The liquidation (surely 'melting down'? Ed.) of Crystal Palace has been put off, as the CPFC 2010 consortium finally agreed in principle a deal to buy the club and the ground. PWC administrator Brendan Guilfoyle, who unhelpfully described the talks as "like a Rubik's Cube", extended his original 3pm deadline to allow the fine print to be squared on a deal that should save the club from extinction. Despite the stultifying melodrama of England's World Cup squad dominating the sport headlines, Palace's plight hasn't been ignored: fans led a protest march to HBOS parent Lloyds today, while even fans of arch-rivals Brighton hope the Eagles survive. Brings a tear to the eye, that.
