Claude is developing a sense of humour methinks :-

Midfielder Dušan Tadić remains sidelined after breaking his nose on international duty with Serbia, while Matt Targett is also unavailable for selection.

Puel said: “For this moment Tadić is not available for this game. I don’t when he will come back with the squad to play.

“With the training sessions he could come back today or tomorrow but he has stayed three weeks without training session or games.

“It’s important he can do good work now to come back fit and we will see with him and the staff.

“We want him to come back at a good physical level to play a strong game with us.

“He will wear a mask, but it’s a beautiful mask!”


I’m feeling pessimistic about this game they’ve been in a dreadful run of form recently and teams always seem to bounce back against us!

3-1 to Palarse I think

I’m afflicted by excess of confidence at moment, I was looking through our league fixtures earlier, and the first one that made me think, hmm, not sure we’ll get anything out of that, was Spurs away in like, mid fkn March.


Also, looking forward to those pre-match strippers they have, it’s gonna be crystal nips in this weather srs


I don’t know about the result, but a crap team, managed by Pardew, looking for any kind of a result on a chewed-up pitch in front of baying home fans in the middle of winter screams injuries to me. Seeing Virgil on the deck even for 10 seconds against Arsenal has set my paranoia abuzz.

Has Pardew been sacked yet ? BBC was saying it could be on the cards

Think he had a meeting with Parrish after their latest defeat, but he hasn’t gone yet as far as I know. Lose on Saturday and he could well be on his way though.

Fuck sake does no-one like my beautiful mask enough to up-vote it!!

Voted down due to the begging


You have one now, but purely out of pity.


Tadic was back in training today


This is the sort of game we need to press home our superiority and win 8-0.

I’m predicting 9-0


Win against Palace, then best Beer Shaver and what a fantastic couple of weeks it would have been!

Just saying this as I said, if we beat Everton and get into the semi finals of the league cup then everything would be great again!

I can’t see Pardew surviving another defeat - he’ll be well chuffed if he gets sacked by Saints for a second time.


Well Mark Lawrenson has predicted a 2-0 win for Palace, so given his abysmal record when it comes to predicting our results we can safely assume the Saints will romp home on Saturday.

Have just gone right of Tim Vine predicting a 3-1 win to Palarse

Stat’ that say Saints will not win

  • Alan Pardew has lost his last six Premier League matches; he’s never lost seven in a row before as a manager in the top-flight (also six with Newcastle in April 2014).

There is a first time for everything :lou_lol:
