Thanks for sharing! Interesting George Petchey and Malcolm Allison around at the same time.

Yeah, some good old links there. 200 for player! Wonder what cut his agent got? :D

George Petchey became a great servant to Palace. Started as an inside forward and then dropped back to left half (attacking midfield in current jargon) Len Choules featured at right back developed into a terrific centre half. He's pictured on the right side of the bus with his slumbering teammates on the left.

Didn't Big Mal sack him? George then made his way to the Palace retirement home across the water (aka Leyton Orient). Sad to see him go. He never let us down in all the time he was here.

(Sorry to high-jack the original thread)

George Petchey left Palace to become Orient manager July 1971 signed many Palace players for them between then until August 1977 when he was sacked just after the start of the season. He went to Millwall Jan 1978.

Thanks for that - got my timeline a bit wrong there
