The timing of this was somewhat ironic, coming just a week or so after the powers that be had decided to kick little old Palace firmly in the gonads and welcome Liverpool back into the European fold. 18 months previously we had travelled up there in hope, only to witness the infamous 9-0 mauling. A lot of water had passed under the bridge since then of course, we had won our previous two games against them so this time around there was more optimism that we could hand their faltering title defence a potentially fatal blow.

It wasn't to be as we succumbed to a comfortable 3-0 defeat, we would have to wait until the following season to taste victory at Anfield. If memory serves though, this was the game in which Eddie McGoldrick played as a sweeper. This was certainly a bold move from Coppell, going with an untried formation and utilising a player in the pivotal position who as far as we knew had never played there in his life. As it turned out McGoldrick played well and he famously drew particular attention from the notoriously dour Allan Green on the live radio commentary, who repeatedly broke off from commenting on the game to marvel at McGoldrick's skill and bravery. It took something to draw praise from that miserable bugger so well done Eddie. The game culminated in a late McGoldrick own goal, this brought further howls of sympathy from Green.

In fact I believe the entire line up that night was relatively experimental, I think Southgate started and I have a recollection that Collymore came off the bench...maybe this was the cameo appearance that sewed the seed for his big money move to Anfield a few years later!
That was his debut, right?

That was also the night of the 40 minute long ‘Stevie Coppell’s Red n Blue Army’ in the 2nd half, no?

Not the best game to suddenly have an injury crisis after a pretty much stable side all season. Two kids in Osborn and Southgate making their first starts; no Young, Thorn, Gray or Bright.

Was a disappointing night being their as Liverpool’s class clearly shone through, but what remains with me to this day was the rendition of ‘Stevie Coppell’s red and blue army’ that went on and on and on. Not sure how long into the second half we started it, but it went on for ages and turned into a mantra that felt like for me, a celebration of the club’s most successful season even if it ended on a sour note through no fault of our own. Can’t recall us ever sustaining a chant like that before for as long as that, and was almost like a precursor to the HF 15 years early.

From memory, both Southgate and Osborn made a more than decent account for themselves . McGoldrick was imperious in his sweeper role, so gutted for him to score through his own net.

HF came along a lot later than 2005, was around 2011 they really became noticed I would say.

Oh I always thought they were founded in 2005. I’m guessing you mean the incessant chanting didn’t begin for another 6 years? Moved to Scotland in 2003 so not sure about the timings of the group.

In 2005 they would have all probably been about 12.

Quite correct about McGoldrick, Southgate & (my favourite commentator, cos I'm a miserable bugger too) Mr. Green

Generally not a fan on Alan Green, but I was that night. As well as lauding Eddie, he also commented frequently on the noise the Palace fans were making.

Similar recollection of the game mid week radio commentary. There was no chance of getting to Liverpool after work. No chance of arranging a meeting with overnight stay in those days either.
The team was suffering with injuries and the season was coming to an end. Yet a brave performance great away support. A total surprise with Eddie playing sweeper even more so how good he was.
A long way in a short time from the 9 0. With so much packed into it. One of those strange games a defeat even a heavy defeat at 3 0 but a feeling of pride in the team despite it.

Made the long journey home barely endurable.

On another point, are Liverpool the only teams to have scored (or failed to score) the full range of goals in a game against us from 0 to 7? Must be due an 8-goal thrashing soon

I took my scouse girlfriend (now my wife) to this match. The only other matches she has been to are the 9-0 and the 0-0 with Everton earlier in this season, so never seen us score.

I was convinced that Barnes' goal was offside and you can see me looking across to the linesman on the highlights. Unfortunately it wasn't.

We actually played really well, and Eddie had a blinder at sweeper. Liverpool were just very, very good.

Support was amazing though, and as mentioned above the Stevie Coppell's Red 'n' Blue Army chant was possibly the longest and loudest I'd heard before or since. Pretty much the whole of the second half if I remember correctly, which I probably don't.

All I remember from the season review highlights was after one of the goals the commentator says something like "And Martyn didn't have an Earthling!" Whatever that means?!

The Rush goal.I think.

Probably just beats the away leg of the Playoff Final at Blackburn in '89. We sang for about an hour before kick-off, but then were too knackered (or uninspired by the performance) to provide much support once the match started.

"Didn't have" or "hasn't got an earthly" (not earthling) used to be a fairly common phrase but you don't hear it so much these days. Basically means that no-one on the planet would stand a chance, e.g. of saving that shot.

By the way, in case any of you pop pickers out there are wondering (you're probably not), in what must have been one of the most boring chart weeks on record there were no new entries into the top ten for week ending 20 April. No song within that top ten moved by more than three places, there was just a minor reshuffling of the pack. Chesney Hawkes and James still stuck at #s 1 and 2 respectively. So no update this week and no insights into my own musical biases.

Yup, exactly how I remember it. They were very complimentary about Eddie and the fans that night and saying what an injustice it was that Eddie got credited with an own goal - which incidentally I think came from pressure by future Palace hero Ray Houghton

So no update this week and no insights into my own musical biases.
