I've not been posting Palace Results this season for a few reasons, but mainly because I've been too busy. So, to make amends here's Neil Warnock's review of Palace in 2008.

Best Match - The 5-0 defeat of Burnley at Selhurst Park. That was special because we had to get the win to get in the play-offs and it turned into a special afternoon and night time. We worked so hard to get there from the start we had.

Worst Match - The 2-1 defeat to Bristol City in the first leg of play-offs at Selhurst. I thought we should have won the game if we played like we could. The heat and the kick off time were against us and to equalise but lose concentration and concede straight after made it very difficult for us in the second leg.

Biggest success - There are two things. The experienced players have been superb with the youngsters, giving them advice and guidance, while the young lads have surprised themselves. I have given them the chance and they have grabbed it. It has been very pleasing to see them develop as they have.

Biggest regret? - The chairman would have loved it if the Arabs had come and backed Palace rather than Manchester City.

Favourite Ground? - Personally, the Emirates when I went to watch Arsenal play. That was a best ground I have been to.

Worst Ground? - Blackpool is still being renovated so it was like a builder’s yard.

Best buy or loan? - Scott Sinclair last season and Craig Beattie this season. Beattie turned the season for us this time and Sinclair did a similar thing last year.

Hopes for 2009? - I think all we can ask for is that the lads give their all and do their best. We have got to try and get as many points on board and finish as high up in the table as we can and not worry so much about the clubs with the parachute payments and the big wage bills.
