WHy are we called the Eagles?

Ok i know its the bird on the emblem though why is the eagle on it and not a hawk, swallow, bluefinch or even better a kingfisher (which have our colours)? B]Answers on a postcard please.[/B] . Cheers

Incase this is another duplicate thread my apologies in advance, woke up with this curious question? I do have a good life too!

Well I can tell you we used to be called Glaziers or something before. As for why we are called Eagles, couldn't tell you but I am sure some smart alec on here will!

We were the Glaziers, but we changed when Malcolm Allisson took over as 'Allisson's Eagles' had alliteration. The name just caught on. At least I think that's the reason.

We changed our colours and our name to match a couple of European superpowers at the time i believe.

I could be wrong but it may well be Benfica who are the EAGLES and Allison changed it to copy them.

This is absolutely correct. Allison felt the clubs entire image needed freshening up so he changed our colours from claret and sky blue (worn in honer of Aston Villa whose board of directors founded the club and provided our first shirts) to the red and blue we know now. This was taken from Barcalona and it was a radical step at the time which was envied by other clubs that we (or Allison) had the courage to break with tradition.
The top team at the time in Europe was Benfica who are known as "The Eagles". Alison also pinched this. Our original name the Glaziers was because many of the players who played for the original "Crystal Palace" (which by the way has nothing to do with the club we support today) were in fact full time glaziers by trade that worked at the Crystal Palace.

My first post apologised if there was already a post on this subject so there was no need to be critical though if you want to go down that route your post should have read 'there has been so many threads on this subject' not 'they have' ok

I think we should go back to being called The Glaziers, it has a more up-market ring about it

There were discussions along those lines recently but Jordan decided it was too much of a pane to change back.

Crystal Palace FC. A Brief History.

Crystal Palace were formed in 1973 by an alcoholic. Shortly after taking over as manager, he erased the clubs past by changing the teams colours to red and blue and the nickname to The Eagles.

Crystal Palace celebrate their centenary year in 2073.
