View from the opposition – Crystal Palace
A bit about you
Name: Dale Bowman
Current home town: Colchester
How long have you supported your team? Since day one
Overview of your club:
Favourite thing about your home ground: The noise, we certainly put on an atmosphere!
Favourite match played by your team & why: There has been many in recent years such as the playoff final of the 12/13 season and the FA Cup run to the final last season and beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last season for the first time in the league since 1982. The best game I witnessed has to be the game we nickname Crystanbul in the 13/14 season against Liverpool, we were 3-0 down and brought the game back to a 3-3 draw and ruined any hope of them getting there name scribed on the Premier League trophy that season.
Favourite player of all time who played for your club: Andrew Johnson
About our forthcoming match against you:
Your favourite current player in your squad and why?
Wilfried Zaha, tricky player and exciting to watch, he's just too good for you!
Player in your squad we should most fear and why?
Again, Wilfried Zaha, he is strong and skillful, and he often gets fouled a lot so maybe that’s a proven point to why he should be feared.
Player in our squad you most fear and why?
Jamie Vardy, when he is firing on all cylinders!
Up and coming prospect in your squad?
Aaron Wan Bissaka, he came through our academy and he hasn't been in our first team long and he has made an instant impact to our defence!
How do you think you'll do against us?
Well, if its anything like the away game at the Kingpower, we should be in for a treat! I’m going for a closer game, 3-1 Palace!!
Where do you now think you'll finish this season?
I like to think somewhere like 13th-14th which would be a good finish considering the 7 game headstart we gave everyone!
Which 3 teams do you think will go down?
Westbrom, Stoke and I would like to say Brighton, but I think it will be Huddersfield.
Describe your season in less than 15 words?
Slow start, better middle, unlucky in quite a few games.
At the start of the season did you think Man City would win the league and if not who did you think would? I had a feeling they probably would, either them or Tottenham
If you could change 3 things at your club what would they be?
Better Striker (Benteke has been beyond poor this season!) I would love us to have a bigger stadium (which has been granted as in the next couple of seasons we will see a new stand and our capacity increased from 25,000 to 34,000!), and possibly a slightly better defence, conceded too many late goals this year!
Any other comments?
COME ON YOU PALACE!!!
