Here it is. The most eagerly anticipated rivalry in English football.

I can picture Brighton dominating for large spells of the game but we still get something from it.

Maupay loves a goal against you guys doesn't he?

He scored once and celebrated like a tit. Cahill kept him quiet in the last fixture.

Zaha is the player who raises his game for this one. Away dressing room gets flooded with Dunk's tears

What is the deal with the rivalry between you to? Where does it come from?

In the 70's the sides often competed with each other in promotion battles and the fixtures were pretty heated. It brewed when Malcolm Allison was our Manager and they had Alan Mullery but took another gear when Terry Vennerbles became our Manager because of the his rivalry with Mullery when they were both players at Spurs.

Mullery got a bit bitter when they lost a match. Gave our fans the two fingers and threw a couple of 2ps down in our dressing room and said that's what we was worth. Our players, staff and fans hated him while he and the Brighton fans hated our club. The clubs were head to head all that season. Brighton thought they had won the league Palace pipped them to the title on the last game of the season.

After that there was regular fighting between the clubs. Brighton even changed their nickname from Dolphins to Seagulls to counter react our Eagles. They just couldn't let it go. The 1979 season finished just like the 1977 season with us finishing above them on the last game of the season.

Alan Mullery then went on to become Crystal Palace's manager in the 80's but we never talk about that. The rivalry picked up pace again when one of Brightons best players had a career ending leg break in 1985. The violence escalated after that.

It's a very peculiar rivalry isn't it. Baffled me for ages how you could have Millwall and Charlton on your doorstep yet it's Brighton that you hate.

I want Palace to win, unless Jahanbakhsh plays, then I hope he scores a hat trick to get his career in England going... because compared to how it was in the Netherlands... he’s been a pretty massive flop.

Charlton have tried really, really hard to start a rivalry with Crystal Palace since the 90's but we just don't care about them. I think secretly we revel in that when we see there efforts to start a rivalry. Personally after there administration party, konga lines and laughing about the tram crash I couldn't  really care less if they folded. There new 'saviour' comes across like a walking meme at the minute.

As for Millwall, well, there is a rivalry but everybody hates them. There more concerned with West Ham and Chelsea but the police response to Palace/Millwall is on a similar level to Palace/Brighton.

Every fibre in my body wants to find an excuse to say why that was a penalty but I cannot find one.

So unbelievably soft again. I just don't think that should be a penalty. Could say that for the majority though.

There is a hand on Batshuayi but he starts falling after Lamptey has taken it off xD

Incredibly soft.

Maupay should have passed it instead of trying it himself. Lamptey was wideopen there.

If feels like we have spent the last hour waiting for Brighton to score. These tactics are dreadful to watch.

On a more positive note I've been impressed with Riedewald. Serious question marks over why its taken Roy so many years to start with him.

What a strike that was. Brighton get their reward for the pressure they've been putting on.

We have allowed them to control the game. Got what we deserved. Well done Roy.

I don't get why you'll were sitting back either. You'll could have gotten another goal and closed this out but yes you'll did let them back into this.

Well in good news. Palace now have 4 minutes odd to get another goal. Stupidity to try and slide in. Deserved red.

Completely killed the momentum of his side there. They could have gone on to win that.

Putting aside the stupidity towards the end Brighton really have to learn to start finishing better because they get into some very good positions and Maupay is capable its just not happening for them.

Well five games in and I cannot wait for this season to be over. This club is going absolutely nowhere under Roy Hodgson. You can be pragmatic but interesting. A status this man has shown no interest in achieving.

That's some ridiculous stats at the end of the game. Palace had 1 shot on goal and Brighton had 19.

Surely the club must also see the same and want to move on? What does Roy have going for him that keeps him there?

I think Steve Parish is still traumatised from appointing Frank De Boer and seeing him play Andros Townsend as a right wing back.

Although after years of Hodgson football I actually reckon Townsend would be a decent wing back now ha

That Dunk tackle xD 

If someone was offside, is it still a red :ph34r:?
