To many neutrals, the rivalry between Crystal Palace and Brighton is a baffling one but to those on either side of the divide, the shared sense of hatred remains as bitter a ever; that said, the video attached below is sure to make everyone across both fan-bases cringe enough to fall of their chair.
Being an established global product, the Premier League attracts all sorts of interest, including thousands of fans from across the USA. It seems that one such man has adopted Brighton as his team and subsequently decided to film himself singing a song about Palace which will likely leave you with a puzzled expression.

I don’t quite know where to start, whether you look towards his reference of a previous relationship with a Palace fan, his dig at Croydon, (a place he’s almost certainly never visited) his mum sitting behind him looking painfully unimpressed throughout or his plea for some female attention given the fact that he remains “single as f***”, it’s an absolute mess from start to finish.
I have nothing against people from different countries gaining an interest in football and deciding to follow one side rather than the sport as a whole but if you are going to wade into the quagmire that exists around club rivalries, it’s probably wise not to make yourself look such a fool in the process.
The main factor in all of this, is that Brighton fans themselves have not and will not make any real attempt to defend the man featured in the video, such is the embarrassment of the whole thing. What would possess someone of his age to do such a thing? I honestly cannot and never will understand it.
Enjoy (if you can).
