LAST SEASON WAS… 

Completely very good. The one intention we had initially of the marketing campaign was to outlive within the Premier League by any means attainable, so to complete in 15th spot and find yourself a cushty seven factors away from the relegation zone was a incredible achievement.

OUR BIGGEST HERO 

With out Mat Ryan in aim we’d have been relegated. He received us at the very least 10 factors throughout the season and he’s a genuinely likeable bloke, sprinting the size of the pitch to have fun with outfield gamers each time we rating on the Amex.

OUR BIGGEST VILLAIN 

Sussex Police didn’t precisely cowl themselves in glory for the house recreation with Palace, telling the press that visiting followers had turned up with knuckledusters and knives when all that basically occurred was that they allowed Palace’s Blazing Squad tribute band, loads of whom didn’t have tickets, to interrupt into the stadium, which left real Palace followers with tickets stranded exterior.

YOUNGSTER TO WATCH 

Regardless of spending over £6m on gamers for the event squad since 2015 and the under-23s successful promotion to PL2 Division One, not one in every of them has made a league debut.

MOST UNDERRATED PLAYER

Dale Stephens. He’s a type of gamers who you don’t discover fairly how good he’s till he isn’t there.

HOPES & FEARS For 2018-19 

The most effective we might hope for is a top-10 end and one other memorable cup run following our first FA Cup quarter-finals look for 32 years. It could even be good to win greater than two away video games and rating greater than 10 objectives on the street. As for fears, nicely second-season syndrome is one however the membership appear to be very eager to speak about that, most likely primarily based on Chris Hughton’s expertise at Norwich, so hopefully it’s one thing we are able to keep away from.
