We all love to hear Crystal Palace being showered with praise from across the country, making Paul Merson’s assessment of our victory over Southampton this weekend well worth a watch.
Having been selected as the Soccer Saturday pundit for yesterday’s clash at Selhurst Park, Merson was floored by the attacking intent and entertainment levels offered up throughout the game by the hosts, suggesting that we cruised to victory against a Saints team who many thought would be well above Palace this term.
Singling out the likes of Bolasie, Zaha and Hennessey for praise, the former Arsenal man appears to fully believe that we can and will continue to press on at the right end of the table for months to come; thanks to the pace and endeavour we possess throughout the squad.
Merson hasn’t been reluctant to praise Pardew’s Palace in recent weeks, but after having a front row seat for what was one of our performances of the season to date, it’s no great surprise to see him so keen to wax lyrical about the quality of our play from front to back.
We’re all loving every minute of the current form Pardew and co. are enjoying; why not revel in it all just a little bit longer by watching Merson rant excitedly about the heights we’re currently scaling each week?
It’s the most sense I’ve ever heard come out Paul’s mouth.
