Crystal Palace visit Watford this weekend for their FA Cup quarter-final game and Eagles fans will be hoping that their players are far more fired up for the occasion than they were in the loss to Brighton last week.
Palace were pretty poor from back to front and the fans will want a far better performance this week – if that wasn’t obvious enough, though, the infamous Holmesdale Fanatics have made a statement ahead of the clash, as follows:

The HF contribute heavily to Selhurst Park’s atmosphere and are surely the most impassioned of the Palace fans – they have shown their power both during and away from match days this campaign.
Which player with “no potential” has just been named Crystal Palace’s worst ever January signing? Find out in the video below…
Their unflappable support wills the team on until the final whistle and then, having boycotted the earlier games of the season after requests to create a ‘central singing section’ were initially denied, the club took huge strides to meet their demands.
Whether or not their message reaches the players, they will definitely make themselves heard on Saturday at Vicarage Road – here’s what the rest of the Palace faithful had to say in response…
I cringed. Love the sound they make, but seriously, they are fans not the owners. I can’t not see this but so wish I could! ?

HF are important but they’re too big for their boots. They disband when they don’t get what they want. Thank god the players don’t have their attitude.

They didn’t even turn up for the first few months of the season, so their “efforts” and asking for nothing less than 100% seems just a little bit hypocritical.

Bang on lads hopefully see you up there, lads need to put in 100% this time

Absolutely spot on. The players owe the fans big time. Coyp

Good post. I’m sure you lads and the rest of the palace travelling will get stuck in! Gutted I missed out on a ticket but have no doubt that the fans, as per, will do this club proud.
