I'm only 14 and haven't been going to Palace for that long but can you beat a last minute winner at Wembley.

My top six games of all time:
1) Palace v Liverpool (1990, Villa Park - FA Cup Semi-Final)
2) Palace v Sheffield United, (1997 Wembley -Div I Play Off Final)
3) Palace v Burnley (1979 Selhurst - Div II League Championship clincher)
4) Palace v Fulham (1969 Selhurst - Div II Promotion clincher)
5) Palace v Blackburn (1989 Selhurst - Div II Play Off Final - 2nd leg)
6) Palace v Everton, (1991 Wembley - Zenith Cup Win)
Lots of great memories there. The Play Off Final victory scores highly, because of the last minute winner and the fact it is so fresh in my memory. I don't think any game however can beat the Semi-Final win against Liverpool at Villa Park. It was such a dramatic and unexpected win, and sent Palace to Wembley for the first time.
Three of the above feature in this decade - and the Semi-Final stands up there as my personal choice.

I agree with all of yours James except I would like to exclude just one of yours and substitute Palace's five goal wonder-achievment against Moan U when Don Rogers got two (I think it was two).
(I ran away from home for this match, having been forbidden by my Mum to go so getting 5 past the Moaners was well worth the telling off when I got home).

James, how could you forget Palace 4 Ipswich 1 Sept 79 to take us top of the league?

Beating Barrow 9-0
Accrington 9-3, losing to Aston Villa 4-3 in the FAC when Vic Rouse let a last minute cross slip through his hands, we were set for one of the great giant killings of all time.
Beating Watford 8-1 on a Tuesday night, the following week we played the return game and lost 3-1
Happy days http://cpfc.org/ubb/biggrin.gif
but I suppose the Liverpool semi has to be the one.
Wrong decade bar one but what memories, money can't buy everything but it can buy a football club

My favourite was away at Arsenal when we won 2-1 (October 1st 94. if my memory serves me well)
Great singing "you're **** and you know you are" to the Arse..

I still fondly remember beating the Wombles 3-2 a few years back, if only for Johny Salad's blinding last minute save.

Ok it isn't a classic by any means but I must mention Palace 8 Southend 0 (attendance 9,653) in the League Cup in the 1990-1 season. How many of you were gutted that you decided to give the game a miss and when is the next time you are going to see a Palace side score eight goals past someone?

My personal favourite, besides all the great games above was the 4-3 defeat of Millwall, in '89 I think. Not particularly because of the football, though it was exciting and there was a cracking winner from Brighty, but because I'd stuck a 10 pound bet on at 80-1 for Palace to win 4-3!!
A different kind of satisfaction after the game than the 4-3 Liverpool!
interested in sydney.

Yes , agree with Sandy of Cornwall. Was at that game.Took a girl friend who was George Best mad and knew nothing of football (he was AWOL ,suprise) Anyway 2-0 up via Paddy Mulligan and I'm doing cartwheels in the Arthur Waite stand enclosure. "Have they started she asks?" I knew then we were through. ALso 2-0 v Burnley. 2-0 v Arsenal in the league cup in 68. Never been to Arsenal and ended on the North Bank. Sunderland at Roker in the cup and any against Millwall especially a game in the mid to late 6os 4-2.
We will survive yeah yeah.
