No actually about 13 years ago I wrote an artlcle about the game for a football magazine called Backpass. 8 years later( 2016) they must have tripped over it and published it. I'd called it Royle Rumpus at Palace but the editor changed it to "I predict a riot." Obviously I had to double check the facts, which was just as well because the old mind does tend to play tricks.

Chelsea in the '76 cup run was horrid (great game though). At half time there was a display by the Met Police Mounted Branch demonstration team, including a gallop towards our end.

Can you imagine how toxic it would have been, if this season's Burnley game, had been in front of a crowd !!??

Surprised no one has mentioned the League Cup semi against Man Utd, the next match after Cantata (the day of the unfortunate murder).

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.

One of the most toxic atmospheres I've ever witnessed at Palace. What others also stick in the mind? Off the top of my head I can think of the following


Probably plenty during the Goldberg era but I can't think of one in particular

Away game memories are permitted (Brighton Boxing Day debacle, Swindon playoff away game, trying to get out of Maine Road after Mark Bright assaulted half their team on the way to a jammy away win, QPR Allen v sign, Villa Park semi replay) and even games where the toxicity had nothing to do with us (anti Fergie demo at Old Trafford).

Fire away
Was there at the mini-protest by the car-park outside the Main Stand.

A few people were questioning him and then one bloke stuck his head in above everyone and asked;

"Goldberg, why don't you just fck-off?"

I remember going to Wolves away - I think when Dougie & Clinton were at Palace- the atmosphere was a bit toxic not at Palace fans but at the Wolves players/staff as their team was on a bad run. Got a feeling programmes were thrown on the pitch.

If we are including opposition fans hammering their own I think Hull away takes some beating. The one when the fans were protesting about the proposed name change to Hull Tigers. Their banner was forcibly removed by stewards. Poisonous atmosphere that day. I remember us giving them huge support in their chants against the board.

Birmingham and *****na weren’t toxic just aggressive and mad. Toxic is the disgust at the team/manager and the Smith season tickets highlighted that.

Hughes got booked and the ref Smiler Dawes was about to book Royle but realized he'd have to send him off if he did. He bottled it and that sparked the first pitch invasion. Hughes got sent off in the second half for a foul on David Johnson. Five bookings, a sending off and three pitch invasions. The match had everything.
That game still didn't feel as toxic as the Tooting and Mitcham match. Five or six Palace fans were stabbed that day.
Royle’s assault on Jacko was as bad as it gets; Dawes lost control of the game lthere and then. I remember the photo of the injury clearly showed six stud marks high on the thigh.
Maybe just a power fantasy, but I recall Hughes legging it 40 yards to put Johnson into the Old Stand.

I can still remember this game very well. Tommy 'Smiler' Dawes was one of the least respected refs at that time (who also remembers Harry New). Totally lost control after five minutes and later threatened to abandon the game. Police had to come to his aid as well as John Hughes. Attached are the pics from the next home programme showing the injury to Jacko.

Both Bert Head and Arthur Wait criticised Dawes heavily afterwards.

Millwall away 96, how we all laughed as we scored 4 and Ndah scored an hilarious overhead kick. How we didn't when we saw hundreds of overweight middle aged Millwall morons waiting for us outside.

Unfortunately that 4th goal through Kasey Keller's legs gave them all a 10 minute head start to get into position outside
