    Selhurst Park,Roy Hodgson & Zaha next up.



    Reality is we play as a team,always have under MB and literally we defend as a whole team unit & attack as a whole unit - every player moves with or without the ball like a smooth machine but now and again that doesn't happen.
    Mistakes get punished as do chances spurned and Leicester last night was one of those to digest and learn from as a whole unit and in identified individual performances perspectives too.
    Could costly 'individual errors' have been avoided ?
    Strikers should alway score & defenders should alway defend some would argue.
    Mmmm.

    So away to SE London and the narrow pitch of Selhurst Park we go.Have been chatting to a few 'Sydenham SE26 Palace fans' I know well and they've stated that Hodgson only plays the 4-4-2 formation which he sets up to play in a unique separate attack and defensive strategy block system.
    When the opposition is attacking Palace sit deep in a 'low blanket block' so it'll be hard to break 'em down.But they've a decent counter attack threat and when attacking Palace are fluid with FOUR balanced attacking players,all have great pace thus they don't need their own defenders for any build up support play.So Townsend, Zaha, Schlupp and Eze can damage teams quickly if opportunity arises from the halfway line.
    Midfield will be the key to open 'em up is the gist of how they succumb then.

    Obviously Zaha drifts all over the place and is hard to pick up,also a great scoring record so far this season too and he 'ain't easy to tackle either when he's got the ball at his feet.Can remember back in 2013 season at Selhurst Park when Zaha had given us the runaround and had started gesturing and swearing at us Leeds fans in the corner 'cos we gave him 90 minutes of abuse for his impending transfer to Man U and finally he snapped by giving us the middle finger which was all over that weekends photo Press,so he'll sure be up for it on their historically bad playing surface.

    MOT

    Other teams MRS O would have seen how they beat us and use it against us. MB bringing Roberts on just when we looked like getting back into the game with Hernandez poster was a disaster waiting to happen and it did.
