Blossy's Palace - From brink of extinction to life in Premier League
Reporter Andy Bloss will be covering the majority of Palace’s away games this year. It also just so happens he is a massive Palace fan. In his new weekly column, he gives his views on his boyhood club. . .
If you asked my colleagues about my state of wellbeing ahead of the Tottenham game this Sunday they would no doubt give you a unified answer.
“Blossy is bouncing off the walls with excitement.”
It would be a fair enough observation. I think I must mention Palace at least once every five minutes in conversation and now the season is almost here, that has been probably been cut down to once a minute.
But why shouldn’t that be the case? This is probably one of the most exciting seasons in the club’s recent history.
We have gone from the brink of extinction to being in arguably the best league in the world. That is just typical Palace isn’t it?
This season is no doubt going to be a challenge. My work colleagues and friends have already said I should prepare for life back in the Championship next season .
We undoubtedly need to add to the squad and Ian Holloway is certainly finding it tough playing catch up with the other teams who are almost a month ahead of us in terms of preparation.
It is a huge step up to the Premier League and everyone is having to find their feet very quickly from management to players to owners.
Tottenham is probably one of the toughest teams we could have faced to begin with.
They have invested heavily in their squad this season and their midfield is one of the best in the Premier League in my opinion.
However when Jedinak puts in his first crunching challenge in on Lennon or Paulinho I am sure Spurs will know they are in for a hard game.
What all Palace fans know at the moment, (and what many pundits don’t know), is there is a real togetherness about this club which I don’t think was there the last time we were promoted.
I have been labelled a dreamer for saying Palace can stay up and perhaps people are right. But as Stephen Browett said this week, Palace have a habit of making dreams come true.
Bring on the Spurs.
