What's their ground like?

Vicarage Road is a nice little stadium with three good stands and a new Elton John Stand built in December 2014.

Palace fans will be seated behind the goal in the North Stand, which is single-tiered. We'll probably be allocated half the stand which holds around 4,500. No pillars in the way and view and facilities are generally good.

What do they sing?

Who let the Horns Out?

Songs to sing back

Elton's rent boys, Elton's rent boys hello hello!

Who do they hate?

Luton Town
