The last year or so have been pretty tough going for Crystal Palace fans but it’s always nice to know that our support is recognised as one of the best around; a view backed up by the feature attached below.
Those who make regular visits to Selhurst Park will be well aware that the last year or has really tested the patience of the home faithful, given the dreadful run of form we’ve been on when playing in SE25. Of course, supporters still arrive at each game keen to get behind the team but it has become more and more difficult to maintain momentum in the stands with things going from bad to worse on the pitch.
Encouraged hugely by the presence of the Holmesdale Fanatics, who get a well deserved mention in the piece attached at the top of the page, Palace’s noise levels tend to increase organically across the ground when things are going well, with each good result creating something of a snowball effect in terms of our fan-base’s general positivity.
In truth, whilst Selhurst Park is always held up at the place where Palace fans come into their own, most of us would readily admit that our travelling support can be relied upon to create more noise than we do in South London, with our appearances at Wembley in last season’s FA Cup Semi-Final and Final providing the perfect platform for our fan-base to show those watching on from afar what we are really capable of.
You are guaranteed to be shocked by the person responsible for putting us forward as the best fans in Europe given his recent tumultuous history with our football club. I am more than happy to admit that I did a double-take when I saw his name attributed to the quotes below our section. Perhaps he’s finally seen the light.
