76 defeat to Southampton in the semi. I was in bits afterwards.

Made worse because I had broken up with my Southampton born girlfriend a week or two before and her Southampton season ticket holding father would have been very happy.

On the upside we got back together after a couple of months, got married in 1978 and happily retired to France 4 years ago.

I still don't like Southampton though...

There's been so many for me....losing to Bristol City in the play-offs after Ben Watson had missed a penatly for us that would of seen us go to Wembley.

Charlton relegating us in 2005.

Although we did end up surviving on the last day at Hillsborough I will always remember the previous game at home to West Brom where if we won we would of been safe. I think it was 1-1 and Ambrose had a shot in the last minute that got saved of the line by a defender and meaning we had to go to the last game of the season not knowing if we would survive. Walking out the ground I felt sick and nervous at how close we had just come....but then again Hillsborough was one of the best days being a Palace fan so who would change it now!


blimey i forgot about that.

Steven Reid saved it on the line.


Danns got the stupidest red card in that game too, always thought he was a d!ck since that game, totally let us down!

On a side note, I have the match ball from this game at home.


That game also produced a more amusing moment. The Sky cameras did close up's on devastated Palace fans. As each one realised they were on TV, their distraught faces turned to smiles and waves, apart from one guy I remember that just couldn't muster a smile.

Plenty, but one that still wrankles is the Cup Semi in 76 and it still hurts today - My 9 year old self genuinely thought we were going to win the FA Cup


Sash i had a 1 WIN on us at 250-1.!!!!
From the First Round.
Saw all the games in that Cup Run.

Alan I went to every game in that cup run,but my mind is playing tricks with me.
Did we play Scarboro in the first round?

No Walton & Hersham then Millwall.

See attached.

3rd round was scarboro......away knew it.

The Claridge goal is right up there but I am still emotionally scarred by losing the 1976 semi final.


That 76 semi is the one for me too.........it was never a pen and I still hate David Peach for scoring the f***in thing!

It probably isn't the most painful, but stings alot.

league cup 1st round defeat to Notts County at Selhurst, think there was only 2'000 fans, was raining , was only about 16 and we lost 2-1 and we played a really strong side.

And I think Darren Casket may have scored the winner, having turned us down that summer.

Paid about 28 odd quid for a ticket ( bought on the night I think)

All in all a true fail.

Where to start.

Back to Back Double relegation thanks to Cardiff (pain eased last Saturday) in the 70's.
FA Cup Final Replay - went to both games. Just depressing. Just 8 mins away.
1993 Relegation - never, never again do a lap of honour without mathematical safety assured. Horrible.
1995 Relegation and 2 Cup Semi Final defeats in both comps - notably Manure (again).
1996 - Claridge at Wembley (my son then 11, cried after the game - redemption in 1997)
2005 - last minute equaliser from Higginbotham then Clowns pain - again just 8 mins left! Just horrible - twice in successive games.

My worst memory of all - 1 June 2010 until 3pm - when Lloyds and Bank of Scotland between them almost liquidated CPFC as we know it. Neither my son nor I could work that day until we knew the club had been saved. Text messages, phone calls - just awful. It was like losing a close family member and a part of our lives, and we could only hope, pray and protest at Lloyds in Lombard Street. I felt sick until safety happened.

 


1 June 2010 - saved from oblivion by CPFC 2010
27 May 2013 - promoted to Premier League
2013-14 - 11th in PL
2014-15 - 10th in PL
2015-16 - 15th in PL
2016-17 - 14th in PL (and grateful for that!)

Being in my early 20's so I don't remember Leicester or the cup final. For me it was probably the League Cup Semi 2nd leg against Cardiff.

We had recently come out of admin, the team was decimated and we were the underdogs.
Overcoming admin and Hillsborough probably gave me a false sense of indestructibility that we were going to win the trophy let alone the 2nd leg. I was telling anyone that would listen that Gardner's 1st leg goal was all that was needed to progress and as long as Liverpool beat City in the other tie, we would beat them.
All that confidence disappeared as soon as extra-time finished, the pessimism that i had become accustom to with Palace came flooding back and i sat in that stand with my hands over my ears like a scared child, praying that i'd hear a roar of celebrations when they were over. A massive come down after the win at Old Trafford.

To this day I still haven't seen that shootout(I'm told they were awful).

The last time when we were in the premiership and we drew 2-2 with charlton and got relegated.

I couldn't get a ticket for the palace end and so my cousin managed to get me a ticket for the palace end and sitting in with them singing at the palace fans ther stupid 'Amarillo' song 'sha la la la and we sent the palace down' broke my heart.

Also, the year we lost to Bristol City I think it was in the play off semi final and lee trundle scored and sent them to the final and not us.... The lows of being a palace fan

76 semi for me, that cup run instilled in me everything it is to be a Palace fan.the unbelievable joy of winning a football match, i was 10 years old at the Bridge,first away game, with my big brother Dave (12)got caught up in the trouble,ended up watching second half stood by the invalid cars at the shed end!.After the Leeds & sunderland results all palace fans said "it's our year" and i believed them.We tied scarfs around the t.v on semi-final day and prayed!. For all the bad days mentioned on this thread, i was at most of them,nothing matches the tears of that semi-final,

A life story in one, short post. Great stuff!
