Crystal Palace offered little resistance to Tottenham in the first game at the north London outfit’s new stadium on Wednesday night, with the hosts dominating the game and the ball. It was clear that the visitors were crying out for someone to get them going on the pitch – unfortunately, though, that man was sat in the crowd.
Mile Jedinak established himself as a legend and one of Palace’s best ever captains between 2011 and 2016 – when he switched to Aston Villa – and he was in attendance for the Eagles’ trip across the capital for the midweek clash.
The Aussie, known for his fighting spirit, tough tackling and that beard, was spotted in the away end by another fan, a welcome sight amongst the Selhurst Park faithful.
Which player with “no potential” has just been named Crystal Palace’s worst ever January signing? Find out in the video below…
At 34, the enforcer’s career is surely coming to an end soon, although that didn’t stop some fans on Twitter from dreaming of his return to the pitch at SE25, while another had a different role in mind. You can check out the best of the reaction below…

Fair play for building up those Parish points, not easy when you play Saturday football yourself
