Actually mate I think you're getting the game and the season mixed up.

The year we won the Championship by 9 points we drew 0-0 at your place, and beat you 2-0 at Selhurst.

If we managed to win it by 9 points with the team you've posted, it would have been quite an achievement as most of them would have been between 40 and 50.

Palace romped the league this season, winning by 9 points from Forest in 2nd and Millwall in 3rd. Charlton finished half way.



I wish we had. We finished 15th in Div 2 in 81/82 when this match was played, Charlton finished 13th. Forest finished 12th in the 1st and Millwall finished 9th in the 3rd. The top 3 in Div 2 were
Luton 88pts
Watford 80 pts
Norwich 71 pts

I agree, Soccerbase.com, agrees too.

Much as there were some luminaries, I was pretty sure that our team wasn't that good

Just to even it up,......

Palace 2 (Walsh 23,51) Charlton 0

12th September 1981

McAllister left the field in the 12th minute after a clash of heads with Hinshelwood. He was off for 14 minutes, having four stitches inserted in a head wound and during this time Palace scored their opening goal.

Bet there were, with players like Paul Barron Brian Bason David Price Tommy Langley Steve Hughes Steve Leahy it made this seasons football look like free flowing one touch brilliance, we won 13 games that season and went through December, Jan & Feb without winning a league game

Was that the old 2nd division? (CCC today)

The last Palace game I saw before I left The UK was QPR v Palace on the plastic pitch in September of 1981 which should have been that season.

When did Charlton ground share? Seems all so long ago now.

Yes it was the old div 2, the level we are now. Charlton started sharing with us in 85/86 and stayed [I think] to 88/89 though I might be wrong on when they left.

Again, remember it well. Think it was on the London Match or whatever it was called in those days. One was a header i remember.
