I think we are mistaken if we think players are immersed in the wider culture of their club. Most probably don't even have any knowledge of the history the club they play for. It doesn't make them thick but it does give us some idea of their level of attachment to a club.

Which of our managers was it that wasn't aware of the rivalry with Brighton?

Has to be Holloway, although why would FdB know? I'm more worried when our managers seem to not be aware of any of our transfer targets.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Just now on Talksport he was asked who the Palace mascot is. He described it as a “very good question “ but failed to name Pete or Alice.
He then also couldn’t name Kayla and mentioned “the cheerleaders with the Pom-poms” but didn’t seem to know they are the Crystals!

Nice to know he takes an interest in the club that pays his wages!

Very strange that you judge someone's intelligence by whether they can name people who dress up to walk round the pitch and girls who wave pom poms about.

Yes that does seem to be a concern but the manager that you are referring to gets his own back by refusing to play people who are just dumped on him

I'd imagine he'd know everything about Spurs considering they're his football team, he just kicks a ball about for us.

Tbf, there isn't any reason he should know unless he'd been briefed by club officials at his induction. Maybe they don't bother to cover these aspects but I wonder what else they don't tell the players?

It’s the curse of being in the premier league. All the players care about is how much money they’re earning every week and unfortunately the club and the local community probably never cross most of their minds. He probably doesn’t even know we play at Selhurst Park.

And never comes into contact with them on a matchday (i've seen him out warming up when all of the mascots are on pitch and I've seen him run out between 2 lines of Crystals at teams take to the pitch) or in various PR or community work for the club?

If I was paid 60k a week i'm sure my employers would want me to take an interest in other aspects of the company especially ones that are good for PR.

I didn't get upset, just surprised and a little disappointed in him that he didn't know the names.

I think it's outrageous. For £60k a week you'd expect him to have at least a rudimentary understanding of falconry.
