Considering the weather warnings that have been in place, that's disgracefully late for ours and Man City's games to be called off. I'm not blaming the clubs, I'm sure it'll be a police issue but it's pretty poor who ever made the decision this late.

harsh but fair!

Feel more sorry for Shogs.

He worked like a bastard getting this matchday thread going and had to research a side managed by Pulis, now the poor bugger has to do it again later in the season  shakeyheadman

Great result for us though in a footballing sense.
Swansea slog it out all night at Stoke.
We play them Saturday.
When the game gets played again we should have everyone back.
Sorry for anyone that travelled thats all but shit happens.

Could be a blessing in disguise.  Gives us a bit longer to get the walking wounded fit.

So was Traore last fixture.  I imagine we will rest Barkley if at all possible.



I think Traore was on the bench to experience the atmosphere of the Prem? But that's only what I thought at the time, that maybe Martinez had in mind? It's something imo he would do. Imagine Moyes doing that.

Manchester City P-P Sunderland
BBC Sport's Alistair Magowan at Etihad Stadium: "I've just spoken to Manchester City's director of communications Vicky Kloss and she says that the game was called off by the police for safety reasons. Although the game could have gone ahead from a playing perspective, programme booths have been blowing over and a nearby wall has blown down so safety of fans cannot be guaranteed.

"There is no word on when the game will be re-arranged for, but having just travelled across Manchester, it seems like a good decision to postpone the game."


Probably a similar situation to ours then. As you say it was harsh for it was left so late though. Seeing as we got as far as announcing the line up we seemingly were happy for it to go ahead.

Once the Man City games was called off though, I think it may have caused a ripple effect on the decision making process for us as if someone had got injured it would have looked like negligence to let the game go ahead.

Gutted the games off but the safety of the fans comes first. Having seen the pictures at the Etihad and being out in it to put the bin out, I knew ours would go down too

Yeah it's not like this wind hasn't been part of the forecast for tonight since this morning at least.  Appreciate it's a big decision to take, but it's very late in the day when they could have made it much earlier.

They might have left it late but as soon as slabs from houses start coming off there's only one way to go.

Yeah, when you consider the distance the away fans in both Palace and Sunderland's case had travelled. You'd think they could have got a fairly accurate weather situation about 3pm? It's the right decision from a safety point of view but ironically the message is not to travel in the area, yet there are 30-40k fans all out in this weather because the decision wasn't made earlier.

Poor Palace fans (and that's hard to say, coming from Brighton!)

As has been said, more rest, more time to get injured warriors back, nothing but good to come from this.
