It was often claimed that he was a Palace fan when he was with us. I don't know whether that was club marketing or from the man himself. I think he grew up locally in Streatham or thereabouts. I saw him with a motley crew of hangers-on enjoying the half-time hospitality at that rain-sodden League Cup quarter final against Chelsea in the 90s which was after he'd left us. I couldn't tell who they were supporting, just that they were pretty shit-faced and that you'd give them a wide berth if you didn't know who he was.

How is he shaping up these days? Have the years of boozing taken their toll? Does he still sport the mullet?

One of the hardest or dirtiest players in our history depending on how you look at it.Good player though and a real crowd favourite.

Met him in a bar in Portugal last year. Not footballer slim but in decent nick for his age.

I remember him getting sent off for Birmingham at Selhurst in an FA Cup tie c83. When he played for us I thought we had signed a clogger but he could really play. Very decent LB when he had his head on straight.

He ran half the length of the pitch to try and stick one on Paul Gascoigne - that was good enough!

He used to go to my school in Mitcham (Glyn Hodges and Glen Little went there too). They used to have a framed picture of him up in reception when I was there.

Not sure he was really the best role model to be honest.

Mark from pollards hill he supports millwall

I played Sunday football against his brother on Mitcham Common in the 70's. Mark was only watching the game but still managed to get sent off for verbally abusing the ref!

I remember him at that cup game. We had a corner at the holmesdale end. I was down the front and he was calling everyone a c--t and acting like a lunatic. Liked his football ability in his few games for us but a bit too much of a nutter.

He was a Palace fan when he did this Q&A in Shoot magazine. Some of the other answers are mad.

Favorite drink - Lager
Friendliest away fans - Millwall
After match routine - Go for a drink

Top bloke. Gave Robbie Tobin, Dave Illingworth and myself a lift back from Mitcham training ground after playing in a friendly at Southwick just before Christmas moons ago.

We came back on the team coach. Happy days.

:p

He was playing for us at home against some team I've forgotten and the crowd we're getting restless with our lack of attacking intent and general fanning about with the ball amoungst the defenders . Anyway , he received the ball from our goalie and adjusted his body as to indicate he was passing the ball back to him only for the crowd to go ape shit . He laughed and turned with the ball to play it forward and did a wind up sign above his head .:D

My lasting memory of him was when we played Uxbridge town in a preseason friendly, and some kid was running circles round him and basically taking the piss. Mark got so wound up by this kid, that just before half time when he got the opportunity, he went straight through him, took him clean out, ref went running over and sent him off.
My dad & me where standing by the gate where the players entrance to the pitch was, he came walking over, massive smile on his face and said " that'll teach the smart f***er eh" lol was so funny.

interviewed him once - very decent and knowledgable about both football and cricket - think he would admit that the latter is probably his favourite sport. Think or rather know he caused managers a few problems in his time but always committed for want of a better word

A lot of memories for a guy that played nine times for us. I saw at least two of them - spurs at home and Man utd away. Memorable games, both of them.

v Spurs Gascoigne had flattened someone on the right wing and got booked, I recall Mark Dennis crossing the pitch from left back to double foot flatten Gascoigne moments later. He got booked but today it would've been a red. Brilliant fullback and a nutcase.

I'm sure after that melee he ran towards the Arthur cheering and fist pumping towards the crowd!

I thought he was great.

Yes, I remember that too. Naughty, but for me he has always been a Palace legend. A fine left back too, I think he could have had a lasting career had he wanted to.

I remember him going right the old crisp eating match of the day presenter at selhurst then turn to the crowd and giving a fist pump! Imaging that happening now with all the sky cameras .... ����

Saw him going into the SCG for Australia v England during the cricket World Cup in the early 90's. Memories of beating them in their own backyard in their own World Cup. What a night in Sydney afterwards! Paid for it in the following years mind.
