I thought the only game of ours that made the Big Match that season was our 1-0 win over Oldham.

orient v palace was on

So was the penultimate home game - Palace v Notts County. I have the Notts. County and Orient games on an old Betamax tape (with the goals from the Burnley game). There were all on the special DVD I circulated a few years ago.

stupalace 22-02-2009 12:32 PM

I made about 40/50 copies over the years - and I know that my copy of the Burnley goals (which I believe is the only copy which still exists) was used by Palace in the Centenary DVD.

alan cola 22-02-2009 12:44 PM

thats cool i will keep an eye out for one on e-bay for your one

James 22-02-2009 12:49 PM

I hope you won't find one there. I didn't sell any and I made it clear to everyone who received one that they were for personal use only and not re-sale.

Most people who received one made a (voluntary) contribution to the BBS, to help with running costs.

on todays game the Filbert street pitch had been covered by a bubble and was was described as perfect but it looked so poor now

Palace 3 Brighton 1 (and Hilaire.....!)
Palace 0 Villa 0 LC replay - Midweek Match or Sportnight can't remember

Palace 0 Fulham 1 - Ref blew for time too early, players came back on played in front of half empty Selhurst
West Ham 1 Palace 1 - Match of the Day (Elwiss goal disallowed for nothing)

Brighton 0 Palace 0 - Freezing Feb, only one of five matches on in whole of England

I had all these on tape, for some reason I have half of them now. :( I also had everything that was televised from the previous two seasons including the Wrexham goals and Palace 3 Swindon 3 when the Big Match cameras went into the Palace changing room. All bloody gone, luckily some of that reappeared on the Centenery DVD.

Chocky 22-02-2009 01:16 PM

Oh and I forgot we were on Sportsnight 78/79 winning the Five a Side tournament at Wembley, beat Chelsea 3-2 in the final (lost that tape as well :( )

alan cola 22-02-2009 01:53 PM

alan cola 22-02-2009 01:59 PM

Palace 0 Fulham 1 didn't remember the score but i was there and it was so wierd when they came back on i think it was a good 5 ninutes more

leicester1 22-02-2009 02:10 PM

We were quite proud of the old hot air balloon that saved a few games at Filbert Street.
Wonder if i was at the game mentioned,1978/79,off the top of my head,some dark days and low attendences at Leicester back then.

But soon to be turned round by Jock Wallace,a couple of experienced heads and a glut of youngsters.........i know.......:S:

I remember it well. I was in the Bar having a drink when someone told me that the players were coming out again.

Palace had been so much on top in the last 10 minutes of the game and looked likely to equalise, but never got going again during the 'extra time' - probably much to the Referee's relief.
