OUTSPOKEN broadcast journalist Adrian Durham has slammed Crystal Palace fans for their banner against Manchester City on Sunday. In his latest Daily Mail column, Durham has questioned fans up and down the country for a number of banners shown during the last round of matches in the Premier League. Those include ones by Newcastle United and West Ham fans towards managers Alan Pardew and Sam Allardyce. But the large design created by the Holmesdale Fanatics at the weekend, displaying the words 'You Got The Money, We Got The Soul' towards City has been lambasted by Durham. It's not the first time either the Peterborough United fan has upset the Selhurst Park natives, claiming that Palace were awarded too many penalties last season. He wrote: "That embarrassing effort at Selhurst Park. "Palace fans spent time and energy making a banner aimed at their Manchester City opponents on Sunday which declared: 'You Got The Money, We Got The Soul.' "I laughed out loud at this nonsense, thought up by someone who has no idea about - and didn't bother to research - the amount of incredible work in the community Manchester City Football Club's owners have done, and what a fantastic facility they are creating for locals to use in and around the Etihad Stadium. "The logic that says a club with money can't possibly have a soul is flawed everywhere you look – are you telling me Real Madrid have no soul? "The Man City fans who were on the away terrace at York's Bootham Crescent ground in December 1998 and saw their team lose 2-1 probably still go to the Etihad today. "They know about the soul of a football club. And everything is relative of course. "So when Palace offered to shovel a shedload more money than any other club into Bosman striker Glenn Murray's bank account to secure his services back in 2011, was that the Eagles losing their soul? "It seems with songs and banners some fans have lost their way in the Premier League this season."
