The results are inconsequential to this lot...that was proven by their choice of manager. All these vulchers are bothered about is picking as much meat off the bones before leaving an empty carcass behind in 3 years time. Where are the pro Kean / pro Venky's / pro Kentaro / pro Berg / pro Hendry monkeys now?
Brilliant from Rochina. Beat two and smashed a shot against the angle. So unlucky
@CryerRovers not going to lie I would take the draw ;)— @roddick79 03 November 2012
yayayayayayaya!!!! RT @CryerRovers Vukcevic on for Markus Olsson— @teresadc 03 November 2012

dangerous dave says
Pathetic first half performance nobody can deny this!!!!
OUT WITH SHAW AGNEW BLACK HENDRY SINGH
Simon Vukcevic on for Markus Olsson. The penalty was awarded after Henley penalised for tripping Bolasie, but Robbo gives Rovers a little hope
Absolutely brilliant from Robinson as Murray misses second penalty. Murray's initial kick saved and Robbo gets up to save his rebound effort.
@CryerRovers you just can't polish one can you.— @hargreg67 03 November 2012
GOAL Palace 2-0. Hanley pulls Murray down in the box and the Palace striker picks himself up to put hosts 2-0 up from spot
@CryerRovers id have preferred to see vukcevic on instead. player who came to us with a reputation n aint been given enuf oppurtunity— @Andrew_J_Archer 03 November 2012
Zaha is simply too good for Rovers at the moment. Taking the mickey
@CryerRovers i see the negative comments are back already! "nothings changed" "same old ****" Things wont change until u GET BEHIND UR TEAM!— @Dompruggy 03 November 2012
Formica on for Pedersen
Morten so close to a leveller. His shot saved by Speroni
Brilliant defending from Hanley stopped a certain goal. Zaha walked past Rovers defence his shot parried by Robbo and Hanley just gets there before Murray to clear,
Rochina on for Kazim-Richards
Bolasie fires over from the edge of the area after run and cross from Zaha. Rovers no better yet
4:03pm Sat 3 Nov 12
the damage done by genius kean and his backroom staff is obvious for all to see....this will take years to rectify, if ever. Have black and hendry been given their marching orders yet. If not, why not?
Second half underway and Rovers have to improve
@CryerRovers so are Huddersfield Town today. Shockingly boring #htfc— @sarahjanepreece 03 November 2012
@CryerRovers shocking no attacking threat very poor Rovers team— @LeeDunleavy 03 November 2012

J.C - Rishton says
Welcome to the mad-house Henning - now you've seen first hand how poor this squad actually is after 4 transfer windows under JA/SK - it needs completely overhauling.
Promotion this season ? - A tough ask but not impossible if the loons from Pune back you in January with money AND everyone lets you bring in the players that YOU want and let you ship out the dross that Kean and Anderson bought in.
3:56pm Sat 3 Nov 12
Same old ****, no confidence going forward, no service to Rhodes, Palace by far the better side, what the **** are we paying that OAP robbing **** Hendry for ?? Defence is garbage, Berg appointment bad move !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
3:49pm Sat 3 Nov 12
berg out kean in
3:59pm Sat 3 Nov 12
What has changed??
Backroom staff the same: TICK.
inexperienced manager: TICK.
same incompetent tactics and formation: TICK.
Holloway has just been presented to a very happy Palace crowd
Murray;s injury time header has given Palace half time lead. Rovers have been poor
GOAL Palace 1-0
@CryerRovers because he's a very average footballer and I would imagine he hasent impressed berg in training— @schofben 03 November 2012
Bolasie's diving header beats Robinson but hits post and goes wide. Let off again
I just feel so sorry for Rhodes. The service this season has been so poor, and yet he has still scored goals. You can't help but wonder what damage he could do if he had support.
@CryerRovers He looks set for a grt future. Played vry well agnst L'Pool and ManUtd last season! Hope he has a grt future with Rovers itslf.— @ParthyModi 03 November 2012
Owen Garvan volleys over bar for Palace after great work from Zaha. Bolasie then sees a shot well saved by Robinson. The Rovers keeper has been busy so far.
Adam Henley has started really well for Rovers. Playing against the dangerous Zaha but coping very well
For those asking Gomes is injured and away following looks about 500
@OneRovers @BRFC_Fans @CryerRovers what's away following like lads?— @Antrobbo77 03 November 2012
Palace almost took the lead. Bolasie cross from the right flashes across goal but Murray and Zaha just miss getting a touch. Wingers causing Rovers loads of problems here
Etuhu heads Pedersen corner against bar. GReat header, very unlucky
Paul Robinson comes to Rovers' rescue as he tips Damien Delaney's header wide, from Bolasie's corner. Palace the better side
@CryerRovers come on Rovers!! Following you from Hong Kong Andy!! 3-0 to the lads I reckon!!— @Gazrovers 03 November 2012
Palace almost break deadlock. Bolasie beats his man and then slips Murray in down the right channel. His pull back is hacked clear by Scott Dann
Not a lot happening in the first 15 minutes. Neither goalkeeper tested. Palace look dangerous and quick on the break though.
@CryerRovers result not as important today apart from changes the i do not think berg influence will av an effect till next match— @neilrich1967 03 November 2012
2:54pm Sat 3 Nov 12
hope his managerial career is as successful as his playing career as both started with Crystal Palace!!"
Yannick Bolasie shoots just wide for Palace.
Underway here at Selhurst. Looks like Rovers lining up with a 4-4-2, with Kazim-Richards alongside Jordan Rhodes.
RT @CryerRovers: I would imagine the directors box will be an interesting place at Selhurst today. Holloway, Shaw, Shebby.......— @ChrisStaffa 03 November 2012
Teams coming out here at Palace. Murphy has captain's armband back after returning to the side. Adam Henley make his first appearance of the season.
@CryerRovers , good that a class right back like Berg has already sussed That Orr's average at best.— @PaulQ157 03 November 2012
RT @BenWhittingham3: @CryerRovers henning berg is obv a lot better manager than kean n black. In 2 days he has seen wat we all know. Bradley orr is shite— @copie1982 03 November 2012
@CryerRovers that's a blow especially with Huddersfield coming up— @jonathanrogerss 03 November 2012
2:31pm Sat 3 Nov 12
Time for murphy to grow some and show us why he's here. Any more mediocre performances from him and Berg will replace him in Jan. I want to see a bit more of Vukcevic as he has looked good when in the side.
Good luck Rovers and good luck Henning.
2:34pm Sat 3 Nov 12
Good luck H BERG and BRFC
Today's match is tough....!!!!
C Palace are a young energetic team and they have some V good up and coming players.
Something, i'd like to see at BRFC as we have too many older statesmen.
Yes we do need the older experienced players, but the're not able to last the 90 minutes we require and football is fast paced especially in Premiership.
We may already have the players at the club but the're untried and untested as yet. Lets hope they get a chance and establish themselves especially the portagese contingent.
I think we will need to concentrate on building up our younger players and creating a bigger and better football academy in order to just stay within sight of other major football teams.
Hence, I am in favor of bringing in young potentials from around the world but of course we have to nurture our own young players in England also.
I actually envy Palace as they have many exciting players destined for the top.
I know it will be tough against Palace and obviously would like 3 points but will have to settle for 1 point at the least.
I'm quite happy with the team selected to play at Palace and lets hope we get a result today.......!!!
I wish we could buy some of their exciting players like Zaha, etc..
but i know they will go to top clubs in premiership...!!!
Holloway wont be taking charge of team for Palace but expected to be unveiled to the crowd.
TEENAGER Adam Henley makes his first appearance of the season as new boss Henning Berg makes four changes for this afternoon's trip to Crystal Palace.
Henley replaces Bradley Orr at right back, with Danny Murphy in for the injured Jason Lowe, Markus Olsson on the left wing and Martin Olsson at left back.
The clash has been given extra spice by Palace's appointment of Ian Holloway as their new manager this morning.
