Tackles and I mean proper tackles.

Standing on the barriers next to the pitch you could not only see players smashing in to each other you could hear it as well. But they got straight up, shook hands and off they went again.

I miss that part of the game as it was a art as much as any other in the game.

Going to my nans for the weekend leaving all the women's side of the family watching World of Sport with old Dickie Davis I think whilst me and dad and uncle went to the palace. Get back after the game and parents and grandparents would go to the local club in Brockley for apiss up whilst we would mess about back at nans. Quality times. Remember seeing Pat Jennings in goal whilst in the Whitehorse and thinking bloody hell size of his hands won't score past them.

In the fifties, getting a number 3 bus up to Crystal Palace, and then the trolleybus to Norwood Junction - before I decided that a 68 from West Norwood was better value, as well as dropping me right outside the ground.

Using the boys' entrance when I was well over age.

why would you take a fishing rod to football?

My recollection of the post match newspaper sellers was calling out Star News and Standard, all the half time scores except for some reason it sounded like skiers! Used to go around the local newsagent waiting for full time scores and reports to come, also saturday sports report.

Watching bicycle polo before the match. Have never forgotten as a kid seeing some old boy who was working for Palace and putting out advertising boards for the next game. Some lads had been cheeking him and suddenly keeled over and died--I was told to keep out of the way while they tried rubbing the palms of his hands to revive him. sadly failure.

The match ball was auctioned by selling penny on the ball tickets,

Back in those days pre season games were usually between the possibles v the probables.

We often watched friendly or testimonial games that included the likes of Alex James.

Players were generally known for skill rather than being super athletes which is prevalent in today's game.

Tactically today's football is much more advanced, players used to have time to trap the ball were as today's players bring the ball under control by killing the momentum.

Today we get upset by fans using clacker's, while we excelled with our wooden rattles,so not much progress with that.

I don't know what my early memories are. I have a terrible memory. I know that I was banned from going for years thanks to the misbehaviour of my oft-arrested older brothers.

First game was a 0-0 v Preston. Remember beef v Barnsley and Newcastle at home. My brothers wouldn't let me stand with them in the AW. With good reason it turned out.

From then I feel like it was years before my dad gave into my nagging and took me to Man U in the Milk Cup.

But from 0-10 years old I could've gone to 5 games or it could have been 200. Just don't remember. Know I wasn't allowed to go to Burnley.

There's a smell of a perfumed tobacco that I really miss.

Happy days from what I recall.

I recall the days of Palace supporters being ejected from the Whitehorse where they went to confront 'Home' supporters.Recall them being marched along the side of the pitch and into the Holmesdale.

And the Millwall cries of "Warren, where are you ?" referring to Denny Warren.

I recall the 'Evening Standard' and I think the one on Saturday with the scores was the 'Evening Standard' classified edition but it is so long ago and I could be wrong.Also heard of the 'Standard'. Memory not as good as it was !

In Manchester a similar paper with results was known as the 'Pink' and the green paper in Sheffield was the 'Green un'.

Edited by Willo (19 Feb 2017 11.52pm)

it was the "pink echo" and was printed on a Saturday late afternoon by the Liverpool Echo in Liverpool and would be taken round to pubs to be sold

 


Following Palace since 25 Feb 1978

Earlier in this thread I asked whether anyone recalled the Holmesdale end's rendition of Chopin's Funeral March when an opposition player was stretchered off (not that anyone would have known that that's what it was) - the answer was a resounding silence. So what about another long-buried memory that has just resurfaced: the chant of "There's gonna be a nasty accident" - presumably when we were "entertaining" Millwall.
