But we ended up finishing 1 point behind Man City who took the 2nd automatic promotion place behind Chelsea.
4 clear goals PLUS Bournemouth had to beat Man City for us. Bournemouth were winning for a long time but Trevor Morley equalised in the 86th and that was that. Because of the riot at Selhurst we were half hour behind them so by early in the 2nd half at 4-0 up we knew we couldn't go up that day. Our game ended 4-1

Quite impressive that Wright was in the papers saying he was going to get a hattrick....and managed it BEFORE half time!

Exactly right. A lot of mutual respect between the two fanbases that day, with both sides being anti-steward/police.

Bizarre that a banner saying WE ARE HULL CITY being walked around in front of their own supporters and getting clapped by both sets of fans was enough to get the police wading in.

Real shame what happened to that fanbase - the owners (The Allam family) won't sell and many fans simply refuse to go back until they leave the club.

Southend away 1995-96. Our fanbase were split 50/50 on the 'Noades In/Out' debate. A fight broke out between our fans leading to ejections and just a shitty atmosphere for teh rest of the game. Dull 1-1 draw but all I remember is the fighting and getting talking to the guys who were thrown out, on the train home.

Maybe I just wasn't paying attention!
My God - where the hell were you to not be close to one of the many scuffles that broke out all round the ground? The roof of the stand???

That was Poisonville that night. The kung fu bit was chaotic but then when May scored 7 minutes later, we had a load more scuffles around the place as United fans had managed to get tickets in the home sections.

26 August 1989 - Palace 0 Coventry 1. Referee Brian Hill single-handedly caused what felt like the entire crowd to chant 'the referees a wanker' for what felt like the entire second half. I'd love to know the true figures of how many of that 11000 crowd were actually doing the chants. Two open terraces and it rained all game. The players were losing their shit as every decision went Coventry's way. What a sh1t afternoon that truly was!

8 May 1993 - Arsenal 1-0 on that horrible relegation afternoon. Wright (who'd already scored) then goes in super late on the Ninja. The Palace crowd booed - Wright reacted by blowing kisses to us. Whole away end transformed instantly into rabid piranhas trying to get on the pitch. You want the definition of toxic - that was it!

4 Nov 1995 - Not an obvious one but things weren't working with the new Peter Nicholas/Ray Lewington management duo. In the bottom half of the league we were one of the favourites to win. Lowly Reading came to Selhurst and cantered to an easy 2-0 win. Nasty crowd reaction to Chris Coleman and he may even have scored an own goal or at the very least been responsible for one of the goals from memory - certainly he was the target of a lot of abuse from the Holmesdale and would soon be on his way to Blackburn. Horrible atmosphere.

Strange quirk in that this lower second tier match had two England goalies in it with Nigel for us and Chris Woods (only recently out of the England side) in goal for Reading at that time.

Oct 1994 - Palace won at Filbert Street and got coined by Leicester fans - toxic atmosphere

Millwall at home 2001. The match started with the edgiest minute's silence I've ever experienced, ending up with someone in the Holmesdale shouting "Shut up you *****" towards the Millwall fans, who had the whole Arthur. They went on to win 3-1, taking the piss, trashing the place (I distinctly remember seeing one holding a toilet seat above his head). A lone Palace fan couldn't take it any more and ran out the of Holmesdale onto the pitch to try to confront them all. And at the end we were penned in on Holmesdale Road while Millwall went off to Norwood Junction, trashing cars as they went,

1992 - Last day of the season at QPR. Palace lose. Loftus Road runs out of food early and Palace fans pissed off and hacked off when QPR fans take the piss, coming on the pitch at the end

1999 - Last day of the season at QPR. Palace lose. Loftus Road runs out of food early and Palace fans pissed off and hacked off when QPR fans take the piss, coming on the pitch at the end

* Should add, there was a slight difference here as the 1992 one was largely humourous during the game, in spite of the lack of food, although it did ugly with the attempted pitch invasion at the end.

It was for Wimbledon. 0-3 Feb 1998. Missed the second goal as I had my head in the bog after a ridiculously heavy weekend on the cider

Valerian Ismael's (horror) debut.

Made 13 appearances for us - it was unlucky for him AND us!

Anyone mentioned that madd night v Chelsea in the Coca Cola Cup QF in Jan 1993 - the puddle game!

28000 crowd and must have been close to 50/50 Palace/Chelsea, with their fans all over the place. Plenty of middle aged Chelsea sticking a few fist on Palace teens at the back of the Holmesdale that night. Certainly added a toxic edge to what was a memorable evening

Man U fans were all over the Arthur that night. I was sat there bang opposite the incident and the atmosphere was indeed toxic. The players also were stoked up. Richard Shaw did a masterful job on the readily combustible Cantona and the rest is history

That was a real low. The 5-0 was just before my time, but this match might have been the worst defeat for me in terms of how shit I thought we were. Either that or the 3-1 at home to Crewe when Kit Symons was caretaker.

Toxic atmosphere as soon as you got off the coach, fans spoiling for a fight, spitting on female football fans.

Southgate assault during the game.
Wasn’t that the FA semi?

Watching games of that era how bad were the challenges in the Everton game to get Selhurst so incensed. In todays game many games would of ended up 5 a sude.
Leeds fans were even more toxic than usual that day.

Yes, they did not like the idea 'little old Palace' had become the team that everyone was talking about and did not like being taught a football lesson, we were awesome that day, played their mighty team off the park.

Bournemouth away 87/88.

Kicked off for ages in the first half in the away end between Palace fans and the police and stewards. Went on for ages - total carnage and the atmosphere was venomous. Had one eye on the game and the other on the procession of Palace fans being dragged out of the terrace by the old bill. Funny thing was while all this was going on, we went 2 down then 3-2 up by half time!

The following season there were a few incidents as well. One I’ll never forget was there was a middle aged guy with two young kids standing in the Palace end just next to me. Suddenly, Palace fans rounded on him and he quickly ran for cover and bundled the kids and himself to the front where stewards let him out through a gate in the fence as punches and kicks reigned in on him. The Palace fans said he was undercover old bill. Have to say, the way he reacted, kind of suggested they were right, but not a very nice sight. Would the old bill have been stupid enough to put those children in danger as part of an operation? Anyone else remember that?

Can’t remember which game it was, but one of those at the end of the game a Palace fan ran on the pitch at the final whistle to celebrate with the players. A steward started chasing him and as he was about to get within reach Geoff Thomas accidentally on purpose, tripped the steward up and turned to the away end and gave us all a cheeky smile. Was hilarious but can you imagine how much trouble he’d get in today doing that?
