And my claim to fame was I set next to him on the plane when he came over to join Palace. I was oblivious until I was reading the Mail about what a coup it was to sign him, when I realised who my travelling companion was. Still have the signed paper in one of the boxes in the loft :-)

Last time you told that, admittedly great, story he was sitting in the row in front of you.

It was a long time ago and the old memory is a little hazy, but I remember being at the Phoenix festival with my brother and we saw in the paper that we were in for him but both pretty much dismissed it, we found out we'd signed him at Gillingham (but were we playing Brighton?) and I think it was Chris (Grim Reaper) who told us. Amazing player, and I love the stories that seem to show he still holds us in fond regard

It was Gillingham in a friendly. Some bloke called Akinibiyi scored for them - what happened to him?

As a Sampdoria fan I'd watched Lombardo, Mancini and Vialli etc. win them their only title back in '91 - he'd then gone on to great things at Juventus and here he was signing for PALACE! Truly brilliant signing. Had he not got injured we may have stayed up. Oozed class.

I remember even taking a throw in he was class! The ball was on the ground during one home game but rather than pick it up he stamped on the side of it, creating enough spin for the ball to roll up his leg from the ground into his hands. Only time I've stood and applauded a throw in!

Is it both our last promotions that have seen us lose key players (Hoppo and, yes Julian Gray) before we even started. You need yo significantly strengthen and to be weakened before you even start trying to add quality seriously means playing catch up.

Routledge and Gray were pivotal, with AJ, in going up. If Gray had even produced a fraction of Routledge we'd have stayed up.
Totally agree.

My favourite 'player song' by a mile. Leeds away my highlight. He tore them apart that day. Even the Leeds fans appreciated his class.

I actually remember that. More than most of his goals.

Such a shame we cocked it up that season...the makings of a good side but some very strange transfers before Goldberg ran outta cash..
