All set for Monday

Brighton were held 0-0 at Selhurst last night but did enough to have won it. 
Julian Speroni made two trade-mark point blank saves from headers that I'll wager he won't manage on Monday at the Amex.

Palace improved after half-time but they still look a shadow of their early season form and short of confidence. Moxey had a mare at left-back and Gabbidon appears simply to launch every ball into touch irrespective of pressure and other options. Palace also lost Glenn Murray and Jonathon Williams to injury. Zaha sounded like he'd given up on Palace's chances when interviewed at the final whistle and Brighton must be confident of repeating their 3-0 league victory of March.

On the basis of who might afford us more points next season alone, we should be glad to see Brighton win through and get promoted at Wembley. Palace will need to spend some of their Zaha money if their slide is not to continue and league regulations should prevent Watford from fielding Udinese's team next season. 

Breathe easy everyone.

The Palace captain (Jovilik?)put his elbows about a bit. Seems the type that when things ain't going his way, can get upset.
What with their leading goalscorer looking set to miss the second leg and home advantage, my take on this is a Brighton win. Possibly ending with Palace down to ten men.
Fingers crossed.

The knee jerk appointment of that fruit cake Holloway is reminiscent of us appointing that twat Dowie. Come on you Seagulls!
