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!

Sorry I was at work:confused:

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

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.

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.

Happy Days

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.
