I've never been so nervous before or during a game then that day at Hillsborough. I just thought that if we were relegated then any interested parties
would have less of a reason to buy a League 1 club that didn't own it's own ground. Thank Doog for CPFC2010, the club is finally going in the right direction.

I don't think Janet has forgiven me for saying, just after Ambrose's goal - of course, you know we'll let one in with five minutes to go just to make it tense.

Remember on the train home our group just sat there in almost stunned silence, now I know when they talk about 'emotional relief'!

Similarly on the coach home, it was really quiet. I think every Palace fan there that day had shouted, cheered and chanted more than they ever had, we just had nothing left by the time the journey home came around.

I've watched the highlights hundreds of times, but Ambrose's goal still gets me. Absolutely amazing, what a day it was.

What a day

I don't think winning the league will even top it for me

The fact that after Warnock left, everyone had wrote us off,
the fact that players were giving their all despite not even knowing that they were going to get paid,
the fact that we had 10 hard earned points stolen from us

We defied all the odds, and stayed up. Never have club and fans been closer

That moment when the final whistle went, I jumped up on my seat, arms aloft with 5,500 other palace fans going mental, Derry & the boys running towards us, that's the closest I've ever been to crying at a football match

Still gives me a lump in my throat just thinking about it

What a day

My mate text me saying he'd been having a singsong with Paddy, Derry & Matt Lawrence in a service station. I didn't believe him till this video on YouTube cropped up that someone had filmed.

I still remember Stern John's shot that hit the post and rolled across the line. You couldn't possibly have written a more nerve-wracking script than that game turned out to be.

Great post.

We could win the league by miles with Brighton, Millwall and Charlton all getting relegated next season, doing the double over them all in the process, but nothing will ever top that day.

Getting up at 5 in the morning, for only one of two occasions supporting Palace when I knew that performance didn't matter as the players would make sure they would do everything possible (Man U being the other), going down to Selhurst in the darkness to get the coach filled with quiet Palace fans who were all, like myself, completely bricking it.

Getting off the coach what seemed like miles away from the ground and walking through loads of their fans, singing Pride of South London, for once knowing that there were two sides to this - Palace and Sheffield Wednesday. Everybody there had a choice to make, there were no split loyalties, everyone was together as one.

Wondering how Butterfield wasn't fouled, and then laughing at Leon Clarke for breaking his foot in celebration.

Singing "Come on Palace", more in hope than expectation, louder than it has ever been sung before or since. Watching Scannell literally a second later cut back to Ambrose whose knee slide is quite possibly the most beautiful thing.

Being certain Stern John had scored. Hating him when he hadn't.

Watching Paddy head out for a corner, shitting ourselves. Everybody saying "typical Palace, they're gonna score from this now" and then seeing Paddy running away screaming and shouting, about 5 seconds before it dawned on us it was all over.

Stopping at the service station on the way back. Those tired faces on the bus, people being quiet, it all suddenly burst into life. Seeing Palace fans who had never before met or seen each other hugging each other and singing together.

Getting home and knowing that while on the pitch the job was complete, there was a long way to go off it.

Nothing will ever top that day. Players, fans and staff were at one from that day in a way that any other football club never will be.

Days like this remind you how lucky we all are to be fans of the greatest football club on earth.
