Whats the lowest Away Followings that have come to Selhurst.....or Stamford Bridge,Brighton,Reading or anyone elses ground...

At Leicester it was usually the Welsh....Wrexham brought about 15 once,Bristol Rovers another poor turn out and Leicester broke open the gate at the top of pen 2 and made to run into pen 1 the away end just for a laugh....both wre between 1978-88....going further back in 1977 we played Middlesboro on New Years day and i doubt there was 20 visiting fans.

Iv'e just been reading a similar thread....at Newcastle Bristol Rovers took 3 fans up to St James....Arsenal took between 50 and 75 up there....

Quite a few fixtures had very small away followings in the early 80s at Palace in the second division. Oldham brought sparse followings; Wrexham had hardly any for the m/w match in 81/82, and Shrewsbury never brought many.

A great story on this in the eagle eye book, they really were the worst team in the whole 4 divisions at the time.

They used about 40 odd players that season most of whom never played for them or indeed anyone else afterwards..

Andy Sinton a notable exception.

They escaped with a draw however and there fans sang we're going to win division 3 next year

They actually went down again!

The programme said there were 32 Palace at a League Cup game in Leeds a few years ago. In reality, that was how many advance tickets were sold. There were about 150-200 on the night.

When we played Bolton at home in the 79/80 season and they scored, not one single person in the ground reacted.

I remember us playing Grimsby in the early 2000s, think it was the one where we were 5-0 up at half time and they had two rows of seats. I don't think there could have been more than about 50 of them

I went to that game and there were so few of them i counted them, and it was about 15. If it was officially 28 there must of been a few taking a piss and getting a burger at the top of the Holmesdale. There was a 'crew' of 6 of them together dressed all the same in those sky blue / dark blue Patrick windcheaters that were around at the time.

They were near the end of their 31 game winless run when they played us. It was on a sunday iirc and i thouht they did well to get anyone there for them, they had really low home gates of around 2-3k anyway

I went to a full members cup tie once when charlton played bradford at selhurst (my excuse is i lived very nearby...) I went in the bradford end and there was abso fooking lutely no one else in there except a small group of about 10-12. The official attendance was about 800 iirc.

Remember there were 37 Carlisle fans in a league game in about 1985. The game only attracted a total of 3774 spectators and the weather was so shocking that all the away fans were moved into the Arthur Wait seats from the open Holmesdale terracing at half time.

Wasn't that game played on a Sunday morning for no apparent reason? Remember about 6 Carlisle fans who sang all game. Given how low the attendance was you could hear them very clearly.

Was this a game where we went 2-0 up in the first 5 minutes, something I don't think I've seen since..

And they pulled a goal back soon afterwards, finished 2-1?

I remember playing Crewe at home in 05/06 and they brought about 50 fans with them. I also remember us playing very well in the first half and then managing to throw away a 1 or 2 goal lead to draw.

The game you're talking about was Oldham which we won 3-0. I know this for a few reasons, mainly that it was my first ever visit to Selhurst plus the newspaper advertised the game as a 1.00 kick off so we got there at 11.30 thinking we were nice and early only to find we we're 2-0 up already (it kicked off at 11am I kid you not!). The attendance was 4,502.

Yep, it was actually 3,744 and finished 1-1 (George Wood saved a penalty but they scored from the rebound). It was so cold and wet that Uncle Ron let fans from the Whitehorse into the Arthur. I think it was either Jan or Feb 86.

I think the 200 of us that went to the FA cup semi final replay at villa park against Man United. Was probably one of the more bizarre feeling low turn outs that i can remember. I still think boycotting was a poor decision although i appreciate why people did.

Whilst searching for information on fa cup semi finals. I came across this that i had never seen before..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crystal_Palace_F.C._(1861))

They played in the fa cup semi finals at kennington oval.

Plenty of mentions if this game on here elsewhere, a real badge of honour for those if us who were there. Carlisle had some guy who always scored against us - Alan Shoulder?

Can't remember Brightons average away following at Leicester but i'll put it out to the lads who've been prominent since the 60's and see what emerges....iv'e been down to Brighton from the early 80's so missed the london skinheads giving ours a hard time,but since iv'e been going we used to take 500 at least midweek and decent followings in Brighton for 3 o clocks.......hint hint...Brighton take please...

Intuition would suggest that this largest of away followings, if it truly ever existed, means that it is not the Palace fans treating the game as a cup final.

What are you on about? I can only think of one time in the last 30 years that you've brought any kind of following to Palace which was the game a few weeks after you poached Warnock when you did sell all your tickets. As for taking liberties....anywhere....again what are you on about? Are you drunk?

You are club about the size of Watford or Reading, both of whom also fail to bring numbers.

I wonder if he was there in 82 when we ran them all across the pitch back into the loft and then ran them all over Shepherd's Bush. Plus I've lost count the amount of times we went in there part of the ground and met no opposition. Stick to Brentford and Fulham there much more in your league.
