IT IS perhaps no surprise after last night's heroics that Crystal Palace are today trending on Twitter. Plenty of football fans and pundits alike - both those with Palace connections and neutrals - are taking to social media to hail Tony Pulis' and his men, for one of the great Premier League comebacks. Others are taking great glee in winding up the Liverpool supporters, with reference to a certain night in Istanbul giving rise to a new Twitter hashtag. In 2005, Liverpool famously won the Champions League final against AC Milan on penalties, having come from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 in normal time. Nine years on, the roles were reversed and, in a small yet loud corner of South Norwood, the Merseysiders found themselves on the receiving end of a comeback. This has led to the natty Twitter #Crystanbul being applied to many tweets about last night's match. Alex Williamson wrote: "Must admit, I kinda wanted Liverpool to win the league, but it was so funny watching them cry last night #Crystanbul." Daniel Addy tweeted: "Whoever created the #Crystanbul hashtag won Twitter. Take a bow, son." Summing up the euphoric feeling among Palace fans, Gary Dean wrote: "The atmosphere at Selhurst tonight was absolutely unreal. Last 10 mins was deafening. Proud to be #cpfc #Crystanbul." And even Eagles co-chairman Steve Parish (@CEO4TAG) got in on the act, tweeting: "Why are we trending on twitter with 175k tweets, oh yeah! I remember #Crystanbul."
