I was there. In the Homesdale. Then the United lot started lobbing bricks down on us from up the back. Was like a war zone. But we thrashed them.

It was certainly a brilliant game.

Alan and Don Rogers were a formidable forward attacking force in the early/mid -70s. Great days to remember. And there was another wee feller from Millwall Derek Possee, but he didn't last long. Not a lot of heading scope with Whittle and Possee!

Kids,tired of being bothered by your pesky parents?
Then leave home, get a job & pay your own bills, while you still know everything.

Scorer of the first goal I ever saw at Palace.
Forever my hero as a result.

He was. Scored twice on his debut (Beat Sheffield Utd 5-1) and looked a real find then hurt his knee and never seemed to properly get over it.
Celtic fans of a certain vintage remember him playing in bumper boots on a frozen pitch and being unstoppable.

Me too but I don't remember the name of the stand. Don Rogers scored his goals to my left so I can remember that

Yes indeed.

In fact I recall the chant "Five foot two,eyes of blue,Alan Whittle's after you".

And of course he silenced the crowd at Sunderland in the FA Cup with the goal which led to the chants of "The Roker roar is no more".

I do hope he had an enjoyable birthday.

Just the walking towards the ground was much more fun then, my dad always waited at the end of the game and we'd all be listening to his radio until there was only about ten people left in the stadium and then we'd have an easy walk and drive home, really good days then ..so so much different now.

I recall the bygone days after the game when supporters used to walk alongside chaps with transistor radios tuned into football stations so that these supporters could hear the results.How times have changed.
