Football fans are full of kind words for Alan Pardew as Crystal Palace throw away late 4-3 lead

Chin up, Pards...

What. A. Game.

Bottom club Swansea City establish a 3-1 lead against fellow strugglers Crystal Palace, only to toss it away and fall behind with minutes remaining.

Six minutes to go, 4-3 Palace. Surely the away side had done in enough to get the three points, right?


Not only did Alan Pardew’s side concede a Fernando Llorente equaliser in stoppage time, the Spaniard also scored a fifth for Swansea, snatching a much-needed win for Bob Bradley and sending Pards and his boys to a sixth straight defeat.

Within minutes of the full-time whistle at the Liberty, football fans were full of sympathetic words for the Palace boss.

Palace supporters were also quick to support their boss after such a valiant effort from his team.

Chin up, Alan. We’re sure you’ll have chance to put things right.
