The corresponding fixture of Palace v Spurs 26 years ago was Nigel Martyns debut and my future brother-in-law was one of the matchday mascots.

And by sheer coincidence guess who was on the cover of the matchday programme ?????? Of course, Alan Pardew :p

Was that the one when Gazza ran on during the warm up and smacked the ball at our new scoreboard?

He had a bad game, flapping all over the place. I seem to recall Gascoigne scoring from a free kick while Nige was leaning against the goalpost arranging his wall!

That was the game at White Hart Lane. Cheating bastard.

Not at all. Like with the Henry incident, the only reason a team has a free kick in the first place is because the other team have broken the rules - make them pay!

Also, while the wall thing might have been at WHL, didn't he still score from a free kick at Selhurst? I do remember Lineker showing his class that day. Great running off the ball.

Certainly scored one from a ridiculously silly Pembo challenge on Gascoigne.

Thorn came in very shortly after this and the result that day would have been in our favour had he been with us. We played well but lacked that reading and calm at the back

Didn't Gascoigne also kick one of the mascots up the arse in front of the old stand. Might have been postman pat.

I was there and after the game got Mark Dennis's autograph outside the ground. He was calling Gazza 'fatty'..

Scored from a free kick with a massive deflection. I think it was Vinny Samways

I remember their goalie making an amazing save in front of the Holmesdale. Couldn't believe it didn't go in
