Great update buddy
Ooh, I don't know if you want him to leave or not because you want him at Spurs but you want Zaha back ;)
Interesting turn of events here.

Yannick Bolasie injured on International Duty

Crystal Palace winger, Yannick Bolasie has suffered strained ankle ligaments, according to The Daily Mail. The winger, who has been one of the first names on the team sheet has injured himself while away on International Duty with the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is believed that the winger twisted sharply, causing searing pain in his ankle.

In a press conferance with Sky, Crystal Palace manager, Gus Poyet has hit out at the Congo Manager. "One of our most important players is now out injured. Although we have cover, he [Bolasie] has been one of our better players. These friendlies are useless and they do not serve a purpose. If anything, they cause a problem because it leads to important players getting injured."

This is not the first time that managers have hit out at managers. Just last year, Then Manchester City manager, Roberto Mancini hit out at the England coaching staff after goalkeeper Joe Hart suffered an expected fracture in his finger, causing him to miss a derby against Manchester United.

The player has undergone a full assessment, and it is expected that Bolasie will be sidelined for at least three weeks.
Love the graphics Nick! Definitely keep it up! :)

Poyet slams dressing room after embarrasing loss

Palace defender Danny Gabbidon has spoken to the press about how Poyet let loose in the dressing room after Palace's embarrassing 2-0 loss against Leicester City in the Capital One Cup fourth round.

"He was very angry, it has made us all very disappointed. We played badly and we are very sorry to the fans, it will not happen again."

Speaking to the press after the match, Poyet also made it public knowledge on how disappointing he was with his teams effort. "The team were embarrassing out there. They expect to stay up in the league but they cannot beat a team in the league below, no disrespect to them [Leicester]. I have had strong words and I will make sure that my team will never disappoint fans again. They have to remember the luxuries that they are on. They have to kick a ball and if they do badly it doesn't matter, they will still pick up their pay check. They need to remember that it is the fans that pay their wages, and they need to show the fans that they appreciate them by playing well."

This, incidentally is not the first time that Poyet has hit out during the dressing room. On May the 18th, Poyet wrote an e-mail to staff and players demanding an explanation on why excrement had been left on the changing room floors of his now current team Crystal Palace.
Unlucky against Leicester, maybe the fault of not playing Mattheus?
SoTM almost definite winner also! And also you are at 7th, which is very good imo.
Just spent time catching up with this story and I love how you present the match results. It must take a long time to get each post written up with the graphics you use. Keep it up.
