Crystal Palace: Fans discuss former player David Tuttle

Crystal Palace: Fans discuss former player David Tuttle - Crystal Palace

A lot of Crystal Palace fans are discussing David Tuttle, after a fan posted on Twitter opening up a debate on the former player.

The defender played for the Eagles from 1996 to 1999, per Soccerbase, and even though he doesn’t get spoken about much today, he clearly left a lot of fond memories with the club as many fans of the South London side declared him a hero when discussing him.

Over the course of his 89 appearances, he managed to pop up with five goals, but the most noticeable highlight from his career was the fact that he was part of the famous squad that gained promotion in the 1996/97 campaign, via rednbluearmy.

In that season the club finished sixth and advanced to the play-offs. In the final, the winning goal by David Hopkin for Palace caused the commentator to say ‘Hopkin, looking to curl one’ and this line has become iconic in the Eagles’ history, via Crystal Palace.

This play-off final is clearly remembered well by fans as one called Tuttle a ‘promotion hero’.

Here is what Palace fans had to say following the tweet:
