Watching the video posted here reminded of what a great match this was.
That team played with such determination,enthusiasm and attitude.
After the first leg no one thought we could do it but the home advantage in the second leg got us through. I was in the Holmesdale and didn't go on the pitch that night like in 79, I was 25 and a little too sensible. We went on to achieve some great Palace firsts after that. The Cup Final,3rd in old Div 1 and Zenith data cup, but this is where it started.
I remember the Blackburn manager being less than gracious after the game but the simple fact was,we wanted it more.
