Freezing But Full of Hope

Crystal Palace vs Cardiff City, 4th March 2008

On a rare trip down South I was lucky enough to take the opportunity to get to Selhurst last night. Well, lucky if you don’t mention that it was absolutely freezing cold in SE25 last night, and probably more so if (like me) you were in the upper tier of the Holmesdale.

Scowie’s Sky+ Special

We all know the frustrations of ITV’s coverage of the Championship. The changing times, the condensed shows when there is a clash with a Grand Prix, and the fear that they might forget about the Championship completely if they’ve got Champions League game to promote.

(By the way, am I the only person who can’t be bothered with the Champions League? Too much hype, too much bias, same old games and outcomes… yawn.)

Anyway, to be safe each week I’ve set my Sky+ to series link The Championship, and this week I got a treat. With Palace already two up thanks to Clinton Morrison and Sean Scannell we got a spectacular third from James Scowcroft, who hit a wonderful volley to wrap up the points. Moments like this make having Sky+ completely worthwhile.

Scannell’s Late Show Sinks Wednesday

I’m pleased to type familiar sentences with different figures. Another win, another game in the unbeaten streak! Our 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday saw us come from 1-0 down. Our equaliser was scored by Clinton Morrison before 17 year-old Sean Scannell scored his first goal for the club a minute from time for the win.

You can tell what the result meant to Warnock from the quote, “It’s always special against Wednesday, you can tell the feeling is mutual between me and the fans and I hope they think about me on their five-hour trip home.”

Great to see some optimism around the BBS as well.
