A season in tweets: Crystal Palace

KEVIN SENT – Despite being 40, Kevin Phillips could still manage to be excited about playing for Palace

After the excitement of going up via the medium of the unnecessarily dramatic Playoffs, the euphoria has diminished as Palace realise they still have a squad that wouldn’t look out of place in the Championship. The Eagles will be relying heavily on 94 year old Kevin Phillips and Marouane Chamakh – a man who found it near impossible to get ahead of Nicklas Bendtner in the Arsenal pecking order – to provide their goals. See any potential problems with that?

The season should be high on hilarious quotes for Ian Holloway, but low on actual Premier League points. Unless their motormouth manager can mastermind something approaching a miracle, they’ll be heavily involved in the relegation Royal Rumble and possibly the first team to be thrown over the ropes and out of the ring by a metaphorical Hulk Hogan.

Overly optimistic pre-season tweet:

Bitterly disappointed end of season tweet:
