There’s been a real sense of relief around our Crystal Palace fans here in the Transfer Tavern as they finally showed some fighting spirit against Middlesbrough at the weekend.
Many of our local Eagles punters were beginning to feel the Sam Allardyce factor was not going to kick-in in time with them meandering around in the relegation zone.
Beating Boro 1-0, though, highlighted that they do have plenty of grit and determination in their squad with it set to be bolstered by the return of Bakary Sako.
The pacy Palace player uploaded an image to his official Instagram account portraying that fact that he was back in training:
Good news again for our local Palace fans this week, who are beginning to believe that they will be in the Premier League again next season.
There’s still plenty of work to do, of course, and with Leicester, Swansea, Hull, Boro and Sunderland all keen to get out of trouble, no team can afford to take their foot off of the gas at this point.
Thoughts, Palace fans? Let us know below!
