Following Crystal Palace’s stunning start to the 2015/16 Premier League campaign, The Evening Standard asked us to write a piece to summarise the first few weeks of the season from a fan’s perspective, which is attached in full below.
Whilst most Palace supporters and indeed regular readers of this site are well aware of the fantastic run of form we’ve been on since August, the ever-growing readership of HLTCO is the reason for publications such as The Evening Standard getting in contact with us to ask for our opinion and for that, we can only say thank you.
It’s still quite overwhelming to think that a blog which was originally started as a mere platform to ramble about the football club from time to time has grown so rapidly over the years, but, as clichéd as it sounds, the website would be nothing without the thousands of people who log on to read it every day. Having recently been shortlisted for the National Football Blogging Awards Best Club Blog for the second consecutive year, it’s fair to say that HLTCO is on the up, much the same as the team are under the guidance of Alan Pardew.
Hopefully, both the football club and this site will continue to expand and improve for many years to come, but for now, we would just like to extend our sincerest thanks to each and every person who regularly reads the site. Although it’s bordering on impossible to thank every one of you individually, rest assured, your continued interest in what we have to say about the club is hugely appreciated.
