Crystal Palace Comics

In life we are constantly changing our habits, in the somewhat unrealistic hope of honing our daily routine into one of perfection. One thing we have no control over is the football club we support. It is an affinity destined to last a lifetime, one with which there will be highs and lows in equal measures.

Over the years at SE25, Palace fans would describe what they have experienced as a roller coaster ride or a soap opera. From near extinction and the club facing liquidation in 2010, to the Premier League in 2013, it's a story that would create enough drama for a Hollywood script.

There never seems to be a dull moment both on and off the Selhurst Park pitch. If it’s not competing in relegation six pointers, it's nerve wracking and nail biting Play off finals. Throwing into the mix a flamboyant chairman and club legends coming to our aid in our hour of need only to desert us, when for the first time in what seemed an eternity, the clubs future both on and off the field, seemed favourable.

I feel proud to be a part of supporting this great football club. Sure, other football fans will tell you that they have had an emotional journey following their team just like us, but we all know there can never be anything quite like following 'South London's' number one’ and we wouldn't have it any other way.
The website I have created is intended as a tongue-in-cheek look at events at our club and and are merley my own peronal views and opinions. It is important to remain light hearted during the lows and I guess having this outlook is what somehow keeps us all relatively sane.

The article for The Eagles Beak is by Phil Morgan (@pnm1979) who is the brains behind the new site at Crystal Palace Comics
