Didn't Oldham score a couple of goals that were offside aswell? I remember in that last week everything going for them while Palace were hitting brick walls.

I seem to recall we went down with an absurdly high number of points. No one to balme but ourselves that season.

But do recall lots of fans getting on Coppels back for not making good team selection that season !

I think it was Bennett, not Vaesen, but otherwise I agree.

We went down with 49 points that season - the most ever (afaik). More than we had two years later (45) when we went down as fourth bottom, and more points per game than West Ham a few years ago (when they made all the fuss about how unlucky they were given their points total).

I know, ironic isn't it the 2 highest points tally to be relegated & they are both ours.

Anyway, with Palace dead and buried v Arsenal and Oldham holding on at 4-3 v Southampton, it said that Milligan(?) handled in the box in injury time. The ref didnt give it and Oldham got the win that relegated Palace.

Royle said that Milligan admitted the handball after the game, and with penalty king Matthew Le Tissier, Southampton would probably have scored and saved Palace (by the way, Le Tissier scored a hattrick in this defeat).

This seems to be a huge moment in Palace history that I've never heard of, especially as it caused Coppell to resign. I'm aware that Oldham somehow beat title contenders Villa away on the Sunday, and that David James gifted them a win over Liverpool in midweek, but this handball and the very end of the season is the thing that cost us.
I remember listening to the last few minutes on the radio at Highbury after our game had finished & they said Oldham were fortunate not to concede a pen. Just our luck. Also seem to remember Le Tissier going very close to an equaliser in those dying moments too.

I think that 3 of us went in and it was full to the brim of Man U doing the can-can and singing Eric Cantana songs. In my sloshed state I had a moment of clarity and decided that I shouldn't be in here and decided to go home. I headed back to Gravesend and let myself into my flat I had there. Trouble is I had actually moved out of the place about 3 months earlier and was trying to rent it out. I actually should have gone back to Sidcup where I was living with my wife of the time. Took some explaining that one.

One last point.....A guy on the train back to East Croydon much earlier in the day could see I was pretty cut up about the relegation and put his arm around me and said something along the lines of "Don't worry mate. It happens. If you want to support a team like Arsenal or Man U who win every week then you can, but when you support Palace there are ups and downs, but it makes those days when we do do something special.........."Really Special". Think it was only a passing comment, but it stuck with me.
The other 2 being my brother & I.

It was James, I remember listening to that match and my heart sinking.

Definately James, remember listening on the radio & watching the highlights. I can still see him flapping with his stupid blonde hair now.

Gauling isn't the word. I was at a wedding on the day of the famous "lap of honour". Went to the bar and the bartender flashed up the final score. I got really out of it on the strength of our win. Following day, all set for a jolly celebration to watch Villa smash Oldham. Had more drink in a pub and watched in horror as Villa capitulated totally. If this was a straight game, I am a monkey's uncle. How Villa got away with it I'll never know. Saturday of the Arsenal game I stayed away from the action until the final twenty minutes and heard how Southampton were coming back (4-0 or 4-1). All false hope. It should never have happened. It should never have happened that relegation. I wasn't even disappointed just totally shocked out of it. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGH

Absolutely heartbreaking, I remember it was my 13th birthday the day we go sent down by Arsenal, and seeing Wrighty my childhood idol destroy the club I loved was tough to accept. I left highbury in tears.
Such a sad way for Sir Steve’s first spell in charge to end. I still remember returning home from school on the following Thursday to be told to “Coppell’s left” that hurt me more at the time than relegation.

It was a turbulent 12 months
-On/Off transfer saga with “Skip” never really got going in his final season at Palace.
-Paul Williams one and only goal that season came against Palace (Sheff Wed), before joining us a couple of weeks later.
-Points thrown away conceding last minute goals Spurs away, Southampton home etc……
-Missed penalties, Southgate, Mcgoldrick, Salako etc….
-Salako getting injured “again”
-The emergence of Armstrong, the loss of Bright.
-Losing 5-0 at Liverpool, then going on an unbeaten run and Sir SC being names manager of the month for December, only to lose to Hartlepool in the F.A cup to a dubious penalty.
-Some of our best performances were in the cup, Southampton away, Liverpool over the two legs, and of course Chelsea on the wettest night I can remember in SE25.

I've just looked at the league table to remind me - 49 bloody points from 42 games. We only lost 4 more games than we won.
Arsenal who finished, believe it or not, in 10th, were only 7 pts above us.
And the worse thing was that we down on goal difference. Up to the end of March, our goal diff was far superior to that of Oldham.
Then Oldham beat W'Don 6-2 and then soon after, the Dons beat us 4-0 !
A swing of 8 goals - Thats what made the diff.
I remember the day that Oldham won at Villa. I was playing Cricket and as there were quite a few of us Palace fans in the Team and so at the Tea break, I said I would go to my Car and check on the radio, that we were safe !
Heard the score, told the others amd most said 'no probs, we'll be all right'
But I looked at my mate, who I used to go to SP with and said 'I reckon we're down' and he said 'I agree'.
Don't know why, but I just knew then and there that it would end in tears.

Nearly 20 years on and I still find it hard to talk about that day.

All I will say on the matter is I still don't understand why, with Arsenal playing an FA Cup Final the following weekend, we didn't just go out there and kick them off the park. Our players just seemed to stand by and let the day pass them by. If you can use the word 'horrific' to describe a football match, then that's the way I'd describe it.

I don't wanna talk about it anymore....

Once it got to the last game, we were always going to lose.

In fact, I think three was the fewest goals we conceded at Highbury in that spell in the top flight, with us letting in four on all the previous meetings.

We did rather better on our next top flight visit to Highbury, though.

correct me if i'm wrong,
89-90 4-0 defeat
90-91 4-0 defeat
91-92 4-1 defeat, Arsenal were unplayable that day (also lost 4-1 at home)
92-93 3-0 defeat
and also chuck in a 2-0 defeat in the 2nd leg of the fizzy cup that campaign.
Doesn't make for happy reading. I used to dread playing Arsenal.
Think as Bubbs touched upon they had a cup final a week later, and we went down without a wimper, which made it harder to take.
94/95 was a complete surprise, we were our of form. Turned up and got two first half goals from "Salad", Martyn was simply world class that day. Think Wrighty popped up with his 100th goal for Arsenal that day.

The pre match drinking after Highbury was one of the best post London drink ups I have had though.Carnaby st. pubs were full of us and after a few drinks we decided to forget the result and get the singing going.
