This is a thread for happy memories. Highlights for me were the home win against Notts County, and strangely the defeat at Palace, so tense for 85 minutes just waiting for the inevitable goal and not daring to believe. I was so proud of the team that day how they held on for so long with 10 men.

As an exile, I loved the improved connection between the club, manager, fans and community. I loved seeing someone clearly intelligent responding to questions and acknowledging the good and the bad in our performances. I loved the confidence that gave me in our long term future, even if the short term was rocky. I loved the promotion of youth, and use of loans to help bring players on. I loved having a manager who's mistakes are those of inexperience, rather than incompetence or stupidity.

I never expected huge, immediate improvement, and I absolutely expected some major set backs with such an inexperienced manager, but I was enjoying the ride, and hoped to enjoy it for much longer as he, and we, improved and learned together.

Absolutely gutted.

Thanks Micheal Jolly for turning things around, I thank you for what you have done and wish you had a little more time.
Wishing you good look for the future unless you play against us of course.  UTM

I don't know what your payoff will be but hopefully enough to buy a razor and an iron for your shirt collar ready for your next interview at RBS or Lloyds


Well I did try to tell you all Jolley was a mistake and Johnson is a lying fornicator who is going to screw us all more than Jolley did

Will always be grateful that we never dropped back down to the National league in his 1st season.

Seemed like a good guy who connected with the fans well.

Good luck to him in the future pretty sure we will see him back at BP against us in the future!

All I can say is thanks for the last 10 games of 2016/2017 and keeping our league status...thanks for the palace experience and giving our youth a chance.
Nice try MJ, you dipped your toes into managing an EFL team and gave it a go, unfortunately your lack of experience and inability to learn from mistakes cost you your job
If I could give you any advice, look at this opportunity you are given, disect where it went right and wrong and do something you never did whilst here...learn from your mistakes...
