Today’s round-up predictably focuses fully on Crystal Palace’s late come-from-behind victory over Watford at Selhurst Park last night; a result which lifted Roy Hodgson’s men out of the bottom three for the first time all season.
After 88 minutes of what can only be described as dirge, Wilfried Zaha flicked a switch and took us from a deficit to a stoppage time lead in the space of just three breathless minutes.
Below, you can watch both Bakary Sako and James McArthur’s as often as you like from seven different angles, sample the atmosphere just after the final whistle sounded and watch the scenes as the Holmesdale erupted at the sight of Jimmy’s glorious winner.
Beyond that, I have penned my heartfelt and truly sheepish apology for having the audacity to doubt him when the appointment was made in mid-September and there is a look at how Watford fans reacted to their late defeat on social media. I’ll give you a clue; they didn’t take the loss particularly well.
After 88 minutes of yesterday’s game against Watford, Palace fans were collectively staring down the barrel of a gun but thanks to the drive of Wilfried Zaha, the mood turned to almost unparalleled jubilation just four minutes later.
Despite a rather dire performance from Palace for the majority of last night’s game against Watford, almost everyone stayed for the closing stages of the clash and were rewarded with two goals which saw us turn a defeat into a victory in ridiculous circumstances.
Anyone who had the pleasure of being inside Selhurst Park as Crystal Palace secured a dramatic late win over Watford will know that there were scenes of absolute bedlam across the ground. Luckily, the club’s official site caught it all on camera.
Seven games into the 2017/18 Premier League season, Crystal Palace were rooted to the very bottom of the table with no points and more crucially no goals to their name. In the 10 games that have followed, we’ve gained a mammoth 14 points, gone six games unbeaten and scored two or more goals in six straight home games, thanks mainly to the 70-year-old puppet-master Roy Hodgson.
Having watched the away end spend the entirety of yesterday’s game between Crystal Palace and Watford serenading Wilfried Zaha with abuse, I’m sure you’ll forgive me for taking a few moments to bask in the reflective glow of Hornets fans’ misery on this fine Wednesday afternoon.
