I think you’re right there Stan. Mobiles and the internet are both a blessing and a curse. It’s becoming an effortless default option to sit around and browse social media, forums etc rather than ‘doing something less boring instead’. A good example is me doing this now! So many people on phones during the game when they should be interacting with actual people, being sociable, singing, chatting, getting involved in a bit banter! There was a classic the other day on Twitter when a bloke (not palace) waited for 5 seconds or so after his team scored, got his phone out of his jacket and then faked a spontaneous wild celebration whilst filming himself. Couldn’t make it up.

In terms of the spontaneity of support I do see where you are coming from but there’s a tendency to look at the good old days through rose tinted specs. The terraces were great, the surges, the jumping around, shuffling about and standing where you wanted, but I don’t remember too many quips and wise cracks, witty off the cuff songs and chants. In fact the uncovered Holmesdale was often cold, wet and miserable with a lot of time spent before and after games trying to avoid a punch up. I do remember a funny ‘did your mummy knit your gloves’ to ( I think) Lee Bowyer.

How d'you think I feel!

Although that said, the average age of our group that stand and sing at the back of block V in the Arthur is probably about 50!

Youngsters today eh.....

It works. It’s loud and the oldies where I sit even have a clap along to the songs now.

Agreed spread well across into Block D too today. When we get the first big top 6 win at Selhurst the atmosphere will be incredible.

Seemed to be trying harder to include the Arthur into songs.

I’m enjoying some of the newer songs, they seem to spread more with each week.

Not a fan of the overuse of the megaphone though but each to their own.

I'm pushing 70 but the way some of you speak on here is like a bunch of castrated OAP Mormons. They galvanized the support today, Roy came over and clapped the holmesdale, he knows, no other club would be singing 2-0 down at home, be proud

Proud to be a Palace fan as our support at home and away games is on another level compared to the opposition at nearly every game.
