Heard that laugh of Giggs?? He could replace the Laughing Man at Blackpool.
Chelsea at Liverpool. Not much chance with half the team missing, but you never know.
We’re at Palace, here’s the it’s A fix extract from KK 215:
35) SUNDAY APRIL 27Th PALACE AWAY KO 4.10PM
First season back in the Prem. since their relegation in 2005. They went into administration in 2010 but were taken over by a fans consortium led by Steve Parish.
It’s the 44th league meeting, and latest connections include Steve Coppell and Trevor Francis.
Some celeb fans : Neil Morissey, Bill Nighy, Kid Jensen, Eddie Izzard, Simon Bird, James Buckley, Roy Hudd, Ronnie Corbett, Tim and Rafe Spall, Jenny Agutter, Harry Enfield, Neil Ashton (journalist)
This season so far : They’re in 11th place with 43 points from 35 games and 8 wins 2 draws and 7 losses at home.
At the Etihad in December it was a narrow 1-0 City win, Dzeko (66) getting the all important goal in front of 47,107 with 2,199 Glaziers.
In the Capital. One Cup they went out 2-1 at Bristol City in the 2nd rd
In the FA Cup they won 2-0 at West Brom in the 3rd rd. But lost 2-1 at Wigan in the 4th.
Our form at Palace: Our last meeting was in the League Cup in the 3rd rd in 09/10 at Selhurst Park, a 2-0 City win, SWP opening (50) and Carlos (70) finishing it.
Last league meeting was in season 2004/05 in the Prem. with City winning 2-1 when Keegan was under pressure.
For City : WLDLLDDWDD
Comment : January transfers in included Hennessey, Puncheon, Dann, Ince, Ledley.
Outs were Kebe, Phillips, Banton, Parsons, Appiah, so plenty of business carried out. It seems to have paid off to as it’s inspired Pulis to drive them up the league to safety after being rooted to the bottom as relegation certs. They gave us a tough game at The Etihad and another tough one is expected here, as they’ve just beaten Chelsea and Villa. Vociferous crowd at Selhurst these days as the novelty of the Prem. hasn’t yet worn off, and they sing ‘Glad All Over’. But we must win.
Groundwise : We’ll be in half of the Arthur Wait stand as usual down the side of the pitch.
Selhurst Park : Capacity : 26,255
Tickets : £40/£26
WWTWTWShite? Averaged 6,446 in 84/85 and this season it’s 24,223.
Sat Nav : SE25 6PU. It’s the worst ground in the country to get to so it’s pot luck for the best route.
It’s KK contributor John Burfield’s 50th birthday!
