A 2-0 win over Leicester City yesterday helped to give us a total of ten points out of the last twelve. After hearing the result I logged onto the BBS and saw there was a great debate about the booing of Ben Watson prior to him scoring our second goal from the penalty spot.
Booing our own players? Before they take a penalty for us? Even the often maligned Shaun Derry garnered support before stepping up to the spot at Sunderland in the play-offs three years ago.
And we can’t deny it happened. Plenty of Palace fans reported hearing it, along with ITV’s Championship highlights show. It’s little wonder why the young players we bring through head elsewhere when they get the opportunity.
