Premier League Season Review – Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace: 15th FA Cup: Runners-up Capital One Cup: Round Four A feature of many Premier League seasons is when an unfancied side does brilliantly up until the turn of the year and is riding high in a position where qualification for Europe becomes a potentially realistic ambition, before fading away dramatically in the final months as performance levels deteriorate and opposition sides become more adept at eliminating their threat.

Analysis: Pardew and Cabaye reunion can continue Crystal Palace’s ascent

Yohan Cabaye learnt many lessons on his return to Ligue 1. After repeatedly begging Newcastle United to be allowed to leave for what was seemingly the promised land of Paris St. Germain he found first-team opportunities relatively hard to come by and as a result he finds himself back in the Premier League, on Friday being unveiled as Crystal Palace’s new £10m record signing.
