For the Villa game on Sunday I decided to don my old Palace retro shirt - a copy of the one we wore in the late 60s - claret with thin light blue stripes ( see attachment).

I was surprised that a number of Palace fans thought I was a Villa supporter. To be fair none were aggressive. One woman at Selhurst station after the match looked at me and said "I bet your fed up with that result". I had to point to the words Crystal Palace that appear on the shirt.

In my mind this strip doesn't equate to any recent Villa strip, and the shirt I was wearing is a fairly commonly seen on Palace supporters.

I guess I just have to accept that the days of claret and blue being traditional Palace colours have long sine gone.

Pete, here's a rosette you can pin to the front of that shirt- my Dad bought this for me on the way to a match in around, I would guess, 1966 or 67.

Excellent. My rosettes have long since disappeared along with my rattle.

For anyone interested who hasn't looked at Villa's fans' forum (and has a better way of using their time than I have), here are some of their views:

Too many injuries - our first-choice XI would have won.

The players had been on the lash all week.

I couldn't care less - it was a meaningless game.

Manchester City wouldn't have allowed themselves to lose 5-0 if they'd had a meaningless game.

It was embarrassing.

Could have turned out differently if the ref had given a penalty for handball by Andersen.

Palace are a good side.

I hope their team gets dismantled before they get even better.

I think we should go for Eze.

We should go for Olise.

We need a big summer clear-out.


(At least there wasn't any of the indignation and sense of entitlement that other top teams' fans show when they lose to Crystal f****** Palace.)

This has been a familiar tail from the fan's of teams we have beaten on our end of season run. I have mentioned before that apart from the second half against Liverpool we have been outplaying the opposition and in many games ( Villa included ) we could have won by more goals.
