Tuesday, you are a real thorn in my side. I can't even enjoy the Iceland's victory over England for 24 hours. I have people at work telling me those who make the money get weasel out of our service level agreements. Those are fighting words folks!
Now comes the word that Crystal Palace is activating Andros Townsend's release clause. I've got nothing. Maybe the attachment to this player is too much. Maybe I am investing in a future that is unrealistic. Is Townsend seen as a foundational piece simply because those around him were so below average?
There were times when Andros would force the left foot. Doing so impacted opportunities. Am I letting fear and desperation win out?
Ok, let's kick the ball.
We're going to progress into the bad news.
At no point did I see a goalie as the first signing.
Everything. You'll read this article and no questions will remain.
And then sorrow sat in. Anyplace but Palace. Anyone but Pardew.
I'm not sure this makes me feel any better.
I hope you're sitting down for this.
There's talk of Sam Allardyce, Alan Pardew and Eddie Howe
Let's end on a good note.
But if Townsend does leave and is replaced with Ritchie, Newcastle fans should not be too upset - because the Bournemouth man knows the league well and is a proven performer. He is also incredibly consistent, and rarely succumbs to injury.
