Crystal Palace vs Manchester City a fortnight ago was quite a match. We lost in the 90th minute after a quite brilliant game, one that I thought we might just nick. In spite of the loss it was an outstanding showing for Palace against what is probably the best team in the country. A couple of years ago the analogy for the comparison would have been Tour St Bonnet vs Lafite or Potensac vs Latour but this year it’s more Grand-Puy-Lacoste vs Lafite, and we nearly, just nearly, matched the trophy squad.
