Millwall 4-1 away. Thank you Kassey Keller.
I Remember a great 1-0 win in the 91-92 season at White Heart Lane. It was one of my first away games and McGoldrick scored for Palace. How things have changed. At the time EL Tel was bankrupting Spurs(He does it everywhere he goes!) and we were all coming down the escalator's at Victoria on the way to North London singing, loads and loads of money to the South London spurs gloryhunters. Anyway it was a great atmostohere as the away end at spurs was full of Red N Blue. Also we relegated west ham that season 2-0 at Upton Park, do you remember how packed the away terrace was that day and we gave Alvin Martin loads of grief! My third great London triumph was the away 2-1 win at Highbury 94-95 season. We all went mental in the clock end as Salako scored. The 1-0 win over millwall at Selhurst was also sweet in 93-94, and there was also a 3-0 win in the Anglo Italian against millwall that season as well.

Palace 1 Brighton 0 FA Cup first round 2nd replay at Stamford Bridge 1976. Those wankers had the shed and they had a perfectly good goal disallowed. We got a dubious penalty, we missed it, the ref ordered it to be retaken for encroching when one of our players ran in the box with him, that player got booked, and Noddy Holder put away the retaken spot-kick. And Mr Mullery was a little bit upset at the end. Big nostrilled nob-end.
The play off semi against the anoraks at their Subbuteo stadium was superb. God we took the piss out of them, what made it better was that they had been ahead for so long during the game. And another Kenny Brown equaliser to savour as well.
I've just thought of a couple of great wins against London opesition at Selhurst, 91-92 season in the league cup 4-1 against chelsea, I remember Coleman's celebrating his goal before the ball was in the net and as it was such a rainy evening the ball almost got stuck in the mud but luckily it just made it over the line. Then there was the home win over w ham in 94-95 when w ewon 1-0 and King Ray Houghton scored.

I'm with ajp on this one. Beating the Chelsea tossers was great in that Coleman scored with the ball limping over the line after dribbling through the mud and they had an identical chance later. only the ball stopped just in front of the line and some hero cleared it.

Another one was a one-nil victory over West Ham at Upton Park where for some bizarre reason Tim Breaker tried to pass the ball back to their keeper (in the days in which it was allowed) from the corner flag and for some bizarre reason hadn't noticed Brighty standing at the edge of the area who trapped the ball and buried it. What mirth !!
The West Ham game was 2-0 and saw the first airing of 'your going to Barnserlee que sera sera' as we as good as relegated them. What I remember was that West Ham only gave us a small section of terracing at the side of what is now the Bobby Moore stand, totally underestimating the 1000's that travelled across the Capital. The result was a total squash in the away end, you'd never see that now it would be considered far too dangerous. I also remember being locked in after the game and Johnny Salad coming on to the pitch and doing some ball skills.

ajp & Richard. God you've brought back memories of that Chelsea game. Torrential rain pissing down all evening, standing on the Holmesdale in a suit having come straight from work and getting absolutely soaked - and stuffing the pretentious Kings Road wannabee's. As a team we were right up for it and they clearly weren't, it was brilliant. The whole event was topped off when walking to the pub we witnessed one car load of Chelsea fans brake and skid into the back of a minibus full of their fans. F*cking excellent.
