View Full Version : Kevin Miller crying at Wembley
29-05-2000, 08:58 PM
Just watched Barnsley lose to Ipswich and Miller (another Fat Boy) crying on the pitch - almost as amusing as the crying Wombles.
probably cheer himself by eating a few dozen pies on the way home

Wasn't it great to see him crying on the Wembley turf, i think his decision earlier in the pre-season have come back to haunt him. I think i can feel a chant of 'Did You Cry At Wembley' towards him next season!!!!!

Couldn't watch the match. How did the other ex-eagles (Bassett included) take defeat?
Harry was noble, Bruce was trying to lift the crowd and Ships was gutted- and evidently so.
Lets face facts for a moment: Miller left Palace after not being paid for two months from a team that was only safe two games from the end of the season to a team that got to wembly. The fat **** will be happier than we are.

Ha ha ha. I'll look forward to throwing pies at fatty next season.

All my Christmas's have come at once! First the Wombles and now Bassett and Miller crash and burn. Marvellous. These voodoo dolls work a treat!
I felt a bit sorry for Shipps and Brucie but the other two can go **** themselves as far as I'm concerned.
I posted a good luck message on an Ipswich site before the game and I'm glad they finally made it BUT after seeing the post-match snippets on the news I'm having second thoughts.
Firstly, I have never seen quite so many sour, miserable faces on fans who have just seen their team win a ripsnorter of a game at Wembley.
And secondly, all they can think of to sing at this sublime moment is "Bye bye, to the Nationwide". What is this obsession that fans have these days with slagging off the league that is their bread and butter, when all is said and done?
Everybody knows they'll be back there sooner rather than later and yet these arrogant chants still get an airing.
It's symptomatic of the all-pervading greed and power-madness that the game is riddled with at the moment.
Charlton singing "we'll never play you again" and now Ipswich, a Nationwide league team through and through, slagging off their own league as they sally forth to do battle with the big-boys for one season.

Looks like we could be in for a Tyke holiday I'm already praying that on the fixture computer throwing Barnsley away followed by Sheffield away or Huddersfield away in the same week.
Mmmmm love that real northern beer God's own brew.

Gooders, we do the same every time we go up.
I noticed the Ipswich banner 'Back where we Belong'. I have heard Palace fans say this and seen it many times written by Palace fans even though we have spent as much of our history in the bottom two divisions. Every club that can draw crords of 15,000+ in the Premiership say the same.
At least one of Ipswich or Charlton will return to the Nationwide with a Southampton, Derby or Leicester??? and then they will be back where they belong. There are about 12 large Premiership sides with one or two potentially large teams in the Nationwide (and I dont mean Blackburn, whos fans think themselves big time but know they were nothing before Mr Walkers millions). The rest of us are in a rotation system for the remaining places, we have had our chances and blown it and hopefully we will have chances again.
You shouldn't snipe at Ipswich/Charlton because we have done the same and will be cocky again given half the chance. We used to assume we would just go back up when we were relegated.

I can only think that this must have to do with where one sits or when one started watching Palace!
I have been a fan for 30 years. Obviously I know loads of Palace fans quite well (lets call it 50 for the sake of argument).
I don't know any of them who think that Palace are a "big club" or too good for the first division.
We'll have to agree to differ, I think.

I personally look upon Palace as a first division outfit, I would much rather sit through a season finishing seventh in the first division than at the foot of the Premiership. I began watching Palace when they had just been promoted from the old fourth division, so being in division one is fine, at least we get to see some evenly contested games with more home wins than losses, well, usually anyway.

Personally, the site of Miller crying at Wembley brought a tear to my eye.

Simon, I thought our last two excursions to the Premier League were jolly good fun.

I listened to the match on Radio 5 and the commentator even described Miller as "the rotund Miller". The weight watchers hasn't worked then?

I have to confess that a smile played across my lips as I watched him come puffing and panting out too late to narrow the angle sufficiently on two of the goals.
I doubt that he can really be blamed for any of them but I also noted his trademark "rooted to the spot" for Stewarts goal.
It's interesting to note that his deficiencies weren't just reserved for when he was playing for us, which is the way it seemed for a while there.

I bet he's looking forward to his next trip to the holmesdale end !
That's why he cried.
Have another pie, Kev.

Why was Kevin Miller Crying ? Had Wembley run out of Hot Dogs again ?
30-05-2000, 09:51 PM
Crying with joy at the payment he will receive for allegedly throwing the game. He may, if certain outragous rumours are to be believed, have had his alleged backhander taken away for the QPR game for making it too obvious.

He was crying because his teamates said lets get our hair shaved to look hard. He being the thicko had his pubes shaved and was itching like mad.

I don't agree Peter.
I have never heard Palace sing "we'll never play you again" to anybody (even Millwall, although in their case it would just be wishful thinking).
Similarly, I can't recall any songs that have "we're so happy to be leaving this league which we're far too good for" as a theme either. In fact, "you can stick your Premier league up your arse!" seems to be our general approach to that particular facet of our yo-yo existence.
I remain a little bit disappointed at what I saw of the Ipswich fans yesterday - they should have been revelling in the moment and they weren't.

Not as bad as the Chelsea fans as I saw at the Conq Hero. The final whistle blew they had just won the FA Cup, looked like someone had died.
I would agree with you Gooders re the Premiership except the main advantage seems to be a longer cup run. My absolute wish is for Palace to win the FA Cup in my lifetime, we are not going to do that in the Nationwide.
31-05-2000, 04:23 AM
Palace are universally hated for their belief that Palace are a much bigger club than they really are, so we are as bad as the rest, if not worse. Well done Ipswich. Have your moment and sing what you like.

I watched the highlights on ITV on the sight of Fat Boy crying as the Palace rejects, sorry Barnsley FC, got beat. The abuse (deserved) dished out to him at Selhurst will stick in my mind for a long time. The entire ground, not just the Holmesdale, standing up and singing 'stand up if you hate Miller' was a fantastic sight, although it did'nt exactly put him off did it?! On the Holmesdale site on a posting about the best atmospheres, someone suggested the Barnsley game as the entire crowd unleased abuse on the tubby keeper.
Another thing, getting back to the 'big club?' debate earlier on in the replies, Palace are a big(ish) club but we will never win the league in the English top division and we will never get 50,000 a wek. In the past it may have happend, it was possible, but now it i not. Only a handful of clubs can afford to buy, sorry win, the Prmierleague and our once potential massive catchment area will be full of Man Utd, Chelsea, Spurs, Liverpool, Arsenal etc fans as Sky TV makes all the games readily available on telly.
We can, however join the 'second division' in the Premier with the likezs of Sunderland, Derby, Leicester, 'Boro, Villa etc.

are we going to carry out our threat and throw pies at the big man next year, then?
