Crystal Palace ... Est 1861 ?!?!


Recommended Posts

Were we playing football in friendlies etc before The Wednesday club was formed? Cos it sounds like this palace team weren't a proper team really, just some mates playing friendlies and training in the cricket off season. Spurious.

Do they have an honours board for it to be nailed upon.

It'll be the same sort of "link" as Chesterfield's claim - there was another team in the area back then so we'll claim that date even though we were obviously actually formed much later.

Wednesday is the Germanic name for Mercury's day of Constantine's weekly calendar. The  793

 

No idea what happened here

 

Anyway...

 

Wednesday being the Germanic name for Mercury's day means "Odin's Day". It would have been introduced to England in 793 when the Vikings settled.

 

Wednesday - established 793, Happy 1230th anniversary everyone.

 

 

 

Top notch logic from Palace there.

I think you’re off a few hundred years. The Angles and Saxons were Germanic and would have been using the then equivalent of “Odin’s Day” on their arrival into Britain.

Odin for the Norse, Woden to the Anglo-Saxons.

That's pretty much it.

 

Wikipedia says that Crystal Palace can "trace their origins" back to 1861. Well, by the same logic SWFC can "trace their origins" back to 1820, if not earlier. Admittedly not as a football club.......
