2015/16 In Review: September

1 June 2016


The month began with the closing of the transfer window as Adlene Guedioura joined Watford and Glenn Murray's time with the Eagles came to an end as he moved on to Bournemouth having scored 46 times in his 127 games for the Eagles.

The international break was in full swing as Joe Ledley, Wayne Hennessey and Jonny Williams' hopes of reaching Euro 2016 came closer and James McArthur and Chung-yong Lee found themselves on the scoresheet for their countries. Meanwhile Williams was sent on loan to Nottingham Forest to get some more gametime under his belt. 

After all that Premier League football finally got back underway as Palace celebrated their 110 year anniversary with a first v second clash against Manchester City, but a last-minute Kelechi Iheanacho goal stole the points for the table toppers. During the celebrations, Darren Ambrose's stunning strike against Manchester United back in 2011 was voted the club's Goal of the Decade by fans.

"Not a bad effort... OH! What a goal by Darren Ambrose!"

Another single goal defeat to Tottenham Hotspur followed ahead of a meeting with south London rivals Charlton Athletic in the next round of the Capital One Cup, and the Addicks were easily brushed aside by a 4-1 margin with Dwight Gayle hitting a hat-trick to send his side through.

Good morning Palace fans!

Ahead of the game at Watford fans were lifted by the news that Yannick Bolasie had put pen to paper on a new three-year contract at the club, with Alan Pardew quoted as saying: "This is a good news story for the football club, to secure this guy. Not only is he an exciting guy who the fans love, he’s a great person and a great character unspoilt by the fame and success he has had."

At Vicarage Road, this time the Eagles found themselves on the right end of a 1-0 scoreline as Yohan Cabaye tucked away a penalty to put his side back on track as they finished September in seventh spot.
