Then I got on the tube and there was some IRA bomb scare thing and we were held in the tunnel for about an hour. So I didn't even get home early.

What year was this?
I felt the same - Norwich had gone there and won 4-2 after being 2-0 down so it wasn't an impossible dream.

Ended up in the home end.....four seats away from the Cup tied Chris Armstrong. Spent a while wondering how I'd react when we scored given I was surrounded by Arsenal fans......but PAlace never gave me the chance to find out.

The One More Point book is underway....and only 12 years late. This will be a book about not just One More Point but a look at all fanzines and their impact. It will look at what it was like being a Palace fan and football fan back in the 80s/90s. If you have comments, memories or just to remind me some (most likely drunken) incident back in the day then please PM me. And if you can think of a decent title then please step right up!
