The dailymail adds to the gossip and tells us that "There was a truce of sorts yesterday with Charlton's directors agreeing to sit in the same VIP box as their Palace opposite numbers, including owner Jordan, the man who outrageously described Charlton's fans as imbeciles." but then points out that "it is difficult to argue against the belief of Pardew that Charlton were the dominant side. They certainly created more chances but appear to be a team lacking the finishing power they will need if they are to finish this campaign either with automatic promotion straight back to the Premier League or a play-off place" and "Chris Iwelumo was guilty of a horrible miss, sidefooting wastefully wide in front of goal from Zheng Zhi's cut-back."
Meanwhile, there's Conrad Leach in the independent, a bit more used to fizzy-football perhaps than Mr Rowan, and with an insight into the lack of 'full-throttle' football that Pards seems to have given us, "I don't think we're that sort of team," said Pardew, "I miss it a bit, to be honest."
On tiscali there's a few helpful quotes from Pards and on cafc Pards lets us know that he thought that Racon "was outstanding in his first game in the Championship". And if you care how the others got on, the telegraph has its usual fizzy round-up.
And if you really want to see how the other lot suffered, and see a few stats, you can read their biased report here in which they make the absurd claim that the match could have gone either way. Ha, but it didn't did it.
On the player front, Danny Mills made his reappearance as number 44 - must be his age - and a keen fan is obviously inspector sands. And after all the pre-season talk about our little irish fella not lasting the season, there he is having played every single minute, in the fizzies anyway, along with Ambrose and Weaver.
