Anyone got any decent Palace v Brighton stories?

Don't know about decent - more pathetic really. Palace 1 Brighton 1, Easter 1980, Att 31,000! I was a month short of 17, we went to the Lord Napier early and topped up our drinks with our own Vodka. Fell all the way to the ground screaming every Palace song invented. As we walked past the Whitehorse towards the Holmesdale, a mate pulled a golf ball out of his boot and hurled it into the Brighton end! Then during the first half he got out a blue & white' scarf and a box of matches and we all helped burn this 'Brighton' scarf. The police came down and nicked 2 13/14 year olds in front of us.

After the game the same bloke chucked another golf ball at a Brighton car outside the Ship in Croydon. There was a police car that had just turned the corner from Katherine St, and it stopped in front of us. He just stood there so we all ran away and left him. Richard, if you read this, the bloke was Nick Thacker! Bunch of 16 year old w*nkers.

As we came out the Holmesdale and went to walk towards Norwood Junc. our way was blocked by the Boys in Blue to give the scum a safe passage. My mate only lived a couple of roads up and was a bit irate that he couldn't get home(i expect the 10 pint sesh pre match might of helped too) To cap it all one of the horses then unloaded a couple of pound of sh*te narrowly missing my mate.
Much to our amusement he grabbed a handful of steaming horseshit and lobbed it over towards the seaweeds.
Unluckily it chose to disintegrate like a brown maroon over the line of coppers.
Needless to say he got nicked but got off after telling the magistrate that he was frustrated because every time those nasty Brigh*** fans came up to Palace they broke his front room windows.

I've just come out of a Coma after 20 years, so I thought you would like to hear my story. I was with my Brighton friends waiting for the game to start at Selhurst Park, when this small round perforated missile decended from the Heavens and struck me a glancing blow on the temple.
The last thing I remember is being carried away from the ground along a line of coppers an hour or two later, when it started raining horse shit. I then lapsed into a coma from which I have just emerged. A weird day.
However, there is a bright side to my story. Now that I have awoken from my stupour, I have come to realise that Palace are the good guys and the missile must have been a signal from God, telling me that I was standing at the wrong end.
So what's been happening over the last few years? Is that wonderful human being Venables still our manager?

Eddie I loved that heart warming story. Yes there's been a huge transformation in Selhurst during your absence. Price of Beer is nearly 2 pounds. A match program cost the same as the beer. And Nookie the Bear is Palace's chairman.

Without incriminating myself I have witnessed ultra-violence at close quarters, in side streets,on the Goldstone terrace, on trains and in the park outside. One incident which sticks out is the train buffet car heist of 77/78. I still can't believe why a fully laden buffet with booze was left unattended. Needless to say the Palace boys had a field day at BR's expense. Does any one else remember the train ride back to E Croydon.

There was a brilliant incident on the last boxing day we played them(sometime in the late 80's).After the match me & my mates were walking to the station when we saw 3 palace geezers kicking the crap out of 2 brighton supporters on someones front path, a copper turned up and pulled off the palace supporters saying "now now boys you've had your fun" and let them go while the 2 brighton geezers were laying on the floor with their noses splattered across their faces.

On a serious note - a lot of people end up in prison for life because of a bit of thuggery that got out of control, one punch that changed someone's destiny hardly seems worth it in the name of sport, so quite how Gavin's recollection is "brilliant" I can't quite see. Sorry to disagree with you Gavin, maybe its an age thing and having children etc.
On a more lighthearted note, I made the mistake of going to a match with some Brighton supporting friends who got very drunk, turned round and abused everyone sitting in the seat in the main stand (we were in the enclosure) and inssisted on drving round the Lingfield and East Grinstead area after the game spraying BAHFC on every wall they passed. All because they lost 3-0 the twats!

Remember New Years day when the Palace fans turned up wearing Ski Hats for the first time, I believe it made the papers under a Fashion headline.
Anyway we were quieing to get in because of course the Bill had to search every crevice in those days when a copper pulled the biggest bloody knife I have ever seen from this Geezers touser leg. Upon being asked the reason for wearing such atire the person in question replied something like 'To do a bit of carving' to which he was hastened away by several boys in blue.

Sorry, i meant it was brilliant at the time as i was younger(about 20 at the time)and not what you would call an angel.I agree with you Al about children change your lives as i have a little boy and since he was born i have really mellowed out.

I too have a pile of vivid recollections concerning B&HA most of which I am now deeply embarressed about. Consequently they are staying where they are safest - in my memory.
