On This Day in 1995
Despite treating the game as an away fixture and staying overnight in a luxury hotel before travelling to Selhurst Park, landlords Crystal Palace were beaten 2-0 by their rampant tenants. Goals from Vinnie Jones and Marcus Gayle pushed the Dons into the Premier League's top eight with the Eagles joining Chelsea and Manchester City in the relegation mire. "How eight of them can look me in the face and pick up their wages is beyond me," a clearly furious Palace boss Alan Smith commented afterwards. - historicaldons.com

To be honest I'd rather we had a fit Appiah - he went through a rough patch of form when the whole squad was doing so. He was snatching at chances because chances were few and far between. But I think we have to accept that a fit Appiah i.e. more than 50% of games played does not exist and he's too expensive for too little return as pretty much everyone can see.

Nervous about Saturday already. Need a loud crowd even if we go a goal down. 2 down and I'm leaving though :-)

Quite interesting article of the day.
Windie not meant to be, you need to see the original context it comes from that got misread and taken off at a fair old tangent.

Even if Appiah and Hanson only manage 6 games between them til the end of the season we'll need them

Hash that is it isn’t it. No confidence anymore either will stay fit for more than 2 games at a time

The Appiah that played at Wycombe away where I thought he was really good- i'd love to have someone like him in the team. Hanson for the 3.07 miliseconds he has been fit he may have done 1 or 2 decent things. The fact is neither are going to be fit and both are always going to be on the verge of another injury. So get rid of them both in the summer as a priority.

Trigger I fully understand your feelings re Hanson. Personally my frustration is I can see glimpses of what we’d get if he stayed fit and it would work for me. But we can’t keep him fit so it is a tough call. I’d however snap someone’s arm off if they offered 100k for Appiah. Whereas I know others would rather get him fit for us.

CW Chelsea hoover up all the kids in the area on the off chance. Mainly by inviting gullible parents to pay for them to be “in the academy” (they’re not) and because kids like to boats they’re at Chelsea they’d take that over a L1 club every chance. Sad really.

Sadly I’ve seen it.
Do we know what Nightingale's problem was Saturday? and will he be fit for Gills?

That Hudson-Odoi could have been one of our own. He went to primary school on our doorstep at Singlgate in Colliers Wood.

And Boothroyd has been pretty accurate in saying who is ready to step up from the nippers

Fair enough DO. For me 4/5 decent games from Appiah is a joke. He's the £400k loss on the balance sheet. Erik more culpable that Nil for ignoring all warning signs. Trotter-chased out of Bolton for being lazy, the gullible one again. Deji? Liability since his transfer fell thro. I think he is over hyped. Wally can't get him to fit either. Soares a 5% more mobile trotter with a training ground worldy every 6 months but give him credit for not being "bless" twit.

Defence is far better without Deji and his "I know best and will play where I want" attitude, getting into other players space. Poor decision maker - as was the decision to not take the bullseye we got offered for him in January.
If Jervis scores the winner at Bradford to keep us up it’s gonna be the weirdest mix of emotions ever 🤣

But let’s face it...
I’ve not been to anywhere near as many games this season as for the last ten seasons or so but i’ve seen nothing from Hanson that makes me think he’s worth having/keeping. I don’t doubt his effort though so he’s alright, just not right for us in our current state.

Appiah as a package is way below the line. Jervis isn’t even on the same page as Appiah and has been fit. Cup your ear again you prick.
Because information. He’s the bollox ,

Trigger-the fact that Deji has been playing with an injury since November would be enough to deify him if he was one of our own

Hanson when fit is exactly what we've missed all season. Very good player at this level.
18th Mar 2019 19:50:53 
[94.lo.gg.ed] 
The fact he's been injured so much is such a shame. Move on in the summer if possible (probably too expensive to keep of he's always injured)
MAD - then we shall agree to disagree on this one. Would also say Appiah has put in some good performances, when fit (Fleetwood FAC). Soares' legs have gone - time to retire. But completely agree re: Jervis & Trotter.

Well now... I think most of us desired and welcomed the return of Deji. As for how things turned out who knows what NA’s influence direct or indirect was on the fact that the boy just lost his mojo. I understand he attended Salad’s funeral recently which I think was nice. But the Twitter thing and his general malaise on the pitch means he’s another that will not be given a friendly wave goodbye.

Have a feeling with deji that a stronger manager character-wise might have got us a different outcome. We’ll never know that I am right.
Sorry DO, but I think he's turned out to be an ars.
