At current state of play, seven games into the Premier League season, Crystal Palace are the only team in the top nine levels of the English football pyramid – that’s 30 different divisions – to have zero league goals and zero league points to their name thus far.
With that in mind, it’s perhaps unsurprising that material was a little thin on the ground when eminent Palace fanzine Five Year Plan came to cobble together their poll for the September Goal of the Month competition…

Thankfully, Palace did actually manage to score one goal last month, with Bakary Sako’s header against Huddersfield in the second round of the Carabao Cup proving to be a strong contender to take the Eagles’ goal of the month honours.
That said, voting to abstain might be all the more fitting given the dire circumstances at Selhurst Park.
