Been looking back at what happened in the past on this day since August 9th. Going to do this for an entire calendar year.

Researching is proving a lot of fun but I will naturally miss stuff so please feel free to pull me up if I have missed anything worthwhile.

Here is today's article

http://www.rednbluearmy.co.uk/articles/14-08-15-back-day-august-14th

We've got a 2-0 win against Newcastle, a 3-2 win at Barnsley and Tony Pulis departing.

a 3-2 win at Barnsley

Remember that feeling of disbelief when we reached Sheffield station after the match and the local sports paper informed us that we were in 2nd place! :lux:

Funnily enough by mid-Sept we were bottom!

Gotta love those early league tables.

Like last season when we went from bottom to 8th in 6 days!

First time I ever heard the ground as one sing 'The referee's a w*nker'

Brian Hill was a joke that day. Coventry should have written to the Football League and apologised for stealing the three points off us that day and donated them to us.

13th September
1974 at Southend and a remarkable crowd of 17,394 turn up at Roots Hall to see Palace win 1-0 with Peter Taylor playing his first match back at his old club. Depending on who you believe, there was anything from 2,000 to 22,000 Palace fans in attendance. What is certain is that a Friday night kick-off in the quiet Essex resort guaranteed that most people who were there can't remember very much about it.

In 1977 it was a League Cup 2nd Round replay at The Dell. After a dull 0-0 draw at Selhurst this match is well into stoppage time with Southampton leading 2-1 when Palace are awarded a penalty. After the inevitable complaints and general faffing about, all remaining time has passed and according to the laws of the game, the penalty will be the last kick of the game. It seems that half the players were unaware of this let alone the crowd as Jeff Bourne stepped up to take the spot kick. Southampton's keeper (Wells?) saved but George Graham (yes, that one) followed up to bury what looked like the equalizer. Palace fans and players celebrated until the ref ruined our fun by pointing out that the game ended the second their keeper touched the ball so Southampton went through. To this day, some Palace fans claim that they left the ground unaware of the correct score although the combination of an evening kick-off and the sea air probably had a lot to do with it (see above).

It's 1980 and Palace are back in the top flight. It's just over 2 weeks before the anniversary of one of Palace's finest moments: a 4-1 win against Ipswich that saw Palace go top of the 1st Division for the first and only time in our history. By co-incidence, this afternoon sees Bobby Robson (yes, that one) bring his Ipswich team back to Selhurst. They would finish the season as UEFA Cup winners so they were a half decent outfit. With 2 points from the first 5 matches and feeling cheated after the stanchion (a word bequeathed to the English language by Jimmy Hill on Match of the Day) had robbed us of a perfectly good goal at Coventry the previous week we turned in a disinterested performance and were inevitably beaten 1-2. By some horrible symmetry, the defeat condemned us to last place from which we barely rose for the rest of the season, finishing 16 points from safety; something of an achievement in the days of 2 points for a win.

1986 and we'd started the season with 4 wins from the first 5, our best start to the season in God knows how long. It was Coppell's 3rd season and the word was out on the streets of South London. Ian Wright and Andy Gray were already in the team, Mark Bright would arrive less than 2 months later with a young John Salako due to make his debut in the new year. Our first 2 home games had attracted 6,864 and 6,601 but with Palace in their highest position for many seasons and the mighty(ish) Sheffield United in town surely the missing thousands would flock back to witness this exciting renaissance and those previous crowds would be eclipsed. Well we smashed the 7K barrier; 3 more than 7K to be precise at 7,003 and needless to say the missing dozens went home underwhelmed after the inevitable 1-2 defeat.

In 1997 Chelsea came to town and it's Palace who apparently had the most famous continental superstar in their team for a change, namely Attilio Lombardo. Unfortunately we also had Neil Emblen, Itzhik Zohar and Carl Veart. Chelsea had Ruud Gullit in the dugout and easily won 3-0 thanks to goals from LeSaux, LeBoeuf and LeMarkHughes.

More recently we've had a 2-3 defeat at Reading in 2005, our first season after relegation under Dowie. Andy Johnson got kicked out of the game so much that it put him out of action for 2 months. At the time it felt like our season was over although it didn't appear to have too drastic an effect on results. In 2011 we beat Wigan, then a Premiership side, at home in the 2nd round of the League Cup with our old friend Ben Watson scoring for Wigan who also fielded a J.McArthur in midfield. That campaign would progress excitingly before petering out in a mind-numbingly negative and insipid capitulation in the semi-final at Cardiff. 3 years later and it's Neil Warnock's first home match of his second spell against Burnley. A pretty non-descript 0-0 draw until the last minute when Burnley are awarded a penalty. Cometh the hour, cometh the man and Julian Speroni pulls off a remarkable save to secure a valuable draw. Whatever happened to him?

And that's 13th September in my time as a Palace fan. I'll look another one up later. Much later.

Three years ago today we beat Charlton at the Valley after an awful start to the season. It was the win after which Dougie had his 8 (?) match unbeaten run.

Dougie got tempted away by Bolton, Palace got Holloway, and we've gone rapidly upwards ever since!!!

Thanks Charlton.

Absolutely.
Terrible times.
I remember the 83/84 season in particular. Crowds down to around the 5,000 (and lower) mark.
I recall standing on the terraces in those times thinking that only a short few years earlier we had nearly 60,000 for the Burnley game. The official attendance was 51 odd thousand, can't remember the actual number anymore, but it was nearer 60,000.
A mixture of Noades, the appointment of Mullery and Brian Bason etc saw crowds deplete.

One of my favourite early Palace memories. Crashed it in off the crossbar from 20 + yards just after Ipswich had gone 3-1 up. We then plugged away till Wright equalised at the death if my memory serves me right. Felt very much like a win given how things were going at the time.

I was there. 2-0 up and cruising, both goals to Craven. Looked like being more to come.

Weirdly, Hunter lined up at centre-forward for the kick-off and took the ball in a bee-line for Craven. He made no attempt to get past him, but simply deliberately raked his studs down John's shin, the worst over-the-top foul ever. Astonishingly, even by standards back then, it only warranted a booking. Craven went off maimed, we were unsettled, Leeds-Leeds-Leeds came back for an undeserved 2-2 draw.

Even worse, Hunter apparently admitted it after the game, saying that Craven had already scored two and they could not afford him getting a third! Leeds at their worst. Cloughie had it spot on!!

Next home game was a bit special, though :p

Hope RedNblueArmy1 does not mind ? As it was the day of your birth. Please find attached report of the Tottenham replay. I remember both games the first game on a terrible pitch and Gerry Queen's goal in the replay. He had a great first season. The programme was featured by Ian King in the game last week.

Alan Lee ruined his hero status (for me at least) with a sickening elbow on Mile Jedinak. The fact that he refused to apologise is a disgrace.

Yes and yes. In the first half they tore us to pieces but Berthelin managed to keep them out. Then Gray scored once and forced Henchoz to put it in his own net. Dougie was sent off for an elbow on someone. A bit weird as it was so blatant, he didn't even complain.

Also Feb 17th.

1979. Top of the table clash at The Goldstone. A rare occasion that the Palace support were officially allocated most of the open terrace along the length of the pitch rather than the caged-in corner enclosure. The TV cameras were there (in an era when only 5 or 6 matches were filmed). It was absolutely fecking freezing. I had a cold to start with and was wrapped up with jumper and scarf on parental orders but can clearly remember Palace fans (well, skinheads really) in just Fred Perrys and Harringtons in the sub-arctic temperatures. Unusually we weren't stuffed and came away with a creditable 0-0 draw.

1981. 0-3 midweek defeat at home to Coventry. We were all fully resigned to relegation even at that point so it wasn't a huge shock but despite the procession of defeats, we'd never lost by more than a single goal at home so this one got a bad reaction.

1990. FA Cup 5th Round at home to Rochdale. Their goalie played a blinder but was eventually beaten by Phil Barber. We were pretty poor and no-one fancied a replay as the final whistle approached. Then the ball fell to a Rochdale forward in front of goal. The headlines were all about a great Martyn save but the bloke just fired straight at his legs and really should have buried it. Never mind.

1996. Palace 4-0 Watford. Dave Bassett's second match in charge after a bizarre arrangement with Peter Nicholas & Ray Lewington overseen by Steve Coppell didn't work out to nobody's surprise. I didn't go so can't really comment but 2 goals each for Alex Dyer & Dougie Freedman kick-started a run of 12-3-2 from the next 17 matches that secured 3rd place only for Steve Claridge's spawny bloody shin to ruin it all.

A few non-descript Championship matches of little interest since then which pretty much sums up the first decade of this millenium.

What did he do when he was with us might be a better question?

Wiki ... "Paul Hart is an English football manager and former football defender, who is the Academy Director and Under 21s Manager at Leeds United. "

No an ignorant question. I suggest you check Wiki more closely what he did for us particularly at Sheffield Wednesday.:veryangry

I remember the demonstration against the merger after the game outside the main entrance , the crash barriers were put through the glass doors , probably only 3/400 hundred people there but I think uncle Ron got the message NO MERGER :p

I remember it too.
At the time it seemed like all Noades wanted to do was antagonise us. What with the merger nonsense and appointing Scummery as manager.
I was brought up never to speak ill of the dead but I'll always hate him.

He had trouble reaching the contract because he kept backing into the guy giving him the pen until they were about three feet from the table.
