Crystal Palace announced on Thursday that the club’s fixture with Watford has been postponed.
And, as to be expected, a number of Eagles fans were quick to give their thoughts to the news on social media.
Patrick Vieira’s side were set to travel to Vicarage Road on Saturday, looking to extend their two-match unbeaten run after picking up four points against Everton and Southampton.

Further details on when the match will be re-scheduled will be shared at the earliest opportunity, the club confirmed, with Palace’s next game set for Boxing Day against Tottenham, who have also had numerous games postponed in recent weeks.
Palace fans react
Palace posted the confirmation on their official Twitter page. This is what these Eagles supporters had to say in reply, with one labelling it as ‘wild’, while others worried about the disadvantage of fixtures piling up in the future.
“Here we go”
“Should be a forfeit but oh well January is going to be insane”
“Gutted but not surprised”
“mad how we’re being disadvantaged for something that we didn’t even do”
“Thank the lord. Might have a chance of getting a ticket for the next one”
