James Daly: 'I love graceful Andre Moritz more than I do my girlfriend'

James Daly's Crystal Palace column, published every Friday in the Croydon Advertiser HAPPY New Year, readers. And what a happy start to 2013 it was for Palace as they brushed aside Wolves 3-1 at Selhurst on New Year's Day.

This was the same Wolves team that were in the Premier League last season and were supposed to be promotion candidates.

Two Andre Moritz free-kicks and a Yannick Bolasie goal put paid to that, to complete a double for the Eagles over Wanderers this season.

And a few days later the Eagles held Premier League side Stoke City at home in the FA Cup to a 0-0 draw.

To be honest, it was a poor Stoke side, who did nothing to dispel their image as long-ball thugs. Little Jonny Williams was on the receiving end of more dodgy challenges than the Crystal Maze.

And while most Palace fans would have taken a defeat to the Potters to avoid disruption from our promotion campaign (that still sounds weird to say), a fourth round tie with Manchester City awaits. Suddenly we're interested.

And this was all after a tricky December period, during which Palace chucked away more leads than a pet shop owner as the Eagles slipped down the table from top spot to fourth.

It's a crazy old league and while a few wins can take you rocketing up the league, a couple of draws and a defeat can result in you slipping down the ladder quicker than a rubbish window cleaner.

But yet again, against Stoke, my man Moritz was on form. And, to be honest, I think I've fallen in love with Moritz after his beauty of a brace.

How can you not fall for a player that is so graceful, stylish and talented – my heart flutters each time he's on the ball.

I'll be honest, I'm pretty sure I love him more than my girlfriend. Which is understandable as she takes a terrible free-kick.

So, roll on 2013. If it continues as well as it has started for Palace then it's going to be a very fun year.
