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.

Polak 10-08-2021 09:16 PM

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.

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!

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

As a commentator and presenter too.

How the f*ck did we end up with the likes of Lineker?

If Brian Moore had worked for the BBC he would have become a football national treasure.

Enjoyed that even though we lost - Ipswich had classy players in that side and we really missed Nicholas.

In one of the other games Bryan Robson spectacularly tipped a shot with his hand over the bar against Liverpool and obviously conceded a penalty - but he wasn't even booked.

He was and a very pleasant man. Had the good fortune to spend some time with him on the journey back from the Sunderland cup victory in 1976. I'd gate crashed the players' coach - Ray Bloye playing cards with Alan Whittle amongst others - all very friendly and saw Brian sitting on his own. Always had time for Palace - very friendly club which he compared with his own club, Gillingham - especially during the period when Big Mal was our manager as he was such an accessible person.

I'd been a big fan of his since his BBC days - their first football correspondent on the radio where he acquired the commentating skills which had seen him head hunted by ITV when it commenced broadcasting football. Asked him about the differences between commentating on matches for radio and television and he said that there wasn't much.

Meeting him was nearly as good as meeting Big Mal later in the journey.

How did you manage to gatecrash the team coach?? I had a delightful journey back on the train, with newly-installed air-conditioning, courtesy of the delightful Mackems :D

wrightchipvcfc 04-09-2021 06:09 PM

Forgot Steve Lovell played that season remember him scoring the winner away at Wrexham it was palaces first away win in 31 games not sure if that was league and cup the few palace fans that had traveled celebrated like we had won the champions league .

The team had the first coach on the train back to London - the same train that we enjoyed on the way up departed at 07.30 from King's Cross, first class dining facilities - pie, chips and peas, pie, chips and peas on the way back :D

We must have had an armed guard on our train ;)

jhc 04-09-2021 06:36 PM

Watching that again, you realise how much better the players are today, both in technical ability, workrate and fitness.
That 'top of the table' Ipswich side would probably be in the relegation places in the Premier league today:D
The standard of the game has improved dramatically.

Sainsbury’s building in the background……….if only we knew then……

Great kit by the way.

Fitness levels have dramatically improved but I'm not sure today's players would fare so well on those pitches.

Or with those tackles

Up The Junction 07-09-2021 09:00 PM

How did Mike Flanagan keep his place for nearly two seasons? 8 goals in 56 games and 3 of them in one game. A poor purchase by Venables especially when Swindlehurst was allowed to leave. 80-81 was such a depressing season.

Yeah, that tackle by McDermott on the WBA player. Horrendous, even in those days and yet, just a booking.

Yet just a few complaints from the West Brom players, even though it was really a career threatening challenge !

Was fantastic, the game, the interviews, all of it. What was particularly interesting for me was that we all hear how everyone lined up 442 in the day without much change. In this game CPFC lined up 4312. I'm not sure if it was to negate Robertson as Forest's chief supplier, but it meant Nico was on the right of the midfield 3 and supporting Doris throughout whilst Vince played centrally in the hole. Fascinating watch.

Just watched the 3-0 to Liverpool at Anfield. Liverpool were so good back in the day and it was interesting to hear Venables say that some of our players would have found it difficult at Anfield - we were such a young side!


Funny to see the dog on the pitch at St. James Park! :D

Absolutely. In some ways that game is a tougher watch knowing it's downhill from there. Second half of the season wasn't great and we all know what happened after that. Was good to see Jim Cannon saying what he learned from the NFFC win was that we could win the title. Oh Jim

Considering how bad a season we had, we were on the big match a lot. Although it feels quite sad watching it now as the team of the 80’s were gradually drifting away, no sansom, swindlehurst or burridge at this point, but I remember strangely enjoying that season, and I liked Clive Allen:eek: The enthusiasm of youth I suppose and that Adidas kit still gives me orgasms, especially the sky blue away one

The director of the Big Match was Bob Gardam - he was a mate of mine before he passed away
He said they always loved going to Palace when Big Mal and Venables were there as they were looked after very well
Also remember Brian Moore used to host a kids Christmas party at Palace quite regularly

I think Brian Moore did have a soft spot for us. We used to stand under the tv stand back then and I was always really proud to see him climbing up the ladder and knowing he was above us during a game, the voice of football for our generation

Hedgehog 05-10-2021 08:31 PM

I met Brian Moore in Eric Flight's sports shop in Bromley one time. He was there with Kieth Weller doing some sort of promotional thing. I think there was another player there also, put I'm not recalling who it was. We talked about Palace and Alan Birchenal for some reason... I guess as Weller was mates with him from Chelsea.

Both very friendly. Saw Brian a bit later walking away from the shop and he actually waved at us... which impressed me as we were just oiky teenagers at the time.

You are correct on both points. Definitely had Gillingham affiliations.

Polak 05-10-2021 09:03 PM

This Saturday at 10:30 is from 1st November 1980. The info on Virgin says its Aston Villa v Coventry but that's also the day we beat Moan Utd with a Perer Nicholas goal so worth a view.
Tuesday 12 October is from 29 March 1980 again against Moan Utd. Unfortunately we lost that one.
Wednesday 13 October is from 5 April 1980 against the weed. Might want to give that one a swerve.
Saturday 15 October is allegedly from 15 December 1979 but the match advertised is our last home game of the season v Liverpool. They have shown this previously with the erroneous date.

Which I think was a line taken from a Half Man, Half Biscuit song.

Back in mid 80s, a mate of mine was a big Gills fan and wrote a couple of articles for that fanzine. He had also just taken up amateur referring. Years later, I noticed he was the linesman in a Gills game broadcast live on Sky and was definitely favouring the Gills!

Just watched it. The one thing that stood out for me was that, even though it was only 18 months after the Burnley game, we were without Burridge, Sansom, Kember, Swindles, Hilaire & Murphy. I appreciate the latter two were watching from the stands.

I know you can’t argue about the decision because we won the game, but hard to believe Hilaire and Murphy being dropped.

And what with Fenwick at left back, Man U must have been bad that day :D

And Clive Allen

Presumably that was Ernie Whalley's last victory

Yes.

It only dawned on me the other day that he was our most successful manager out of 4 that season.

It was a very low bar.......

eltron 11-10-2021 06:28 PM

I wonder if his points per game record would have kept us up?

Conscious there was an impact effect - winning the 1st 2 games.

Palace v. the wankers today at Selhurst Park.


Good watch although we lost 0-2.

Cheers. Don't remember much about that game without watching it but I think we were just getting a bit tired towards the end of that season, weren't we?

AddoWolz 11-10-2021 10:34 PM

I think there’s a bit of confusion , 1st November 1980 v Man Utd we won the game 1-0 with the goal scored by Peter Nicholas

They're showing the match from 29 March 1980 tomorrow which we lost 2-0.

Indeed.

The season we were half decent, we lost 2-0.
The following season when we were absolute shite, we beat them 1-0.

Go figure :p

Palace all over, it’s how we roll :supergrin:

One thing which I think would be bloody marvellous would be if for some of the games the electronic advertising boards could be used to display all the old adverts around the ground in a sort of 30 second flash..... it would be great to see the likes of Marley homecare, Allders, Visionhire, Tarmac, Everard Ovens etc splashed around the ground.

Loved Brian Moore growing up. Watching the big match revisited I lost count of the times I heard him say "Oh my word what a goal save shot" etc."
Brings back some good memories watching our matches especially the Forest game when we won 1-0. Shame there is no footage of the 4-1 Ipswich game that took us to the top of the division.

Some big old punch ups on the terraces at those games.

How times have changed, Brian Moore disgusted at John Burridge getting booked for deliberately handling the ball outside the penalty area. A crazy decision he said, what is he supposed to do? Well these days it’s a straight red, no questions asked with no complaints from anyone. What would Brian have thought of that?? Because he kept going on about the yellow card ‘crazy decision’ during and after the game

A high proportion of the yellow cards 40 years ago would be red today

True, I think it was just Brian Moore’s disgust that I found amusing.

You forgot to mention that Brian also pointed out that the same thing happened in another match and the goalie wasn't booked.

Perhaps we need a thread to note all the differences between matches played over 40 years apart. First on my list would be passing back to the keeper ....
