The Eagles have landed

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 So Palace promoted to the promised land:
the Eagles have finally landed after
an eight year wait.
Wembley final the richest ever:
worth a cool £120 million to
the South London boys.
Thousands of nervous cockneys
held their breath whilst pint-sized
striker Phillips held his nerve:
penalty duly dispatched.
And joker Holloway
has the last laugh,
the Premiership graced
with his presence again.



Palace’s play off win was a triumph for Ian Holloway’s organisation & tactics. I’m looking forward to hearing some more gems from the Bristolian next year!
