Crystal Palace and fans need to come to agreement over Selhurst displays

Crystal Palace fans had more in the tank than this display vs. Arsenal, but they weren't allowed to unveil the rest.

Sure, modern football affords fans more chances to see their clubs play on TV than there are opportunities to see immediate family, but it's not all sunshine and lollipops. There's also the weird kickoff times. Monday night in Sunderland missing the last train back? Well, that makes no sense at all.

Chuck into that mix the massive hike in ticket prices and those awful half-and-half scarves and there are more than a few compromises the modern Premier League fan has to put up with for top-flight...

Bakary Sako's winner proves Crystal Palace's improved depth this season

Alan Pardew's Crystal Palace got the better of Tim Sherwood's Aston Villa in a tight 2-1 contest.
Crystal Palace midfielder Bakary Sako has made quite the impression on his manager, Alan Pardew with his late winning goal in their match against Aston Villa.
Despite a 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace, Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood was pleased overall with his team's performance.

Bakary Sako probably couldn't have asked for a better debut for Crystal Palace; not many have scored winners for the Eagles on their first game but the big man netted a brilliant goal to secure victory against Aston Villa.

It was by far a vintage performance, though, from Palace or Sako but with games against Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City coming up, it was imperative that the Eagles got a win over Tim Sherwood's men and they did thanks to the former Wolves winger's late curled effort.

Crystal Palace's character shines through in victory vs. Aston Villa

LONDON -- Three thoughts on Crystal Palace's 2-1 win vs. Aston Villa in the Premier League.

1. Palace character shines though

Crystal Palace's metamorphosis from hapless, cash-strapped chancers to Premier League stalwarts continues apace, as a fine strike from Bakary Sako secured a hard-fought three points at Selhurst Park over a stubborn Aston Villa side.

Manager Alan Pardew has assembled a fine squad in South London, a balanced combination of strength, pace and technical ability, but it's their...

Crystal Palace players deserving of more international call-ups

Pardew speaks about Bolasie speculation after his player was linked with a move to Spurs.

For years, Palace have been a team that have gone under the radar. A side that no one really took any notice of regardless of how well or how badly they did. Even in their first two seasons back in the Premier League, the Eagles rarely got much attention except for 30 seconds at the end of Match of the Day. But things are changing; this is a new Crystal Palace FC. One that is catching the eye, on and off the pitch. And it's about time.

Which is why it's a bit weird that more Palace players aren't...

Crystal Palace gave Arsenal a fight but created few clear-cut chances

ESPN FC's Craig Burley discusses the major talking points of Arsenal's crucial victory over Crystal Palace, and how Arsenal executed their game plan to perfection.

In life, sometimes you're up and sometimes you're down. In football, though, sometimes you're big and sometimes you're not, and that can often determine whether you win a game or not. Palace found that out against Arsenal on Sunday thanks to some questionable refereeing decisions.

The Gunners ran out 2-1 winners and probably deserved to win over the balance of the match; they dominated the early exchanges and created more chances but every fan knows points aren't won over possession percentages...

1. Arsenal take the points, but doubts are raised

Arsenal were better this time around but victory at Crystal Palace was another occasion that suggested they have begun the season slower than Arsene Wenger would like.

The forward line ticked over, with Olivier Giroud on the score sheet and Alexis Sanchez's header diverted into his own net by Damien Delaney. This was an attacking effort massively superior to...
