Sick of it, and last night it was at its worst!

Many around me (block y, near the front/HF) had sold their season tickets back to the club as i know some of them travel far and wide. The club obviously sold them on, which is fair enough.

My area is normally buzzing, but at least 20 people just sat there during the first goal, same for the second.

Selhurst is losing its soul with these tourists or whoever they were. I am sure some of them were ManUre fans but after a had a quiet word with the guys in front of me, they knew not to celebrate if they scored, which they didn't TBF.

Now Selhurst was rocking last night, for sure. Can you imagine how rocking it would be if these lot joined in!
I have no problem with Tourists if they join in and get involved, but when they just sit there with no emotion at all, thats not watching palace in my view.
I am also a tad annoyed that they always come down to the front for constant selfies and have no regard for the people that pay to watch the match from there. The stewards are quick to tell me to not obstruct the aisle, but let two guys stand in the aisle in front of me for twenty minutes before they asked them to move.

And the signs outside the Arthur on the exit doors, telling people which way the train stations were, blimey! They were up just for the tourists!

Give me 18k real palace fans every week please.
I am waiting for a kid now to be holding up a "[away player], can i have your shirt please"!! Then i will lose my sh*t.

Thanks for listening, rant over.

The tourists are additional fans, if they weren't there then the seats would be empty. All the great clubs have them, I've been to Camp Nou and Bernabeu. I think Selhurst Park is third on the list of great stadiums to visit.

At least we don't have away fans with signs asking for player shirts.

 


It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses.

Have you told Steve Parish that he isn't a real Palace fan as he doesn't show enough emotion during a game?

Seriously what’s the issue, so called tourists when in the Uk come to see a PL game. Last night there was a Spanish guy from Barcelona with his Barce scarf on having is picture taken and enjoying himself in LH, what a great game (apart from the result for him to see) a fantastic advert for Palace.

Getting the train down from Victoria on match days there are always groups of different nationalities heading to a match, my mate even took a group of French guys met onthe train to the Holmesdale Pub for a few beers before a game and they loved it.

Relax enjoy the game how you want to and let our visitors enjoy it their way.

I'd rather the club sold twenty seats and that you stay away if it bothers you that much. At least we'd be 19 seats up on the deal and without the whining.

There was one last night, a Palace fan with a sign asking for de Gea's gloves. Albeit the kid looked about 12 but still...

I take it the bloke who threw the ball back at Ashley Young's head really hard wasn't a tourist. That was quite impressive. Shame the diving cheat caught it. The later one in the 2nd half at 2-0 when their RB wanted the ball should've thrown it into the HF.

When Pogba walked off he gave his shirt to a bloke in the Main Stand who had presumably come down to the front begging for it.

And by bloke, I mean at least 20 years old.

Disgrace.

I'd have torn it or torched it with a lighter in front of him. Would probably be all over social media for it.
