This bit sums it up for me

This claim has been disputed by football historians and also rejected by the Football Association after a detailed review by the National Football Museum.

The FA told The Times in April 2022: “Amongst those historians, the broad consensus is that there is not a clear, substantial and continuous link from the Crystal Palace club founded in 1861 to that founded in 1905. Therefore, we will continue to recognise both the 1861 and 1905 foundation dates of the clubs named Crystal Palace.”

The sooner that 1861 comes off the current club's crest, the better as far as I am concerned.

100% agree the 1861 is nonsense

 


Responsibility Deficit Disorder is a medical condition. Symptoms include inability to be corrected when wrong, false sense of superiority, desire to share personal info no else cares about, general hubris. It's a medical issue rather than pure arrogance.
