Crystal Palace Fans Accidentally Vandalised Their Own Bus

Congratulations, you played yourself

Crystal Palace were left with a big mess on their hands this weekend that was entirely of their own making.

Fans of the South London team vandalised a team bus they believed belonged to Middlesborough who they're currently battling with against relegation.

It was, in fact, their own team bus. Did nobody think to check before getting out the industrial silver graffiti? Apparently not.

The coach was parked at a hotel nearby Crystal Palace's Selhurst Park stadium and sprayed with the words 'Crystal Palace FC' in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Crystal Palace's assistant head groundsman, Dean Waters, tweeted saying:

"£40,000 worth of damage on our coach thinking it was the Boro coach. Nice one! #cpfc," Waters then changed his privacy settings, presumably following a slap on the wrists for airing their dirty laundry.

Most hilariously, the team still had to use the team to play against Middlesborough on Saturday afternoon - and they won.

That's not justice.
