Crystal Palace

Premier League season in a sentence - how did your team do this term?

The ESPN FC crew discuss the Premier League team of the year.

As the dust settles on another Premier League season, it is time to reflect on the campaign and how it went for each club. Was it a success or failure? We asked our Premier League bloggers to assess their season in a sentence.

1. Chelsea

Worthy champions from start to finish -- "boring" is just a jealous state of mind.

2. Manchester City

Taken to the cleaners by Arsenal in the Community Shield, ill-prepared City did not heed that wake up call and suffered for most of the season.

3. Arsenal

Crystal Palace confirm their progress with season-ending win over Swansea

Marouane Chamakh was the lone scorer as Crystal Palace saw off Swansea 1-0.

For Palace fans, football almost feels a bit like a bit of a dream at the moment. The club secured their highest-ever Premier League finish, with the best squad the club has ever had, some of the most entertaining players the team has ever had and they're all managed by a cult hero with nice hair. It's almost exactly what most Eagles would have ask for if you told them to write down their ideal scenario five years ago.

Five years ago, the club was still in administration and had just avoided relegation...

Alan Pardew hails 2014-15 as his best after Newcastle to Palace switch

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew details how his side can improve from their current midtable position.

If Alan Pardew's Crystal Palace side beat Swansea at Selhurst Park on Sunday, the manager who started this campaign as the focal point of frustration for a vocal army of Newcastle supporters will have claimed 57 points from the 37 Premier League games he has taken charge of this season. It is a record that Pardew is rightfully proud to promote, and as he sat down with ESPN FC for an exclusive interview to reflect on a campaign that he describes as his best yet in a 16-year management career, one...

Van Gaal's Manchester United can't let old boy Steve Bruce embarrass them

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says he hopes the warm reception given to wantaway goalkeeper David de Gea, will convince the Spain international that his long-term future is at Old Trafford.

Wayne Rooney wasn't kidding anyone when he tried to put a positive spin on a disappointing campaign this week by declaring that the season's main objective of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League had been achieved.

Yes, they will finish in the top four compared to seventh in 2013-14, but a trophyless season simply isn't good enough for a club like Manchester United.

Full marks to manager Louis van Gaal for echoing the club's competitive ethos when he warned of a "rough summer" for some of his...

Palace continue ascent with determined win at Liverpool

Crystal Palace crashed Steven Gerrard's Anfield farewell with a 3-1 victory over the Liverpool skipper's side.

Liverpool must really hate Crystal Palace. That's three times in the last year that Palace have stuck it to the Reds. Last year it was to end the Merseyside club's title dreams and this season it was to ruin Steve Gerrard's last game at Anfield.

But it's about time, really, as for years Liverpool dominated Palace and the Eagles never seemed to get a result against them. Chuck in a 9-0 loss at Anfield in 1989, a 6-1 first day of the season defeat in 1994 and constant disappointments and it's...

LIVERPOOL, England -- With 17 years' service, Steven Gerrard has been a Liverpool player for longer than 10 percent of the club's history and is the only player left standing from the 1990s.

On the occasion of his final game at Anfield ahead of his move to the L.A. Galaxy, a club unafraid to show emotions dabbed tears unapologetically in considering a glorious past, rather than the tepid sendoff that came with losing 3-1 to a vastly more enterprising Crystal Palace team.
