‘Appaling, Typical’: Palace Fans Furious With BBC Highlights


Crystal Palace fans were appalled at the weekend after their 1-1 draw with Swansea City received very little coverage of Match of The Day and limited insight into the game.

BBC’s flagship programme stuck the Eagles on last, behind the 0-0 draw between Sunderland and Chelsea, whilst also excluding one of the best moments of the game when Yannick Bolasie struck the bar. On top of this, the analysis into Crystal Palace was limited to just one sentence by Gary Linekar, which infuriated passionate fans.

Whilst it may not have been the best game of the weekend, excluding key highlights is something that shouldn’t be acceptable and it’s fairly reasonable that the BBC have received these angry responses.
