Just catching up with the last couple of pages of the I need to start watching these. What day/time of the week is this on?

Seeing these comments is taking me back to my very earliest Palace memories. Well before I ever started actually going to games but remember that Nicholas 1-0 win V Man United, shortly before I got my first Palace scarf and bobble hat for my birthday.

I saw one of these last night at about 6pm, must have been ITV4.
They had Liverpool v Man City in front of a crowd of 55k at Anfield.

Bear in mind that's what it holds now almost double the size on 3 sides of the ground, it shows how much the terraces were packed in!

The Kop literally had no visible walkways and it was a solid mass of bodies!

It's Saturday at 10.30am on ITV4.
Should be able to pick up the 79-80 season on the ITV Hub.

They're starting on 1980/81 on Saturday. Oh dear. I can't remember whether our opening day defeat at Anfield was on MOTD or The Big Match.

If you sign up to the ITV Hub you can watch previous episodes on demand - all free just have to sit through a few commercials that you can't skip.

Thanks. Ah bollocks, they'll be showing that then. I remember that it was shown in the evening as opposed to Sunday afternoon but that was one of the years when The Big Match and MOTD swapped slots so The Big Match was in the evening.

The Big Match in the evening and MOTD the following afternoon never felt right!

Especially as MOTD was on at around 5pm which was definitely too late after growing up watching The Big Match at 2:30pm

Interesting. That always felt the right way for me.

I guess my first year watching (1980-81) was one of those years.

Absolutely not! Sunday lunch, Shaw Taylor's Police 5 ('keep 'em peeled') and then settling down to The Big Match was the natural order of things. After which it was outside with a football my mate from down the road to recreate those key moments...in full replica Admiral sash!

Also, turn over to see Brian Walden shrouded in darkness at the end of Weekend World, before the brilliant end credit music which at the time I thought he wrote

Great post.

Walden's scary, stern face and voice, that iconic music, mixed with the gravy and meat smell emanating from the kitchen, with the Grumbleweeds playing on the radio in the next room.

That was Mountain's Nantucket Sleighride.

Brilliant stuff and so little rock music on the telly in those days it was good to watch a current affairs programme!

Today at 5.55 on ITV4 it's the Division 3 match between Palace vs Charlton from November 1974.

wrightchipvcfc 27-08-2021 05:45 PM

Think Malcolm Allison in studio for this one

Ruskin Old Boy 27-08-2021 08:05 PM

He was indeed. Bright, cheerful and positive as usual.

Match was enjoyable though not as memorable to the titanic struggle against Tooting on the Wednesday afternoon earlier in the week.

Disappointing to look up the final table and see the Clowns won promotion in 3rd place.

Danny_Cheviot 30-08-2021 10:43 AM

Today at 11:15 ITV 4. 1974, Div3.

Palace v Charlton.
