On BBC1 at 2.00 today

 


Trivial fact - Palace used to win 5-1 at least once a season, maybe next season?

That’ll be enjoyable. Wonder if Mr. Pardew will be watching?

Just finished watching the full re-run on Palace TV, good old fashioned pitch, meaty challenges, didnt realise how cynical L'pool were & our poke n hope attitude. Our set pieces were brill. Who'dve thought Andy Gray could be a forward. We still couldn't make a simple pass even back then.

A joy to watch & many memories bought back.

Brought a tear to my eye.

Enjoyed telling my kids about the team and for them to be able to see players they have heard me speak about.

Great day.

I didn't realise at the time what an amazing shift Mark Bright put in in that game.

We bought Eric Young a few months after the 1990 final along with John Humphrey and Glyn Hodges.

We started 89/90 season playing Jeff Hopkins and Andy Thorn at CB but Gary O’Reilly came in for Hopkins at some point. I think it was injury rather than lobbing our own Perry Suckling from 40 yards at home vs Millwall in that 4-3 winning thriller. Then of course Andy Thorn got injured so that defence that wasn’t our planned one, including Salako at left back did a great job vs a top class Liverpool side. That first goal for them made me fear the worst. Then it all changed after half time. Then in changed again and again. I think we were as knackered ss the players.

Fantastic result considering we had 6 first team players missing including talisman Ian Wright.

And of course they got the big team bias decision when Staunton went down for a very soft penalty.

I was sitting near the tunnel, along the touchline. The arrogant look on Daglish's face as he left the field and re-entered after half-time was astounding. The fact they took Rush off at half-time, when he could probably stayed on summed it up
