Oh yes of course! He was a really forlorn figure by that stage. His sparkle seemed to have left him. Like a great old boxing champion flogging himself at the end of his career.

The two saddest days in football for me as a kid were (1) Vince Hilaire leaving Palace and (2) him getting a load of racist abuse at Selhurst when he came back with Pompey. Everyone did it at the time, Palace were no better or worse. Among the happiest days was watching Vince single handedly take apart Leeds Utd circa 1980ish, took on several players then slotted in from a tight angle. Like Wright and Zaha after him, you expected something special whenever he got the ball. Unlike them, he had a certain floating elegance to his style. A bit like Michael Jordan, the top half seemed to stay still as he ran.

Remember him getting sent off in that game. Put their promotion on hold which was amusing

Vince will always be a hero to the Palace fans that saw him play, an exhilariting player who seemed destined for greater things than actually materialised, but still great and cherished memories and evocative of one the most enjoyable eras in my time following Palace.



NB - Just realised, the building you can see outside the Palace Boardroom where Vince is signing his first full professional terms - is Lady Edridge School, roughly where the Fanzone and those houses that are in Wooderson Close are sited now.
Cool! Vince was my first and pretty much only idol, I played left wing as a kid.

In that clip Venables mentioned just coming back from Holland, I think that was the first time I saw Palace play I was born in NL (Dads from Thornton Heath), saw Palace play a local semi pro side, Rijnsburger boys. The only thing I remember from the game is Venables shouted 'give the ref some *******
verbals' to one of our players.


Anyway I want the book!

Didn’t realise Vince was racially abused on his return. . I was at that game and remember the incessant boos he got which saddened me too being my hero and all. I was in the Whitehorse family bit so I guess the more hateful abuse was lost on me. Do remember him being sent off at the end though. Wasn’t it for kicking out at one of our players?

Was at that game, a 6-0 win if I recall correctly.

At one of the matches in Holland, the legendary Wiz, who can still be seen regularly at Palace away games, ran from behind the goal to clear a certain Dave Swindlehurst goal - may have been the same game!

Eagle Eye mention IIRC that Phil Holder wasn't best pleased as I think winning away by 7 might have been a club record!
