Palace's not-so-eagle-eyed goons found a coach the night before the match, duly spraying it with the words ‘Crystal Palace FC’ in massive white letters – only to find out it was their own team’s mode of transport.
According to the Telegraph, Aitor Karanka’s squad flew down to London on Friday but borrowed Palace’s spare bus to get from the airport to their team hotel and then on to the stadium.
