Interesting stuff .....i can't be 100 per cent certain,though i should be....but i think Leicester have had a few moves between 1884 and settling at Filbert Street,Aylestone rd near to me,Victoria park opposite the pub where the Whitehorse lads drank 2 seasons ago and i'm sure there was at least one more location.........plus the new thing we're at now.....progress i think they call it.:eek:

Yes, but S.B. was offered to Fulham first and they turned it down. That's why Chelsea FC were formed, to simply operate the lease of the ground.

Bit of a shame really.

It's a bit like when the police allow a shitty pub in a council estate to stay open, simply to keep all the wankers in the area in the same place, so they know where to find them

Its a shame our original ground was taken over by the Royal Navy to be used as a training ground for them during WW1. The history of which is worth reading on the battles members that went through Crystal Palace trained personnel were involved. Particularly 100 years after the start of the First World War.

Cheers for that, i love history & am very interested in WW1 & especially where football clubs are associated.

Have you read any WW1/football related books?
I can recommend a couple if your interested?

My father in law played in an amateur cup final at Stamford Bridge. 53,000 attendance and lost.

To answer your question, I think 3.

On wiki it says 21 between 1895-1914, don't know how that works out:confused:

edit- replay for one final:p

If it wasn't for those damned Serb's & the Kaiser...

On a side note, I know we last played at The Crystal Palace ground in 1915 but what was the date & who were we playing?
