Palace beat Sunderland 1-0 at a fog-bound Selhurst Park to take all three points and to be fair we were good for the win. Sunderland had their moments, but Palace edged it in terms of possession and shots on target. Julian Speroni had to make some good saves in goal but nothing you wouldn't expect a top goalkeeper to pull off. So, Palace start the Christmas & New Year campaign with a win, not a bad early present!

Here's a refreshing aside, whilst I really didn't like Roy Keane as a player (a thug at best!) as a manager he's showing real tact and simplicity which is really refreshing. This is a quote from him after the game:
"I don't think we deserved anything. You've got to earn the right to win a game of football and it just passed us by. That makes it all the more frustrating,"
