5 Years ago today.Palace 1 Cardiff 0 League Cup Semi Final 1st Leg 10.1.2012.

5 Years ago today! An Anthony Gardner header into the net at the Whitehorse lane end,on the stroke of half time,gave us a 1-0 win over Cardiff in the 1st Leg of the League Cup Semi Final & put us the closest we've ever got to making the Wembley final of this competition.

Anyone remember anything of the actual game? due to alcohol consumption,the pain of penaltys in the 2nd leg i've forgotten anything specific about the game itself!

Only 2 things stand out for me from that night,the 1st being the HF banner with "Next Stop Wembley Park" with the tubesign on,which I thought was a great touch

Finally the other thing was at East Croydon station afterwards,where I bumped into Jermaine Easters Dad! Who is a spitting image of Samuel L Jackson!

He was even wearing a Black Kangol hat,which Samuel L Jackson has been seen wearing on occassions,to which I couldnt help but say to him "Snakes on a Motherf*cking plane!" To which he shouted it back to me

Apparently he owns/runs a nightclub in Wales which he gave me a card for which I still have to this day,nice bloke,didnt have the heart to say that his boy was a shit Striker though!

I was there, I remember that much. I was probably pissed as it was a semi final and an evening match. I recall the goal, but like you, that's it.

I remember the 2nd leg better although I only watched it on TV. Quite possibly the most negative and tedious performance, devoid of any ambition to score that I've ever witnessed from any team, let alone Palace.

It was like one of those World Cup games from the 70s or 80s when an African country found themselves level against a European country and didn't just park the bus but played with all 11 players behind the ball, constantly back-passing to the keeper. Part of me hoped we'd lose the penalty shoot-out.

Great atmosphere at SP for the first leg. There is a video on YouTube of the Holmesdale. Worth watching.
As for the second leg, I listened to extra time and pens whilst driving up the M6. Painful.

Watched in in a real grotty Brit bar with Sexyrazor...we werent popular as the local poker school had set up below the tv and they were paranoid that we were staring at them.

One guy shit himself when I gave a "Yes...get in there!" When Gardener scored.

I also remember they had bad beer on tap which made me piss every 20 minutes for about 2 hours when I got home.

It was a ******* dire game. Apart from the Goal I don't really remember much happening. I had to sit on my own as a mate sorted me a ticket for it and after that experience I told myself I will never go to a game on my own again. Felt like a right div with no one to talk to.

Remember the away leg very clearly. The first (home) leg can remember almost nothing bar the HF Wembley Park banner as others have said

I took my wife to that game so had to sit in the Arthur instead of the holmesdale. Remember being more focused on the fans than the game itself. I remember the Heeeeey Darren Ambrose song going on for ages and my wife (Italian) still sings those lyrics if she hears the original hey baby �� and I remember the stadium not being as loud as on the YouTube video

Was at the home game, remember them having most of the play.

Gardener was a classy defender.

The day of my mum's funeral. We put a picture of my mum and a glass of scotch next to the big projector screen in the social club where her wake was in Manchester and we all watched the match. When we had won me and my son took a sip of the scotch each and toasted mum/nan for the win.

I think that Gardener goal was our only shot on target in 210 mins of football. That would've been shocking had we been playing Chelsea not another Championship side. We barely hit the target in the penalty shoot out!

Such a great opportunity missed - just like the FA Cup Final in May. A case of two managers getting carried away with themselves in different ways and over thinking our tactics.

From my perspective, Dougie had squeezed every last bit of enjoyment of watching Palace for me. Apart from his last 8 games after the car park chat, it was 22 months of utter mind numbing football. Totally unnecessary.

Went to both games.

Watching Jonny Parr balloon the last penalty into us in the stands and 20,000 sheepshaggers run on the pitch in celebration after 2 hours of dire football was a completely soul destroying experience.
