Whilst i appreciate the extra atmospher i really cant see why they have thrown their dummies just because they are not allowed to move. Grow up. Why do they think they are they more important than the other season ticket holders.
Support Palace for what you can give the club not for what the club can give you.

Really sad..... the HF have been excellent for the club. Gave us an extra reason to be proud of the club and media edge over all the other not top six clubs. Much positive publicity centred on the great atmosphere at Selhurst; the HF have won us many friends. The club had a great opportunity here and should have supported, nurtured and worked with the HF, but instead, the reaction has been more negative and I really donít understand why..... surely the right thing to do is for the club to offer some help; the banners and displays cost a lot of money....... and time, given for nothing by devoted supporters who turn up, never stop singing and get the players going when 2-0 down and the players respond during and after on twitter etc ...the players love the atmosphere too. Ok, the HF stand and there could be a health and safety slap on the wrist, but safe standing will arrive. I do not get it. We should all regret this.

The club has supported the HF, especially when it came to ticket allocations for Wembley. That the club was even willing to ask other fans to consider relocating was a pretty big step, it caused a massive fuss at the time.

The HF can't seriously expect the club to kick other, long-term season ticket holders out from their seats.

 


Employee of the month is a good example of how someone can be both a winner and a loser at the same time.

The HF are just like any other group we've had over the years in reality, with the major difference being they gave us an atmosphere in an all seater stadium. In the old days it was easy. You all just congregated in a certain area and anyone could come and join in. All seaters split everyone up and destroyed the atmospheres at lots of clubs.
The HF have always manipulated their seats to try and get enough like minded people together to make a difference and by doing so they gave the rest of us that focal point. Whether anyone likes it or not you need a conductor, someone who can be arsed to take centre stage and bother to start things off. They do this and are a major part of our atmosphere and it will be interesting to see how the players react to the change in atmosphere next season. In this league you really need to maximise any perceived advantage you may think you have.
If it is because they couldn't move then it's baffling. Surely keeping your seats and trying next season should be the option especially if rail seating might be introduced soon. I do believe moving to the middle behind the goal would actually boost their influence and help spread the noise over the whole of the lower Holmesdale, but they've now given up their bargaining power. Strange.
The club do want what they give also as the offer did state that they are in favour of banners, flags and drums, so maybe a new mob might emerge. I really do hope so as I really don't want to go back to sporadic chants like everyone else does.

And Wembley proved what they could do. It was a no brainer to manipulate tickets for them.

Now that HF are gone,would anyone be up for starting a new ultras group in block b and try get as many people as possible involved. The club implied that they'd be in favour of something like this?
Anyone interested PM me

Each to their own but I won't miss them.
I haven't had much time for them since they went over to the tunnel area and started abusing the players after a heavy defeat.
They're no more important than any other Palace fan,why should they get preferential treatment.
Most of them will disappear if we ever get relegated anyway.

They're not that Ultra or Fanatic if they give up that easily. God knows what they would have done in the dark days of the mid-eighties.
