Yes, another painful early exit. FA Cup just meant so much in those days, and the last thing you wanted as a top flight side was to bow out against lower league opponents. Compared to the following season’s exit at Hartlepool, this wasn’t too bad mind.

It’s funny; it’s almost as if we paid some karmic debt for reaching the cup final with years of cup misery. We were knocked out at the first hurdle (3rd rd) in 6 of the 7 seasons following that famous 1990 Wembley cup final. The anomaly being the semi we lost to Man U in ‘95.

I’ve been doing a little Palace history video project (that might see the light of day at some point), looking at each decade from the 60’s onwards. The 90’s for us was far and away the most crazy, jam packed event filled, rollercoaster decade of them all.

Reading those articles is very interesting. Noades critising fans for not turning up for the Forest game saying we can kept keep our best players on those gates then goes and takes a huge loss on both Bodin and Gabbiadini within a few weeks. Big signs that the wheels had fallen off and we were heading south.

Looking at that line up, you can start to see the team evolving into the side which went up in 1994. Sad how quickly that team broke up after finishing third. Truly my favourite era supporting the club.

Never realised how much we lost on Bodin. Honestly thought it was 'only' £50000. Absolute shocker. Why did we sell him so cheaply?

He couldn't have become 40% of his spring value in the space of 7 months surely.

Because we didn't want to pay the appearance based extra fee.

It's strange that in my mind I remember him as being a Palace player when he missed the crucial penalty which would (might) have sent Wales to the 1994 World Cup, but of course he'd left us by then.

I remember that Leeds game as an unexpected moment of respite during what was rapidly becoming a particularly turgid and savage period, a hard earned away point at the league leaders and eventual champions. The fourth 1-1 draw in five league games, now up to one win in nine and counting and that was a narrow 1-0 at home to lowly Notts County. Things would get worse before they got better results wise although on the positive side we did appear to be stopping the defensive rot - those four goals conceded in our last five games compared to 13 in the previous four. Although we still had the joint fourth worst defensive record in the division at this stage.

Going back a little further into this excellent thread after a short absence, the cup defeat at Leicester was a big blow. It had become evident by that point that our league campaign was likely to fizzle out into a damp squib following the heroics of the season before, but we already had enough points on the board to make it extremely unlikely to get sucked into the relegation fight. As such a good cup run seemed like just the tonic everyone needed and to fall at the first hurdle again in such disappointing fashion was hard to swallow. Where did the season go from here?

Away from Palace, the bottom half of the table makes for interesting reading at this stage of the season. Nine clubs separated by just eight points with no-one cut adrift. And check out the contrast between Luton's home and away records, the old plastic pitch coming to the fore once again maybe.

Jumping back on to the top ten wagon after a spell on the sidelines, in part because unusually week ending 4 January 1992 had no new entries (and then last week I forgot):

New entries week ending 11 January 1992

Goodnight Girl by Wet Wet Wet - this limp ballad got all the way to number one and spent four weeks there, becoming the tenth biggest selling single of the year. Pretty much unlistenable, it certainly lives up to the group's name. Who bought this stuff? Scottish housewives who fancied Marti Pellow I guess.

Everybody In The Place by The Prodigy - One of their string of early hardcore rave hits before Keith Flint was pushed more to the fore, this climbed as high as number two and ticked all the expected boxes.

Week ending 18 January:

We Got A Love Thang by CeCe Peniston - one of the great handbag house voices, I well remember cutting a rug to this back in the day. Good clean harmless fun, still an enjoyable and nostalgia-filled listen today. It was the first of three top ten hits she enjoyed in 1992 and why not, she deserved it (note: I may or may not have had a bit of a crush on her).

God Gave Rock 'n' Roll To You II by Kiss - was this the one tied in to the Bill and Ted film? Can't remember. Acceptable example of the commercial hard rock genre if a little clunky.

I Can't Dance by Genesis - a shudder went down my spine on reading this one from the list, a similar sound to fingernails being scraped down a blackboard with Phil Collins' whiny vocal on top of a miserably chugging track. Awful stuff

My main recollection of the Leeds game is at half time when a steaming, yellow river came trickling down the terrace, and we all moved sideways a little to let it continue unhindered. Those were the days eh?

January 1992 was in effect when everything from an excitement point of view just stopped. I'd been attending games since late 1988 and I'd had promotion, Cup Final, 3rd place, ZDS all in that first three years.

Suddenly we were out of the ZDS just before Xmas, the League was suddenly drudge and we were out of the FA Cup. We admittedly were still in the League Cup QF and that was still to play for in early Feb at Nottingham Forest.

I remember during that Saturday afternoon v City that us teenage herberts at the back of Compound Two on the Holmesdale were larking about and making our own entertainment (blowing condoms up and making them into balloons and surging for the sake of surging,) and the football was there but not important.

We cheered Bright's goal (first goal for him in about 18 games IIRC) but then weren't overly bothered when City scored. We were annoyed but it didn't stab me through the heart like it would have done the year before.

And I know for most of the rest of the season it was all a bit flat, I had a season ticket for the first time and it would be my first full league season of home attendance but there were a load of dull games to come in the early part of 1992.
