The answer from Dorking Eagle is almost certainly "yes" but has anyone still got one of the flags that loads of people in the Holmesdale seemed to have?

I had gone straight in the Old Stand enclosure with my dad so didn't see anyone selling them.

To put it into context for our younger fans the highest attendance in the whole league that season would have been 55,000 - 57,000. Man U or Arsenal. No one had a bigger capacity.

Now every fan that was there that night knew the official figure was 51,801 but also that a few thousand got in unofficially. 54,000 was probably a truer attendance. And this was the second division.

We went back to the Wilton Arms afterwards to celebrate, we left about 2am but heard that people were still drinking till 4am..
One of the girls with us that night was Joanna Freeman from Streatham, she moved not long afterwards to the USA. We lost touch but met up last year in north Carolina, she told me it was the last game she attended..
...did she know the capital of Bolivia?

Whenever we play Burnley at home it reminds me of this match and I remembered this evening that I hadnít added myself to this thread. Todayís 2-0 scoreline was particularly apt.

I was standing about halfway back in the old stand enclosure with my Dad, my brother-in-law and a couple of friends. It was clear when we arrived at the ground and saw the queues that it was going to be a huge crowd. I donít recall being nervous about the match and was confident that we would play well and win.

Travelling home afterwards I was sure that we had the foundations of a young team who would challenge for trophies and remain in the first division for years to come. A few years later I had learned as a Palace fan not to take anything for granted !

I said that to a mate on Saturday, itís one of the more mundane premier league games we can play, but you sometimes forget that Burnley were part of one of the biggest games in our history!!

And I still canít get my head around it being nearly 40 years ago

It was only about the third or fourth game I had been to, Spring 1979 was a good time for an eleven year old to start supporting Palace. I thought all seasons would be like that one.

I was in the Whitehorse that night for the game. Am I right in thinking that this was the night the dugout collapsed due to the amount of fans jumping up and down on it??

Got in just before kick off - stood at the back of the Holmesdale. Didn't get a proper view of the game until about 20 minutes in. Fantastic scenes at the end. Pandemonium in the streets coming away; couldn't get into a pub until the WG Grace about 2 miles away.
