I can't remember the chant exactly but their were some unique words about their Russian loan signings. 95/96 was a strange season but we had some good entertainment.
OMG - I obviously recall their relegation but had forgotten the Russians! Nice reminder mate

We threw away so many points at home that season - Vale, Oldham, Stoke, Ipswich - that's 6 points just off the top of my head. There were probably others

There's a line in there that say one Palace fanzine decsribed Armstrong as having 'single-handedly relegated Palace.'

Certainly wasn't One More Point!! Come on Palace Echo & Eastern Eagles - own up, which of you wrote that??

Ha - thanks for the reminder. You were on fire with the puns, mate

I would love to re-read your analysis of the Cantona kung-fu kick again if you still have that article - would love to quote a couple of pieces in the OMP book. I've written the chapter and referenced Eastern Eagles' excellent repsonse to it all but would be nice to include some quotes if you're happy to allow that. I remember reading it and you captured the mood of the incident and aftermath correctly.

Timing of issues etc meant it was nearly a month before OMP came out and things had started to move on a bit. I did some comedy-related stuff/pictures but I didn't get too serious with it.

Great stuff. Good for you, mate.

All this 1861 stuff got me wondering whether to do another issue and suddenly turn the OMP life span from 10 years and instantly jump it to 27 years! Then again, I've always liked the even numbers - 10 years / 60 issues. I like even numbers, 27 years / 61 issues just doesn;t feel right.

Please remind, how many years (I think you started a year before OMP IIRC) and issues did you clock up?

Been a lot of fun researching this and going through the old issues. Happy to announce that, like Crystal Palace FC discovering it's actual birthday was 1861, the beer towers were born/invented Port Vale away 15 Oct 1995. Was quite shocked to see that Wags had written that. At that point we had no idea how famous the beer towers would become.

Issue 11 - Wags wrote how after our relegation, he asked a player if they'd be staying. "I want to, but the chairman's a w*nker." Out of respect to the player, Wags didn;t reveal the name. Fair enough.

25 years later I've been texting asking who it actually was. Enough time has passed for it not to be an issue. Dopey Wags now can't remember.

Imagine my joy when I was reading Issue 16 and, bold as brass, in another Wags article, the player's name and quote are stated. Can't believe I typed the issues out sometimes, given how much I've forgotten over the years.

Been a lot of WhatsApps and messages between a lot of us who knew him.

Really weird that this week of all weeks, I had written a number of stories that had involved him, then the bugger goes and dies before I get the book completed. Was looking forward to hearing that booming belly laugh when he read it.

Spud had been in a bad way for a while but I always thought he'd sort himself out and pull through,

He dug me out of hole by locating the hire car in Samsunspor after the police towed it away on that Intertoto adventure. Think I'd still be stuck in Turkey now if it wasn't for him. Ha ha.

The book is close to completion. For five years the working title has been:-

IS THAT THE PROGRAMME?

The question I'd get asked 10-20 times every time I ever sold the fanzine, usually when the programme sellers were 10 yards away and wearimng high vis jackets with PROGRAMMES printed on them.

That said, if anyone has better suggestions for a title for a book that covers fanzines in general; the three main 90s Palace fanzines (emphasis on OMP of course); Palace on the pitch in the 90s, then I'm 100% open to changing this.
