Haven't seen the Palace v Notts County game for a long while.
What was so noticeable from watching The Big Match Revisited was the number of young kids in the crowd. So many more than we get at Selhurst these days. We're missing a trick somewhere!
Great game BTW!

I haven't seen it yet, but yes, if you can get the kids in young for 1 let's say, they are fans for life and it pays dividends in the future.

:D Sorry but I couldn't stop laughing when I saw that, can you imagine if that happened now:D

Palace Rebel 30-04-2009 05:20 PM

it doesn't matter how cheap the child ticket is, if an adult has to pay 30 as opposed to 4 you can see the issue.

Al From Bromley 30-04-2009 05:22 PM

Back in '78 an adult didn't pay much more than a quid - and the football was a lot more entertaining too.

I think it was a bit more than a quid for adults. Still it was better value. That was a great team we had then.

Was it hansen who said you never win anything with kids?

Well Palace won the Div 2 Championship that year with kids.

It the Notts County game, there were no less than 6 players in their full season with Palace.

A lot of those players were in the Palace FA Youth Cup winning team.

Most kids also got lifted over the turnstile as well in the Arthur Wait.

just caught up with it, forget that Stoke were in the running as well, I presume Brighton lost their final game against Newcastle, and we won our last 2. A Classic team from a classic era, no real weaknesses in that team either,and Jeery Murphy's stockings always around his ankles,the Holmesdale always seem s to look smaller on TV ,the Whitehorse looked bigger, and those pieces of 2 be 1 that used to surround the netting at the bottom of the goals.

That was excellent. Terrace surges, bog roll throwing, a slow rendition of "Super Palace from Selhurst", Brian Moore, John Burridge's strong north-east accent, and the smoke bomb at the Goldstone was also well funny.

Quality television. Still gutted no Orient highlights (John Jackson et al) next week though

Nelson Muntz 30-04-2009 07:03 PM

Jerry Murphy what a player.

Did I see Peter Nicholas bump into a young Neil Everitt towards the end?

I wonder what happened to that Eagle above the tunnel? I'd like that!

Noticed some kids in the Holmesdale had what looked like cardboard posters with the pictures of the players on. I want one of them too.

Brian Moore = Legend.

No. Brian Horton just hadn't noticed that we had a game in hand.

Brighton, Stoke and Sunderland's final matches were all away from home which they all won. We were also away at Orient on the final weekend and of course we won too. If any of them had lost, or Sunderland had even drawn, then our win at Orient would have been enough to guarantee promotion that afternoon.

For the record, Brighton won 3-1 at Newcastle. Sunderland won 2-1 at Wrexham (with a late winner that denied us securing promotion at Brisbane Road) and Stoke won 1-0 at Notts County.

If West Ham hadn't lost at already relegated Blackburn on the final weekend of the season, then they'd still have been in contention. In fact if they'd won that afternoon, they could have gone up instead of Stoke by winning their 2 games in hand at Cardiff and Millwall. As it turned out, they drew at Cardiff and lost at Millwall so it didn't matter although I'm sure the police were relieved that the final fixture at The Den turned out to be meaningless.

Better than that, I think I'm in with a pretty good chance of winning tickets to the European Cup Final.

Brady's goal was the best.

LOL - the trip to Munich was courtesy of David Dryer travel - no doubt the majority of Forest's fans did the trip by inter-rail

Talking off fans on the pitch, I've always wondered how we managed to get away without having to erect the really high perimeter fencing that seemed to be at almost every other ground.

The whole Goldstone ground was caged in horrifically around this time, when in comparison we had knee hight garden fences.

Likewise, I remeber that Arsenal and even West ham never had fencing yet Spurs, Charlton, and even Orient all did!

In later years at Palace we had low, railing like fences but thankfully nothing to high or obstructive.

Anyone know the reasoning behind to fence or not to fence?

good question, we'd never had any real problems with pitch invasion or missile throwing, so the board possibly felt it wasn't really needed,and maybe cost as well

Nor would I have thought had Charlton or Orient but they didnt manage to escape the cages

I think the decision must have been made for a lot of clubs by pressure from local authorities and police etc

Horrible mixture of emotions watching the post-match interview with Venables. He was making all the right noises, an experienced media operator even then (specially compared to the Sunderland manager, and Brian 'i've just had a stroke' Horton) but then he cracks that satanic grin and it sends fvcking shivers down the spine.

Great seeing one of the Notts County defenders sporting a classic combover as well. That all went down the plughole with Sky. They have blood, and hair, all over their hands.

ElwissAtMemphis 03-05-2009 12:54 PM

Connoisseurs of the classic 70's footballer comb-over should check out Ralph Coates playing for Orient on the other thread. Surely the finest example ever; as he ran down the wing, there was about a foot of straggly hair trailing behind him in his wake. It must have reached down to his shoulders at least when he was stationary.

Poor old Alan Whittle's barnet looks almost as unfortunate in that match. A sort of bouffant mullet that started on the top of his head due to his severely receding hairline.

art malice 03-05-2009 11:42 PM

Not quite a combover but Southampton's David Armstrong had one of the savagest spams ever and there was one game where it was pissing with rain and he went for a diving header and the imprint of the ball stayed on his head for the rest of the game.

I'm not sure it wasn't more to do with the local authority, who were responsible for issuing the safety certificate.

Amazingly, the new Wembley still has them, the owners having reinstalled those strange horizontal fences as previously used before the rebuild.

Bobby Dandruff 04-05-2009 08:58 AM

Ive got an old tape i recorded of that season big match Palace v Notts County and Orient v Palace plus our goal at Bristol Rovers and winner at home to Charlton plus i recorded via a timer our Burnley goals on the end of News at Ten and also Terry Venables interviewed by Ian St John the following day at Wembley reshowing the goals its become a treasured tape.

Was that Murphy, then he ran and stood on the fence at the Holmesdale? :D Don't think I've ever seen the late winner at Bristol Rovers.

I've got a Football Focus piece on Leicester v Palace with Des Lynham in flares up there, when Kember gets knocked out and the last minute equaliser with Palace fans going mental in the corner, and the goals at Sunderland. Both on shitty film that they used to use in those days when a game wasn't televised 'properly'. Are they on the DVD? I will have to find time to dig stuff out boxes and somehow post clips up. I know a lot of my earlier stuff went missing when I moved to Spain, very upsetting.

Re the comb-over slapheads, they always used to look about 50 to me, but I suppose they were just the same age as the baldies we see now, but growing their hair long and pulling it over the top aged them by 20 years.

art malice 04-05-2009 06:23 PM

With the comb-overs, did they think no one would notice? And did they think those four precious strands of thin hair scraped precariously across their spam would withstand 90 minutes on muddy pitches, in pissing conditions, with balls that weighed four stone and against opponents who wanted to rip your fvcking head off?

I wonder if it didn't affect Bobby Charlton's game as it goes. Was he too worried about his hair to really give it his all? After all, he only got 106 England caps - what a waste of talent

dagenham_dick 05-05-2009 09:11 AM

I did love brian moores commentry, especially when one shot went wide, "oh that was inches wide" yes Brain approx 100 inches!
I'll let him off as he probably had that bloody Stanchion in the way.

Ruskin Old Boy 07-05-2009 06:17 PM

Newcastle were even worse then than they are today; 3 down at half time to Brighton? :eek: Looking at the bottom of the table it's fascinating to see who was relegated that season - Blackburn, Millwall and Sheffield Utd.

A good mate of mine from up North reckons that Brighton's support for the 78/79 match was the biggest from a Southern side at St James's at that time. Not that I should really be giving them any credit I suppose. . .

Chobham Eagle 07-05-2009 10:56 PM

I wasn't at the Orient game as I was up in Durham at university, but I assume that at one point the Palace fans who were there thought we were up - until Sunderland scored that late goal?

Surprised to see yet another of our disappointing 80's signings, David Giles, playing for Wrexham in that match. I knew he'd played for Cardiff before we signed him from Swansea too so he obviously wasn't keen on venturing too far from Wales. Amazingly he won 12 Welsh caps too apparently, including a starring role and a goal in England's infamous 4-1 defeat at The Racecourse Ground in 1980.

But he turned out to be just like Alex Dyer. Looked excellent whenever he played against us and scored a beauty meaning that I was delighted when I heard that we'd signed him. Inevitably, he turned out to be utterly mediocre.

Exactly what I thought when I watched that, I too thought of Alex Dyer. They both ran us ragged whenever they played us (Keegan haired Giles skipping past Burridge for the cup winner for Swansea at Cardiff) but were both no better than Paul 'Cheesy' Mortimer when they came to us.

Eye-dee 05-08-2009 11:31 PM

Great game on tonight! Forest v Southampton League Cup Final, March 1979 at Wembley :eek:

The pitch was a mess, swept up snow on the sidelines, names from the past making me feel so old :(

Great game though which Forest won 3-2 after being 1-0 down.

Intersting to see how much Cloughie looked like Nigel Clough does now :D

Chocky 10-08-2009 12:15 PM

Why did they put that on again? It was on a few months ago during the corresponding weekend when it was played in March 30 years ago.

Just watched Palace 2 Notts C 0 (Apr 79!). Quality game!

Pitch a right mess, but they still played a good passing game, bog rolls flying, police in long black coats, no high vis jackets anywhere! Venables in his spyhole alongside Fenwick, industrial challenges from Kember, goals from Swindlehurst and Murphy, terracing on all 4 sides and a proper Whitehorse end.

Great times!

Can't say I particularly noticed, however there was a very prominent Sainsbury's perimiter board at the Holmesdale End :(

Yep, was at this one as well! I distinctly remember the frustration at not getting the second - we'd had real trouble scoring for a few games - and Notts County were unlucky not to level on more than one occasion! Most vivid memory of the Murphy goal was the bloke next to us in the Holmesdale losing his false teeth!

We all trotted off to the Orient game the following week - think we pretty much took over the ground - then off to Rush at the Hammersmith Odeon in the evening, cracking day!

Really enjoyed watching that game. And so funny to hear Horton say how Brighton would win the league if they win their last match. Ha! :D

It's on You Tube and in this forum somewhere (possibly earlier in this thread).

Mentioned this on another thread but it seems to have gone unnoticed.

If you want to see some really rare CPFC footage you should check out ITN Source. Where else will you see Palace get relegated at Norwich in 1972/73 or the fans at King's Cross after the Sunderland FA Cup quarter final in 1976? I'm not permitted to send links because of the 15 posts rule.

Next time I'll shout.

If you want to see some really rare CPFC footage you should check out ITN Source. Where else will you see Palace get relegated at Norwich in 1972/73 or the fans at King's Cross after the Sunderland FA Cup quarter final in 1976? I'm not permitted to send links because of the 15 posts rule.

Next time I'll shout.

could you pm me links please? (or post 11 quick posts in chit chat gold?)

Come on Dorking, what about a friendly repost for the benefit of the Palace population?

Wait till you see the 1976 King's Cross footage. The 1962 Arthur Rowe interview would be great if the preview had audio.

Cheers DE. Tried to rep you but the Rep Police would have it otherwise.

First time I've ever seen or heard the chairman speak, came across really well.

Arthur Waite truly a great chairman.Not that there is anything wrong with our current one. So nothing changes in 50 years "Byrne wanted to go" Wonder if they will have a similar interview with SP in a month or so.

What's really mental about that is that Arthur Wait is being interviewed in front of what became the Arthur Wait Stand - it's really great to have a momento like to bring the personality of the man to life.

Surely, if ever there should be a statue of a Palace man at Selhurst Park - Arthur should be at the top of the list?

It was interesting to listen to the tone of the interviewer (Kenneth Wolstenholme?) - asking Arthur 'Can you see any future for Palace this season?'.

At the ime of the interview (5th December 1962) Palace were just about bottom of Division Three - having won just three out of the previous 21 matches - the third being the game Arthur spoke about in the interview - 2-1 at home to Reading on December 1st 1962.

It goes to show exactly what the 'Palace Rollercoaster' is all about when you consider that after that interview - Palace went on to win 14 and draw 5 of the remaining 25 matches - basically promotion form. We came from bottom to finish 11th and although I knew nothing about it at the time (I was born on April 9th, 1963) Palace won 5 in a row in April - which would probably be as good as any finish to any season.

Arthur was a prophet!

Same here. Always had to imagine what he sounded like until now:lux:

Chocky 31-12-2012 01:45 PM

He looked like he thought the interviewer was a wanker. Same as the Sky lot today like that prick Geoff Shreeves.
