I'd like to see

Pickford

Coleman   Keane    Mangala   Cuco

Gana   Rooney

Walcott          Davies             Sig

DCL

I like that a lot. It's the right shape, with a good mix of experienced and developing players.

Only worry might be that we need an "organizer" in the middle of the defense but Keane and Holgate need minutes, especially over the likes of Williams, who isn't good and definitely isn't getting better.

I'm going to be mean (even though I'm sure plenty won't see it that way given his unpopularity) and say that Williams doesn't deserve another minute on the pitch unless injuries and/or suspensions deplete our centre back options. We gain nothing from playing him at this point, especially given how poor his form has been.

Jags, Mangala, Holgate, and Keane are enough. Especially with the latter two likely to improve with game time.

Crystal palace have never won a game when zaha is out injured...

Everton: “Hold my beer.”

No complaints about that. The team shape and balance within the midfield are right.

What's the point of Mangala if he isn't winning those battles?

Edit: Possibly harsh, maybe it was a foul.

God bless our one lineup that can actually play.

It's nice to enjoy watching us.

I'm not trying to pick on Niasse because I think he's useful and worth having around but...

...he shouldn't be starting matches.

So, @kramer0 is enjoying watching us, and you think it's dire 🤔



It could very well be a case of lowered expectations on my end, to be fair.

Things I never thought I'd see:

Gana hitting the target on a shot outside the box.

It's okay, we've got... Ashley... Williams. (sighs)

Seriously, though. How does Williams make the bench over Jagielka and Holgate?

Those two have been much better defenders this season.
