GEOFF THOMAS: The Crystal Palace fans have helped turn this campaign around

Eagles legend and former Palace skipper Geoff Thomas gives us his views ...

MONDAY night shows why the Premier League is so special.

It was incredible to see Palace come back from 3-0 down and I have to be honest, I was starting to think about turning over to watch something else, but I am glad I didn't.

It was a fitting way to end the season at home and games like that show the culture of English football and why we love it.

To be fair to Liverpool, they were showing why they deserve to be where they are, but one goal changed things and the atmosphere was just brilliant. Everyone I speak to always talks about the fans and I think it is a really great credit to them and the club.

There is the section that just does not stop bouncing and that spreads around the ground, and they should take credit for their part in turning things around.

I was pleased for Dwight Gayle too, who has had a tough season. Maybe it was the expectation of the big money move and people looking for him to deliver straight away, but he is young and he is still learning and it was good to see him come on and do so well.

I was also pleased to see Julian Speroni pick up the player of the year award and that is very much deserved.

He has been a tremendous servant for the club and I hope he is rewarded with a new contract.

I hope things get sorted out because he deserves to be playing in the top flight and I hope it is still in a Palace shirt.

It would be nice for Palace to end the season with a win this week at Fulham – they have done it in front of their own fans, but I am sure that finishing on a high will carry over to pre-season.

I am sure Tony Pulis is already thinking about next season and he will know you can't sit still, but he has experience of that and a manager's job never stops, even when everyone goes on holiday.
