Not sure why they'd repeat that, awful night, not sure even Man Utd got any real pleasure from it. Horrible atmosphere, really nasty.

Not sure they'd realise the implication of the first match. Was dreadful, not helped by Keane being his usual self. Completely out of order.

"We revisit the gripping 1971 FA Cup third round tie between Crystal Palace and Chelsea at Selhurst Park. Some players opted for basketball trainers to survive the frozen pitch."

This was actually the first match I attended at Selhurst. I actually went as a Chelsea fan:frown:due to the influence of the older son of the lady who looked after me while my Mum was at work. Have memories of having to stand on the stairs where you came into the New Stand between there and the old Whitehorse. Only being 8 and short I couldn't see much more than the penalty area down that end and we left quite early. We lost something like 4 -2 but left before the last couple of goals. Found out about them in the Standard "stop press" which was then still issued on Saturday's as we walked home from Forest Hill.

Luckily the influence of my best friend and his elder brother took over and by time of the 1976 FA Cup game I was supporting Palace.:)

Wrong game this was the 2-2
I would guess you are confused with 1970 when we lost 4-1

I had almost forgotten this game. The black and white coverage made it feel even colder, but there seemed to be plenty of warmth off the pitch with ďaggroĒ between rival fans in the Whitehorse. Great atmosphere though and extended coverage does give a different perspective on our team at the time. Jacko was being watched by England boss Alf Ramsey but he didnít have his best game!

Thanks for this. It would have been the 4-1 game in 1970 as I know that Palace lost. Should have known this would have been an omen for many more games after becoming a Palace fan. Seeing as soon of the best days out I have had have been following Palace, especially to away games or the finals I hate to think of what I would have missed out on if I had stayed with Chelsea. At least that's a part of my childhood properly sorted out now.

Our dining room & lounge were knocked through to make one bigger room.

The TV faced the lounge part most of the time, except when Mum yelled 'Sunday dinner, turn the TV round'! from the kitchen. I was then tasked with turning the TV cabinet (on wheels) round so it faced the dining room part so we could watch The Big Match whilst eating dinner.

Sometimes Sunday dinner was ready a bit early so we had to watch the end of 'Out of Town' featuring Jack Hargreaves before it was Brian Moore's turn to guide us through Ian Evans' commanding performance for Palace vs Grimsby the previous afternoon...

Yes 2-0 up after 30 mins or so.. we were all over them.. then for the next hour they took us apart and they went 5-2 up.. only for us to batter them in the final 15 mins, and get one back, when in truth it should have been more.. It is a game that stands in my memory more than many and and though we lost Ii came out of the ground as a 10 year old very proud of the team.

Keep an eye out on BT Sport...the other night Big Match Revisited featured Palace v Charlton in Dec 1974. It was the main game with Malcolm Allison talking Brian Moore through the game at the end. After all these years supporting Palace, I didn’t know Paul Hinshelwood played as a No10 not just at right-back.

He started out as a centre forward, but for one reason or another it just didn’t work out. I’m pretty sure that’s where the ‘Doris’ tag come from. His conversion to right back proved to be inspired. Arguably our best ever in that position.

They all had dodgy perms in those days:D

Thought it was because some fans said he played like an old woman when he played up front, but I stand to be corrected on that!

Whatever, I’ll always regard him as being our best ever right back. A wonderful player & competitor.

Enjoyed watching the home FA Cup 3rd round 1970-71 game against Chelsea on BT Sport last night.
Was at the game and conditions underfoot were the worst I've ever seen. Most players wore baseball boots as so slippery. They still managed to put on a great spectacle for a massed vocal crowd though. Alan Birchenall particularly impressive against one of his old clubs. Bought back great memories of that team.

Never seen that one before. Caught it this morning. Nice goal to go ahead. Loved half-time draw being done by John Hollins and the ref as they walk off. Think they just wanted to get in the warm dressing room! See if they can get Van Dijk to do the draw at the weekend!

Pretty sure it’s a reference to Doris Day from his time in the Palace Youth - very similar hairsyles!

Paul Hinshelwood was also known as ‘Fish’ to fellow Palace players and staff due to his drinking exploits!

That was the match I picked out in another thread as the best atmosphere I'd experienced at a Palace game.

Friday 13th December on BT Sport 2:
3am-4am - 29/4/79 Palace v Notts County
4am-5am - 6/5/79 Orient v Palace not mentioned in the summary but it was shown back in the day so I assume that it will be again.
5am-6am - 13/5/79 Cup Final edition. Can't remember whether they had any clips of the Burnley match.

Good memories of that game, despite it being before I was born. The only time I've ever watched it was on the supporters coach to the Villa Park semi final. Slightly strange to show us losing to boost morale for the day.

I guess the coach organisers knew what we'd be getting at VIlla Park that day

Ooooh. I am interested in this. Where did this good quality vid come from? Is it a clip from the mythical Phillips tape? I remember reading that they videoed every game. Someone put together a terrifyingly ruthless search party and report back when it's found.

Thanks for the heads up.

I have seen most of our Big Match/Match of the Day games from the 70s, but for some reason, have never been able to see this one (even though I was at the game, and remember the cameras being there - we always remembered when the cameras were there back then!.

The goals are on the Centenary DVD, but it's a thing of beauty to see the game as was shown.

Things that stick out:
1. The pitch was terrible - and all they could talk about was how bad the pitch was on the previous Tuesday at Tooting & Mitcham
2. We didn't play very well.
3. No one did.
4. Except Derek Jeffries. He looked class.
5. A forward line of David Swindlehurst (9), Paul Hinshelwood (10), Peter Taylor (11) and Alan Whittle (8) - all forwards - none of them could be described as midfielders, attacking or otherwise
6. Although our goals were scored by our Left-Back (Jim Cannon) and 1 of our 2 midfielders (Nicky Chatterton)
7. Nicky Chatterton always seemed to score when the cameras were there.

5. A forward line of David Swindlehurst (9), Paul Hinshelwood (10), Peter Taylor (11) and Alan Whittle (8) - all forwards - none of them could be described as midfielders, attacking or otherwise
6. Although our goals were scored by our Left-Back (Jim Cannon) and 1 of our 2 midfielders (Nicky Chatterton)
7. Nicky Chatterton always seemed to score when the cameras were there.

How times have changed with one incident in the game where 2 Palace players go down injured after a clash of heads and we have possession with Whittle, instead of playing the ball out he continues with the play trying to set up a attack with a forward pass. Frank Lord our coach pushes one of the players who went down back up to get him to continue. :D

Thanks for flagging this up. Enjoyed watching that. Peter Taylor looked good. Loved Big Mal and the team clapping the "best fans in the country". Quite right too. Wonder why was Whittle in a different shirt (one badge in the middle of the shirt)?

Those blue nets! Quality.

That's probably why we had been relegated in two successive seasons :sob:

I was definitely at that match, but oddly I couldn't recall anything about it except the Charlton goal!

The only thing I could remember about this game was Big Mal & the players coming out and clapping the fans in appreciation of our support.

Big Mal was always beefing up the fans to keep us onside. I can remember Thames television doing a 30 min discussion program about Palace with Big Mal & fans. I think it was just after we were relegated from Division 2. At one point the presenter started to criticise our drop to the 3rd division and asked what do the fans think. Big Mal shouted him down saying something like I tell you what these fans are the best in the land, they are fantastic. Does anyone remember this? Love to watch it again.

There were only 3 London clubs in the top flight that season - Palace plus Spurs and Arsenal.

It's on the itv player, 24.000 crowd, muddy pitch, some memory jerking advertising boards, as well as seeing the Whitehorse with both sets of fans mingling together and a good win . It's a good watch .:p

You sure? this looks like the 79-80 season, the Whitehorse is still two tiers.

Wrong season
It was our first year back up, 79-80.

Hilaire is the stand out player

Yep my bad.

I thought this was our 2-3 defeat by Man City but that was 12 months later.

Also, it appears you couldn't say Joe corrigans name without the prefix 'big'...

Its amazing how we went from looking a decent top division team to a complete shambles in 1 year. Bloye destroyed the club.

Hazmat05 27-02-2021 12:07 PM

No diving, no screaming like a bitch from the slightest touch....great days!

Really noticeable how early Vince got the ball into the box. He was so silky.

He could cross the ball well with both feet, Wilf could learn a lot from watching him.

'different game' nowadays but very good point.
Benteke would've loved those.

Haha yes, trust them to focus on that [emoji16]

Brilliant watching Burridge again, such a good keeper.

Ruskin Old Boy 27-02-2021 12:58 PM

Was a bonus that Flanagan and Francis were out injured - played better with the promotion winning side. Difficult to believe what happened the next season.

Baffled Bob 2 27-02-2021 12:59 PM

Was Ian Smith, PM of racist Rhodesia really Ray Bloye's guest of honour? I do not remember that at all.

Sleeping Giant 27-02-2021 03:37 PM

I had no recollection at all of Barry Silkman having made it to top flight football albeit via Big Mal.
