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?
Bournemouth stewards were always unpleasant. Wasn't there some sort of link with Chelsea?

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

The story goes that with us comfortably ahead and Man C stumbling to defeat, a fan ran on to the pitch to ‘advise’ the players of the score at Selhurst and remind them what was at stake. Whether it actually had an effect who knows, but City equalised with a good chunk of the (delayed) second half left at Selhurst, and our game petered out with Birmingham scoring a late(ish) consolation.

Attached are the pics from the next home programme showing the injury to Jacko.

Both Bert Head and Arthur Wait criticised Dawes heavily afterwards.

Arthur Wait was quoted the next day as saying," I thought at one point he was going to start booking the corner flags."
In an era just before muscle bound minders came into vogue, it was Bert Head's young daughter Sue, who was given the task to escort 'Smiler' to his car and ward off the hostile masses.

I went to those three games. I recall that the second replay was at Highfield Road rather than Villa Park. There were 44,000 fans at the Selhurst replay.

You're right I should have checked my Rev Sands before posting. The Reverend says we played a League Cup second replay against Villa at Highfield Road in 1978 but I have absolutely no memory of going to that game.

I'd better have a nice cup of tea and a sit down while I watch some Don Rogers videos.

I was quite young but i recall that game at Selhurst. IIRC Sheffield had a very quick defender (Sunley?) who managed to block out Don Rogers.

I think it was '77 when Tottenham stormed the turnstiles on the Holmesdale and a massive crush as they came in.

Very nervous tinder box atmosphere for the rest of the game.
