If the HF have collectively decided that isn't their opinion, that says more about them.

Together our spirit is unbreakable!

I know they did and I don’t understand why. The majority in that case are setting a dangerous precedent for players.

Take the piss, disrespect us, and we’ll still love you.

There's only one dangerous precedent being set here.
Picking and choosing who to cheer.
Picking and choosing who "deserves" a song.
Collectively.

Very divisive.

No one knows what happened between Wilf and the owners behind closed doors but I wouldn't be at all surprised if he has good reason to feel let down by the club on a number of accounts.

At the end of the day he put it behind him pretty quickly, was in the match day squad 2 days later, came off the bench and gave it his all against a team that he reportedly wanted to join - there are plenty of examples of footballers that have not shown that level of integrity.

The HF are not representative of our wider fan base - they are a couple of hundred self proclaimed 'ultras' with an incredibly self serving ideology. Let's not forget they walked out on the club last year. The longest standing of them (and there are very few) have been palace fans for less than 15 years.

I think this is a joke but just in case it isn't.

1) We would never have got promoted without him

2) We would have been relegated a long time ago without him.

3) You have absolutely no idea what has been promised to him behind closed doors in terms of transfer agreements but I highly doubt he signed that contract extension last summer under the pretence that he would not be allowed to leave the club for anything less than £100m.

He's bigger than our club. People should deal with that.

This is spot on.

There was a clear attempt to prevent the chants for Wilf being heard IMO even though it was also clear that the rest of the fans wanted to show support for him. If it doesn’t fit on with what the HF want them it doesn’t happen. And they are the only ones allowed a drum to they can drown it out if they want.

He’s done more for the club than many players have and for longer than most others would have done. We don’t know what was promised either. Needs supporting til he goes and appreciating when he has gone.

He’s never downed tools and walked out on the club like the HF did last season.

A lot comes down to the club not bringing in anyone as an understudy or replacement even now and we are just so over reliant on one guy. PSG can hold up boards saying go home to a player as they have loads of other match winners we just have Zaha still. It would be crazy to alienate our one decent chance of survival even if you do feel really aggrieved at him.

Meh, people who hate HF will never let it go. This has nothing to do with the HF, I’m certain not everyone who thinks Wilf is a snake is HF, but apparently it’s all their fault.

Oh well. Hopefully Wilf can forgive the club who pay him £130k a week, start to show us a bit more respect and we can all go back to singing “he’s just to good for you” until January.

We should have a bit more pride about ourselves as supporters and a club. No player is bigger than the club. PSG had it right.

As far as I'm concerned I'm happy to cheer anybody who puts on the Red & Blue and gives 100% for the cause, so right from the start on Saturday I was happy to cheer Wilf and sing his name. We are not party to anything that has gone on between the club and the player, and as has been proven too many times you cannot believe anything that comes out of the press, whether in print, on the internet or on the TV, so we will never know, which is how it should be, that is private between the club and the player.

Throwing your toys out of the pram and sulking because you don't get what you think you want is not the way forward, you have to get on with life and make the best of what you get, Wilf knows he has to carry on playing to the best of his ability to get the move he wants. He is not a child!

not sure if this is a Deje Vu or just me being unsure but:

The HF didn't support Zaha because he wanted something, didn't get what he feels he was promised and then tried to force the clubs hand to get what he wanted?

I'm pretty sure I've seen this somewhere before.

But you are 100% right, doing that does show a level of disrespect to the club and fans.

I suppose those having faced those issues before could probably understand a little of how Zaha was thinking through things. Though I can't imagine there's many people that would have been in that position before.

This has nothing to do with the HF from my point of view?

Not sure why everyone keeps mentioning them. In my opinion, Wilf is a disrespectful rat and I can't understand the undying support for him, that's all

Well it does as the discussion is how the hf apparently did not join in and indeed tried to drown out Wilf cheering.

Thought the discussion was about how we treat Wilf after the way he's behaved. I've given my opinion, not the HF's. Are you seriously suggesting that the only people who didn't cheer for Zaha on Saturday are the HF??

Can anyone not in the HF confirm?

He's bigger than our club. People should deal with that.
His footballing ability needs to be nurtured and shared on a larger stage / with better players than we can provide - sure - but he is not bigger than the club. No player is bigger than the club. Incredulous to suggest otherwise.

Of course none of us know the entire picture and it is entirely possible that both sides feel entirely justified in their stance. Wilf may feel the board have been unreasonable and the board may feel that their asset was not going to be prised away by trying to have his price devalued.

Where, I think, Wilf's frustration should be is that no club befitting of his talents saw fit to part with a (justified) price in the region of £80m. That is the same fee that Harry F****** Maguire went for FFS!
