'The day I danced on a tenner'

In our latest Fan of the Week feature, Advertiser Sport spoke to Palace fan Marc Osmond, who talks about Lionel Messi, David Hopkin and Glenn Murray, plus his prediction for tomorrow's game at Birmingham City.

How long have you been an Eagle?

Since I was five years old. I'm now 31, so more than 25 years so far. However, I nearly became a Tottenham or West Ham fan if my family had their way!

Do you watch Palace regularly? If so, where do you sit?

I took my son to the Burnley game that we won 4-3 in October and sat in the Arthur Wait Stand, but I've had a season ticket six times in the Lower Holmesdale.

Most memorable game?

There have been a few, but the one against Sheffield United in the play-off final when David Hopkin scored that cracker in the last minute. What a day that was.

Funniest moment supporting Palace?

It has to be walking to Selhurst Park when I was seven or eight years old and I saw a £10 note on the floor. However, instead of picking it up, I got excited and started dancing around, only for my uncle to come along and pick it up for himself! He probably used it for a pint or two afterwards.

Favourite current Palace player?

Glenn Murray. He is on fire at the moment, but even last season I could see he had that ability and I knew he would come good eventually.

All-time favourite Palace player?

There are a couple, but it has to be Attilio Lombardo. The excitement he brought to the club was out of this world.

If you could bring one player to Palace, who would it be?

It has to be Lionel Messi. He's the best player in the world by far, but if I had to pick a more realistic signing, I'd like to see Paddy McCourt brought in from Celtic.

Match prediction vs Birmingham on Saturday?

I think it will be a hard one, and I wonder if Darren Ambrose will be fit to play. I will go for a 1-0 win thanks to Mr Murray.

Where will Palace finish this season?

I hope we will still be up in with a shout of an automatic promotion place. We just need to get cover in certain positions in January as it's a long old season. Plus we're bound to get a few injuries soon and KG could be off to the African Cup of Nations tournament.
