Today was the first time we have won at Stamford bridge since March 1982, I was there that night, and remember Jerry Murphy match winning free kick. Was wondering who else went that night and what are there memory's .

I had in my head it was 2-1 and David Price scored? That must be nonsense.

I'm pretty sure I was (used to go to all our games at Chelsea), but only vaguely remember it. I do remember the away terrace was so far from the pitch, it was a pretty poor view.

I was there with my Dad. First evening away game. Sat in the old stand opposite their new 3 tier stand. Can't remember much other than being amazed we won and aching to get to school to wind up my Chelsea mates. How can that be 33 years ago.

Through fences too. Stamford bridge used to be a horrible dive

I was fourteen and a half miles up in the West Stand for that one, seeing what looked like Gary Locke volley in a beauty. Then 7 and a half miles away in the away enclosure when David Whyte should have beat them 12-0 on his own many years later. Other than that, SB was always a very unhappy hunting ground over the years.

Not sure it should be referred to that in the past tense!!

Remember even when we were great in December 1990 and won every game bar one that month it was the Chelsea game being the only blot on the copybook, despite Thorny putting us 1-0 up.

Scorers in the 2-1 win in 82 were Kevin Mabbutt and Jerry Murphy.

The side included Barron, Hinshelwood, Boulter, Gilbert, Wicks, Cannon, Langley, and Giles (missing one, can't remember who, was it Vince?). The CPFC Complete record by Ian King has Cannon wearing the No 9 shirt, so God knows where he played, doesn't look like the defence.

That side is the missing link between the Division One days and the dark ages of the mid 80s. Some quality players and some absolute gash.

Kember was the manager.

I stood in the Shed incognito aged 19. Recognised loads of Palace in there, Think it was a night game.
Contrast to yesterday, Singing " we're gonna win the league " songs in their pub post match.
Not everything about modern football is bad.

It was Neil Smillie (wearing No.8)

I thought it was Feb '82. It was a miserable rainy Tuesday evening, we were 2-0 up at half time and it ended 2-1. I was pretty pleased we were locked in for 30-40 minutes afterwards. The Bridge was in a mess in those days.

West stand their main one? If so we too was in the top tier as was plenty of Palace for the 2-2:p.

Yeah, I remember being held back for ages afterwards, although no one was complaining! In those days, they held you in the ground for a short while and then walked you down the back of the West Stand when it was cleared and then held you there for longer. They then held you yet again down by the main road while they got Chelsea back into the pubs and checked that none of them were hiding anywhere! They still managed to infiltrate the escort though on the short walk back to Fulham Broadway. Those were the days!

That used to be the trick in those days, stand in the 'home' end to avoid any hassle! Used to be the same at the Old Den, when you would look round in the Cold Blow Lane End and see dozens of Palace faces you knew standing with Millwall mates!

Remember the old British Airways jingle of the time "We'll take more care of you" and the scum Chelsea fans singing "who's that up a tree?" to Vince.

Great when he scored! But had to celebrate without jumping around, which was kind of tough. Bit different last Saturday when Sako and Wardy scored!

There were a lot more there in the North Stand that game later on in the 80s when it was 1-1 in the second division. Someone started singing we hate Chelsea but were hushed up because it wasn't worth the bother. None of it was as funny as that second cup replay at the Bridge v Brighton when Mullery had his tantrum at the Palace fans.

Yes, was there that night. Small Palace following to watch a match between two poor sides, with virtually no atmosphere in the away end. Remember being kept in for ages back in those days at Chelsea.

I was there as well and I wish I had been there on Saturday too. Funnily enough in those days when we were utter shite I felt almost, almost the same feeling. But in those days we weren't 11 places above them in the Premier League.

Remember getting wet the difference between winning there sat going in bar after without Chelsea trying to kick my head in 80 s at Stamford bridge was very different must have been the longest walk to a away terrace once in ground

This is how I remember it too, it was a re-arranged fixture played in March 1982, the first game must have been snowed off.

We'd lost 0-1 at QPR a couple of weeks before on March 6th in the FA Cup where the headline was the pitch invasion by hundreds of Palace after Clive Allen scored and ran down our end with the 2 fingered salute.

Was it Jerry Murphy's last goal for us..? Think he went to Chelsea quite soon after..?

I was there. I also have a memory of what might have been the following season when we were winning 2-0 and drew 2-2

Just checked. That was 83/84. Chelsea finished top. So that was not too shabby...

I went to this, ended up in the old shed because we had a mad dash from the station to get in and it was kicking off outside the away turnstiles, didn't enjoy it though because we obviously had to keep our mouths shut and couldn't celebrate!!:hmph:

Nowadays the Chelsea fans keep their mouths shut and don't celebrate.:rolleyes:

I was there in 82, but not in 2015, not paying 50 odd quid to them!
