Eagles defender: Twitter rants show the fans care about Palace

CRYSTAL Palace defender Alex Wynter says that he has put a halt to his social media interaction for the time being, but admits that some fans do take things a bit far towards the players.
After Sunday's defeat to Brighton, a few supporters vented their frustration towards a few players and club officials, but Wynter knows deep down that the fans have a lot of passion and affection.
"I've come off Twitter, and I know you're are going to get the odd fan saying a few things, but it's because they probably care about the club," he told Advertiser Sport.
"It's not personal I don't think, it's just the pure love for the club and it's a family club too with a lot of love.
"Palace fans are great fans and I've been with the club since I was nine years old, so I know how good they are.
"Even if though we lost 3-0 against Brighton, the fans were still behind the team last Sunday."
Wynter is currently on loan down at Eastbourne Borough alongside Eagles team-mate Bayan Fenwick, who admits Twitter abuse doesn't help the players at the club but believes it's a case of shrugging it off and putting in 100 per cent again on a matchday.
"Twitter can have its downfalls but the fans are behind the team 24/7 and it can be a boost to the players," he said.
"But you do get the odd fan here and there giving it the bad mouth and it doesn't really help.
"Our players are big enough to not care about it – if they see it, they see it, if they don't, they don't - they'll just get on with it on a Saturday again."
