Palace boss disappointed with fans using smoke bombs
CRYSTAL Palace manager Ian Holloway admits he loves it when the Eagles fans sing 'CPFC' at home and away games, but has revealed his disappointment with the use of smoke bombs by a small minority in last Friday's game at Watford.
The 49-year-old told Advertiser Sport that on the back of two Chelsea fans sentenced to one month in prison and banned from Stamford Bridge for ten years after letting smoke bombs off at Swansea City recently, he says it's vital the Palace fans just carrying on singing and avoid any harm to themselves and others.
"We don't need any of that, we just need the Palace fans to keep supporting their team because it's fantastic and they really help the lads," he told Advertiser Sport.
"That's silly nonsense because that could harm someone – there's no need for it.
