Crystal Palace: Fans rave over Ben Watson following discussion on Twitter - Crystal Palace

A lot of Crystal Palace fans are praising former Palace midfielder Ben Watson, dubbed the ‘Peckham Beckham’ by one Eagles supporter, after a fan asked about the player on Twitter.

The central midfielder made 181 appearances for the South London side spanning across six seasons from 2003 to 2009 in which me managed to score 20 goals and provide 16 assists, as per Transfermarkt. He came from the club’s academy and made his professional debut at the age of just 17, so it is easy to see why the player has left fond memories at Selhurst Park.

Was Watson a hero or zero in your eyes?

Many Palace fans believe the player was a great footballer at the club and some wish they could have kept hold of the Englishman for longer, but in 2009 he moved to Wigan for £1.89m and continued to have a great career, including his part in an FA Cup final upset as the Latics beat Manchester City to lift the trophy in 2013, via BBC Sport. He wasn’t just a part of it, however; he came up with the decisive moment as his stoppage time header won the cup for Roberto Martinez’s side.

Here is what these Palace fans had to say following the post about Watson:
