Decided to make a You Tube documentary about the time Palace missed out on Europe in 1991 despite finishing third in the top flight.

Not sure if some of the younger fans will even be aware of it, but those of us around at the time will never forget the disappointment and feelings of anger at the end of such an amazing season for our club. It just didnt feel fair and 29 years later, it still smarts.

Done a bit of digging in old newspaper reports and other interviews and media stuff I kept from the time, and have detailed as many of the facts surrounding the events leading to Liverpool getting their European ban overturned.

In those pre internet days, it was something that was very quickly swept under the carpet by the football world; Liverpool finished second us third, so what were we moaning about? Liverpool were cheered back into Europe by the media, while everyone at Palace stood there fuming at the total unfairness of it all.

It was the beginning of the end of the best team in our history. (Sorry Team of the 80s you were the most exciting).

Its part of our history that has largely been forgotten, so thought Id detail the events even just to get closure for myself if nothing else!

Great video - thanks for making it.
Just goes to show the narrow margins that can make or break clubs - in this case by the FA old fogies!

The Great UEFA U-turn.

My only criticism of your excellent reminder of an awful injustice is that you didn't entitle it The Great UEFA Stitch-up. Well done anyway. It'll keep the anger simmering for a bit longer.

That was actually my original title.

But thought Id be a little bit restrained.

and if we had got into Europe we would have been beaten home and away in the preliminary rounds by Latvia's or Azerbajan's league cup winners, embarrassed like 95% of all the English teams after the Heysel ban.

My dream remains to be able to go to such a match in Latvia or Azerbajan to watch Palace play in European competition...
