Crystal Palace legend on Hull City and Jonny Williams leaving

THERE is no reason why Palace can't go to Hull and win on Saturday after their previous two league games, writes Geoff Thomas. Hull and Leicester have had decent starts so Palace will go into this game thinking 'when was the last time we were beaten?'. They have steadied the ship and being an away game it will be difficult, no matter who you're playing. Palace will go into it thinking they have a good chance of getting something but I just think whatever happens on Saturday, they'll be fine after sorting things out since the start of the season. Neil Warnock has played the same system and I think this should be used again, keeping it solid in midfield but also using the pace of the guys down the wide areas. I can see Palace being dangerous on the break but Hull want points too and will try to be on the front foot at home. That might leave them to open up at the back. Hull are similar to Palace in many ways. Steve Bruce has done a good job up there. They have invested and I think both clubs can be proud of what they have done so far. When you play against the bigger clubs you do up your game a little bit and there is the temptation sometimes to take your foot off the gas when you play against sides who you think you should beat. If that's what happens with Hull then Palace need to take their opportunity. I saw Jonny Williams left on loan again this week. I really rate the kid and I remember seeing him a few years ago and thought he was something special. Palace haven't lost him yet. As long as he's still affiliated to the club then we've still got a chance of seeing the best of him there. The thing is, as a squad you need something different. He does give you something different but he's been unlucky. Neil does like having players with that physical aspect and it's proved to be working at the moment, so you can't say there's a 100 per cent certainty he's going to be playing week in, week out. You'd like to think he will play for Palace again but you put yourself in his boots. He won't want to be sat in the stands or on the bench for too long, because that doesn't do anybody good. If he does well at Ipswich then Neil might think again and think he has good value for his squad. It's a good opportunity for Jonny now at a good club.Geoff Thomas speaks exclusively to the Advertiser each week and his latest column features in today's newspaper.
