what else do you expect the player to do.

Diouf pulled a goal back to give us the slightest of chances, but to no avail.

Dean rang the changes for the visit of Millwall, but even the old guard found it difficult to change anything positively.

I must say the lack of passion and desire to win hurt me, and by 63 minutes I was wishing the game was over. It took until the 79th minute for us to get our first shot on target.

The question being asked as to weather Sean would have amassed as many points, if he had not been given the elbow. Games are running out and the visit to league leaders Southampton will be no easy game, but you go and watch us we will put in a great team performance and win - stranger things have happened.

But to come face to face with the likes of Lambert and Sharpy (it will be interesting to see if he gets a start, and what reception he will get from out fans, as he must be kicking his heels stuck on the bench.

It’s the Supporters Club annual weekend away for this game, and more than 100 fans will be staying in Bournemouth. We normally have a bit of a knees up, and a full blown karaoke.

Tuesday sees the rearranged fixture at the Palace, only the die hard will make this trip, but let’s get behind the team and let’s see how they respond.

I’m off on the train, but it’s going to be squeaky bum time, getting back to Kings Cross for the 11.30pm train.Anything short of four points from these two games will sadly, I think, be the final nail in the coffin. Palace scored late on against Barnsley on Tuesday.

Sorry to see Dave Morris the Chief Executive, depart the club, he has been a loyal servant and hopefuly will come back and support the team in some way...thanks Dave for your support.

The pitch at the Keepmoat is coming in for critiscm, hopefully the club will take a look at getting a new surface down at the end of the season.
