loved Sportsnight, Harry Carpenter was great, forgot that Wimbledon played their FA Cup replay at S/P who many were there? It looked placked out

There were just over 45,000 there that night, myself being one of them. Remember that Wimbledon were very unlucky to lose. Loads of Palace.

Another thing that would've been lost to memory forever, and having seen this post and heard the commentary, again, it's like I only heard it last week. Definitely used before The Big Match theme, in the same way as Match of the Day used commentary for a McDermott goal, but not as memorable:

If you listen to the commentary on the first one of Chocky's clips, Barry Davies sounds like he was taking the piss.

"All the support it seems, for the under-dogs from the Southern League ... Certainly support from Leeds; one or two of them have made the journey down from Scarborough."

That's the modern equivalent of saying "loads of Chelsea fans from Surrey here today".

Very unlucky. Half of London there it seemed - almost too many. I was relieved when the Burnley game in 79 took the ground record over 51,000 - for a Palace game.

Was Barry Davies a Leeds fan, or at least have some sort of soft spot for them? Because I remember donkey's years ago he was commentating on some important game at Elland Road, Leeds scored a winner late on and he just screamed "YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!!" Slightly over the top for a 'neutral' commentator!

I thought that was odd, but enjoyable!

I'm going to write a letter to Richard Keys and Andy Gray on Ford Super Sunday and tell them my Dad's team as a teenager was St. Mirren, and ask them whatever happened to Hamish McTavish Och Aye in the Nood, the famous Saints striker of that era, maybe they will read out my full address and show a couple of clips of him.

I think he was commentator for that Leeds v Southampton fixture at the height of Leeds' powers when they were stroking the ball around arrogantly, with Davies' arrogant schoolmaster tones matching perfectly.

Didn't they, for quite a while, always feature the Charlie George goal in the 1971 Cup Final? Or was that at the end of the Big Match theme, rather than at the beginning.

I recall the commentary went something along the lines "And it's come to Charlie George, who can hit 'em..."

Who remembers the 'phone line commentary'? In the 70s, most commentary for away European matches came to us via phone lines, David Coleman etc would sound like they were talking down some crappy phone. Well actually there were.

Thanks for the dates JOHN1509. At the end of this disappointing season, it's good to re-live that run-in.

That Orient game was my dad's one and only-ever away trip! What an unbelievable atmosphere. I seem to remember a goal - in our favour - went in at one of the other relevant games and news (as usual) spread like wildfire round the ground. That seemed to spur the lads on and we got the vital goal a couple of minutes later. But I could be wrong...

If you watch the end of the Orient game you see Budgie ask a fan who ran on the pitch "are we up?", the fan seemed to have told him "yes" because he skipped off happy.

Fairly sure it was Wrexham who had scored against Sunderland to get the Palace fans rocking.

There were 3 other teams in serious contention for promotion with us (Brighton, Stoke & Sunderland) and that afternoon was the last match of the season for all of them. If any of them had lost or Sunderland had even drawn, then a win at Orient would have seen us promoted. All 3 of them were playing away and of course all 3 of them won.

The only other long-shot was that West Ham still had 2 games in-hand. As things stood that morning, if they'd won their last 3, then we'd have needed 3 points from our last 2 games to stay above them. Fortunately, West Ham lost away to already relegated Blackburn, ruling them out of contention. That would possibly have been the good news that the crowd heard although Sunderland only won 2-1 at Wrexham so there could well have been an equalizer that would have been enough to send us up.

Bloody bad luck that we didn't settle it that afternoon when you think about it but then we wouldn't have had that Friday night so we can hardly complain.

Orient had someone called Nigel Gray playing for them. Stupid bloody name that is, must've been a jocko or something.
