03/11/12 League Blackburn Rovers (h) 2-0 win

Without going over old ground and a week of rumour as to who will be the next manager, Ian Holloway is at Selhurst for this game to watch his new team take on Blackburn. From the low of losing DF to the high of gaining 'Olly' the Palace rollercoaster keeps on going. Quite a surprise but a very welcome one ... A new chapter at the club is about to commence, a small matter of a top six side at home first.

And what a game. Far too much to cover in a blog before I bore you all but the fact remains, the Palace bandwagon continues to steam through everything in it's path. The latest victims were Blackburn. A Premiership side last season and arrive at Selhurst with a 100% away record. Apart from a couple of crossbars, Rovers never came close enough to challenge. The first half was a master class but Palace almost went into half time without anything to show for it. Thankfully Glenn Murray converted a Garven cross just before the whistle and it was Murray again on 60 minutes after being fouled in the area he put away the penalty. He should have had a hat-trick after Palace were awarded a seocnd penalty but Robinson saved and the follow up.

Too many players to single out in the red and blue in this game, all on top form. I do fear for Holloway as we are bound to cop a loss sooner rather than later and in a lot of fans eyes that will be his fault. We all know what some of you out there are like. But keep the faith. The owners, players, staff and fans can see something very special growing at Selhurst Park right now. It's been a rollercoaster and will continue to be one. See you all on the other side.

View from TheEaglesBeak; This is a team. The future is red and blue, it's so bright I gotta wear shades!!
