View from the Opposition – Crystal Palace 20 November 2011

A bit about you:

Name: Chris Waters

Current home town:  Crystal Palace

Birthplace: Surrey

How long have you supported your team? Long enough!

Overview of your club:

Favourite thing about your home ground: The fact it is not an identikit soulless new stadium

Favourite match played by your team & why: So many to choose from! Obviously the play-off final vs West Ham is a highlight, but in a way the away game against Stockport where we won 1-0 with just a couple of minutes to go to secure an unlikely escape from relegation out of the Championship in 2001 sticks in the mind

Favourite player of all time who played for your club: Matt Jansen – turned down Man Utd for us, brilliant skills, and a true gentleman of the game

About our forthcoming match against you:

Your favourite current player in your squad and why? Wilfried Zaha – he’s really come on this season under Dougie Freedman – he can produce magic out of nothing, and score a cracking goal too

Overview of your club:

Favourite thing about your home ground: It’s still a real slightly rickety football stadium with history

About our forthcoming match against you:
