For Brazil it is 10; for England it is 9. But for me there is a number that says Crystal Palace as much as a fedora, "Glad All Over" or Sir Steve. Others have had them but everyone knows they're uniquely ours. That number is 11.

Peter Taylor, Vince Hilaire, John Salako, Victor Moses. All great number 11 players who got our blood racing.

I always thought that Palace were number 1.

Graham, Bailey, Rouse, Millington, Glazier, Jackson, Burridge, Wood, Martyn, Kiraly, Speroni, South London, England, Europe, the World, the Universe.

I'll play on a dull Sunday....number 11 has been put forward, but I considered -

1 had Martyn, Burridge, Speroni
4 had Nicholas, Gray, Madden, Southgate
6 had Gilbert, Dann, Thorn, Coleman
7 had Lombardo, Salako
8 had Thomas and AJ
9 had Bright, Dougie, Armstrong
10 had Wright (isn't that enough)

Being a hipster I could pick 17 as it had Michael Hughes and Glenn Murray!

But I'd go for 4 or 6

3 Glenn Pennyfather

Not his usual number but in the 3 games he wore that number there was an average of 6.67 goals per game!! Surely the most entertaining, goal-fuelled run of any player in the history of the world.

An average (as best) player, being played out of position and chaos reigning supreme.

That to me is the Palace number!

Cliff Jackson wore the number 11 shirt for most of his matches. And Tony Taylor wore it quite often. Don Rogers though, he was one of the best. Vince Hilaire, Peter Taylor, Victor Moses, Wilfried Zaha, yes, some great players.

Was McGoldrick wearing 11 when he had his great spell as a sweeper? Add him to the list of 11s if so

I like the way 3 is becoming our number

Number of goals we seem to score in every away game in last year and a half!!
