Even though we have the better players now we still have the lions share of the possession (59%) as well as being more direct.

For all that possession, we could only muster 2 goals and that was credit to the Crystal Palace defence who defended brilliantly, but eventually ran out of steam. I wonder how long they can hang onto their goal keeper, who was top class in their goal as was Shay Given at the other end. Tevez shone for the outfielders and topped the display with a headed goal.

Buzz - I said during the game last night that I consider Speroni as top class and that it was beyond me why he is not playing at a higher level. Although he deserves to be a No. 1 choice wherever he is, I'd be more confident if he was our no. 2 keeper rather than Taylor!
