My Scottish team is Rangers.
I thought I couldn't think less of you. More fool me.
Would you ever get an old firm game played in front of a half empty stadium? Complaints about the £25 ticket prices, the game being midweek etc?
Manufactured fake rivalry. QED.
This underlines one of the main differences between Palace and Charlton fans. We understand full well that we support a small to middling club - bigger than Millwall, smaller than West Ham, around the same size as Charlton. None of us are labouring under the illusion that we are at the heart of a world-famous rivalry to match the Old Firm one, nor Arsenal-Spurs, nor whatever. That underlying self-depreciation that emerges now and then is indeed part of the fun of following Palace .
Charlton fans, on the other hand, like to give the deluded impression that they somehow follow this sleeping giant club, that is in every way superior to Palace, and if we'd only just look sideways on at the 1993 attendance figures, or something, we'd be woken from our illusion that they are in fact a mediocre (in every sense), struggling, non-entity, who would do well to provoke a rivalry with their nearest club, Leyton Orient, just to create a bit of excitement about the place.
My son dragged me down the boozer to watch Palace v Arsenal ( 2-3) game. We noticed the ultras were very quiet until they got a corner down the homesdale end. As soon as the sky cameras were on them, the flags came out and the bouncing and singing started. Camera pans away and the bouncing, singing and flag waving stopped again. It's all manufactured and fake, no spontaneity just contrived and stage managed chest thumping. I read a thread on there forums about who there main rivals are, the consensus was millwall brighton man utd and chelsea
Self-deprecation is the act of reprimanding oneself by belittling, undervaluing, or disparaging oneself, or being excessively modest. It can be used in humor and tension release. Self-deprecation is often perceived as being a characteristic of certain nations, such as Great Britain, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, where "blowing one's own trumpet" is frowned upon.
That hardly describes you lot ffs A load of media savvy IT workers from the home counties looking for acknowledgement from sky tv. Go and give your head a wobble.
You lots are obsessed with one corner of our support. If they're as attention seeking as you make out - it's obviously working .
It does when you get a corner. How's the spurs bloke that leads your loyal ultras doing ? Has he made his first million from selling stickers to kids yet ?
Im fascinated by it. Forty odd years of going football and i've never witnessed such a bunch of spotty drips. It's like a sect for repressed virgins. The rest of your ground is scattered with day tripping -soccer fans- form China, Usa etc.
Since you ask, I think there's been some sort of beef. I think the chap you're referring to has been ousted or something.
You prostesteth too much, methinks! (apologies for butchering the bard).
This, unfortunately, is becoming increasingly true.
Fucking right en all. How can you have some cunt ( chased and fucked off from spurs) turning up and pulling rank. He would have been ironed out at any other club.
It's happening at a lot of the prem clubs tbf. Not a good business plan if you go down. it's difficult getting lapsed/ priced out fans back once they stop going.
He might just be ill. I dunno. Just haven't seen him at any of the games I've been to recently.
Oh, but you do make out that the rivalry with Brighton is a big deal! It isn't.
No chance of us manufacturing a rivalry with Orient because we're better than the likes of you!
Or in my case from Penge.
Palace as a team though - the wobbles must drive fans mad. I saw them against Burnley at home last year and again just now the other week, and the contrast was stark. And then they play Arse/whoever and it's a team of headless chickens. Honestly think with 14-15 strongest players they have they should do better.
That arsenal performance wasn't very typical of how we've been playing of late though.
Not that we've been setting the world on fire, but we've shown fight and togetherness on the whole.
Left at half time. Said to my Arsenal mate, Do you mind if I leave. He's said no lets go now!! What a fucking library the Emirates is! 4-0 up and all i could hear were the palace fans at the far end.
Ended up in the olds kings head's just off London bridge. Somehow they had a stream of Leeds v Millwall which was cracking, load of wall going mental at the end.
Shit result, but a good day out none the less.
I went once a few year back and it was like being at the theatre. Bods in fucking suits and not a swear word used (apart from me ) Got to feel for the proper gooners priced out of there club for these wet saps.
A proper game that was. I could tell you a few stories about that pub it was our mobs hq many moon ago.
Makes you appreciate your club when you go to the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea, if that's what money does to a club then they can shove there trophies and £60 tickets up there aris.
LOL, my mate suggested it! I said, hold on, make sure millwall aint playing at home today !
You would only get grief in there if you are looking for it, or west ham.
Palace went into administration 8 years ago today!
23 year ago this week!
Notice the kids with Man utd hats and tops on Also a boycie and damon hill lookalikes in there.
First time I've noticed the nigel to the front of Igon from Ghostbuster's left trying to high five!
They have a few of those anniversaries...
Ha, I was at that game, we really should have nicked it at the end, great chance for Simon Rodger...
And Richard Shaw totally owned Cantona until the sending off, everyone could see why EC lashed out, but the press were so fawning on Man U and Cantona they all created a story that Shaw was ‘kicking him out of the game’ - utter crap. They can never handle it when a player they’ve never heard of takes on a superstar and wins.
Don't forget Paul Ince following up to offer the whole stand out.
Arthur (brown jacket and cap) from eastenders is in there as well, Bruce Forsyths grandson (red jacket next to Arthur) Wellards owner (next to Boycie). Elton John with scarf above Boycie. The amount of actors in the crowd makes me think they were at a pantomime or something
Cantona kicked that cunt because he was racially abusing him.
Oh crap. Two white guys fighting because ones been ‘racist’ to the other?
Cantona got sent off for kicking a black man who had the cheek to outplay him. That’s a bit more like racism.
How thick are you ?
ETA or make a point
