Someone managing Crystal Palace's Twitter account has some serious explaining to do.
The newly-promoted Premier League London club failed to hold their lead against Stoke City on Saturday and eventually succumbed to a 2-1 defeat following second half goals from Charlie Adam and Ryan Shawcross. Yet, the final result wasn’t what most Crystal Palace fans were concerned about.
Before their match at the Britannia Stadium, over 56,000 Palace fans on Twitter were welcomed with a message that appeared to be a clear cut and paste job from Stoke’s official account. You see, Palace’s shocking gaffe contained Stoke’s substitutes for the game as their own and a “Come on Stoke!” greeting.
Not your normal rallying cry to say the least.
The message was quickly deleted from Palace’s accunt but not before being picked up by fans across Twitter:

Sadly, If this is any indication of Crystal Palace’s 2013-14 campaign, the Eagles stand no chance in staying in the Premier League beyond this season.
