Crystal Palace

Rewind: When Cantona attacked a fan

Rewind to 1995

Sanogo hopes to soar with Eagles

Zaha, Chamakh impress as Palace's astonishing hot streak continues

Marouane Chamakh, right, helped himself to a brace while Wilfried Zaha, left, had a hand in all three goals as Palace ran out 3-2 winners over the Saints.

There's a good chance we might have entered a parallel universe at the start of 2015. A universe where Palace win games, playing attacking, exciting football and are sixth favourites to win the FA Cup. If anyone had suggested such nonsense back in December when the Eagles were struggling to impress under Neil Warnock all that would have seemed like some sort of Hollywood sports epic, and yet here we are, three weeks into January, with Palace one of the form teams in England.

Alan Pardew now has...

When Manchester United's Eric Cantona attacked a fan in 1995

The ESPN FC crew revisit Eric Cantona's kung-fu kick against a Crystal Palace fan from over 20 years ago, where Cantona was suspended nine months from Manchester United.

On Jan. 25, 1995, with one ugly kick off the field, Eric Cantona managed to overshadow any of his most beautiful kicks on it. During a 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace, the Manchester United forward had lost control, crossing the line in every sense: he threw himself, feet first, at Palace supporter Matthew Simmons.

Even before that night 20 years ago, Cantona had been labelled Le Brat by the French press. After a series of incidents in his homeland, he had announced his retirement from the game in 1991...

Crystal Palace's survival chances can be boosted by four transfer targets

Wilfried Zaha is on loan, but needs to return to Palace for good.

It's been a quiet January so far in terms of transfers, not just for Palace but for all clubs in the Premier League. Tightened purse strings seem to have become the theme of the New Year transfer window in recent years unless you're Manchester United or QPR. Traditionally, it had been proven that spending big works, but recent results go against that trend.

QPR went down in 2013, despite spending a second highest 20.5 million pounds in the January transfer window while Palace stayed up last season...

Everything looking up after a wonderful day for Crystal Palace

Dwight Gayle seems to be a completely different player under Alan Pardew than he was under Neil Warnock.

Saturday probably couldn't have turned out any better for Crystal Palace. They won a huge game at Burnley after fighting back impressively from two goals down, rivals Millwall, Charlton and Brighton all lost, and Palace were an unprecedented first on Match of the Day in the evening -- a spot usually reserved for the big teams. These are halcyon days for Eagles fans.

That's now three games with Alan Pardew as manager, and three wins, nine goals scored, three conceded and unbeaten in 2015. If you...

Yaya Sanogo must show graft and guile to be a hit at Crystal Palace

Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo has joined Crystal Palace on loan for the rest of the season.

It's often said you shouldn't judge a book by its cover -- although these days most people download books to their tablet, so perhaps it should be "don't judge a book by the comment reviews." But it still rings true, especially when it comes to transfers at Crystal Palace.

You see, Palace have a history of taking unfancied players -- particularly strikers who have been written off by other clubs -- and turning them into stars.

And it's for this reasons that Eagles fans shouldn't be too disappointed...

Palace loan gives Yaya Sanogo a shot to kick-start his Arsenal career

Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo has joined Crystal Palace on loan for the rest of the season.

There's a lot to be read into the fact that Arsene Wenger rejected loan offers for Yaya Sanogo from clubs in Ligue 1 in favour of Crystal Palace. He wanted the young Frenchman to play more in the Premier League because he's clearly a player the manager has a lot of faith in.

Sanogo has unfairly become a figure of fun to some Arsenal fans, who point out he's scored just once in his career in north London. When you put it in such stark terms, it sounds bad, but he's made only 20 appearances, and 11...
