Palace beat United 2.1. Great advert for FL.
Loving It! Their side was reserve-ish as well so even better
They were awesome.
Their first goal was fantastic. The second was offside which makes it somehow sweeter!
Hopefully either Palace or Cardiff will make the final and pick up a Europa League spot.
I wouldn't have swapped our 3 points for that bit of glory, but well done Palace!
Great win for Palace! Although I note they have slipped down the table, so maybe this will be to big a distraction and their League form may suffer. But, for now, may they bask in the glory of their win!
I liked the look of Zaha for Palace, only 19. I think someone will come in for him, I wonder if Nigel was watching!
And lo, they were drawn together.
Yeah, was the only one supporting Palace in a pub full of Man U fans, but in the end I think they deserved it, well done you Eagles. Slightly disappointed that we limped out of the last round to them, as I think we could have won at Old Trafford tonight as that is the poorest United performance I have seen for a long time; toothless upfront. Still delight for Crystal Palace.
They would need to win the final to get the spot though. It's not like the FA Cup, where the runner-up gets the European slot if the winner has already qualified through league position (with the league cup, the european slot goes to the 6th placed PL side instead - don't ask me why)
Had Arsenal beaten Birmingham in last season's final, Liverpool would be in the Europa League now, not Birmingham (Arsenal of course would still be in the CL)
Well done Palace. The less silverware ManU win, the less we'll have to hear about them from a fawning media, and that can only be good for football.
Well done the Eagles. The other thing no-one has mentioned is that this will annoy Brighton fans as well as Man U fans, so a double whammy!
One will! They've been drawn against each other!
Are Palace playing on Friday? That seems really harsh.
Well, it had already been decided before they made the QFs. But yes, surely Sky could have either subsequently arranged to show a different Championship match on Friday night (thus moving Palace-Derby back to Saturday), or (probably easier) shown United-Palace as their Tuesday night game and made one of the other QFs their Wednesday night game.
And the first leg is the 9th january. They should think about resting a few for Boxing day and saving their energy for early Jan and winnigna trip to wembley!!
excellent to see united humbled.
Plastic manure fans up and down the country must have taken so much stick when they shuffled in to work today. It's not hard to imagine last night all the pub bores in their replica shirts, crying into their beers, putting on a Manc accent (I've heard it done) and coming out with all kinds of excuses.
What a breed...
