Starting to feel old.........
Our real nickname is the Glaziers but it was changed to the Eagles by Big Mal in the early 70's to add some "Glam" me thinks.

When big Mal took charge at the Palace he did indeed want to add more glamour.
He changed our nickname to that of Benfica and our colours to that of Barcelona as he wanted Palace to be a combination of these two glamorous clubs.
