Things You Miss About Selhurst/Fort Neef..

...Bang 'ole etc; since you moved away.
If you ever did indeed.

For me it will always be Melfort Road Fish Bar.
Best fish and chips you could ever have.

Your turn.

Just being able to go to the Palace really.

I was born and lived in Thornton Heath (the Pond end) for nearly 30 years but can’t for the life of me think of anything else I miss. Good friends and family have long since moved...

When I pass through on the odd occasion it feels very odd. Even though it kind of looks like the place I remember it’s like it’s some cheaply made replica. I don’t have any sentimental connection to the place whatsoever other than when I go to Selhurst Park.

Spot on.
Pulis's first home game in charge for us was v West Ham I think. Early December and an evening game.
Me and the boy were well early getting there so to kill time I drove us to my 2nd ever home after bang 'ole - Melfort Road.
I stopped outside to show him our old house but it seemed so small to me.
We then drove around to fort neef rec and that wasn't as big as I remembered it either.

Melfort Road fish bar was as good as ever though.

My main park as a kid was Mayfield Park just by Croydon Athletic’s stadium. Shi*ty little park really but to me and my mates having a kick about, it felt like Wembley. I did train at the Rec for a couple of years when I played for a Sunday league junior side called Alpha - Dean Gordon played for them in his pre teenage years.

Nothing. I was 3 when I moved away and don’t remember living there at all.

Not many pubs left although the Jamaica Experience on the corner looks a good restaurant.

I used to live on Ross Road so could see the ground from my bedroom window, I remember as a kid trying not to go to sleep until the flood lights had gone off on evening games. Problem is that kind of nostalgia masks the awful parking and dickhead away fans on match days.

Rest of the list would be:

Family
Grange Park
George's Barbers on Beulah Road
Melfort Fish & Chips
& Emek Kebab - Because trying to get a good kebab in Nottingham is near impossible.

I did notice on Saturday that the flats above the shops opposite what was Fast Eddies café (ie continuing on from the Price George) have had a pastel paint job along the long terrace. Looked very nice. Shame that the shops underneath have such garish signage and shopfronts. Lipstick on a pig TBH

the 3 pubs at the Pond. All of them different with their own personality. But best of all, all of them full of barroom characters.

Yes, totally.

Are they all still there? I heard the Horseshoe had or is being closed down.

Spent hours over the Rec all day and every day as a kid. Never expected to hear " Bang Ole" on the BBS . The pond when I was a kid was exactly that not some horticultural make over.

When you move away you take your memories with you but I would never want to go back.
