Counted about 50+ in The Dolphin on Friday night and even more on Sunday lunchtime. Indeed based on a cursory glance through the windows as I walk past each evening Weds/Thurs/Fri/Sat evening sees most tables within view packed. The Golden Lion had one fella smoking outside looking unsteady on his ...

Goldberg was a naive idiot and Noades... well, I blame him for this whole situation in the first place (i.e., selling the club but keeping hold of Selhurst Park). For all his faults, Jordan is a Palace man at heart. OK, he may have made a few bad decisions and not marketed the club but he stuck to h...

I've got to agree with the Routledge comments. It didn't upset me too much when he went - losing a winger who could cross a ball and whose corners got past the first man would've been more of a blow. It's the manner in which he went after Spurs dangled the carrot that bugged me and it was much the s...

Not sure of the reason but it was Malcolm Allison who changed the nickname from 'Glaziers' to 'Eagles' and introduced the red and blue strip. It's been a sad sad week for the Palace, 10 years on and we're back where we bloody started. Administration was always on the cards but now it's happened it's...

I was wondering where my general indifference to 'gastropubs' came from and why I rarely drink in them. I'm inferior. Thanks for clearing that up - I know my place now.

I've just had another idea, maybe we could sell some of our organs to help keep the Dolphin afloat! Im willing to stump up a kidney. How about everyone else?Are you willing to do what it takes to ensure the survival of the premier establishment in Sydenham? I will gladly donate your other kidney. M...

£3.40 for a pint of cooking lager - outrageous :shock:

Maybe if it got a new shop front and reopened in Dulwich, Beckenham or Crystal Palace it wouldn't be considered so inconvenient.

Contributors to this forum are always moaning and complaining about lack of decent independent shops but here was one that sold quality produce but failed because it was either in the wrong place, it didn't advertise itself or people just couldn't be bothered. I'd be interested to know exactly what ...

Who's being selfish? They don't own cars and don't park there but don't want anyone else to park there either. How are the people who park there supposed to know that they're distressing someone by parking?
