    Wonder if Zaha will get banned for the final now after doing a 'Rooney' last night?

    Poyet might get a chance at a Premier League job depending on how the end of season merry go round works out. He made the right decision not going to Reading though.

    I see that Poyet has been suspended by Brighton for his comments after the Play-off game this week.

    Well, we seem to be doing a good job of imploding spectacularly. I'm not sure it's as straightforward as it seems. One story I've heard is that he was trying to negotiate a contract without a compensation clause if he leaves, while actually having another job lined up, which he was going to sod off to as soon as the ink was dry - i.e. he was trying to save his new employers 2.5m (the value of that clause in his current contract).

    I'm not sure I buy that, it'd be a stupid thing to try and pull off (it couldn't be kept secret once he took up the new job, and surely the reputational damage would last a while). There's definitely something up though, Gus wasn't his usual animated self in the Palace game and the team's performance was unexpectedly awful.

    Hard to imagine what the job in that rumour might have been. I can't see Everton taking a punt on him but I guess it might have been abroad.

    :-)

    Northampton are all over the place. Bradford look like they'll score every time the ball goes in the box.

    Bradford should get a couple more on the counter in the second half. I wouldn't be surprised to see a reverse of their Cup Final defeat.

    The other half is living it up today in the Wembley hospitality while I'm stuck at home watching on Sky. Usually I'm the one abandoning her for the day to go to football.

    Anyway come on the golden boys, keep Holloway off MotD please.

    Agreed - I like Palace but unfortunately their manager is insufferable. Try hard twat.

    I suppose if Watford do win they'll be able to sign some actual players next season as opposed to loaning them all?

    Although I'm pretty apathetic towards both teams, I think I'd prefer Watford to go up just to see what they'd do in the transfer window.

    Come on Palace, lets have a second half masterclass.

    So many injuries - the fact that they've had 'sit around' for two weeks before playing the final probably hasn't helped.

    Real shame to see Vydra go off - his goals in the last game were stunning. I think that will swing the game in favour of Palace.

    Great save from Almunia - he'll be off to a bigger club if Palace don't go up. ;)

    @NotSoSlim - hah, I blame the fact that I've been sitting in the sun for most of the first half.
