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.

This...

And I've met many devoted Palace fans over the years in many countries who started off as "tourists"

Hate it. Before every game, particularly against the top sides, Man City and Man Utd being worst, when the players are warming up all of them are all facing the others teams players phones out not even looking at our lot. Probably shouldnt but really winds me up

How are we to grow as a club if we turn away potential new fans?

Exactly, fans come from the unlikeliest of places. Years ago I bumped into a casual acquaintance at the game she was a single mum with 2 boys. She admitted no interest in football and had been dragged to the game by her sons.

I didn't see her for a few years when I did her sons had discovered girls so she was with her new partner she had become a true fan season ticket and all.

Today's tourists maybe next seasons fanatics we all have start somewhere.

There were a couple of thousand tourists in the away end. Seriously I hate that club, there should be some kind of ban on having a London accent and supporting Manchester United.

I suppose there is the argument that these "Tourists" are only at Selhurst Park because we are in the PL and they come to see the major teams.

Come the Championship next season they will be nowhere to be seen.

Me for starters and I introduced my cousin who has now been a season ticket holder for many years

At least we aren't talking about Mancs in the home end again.

Games against the likes of Man U will always sell out. I'd prefer it if the tickets went to genuine Palace fans rather than people who've got them through touts.

But anythings better than United fans getting them. Their supports that attend games seem to all be classless pond scum.

I'm in the main stand, block B, and didn't take to kindly to a bloke near me jumping up and celebrating their 3rd goal.
What would you have done?

Can you imagine parish acting like me when we score?

At least he claps, these lot were definitely manure fans!!

That they probably were so maybe the post shouldn't be about tourists but about opposing fans in Palace areas.

Sounds like the main reason they stayed silent the whole time...

I can understand your opinion about these football tourists, especially when those people are in the ground not to see Palace or when they are not really interested in real football but more in a kind of PL show.But you can be sure there are others (like me). People who are really interested in the club. I can never be like someone who lives nearby and supports the club at home and away games thatīs clear but we "support" Palace from abroad. And sometimes we make to Selhurst Park to see Palace and not the other team.
See you at the Liverpool match. ....and no, Iīm not there to see Klopp.
