Today’s round-up predictably features news regarding the club’s planned redevelopment of Selhurst Park, with fans having been invited to take a virtual tour of the stadium following the proposed building work. I have to say, it’s rather an impressive representation of the new improved ground, giving you a perspective from outside, pitch level, Main Stand and Arthur Waite.
Elsewhere, Eagles chairman Steve Parish is doing his level best to stop Sam Allardyce from pinching our highly-rated goalkeeping coach and a Labour Councillor for Selhurst has filled supporters in on the potential snags Palace may hit with the plans for the Main Stand. Far from it being a hatchet job, Timothy Godfrey actually raises all manner of interesting points, leaving me hoping that those behind the scenes in SE25 are prepared for every eventuality.
Finally, there is a priceless reaction from Glenn Hoddle and Jermaine Jenas to the sight of Brighton and Palace being drawn together in the FA Cup Third Round. Anyone who still believes those in football are blissfully unaware of the hatred between the two clubs needs only watch the video attached, both of them knew exactly what they’d done.
Thanks to the announcement of Crystal Palace’s proposed £100m redevelopment of Selhurst Park, the last 24 hours have been full of excitement for Eagles fans, with this link allowing you to take a virtual tour of Selhurst once the planned changes have taken place.
Steve Parish has taken the opportunity to wish Sam Allardyce well in his new role with Everton but has warned him against trying to take goalkeeping coach Martyn Margetson away from Selhurst Park in the immediate future.
Whilst it’s easy to get carried away by the hugely exciting plans for Selhurst Park’s redevelopment, supporters of Crystal Palace are no doubt well aware of the numerous hurdles that lie in our way before construction gets anywhere close to beginning.
Just days on from Crystal Palace’s recent controversial trip to face Brighton at The Amex Stadium, they’re heading back once again, in the FA Cup Third Round following on from last night’s draw.
