At the Palace - and so were Davids and Pablo!
Saturday 21st August 2010 - Crystal Palace 1 Ipswich Town 2 - Championship
A new route to Selhurst Park as we took the overground train from Shoreditch High Street. Palace - Ipswich games are always exciting, sending offs, late goals, comebacks and this season was no different.
It was a surreal game in many ways with Burley, Ambrose Wright, and Price at Selhurst Park and they even introduced their two new players at half time, Edgar Davids and Pablo! Two other ex Ipswich players were at the centre of all the action, Alan Lee and Owen Garvan seemed very keen to put one over on the Town but thanks to a brilliant team display they could not, and in the end both players spent most of the game talking to the ref and Garvan in particular helped get our young player Townsend sent off. Many Town fans had a soft spot for Owen but he lost many of those supporters today.
Jon Stead was awesome it what may have been his last game in a blue shirt. Lets just hope we have some new players in before next week.
