Injuries & defeat leave Hodgson 'exceptionally bitter'
Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson reflects on an "exceptionally bitter day" after his side were beaten at Luton Town by Jacob Brown's late winner as the Eagles lost Eberechi Eze and Cheick Doucoure to injury. #CPFC
Still convinced that a braver kit manufacturer would have made half red/half blue shorts - one red sock / one blue sock. #CPFC
“Maldini said ‘If I have to make a tackle, then I've already made a mistake’. Sometimes you have to make a last-minute tackle but if I can avoid being seen in a game, I’m doing my job. There’s positioning, communication." Marc Guéhi #CPFC #ENG @TimesSport@sportsbots.xyz
One point behind the leaders with a game in hand #CPFC
"Michael Olise has trained with us fully this week, so he's another one I'll have in the squad ready for selection." 💪
Roy Hodgson provides a squad update ahead of the weekend ℹ️
Doesn’t mean we’ll keep him for all that time but we’ll get to see his brilliance for a while longer and then a decent transfer fee.
🚨 EXCL: Eberechi Eze has signed a new 3.5yr contract at Crystal Palace. Previous deal was due to expire in 2025, fresh terms run until summer 2027.

No tolerance for racism in football.
Up early (for a Saturday), travelling down to London to watch Palace play Nottingham Forest.
This fixture has particular importance as we live in Nottingham.
Host @AliMaxwell_@twitter.com is joined by @Zonal_Marking@sportsbots.xyz, @MarkCarey93@twitter.com and @LiamTharmeCoach@twitter.com to assess the concept of 'Ewing Theory' - the idea that a team can lose their star player and actually improve.
🚨 Crystal Palace expected to open initial talks with Eberechi Eze over new contract. Existing deal 2025 & fresh terms would reward status as key player.

A truly unforgettable night seeing #CPFC #Palace for the first time. Surreal to see them in the flesh, young and old legends alike. Beautiful venue in #ComericaPark and my first time in #Detroit. Big recommend. I’ll never forget meeting other Palace supoorters for the first time, as well as the first Londoners. Loved every minute.
Echoes of the old Crystal Palace reflected in the glass of their new Selhust Park Stand. CPFC played in the old CP stadium until 1924 before moving down the road.
The new Main Stand has now been approved by Croydon Council will provide "a stadium the whole of south London can be proud of" It will increase capacity from 26,000 to more than 34,000.
Time for an #introduction post ...
Cis, he/him goddamn Brit and yes, Twitter refugee. Main interest is #TTRPG especially #TheOneRing, #LordOfTheRingsRoleplaying / #AdventuresInMiddleEarth, #OldSchoolEssentials, and most #osr and #NSR. But I’ve still got an 80s kid mentality so I will play absolutely anything. Enjoy #cycling and #CrystalPalace #CPFC fan since the 80s. Trying to get more mutuals over here hence the #Grogsquad tag. Lastly, and most importantly, always, always #FuckTheTories.
Time for an #intro!

An actual #cpfc roller-coaster
Crystal Palace 1908

A decent end to another season in the top flight. Highs and lows, further development from the youth, with bittersweet farewells to some of the old guard. As always, excited for the future. Looking forward to the transfer window, more academy lads, and a permanent manager.
I have to admit that I was both ageist and wrong for mocking Crystal Palace’s decision to bring 75 year old Roy Hodgson out of retirement. He’s been absolutely brilliant. Since taking over, they’ve gone 4-1-1. Amazing work by one of the all-time greats. #cpfc

#Football pundits who ridicule folks for caring about 5th-tier #Wrexham because of the TV show, like I just heard Jason what’s-his-name do on #SiriusXM, can go jump in a lake. I follow #CPFC because of the TV comedy Ted Lasso. Now I follow the entire #PremierLeague, and my favorite US team are 3rd-tier Richmond Kickers. How stupid does that make me, Jason? Shame on you!
I like Roy but after 10 years in the Premier League Palace are going backwards while other teams (cough cough) are going forwards. #CPFC
If we'd had the courage to hold off for a week the media spotlight would have moved on to Spurs. #CPFC
Honestly #Palace needs to find how to score some goals cuz they have incredible pieces, lots of youth too. They don’t ever play scared!
I’d love them to sell Wilf this window to get some profit from him since he’s leaving for free this summer. Maybe with a gaping Wilf-sized hole someone will step up goal-wise
#CPFC does play well against the top sides, and usually draws. But then they lose to their actual competition lol.
I am in the process of setting up this account but still mostly using Twitter (@Amused_Moosey).
So, I won't be spending much time here, but over the other place to see the collapse of a once mighty empire!
I'll try to check in from time to time to check notifications, etc.
One of the things I have noticed is that I’m following more men on here - and that’s not what I want or who I am!
So - UK-based women on here wanting to talk about #UKPolitics #UKLabour #comms #TradeUnions #Feminism #AmReading #AmRunning #Parenting #CPFC and general fix-the-world topics, please make yourself known!
