So, it’s just over a week to go until ‘the big one’. Not Liverpool, not Leeds, but yep, Crystal Palace. Our arch rivals.
It’s a puzzle to a lot of football supporters as to just why we ‘hate’ our East Croydon rivals, and why the feeling is very much mutual.
Thankfully, a Palace fan (with a bit too much time on his hands!) has created this lovely little video explaining a brief history of the rivalry. Give it a watch – you might even find it educational! We enjoyed it – just not the bit about getting beaten 5-0!!
