Waiting on the platform at Selhurst after the Liverpool game.
A near-empty train trundles into the station and draws to a slow halt. Inside one of the carriages is a lady sitting on her own,...in a Chelsea shirt.

The look of shock on her face was a picture, as the train doors open and Palace fans flood in, everyone clocking her T-shirt.

two seconds later the carriage start singing at the top of our voices.

"John Terry, John Terry
John Terry, John Terry
Scoring goals for Palace
John Terrrrryyyyy."

She managed a wry smile, but I think she was secretly relieved not to get gang-r@ped.

Puncheon missing that penalty against Spurs. He became a goal machine after that.

Cardiff going down.

The sheer volume of the Glenn Murray song as he made his return against West Brom.

That foreign chap getting all excited about seeing Everton play for the first time only to have it called off.

Brighton spunking their beans in the playoffs.

The recovery against Liverpool/Suarez have a blub.

Lots of great moments, some of which have become a blur

After Sunderland & Newcastle people starting to bemoan where our next points would come from. Next game was Chelsea at home, a favourite not just because we won but because we didnt just nick it, we deserved the win.

Gayle scoring v Villa, as big an influence on our season as anything, out of the bottom 3.

Liverpool at home, a nothing game, we were safe, they had everything to play for and at 0-3 looked comfortable. The spirit we showed to come back bodes well for next season, it took me days to stop smiling

 


the dignified don't even enter in the game

The moment Spurs scored on the opening day.

The atmosphere just continued to lift and lift and you just knew that it was going to be an amazing season however things panned out. Standing ovation and whole ground singing as the players left the field

That moment of realising that palace fans would not stop however precarious things appeared.

Being at uni I thought i'd miss all the good stuff about this season, but

First win against Sunderland was great, a lovely sunny day and first win for 8 years in the prem. Glad we got one under holloway as well, i'll forever be grateful to him for getting us up.

Old trafford was good, first time i'd been there and although we didnt do anything particularly inspiring the songs were funny and it was just a good dAY

Villa on Boxing day was a real turning point, we'd won a couple at home and this game was sandwiched in between chels, city, spurs, arsenal away. Had we lost that game then we could have had a dreadful away record that could have become a bit of a voodoo that lasted the season. I said to my dad about a minute before we scored that a point would be brilliant and much needed as sunderland were beating eveerton. Then a last minute winner from outtsied the box away from home is always gonna be one of the moments of the season, watching my dAD clamber over the seats to get to the front was pretty funny too.

Came down for chelsea at home as well, fantastic game, so glad i was there for that. Moment of the season for me.

Villa at home was also pretty good, that sealed safety for me, i thought 34 would be enough to stay up this season so when we got to 37 pts and in midtable, looking at the fixtures we were definitely safe.

I thought I had been really lucky in terms of going to all the big games, then i had to watch Crystanbul on some sh1tty stream (sorry staffie, my laptop's fault). But can't complain really

 


Messi, you're good, but you can't hit a ball like ambrose

January Transfer Deadline Day.

At the start of that day we knew we had a manager capable of keeping us up and we knew we had players prepared to run through the proverbial brick wall for the cause. But we didn't know (and some of us -- me included -- doubted) whether we had owners who would support the manager and do what was necessary to take us over the top.

That was the night, for me, that proved the fact that we were being transformed from another regular bottom-feeder/yo-yo club into, if within its means, a club with an appetite to properly grow and move up and improve. In signing Hennessey, Ledley, Ince and Dann we brought in players the manager genuinely wanted, and "proper" players at that (no Eliot Grandin's in the January haul). Those four were capable of being part of the backbone of a genuine Premiership side.

I was very active (and critical) in posting here in the January window for the good reason that I felt we were at a pivot point and how we acted in response to Pulis' requests for new players would go a long way to determining how we fared over the next decade or longer. After January, my participation in posting here slowed notably in the main because once that window shut, I honestly never felt we wouldn't survive. Sure, I bit my nails until we were mathematically safe but from February onwards, I was entirely confident we would stay up.

There were more dramatic moments this season -- like Liverpool -- but none better. I went to bed that night supporting a different team than the one I had woken up to that morning. It was possibly the first time in 44 years at Palace that I thought we genuinely belonged in the Premiership...from the owners to the manager to the players and on down.

The win at Villa and Dwight's SICK goal. Getting out of the drop at the dreaded Xmas point and beating the whole "three teams in the bottom at xmas go down" stat.

The most important memory I take home from Villa, after smacking the crap out the advertising hoarding in front of me for most of the second half of the game, was a guy shouting "AND A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE OF YA" like some sort of Red and Blue army version of Tiny Tim as everyone was leaving.

Tiny Tim mate, it was the best Xmas I have ever had. Thanks!

Absolutely THIS! You've got to add Holloway's determination to leave after SP asked him to sleep on his decision that day. So thanks Ollie!!

Btw, Kasami's opener for Fulham was my non-Palace goal of the season. I was sitting at the front of the gallery directly opposite him when he chested and struck it...absolute cracker!

I commented on this thread earlier about west ham, but if I had to pick my favourite moment, Chelsea at home, the atmosphere was out of this world, and I left that game knowing we would stay up!

 


Just when I thought that I was out...........they pull me back in
