I think I have my weeks mixed up as I went to this game with my Dad. I don't recall it being so soon after the QPR game, and I don't remember it being right before the thumping at Arsenal, when my parents were definitely Away as I remember watching Grandstand and seeing Arsenal keep scoring.

Dad and I went to the Brighton game as a bit of a last minute thing, dropping Mum off at her friend Becky's who lived in Brighton. We got there a bit late and ended up in the Brighton end for the first half, I didn't really know about the rivalry at 6 years old so kept cheering Nigel Martyn whose goal we were behind. At half time Dad spoke to a copper at the front of the stand who escorted us around the perimeter of the pitch to the Away section.

Other things I remember, was myself and a couple of other younger kids couldn't really see so were sort of sat pitch side of the hoardings rather than in the terrace itself, and apart from how bloody cold it was, I remember sitting there and the grass was starting to frost over it was that cold.

Couldn't tell you one thing that happened in the game, I just know Wright and Bright scored in Extra Time.

This was a Monday night game so early finish at work and quick dash down to the south coast, I cadged a lift in my mate's dad's car. We turned up in good numbers, helping to swell the gate to a bumper 10,000 or so - more pennies in the coffers for our badly-off so-called rivals and the locals would have been enticed out at the prospect of giant-killing derring-do.

Rather embarrassingly the game went into extra time but there was a satisfying denouement with the old double act of Wright and Bright firing us to a 2-0 win. Some antics from Palace fans on the pitch after the goals if I recall, rubbing the locals' noses in it to good effect.

The Gulf War was drawing towards a conclusion at this point and I remember switching on the TV when back home from the match to watch the updates. There was a strange fascination in watching the allied forces' heavy artillery arcing across the night sky.
& the day of the Victoria Train Station bombing.

Well remembered sir, I had a feeling there was a reason why I ended up cadging a lift down but couldn't put my finger on it. Of course the attack at Victoria had buggered up all the trains.

Poor David Corner, his name stuck in my head as a Sunderland defender with the same name had scored an own goal in the 1985 Milk Cup Final against Norwich.

The mention of the frost covered pitch also brought back some memories, it really was a freezing night

"Mark Bright outpaces the Brighton defence"

Definitely looks like a flat out foot race there.

Shows how much I know...although Wikipedia tells me that it was his error that led to the deflected goal so I was on the right lines!

We got the car down also. Remember watching from right at the back of the away terrace. The times I'd been there and seen us miserably beaten year after year made it a satisfying victory even if it took us quite a while to get there. My abiding memory is the mini pitch invasion from jubilant Palace fans behind the goal when Wright scored. Really rubbed their noses in it.

Shows how much the memory fades over the years too, when I think of this game I always imagine us in our Home Kit, yet those pictures above in black and white clearly show we played in the All Red kit, but I don't ever remember us playing in that kit.

Took Two Seat down for his first taste of the A23 Derby. IIRC it was a poor game with few chances until extra time.

At least they got to use their Wembley hotel reservations that year.

I forgot to do the top ten new entries for week ending 16 February 1991. Although in truth no-one will care, both tracks have long since faded into the mists of time.

Get Here by Oleta Adams - Ms Adams was briefly hyped up as the next big 'voice'. This was a typical USA 'ballad written by committee' though, entirely formulaic and lacking soul.

G.L.A.D by Kim Appleby - a less successful follow up to her debut solo hit, this one scraped to number 10 and I can't remember how it went.

Things get a bit more interesting in the next couple of weeks so hang on in there.

For those of you watching in black and white, Palace are in the red.

I think we should repeat that season's away kits one year. It was ahead of its time, really, as clubs didn't tend to have third kits back then.

Agreed and same context in that all 3 kits are the same design..

Parish in the unlikely event you read this please implement!

The red with blue trim always reminded me of Aldershot for some reason.

The blue with red trim harks back to our first game at Old Trafford, which popped up in the FA Cup Final previews in 1990 - John Sewell's awful penalty which he scored on the rebound IIRC.

February 20th

FA CUP 5th rd replay

EVERTON 4 LIVERPOOL 4


The following day, Kenny Dalglish resigns. Quite a shock. The Liverpool dynasty was beginning to show huge cracks and would very soon be over. Some pundits credited a certain South London club 10 months before, at firing the first huge blow that knocked them off course.
