Researching is proving a lot of fun but I will naturally miss stuff so please feel free to pull me up if I have missed anything worthwhile.

Here is today's article

Funnily enough by mid-Sept we were bottom!

Gotta love those early league tables.

Like last season when we went from bottom to 8th in 6 days!

Today we have our last ever win against Shrewsbury, a Clinton Morrison brace in a 4-1 win over Stockport and an opening day 3-2 loss to Watford (followed by a massive barney on here about Freedman)

Palace score 9, a spanking for Millwall, Edgar Davids signs and Mackay and Moody talk "gay snakes and falsies" as they commit themselves to the football scrapheap.

26 August 1989 - Palace 0 Coventry City 1

First time I ever heard the ground as one sing 'The referee's a w*nker'

Brian Hill was a joke that day. Coventry should have written to the Football League and apologised for stealing the three points off us that day and donated them to us.

13th September
1974 at Southend and a remarkable crowd of 17,394 turn up at Roots Hall to see Palace win 1-0 with Peter Taylor playing his first match back at his old club. Depending on who you believe, there was anything from 2,000 to 22,000 Palace fans in attendance. What is certain is that a Friday night kick-off in the quiet Essex resort guaranteed that most people who were there can't remember very much about it.

In 1977 it was a League Cup 2nd Round replay at The Dell. After a dull 0-0 draw at Selhurst this match is well into stoppage time with Southampton leading 2-1 when Palace are awarded a penalty. After the inevitable complaints and general faffing about, all remaining time has passed and according to the laws of the game, the penalty will be the last kick of the game. It seems that half the players were unaware of this let alone the crowd as Jeff Bourne stepped up to take the spot kick. Southampton's keeper (Wells?) saved but George Graham (yes, that one) followed up to bury what looked like the equalizer. Palace fans and players celebrated until the ref ruined our fun by pointing out that the game ended the second their keeper touched the ball so Southampton went through. To this day, some Palace fans claim that they left the ground unaware of the correct score although the combination of an evening kick-off and the sea air probably had a lot to do with it (see above).

It's 1980 and Palace are back in the top flight. It's just over 2 weeks before the anniversary of one of Palace's finest moments: a 4-1 win against Ipswich that saw Palace go top of the 1st Division for the first and only time in our history. By co-incidence, this afternoon sees Bobby Robson (yes, that one) bring his Ipswich team back to Selhurst. They would finish the season as UEFA Cup winners so they were a half decent outfit. With 2 points from the first 5 matches and feeling cheated after the stanchion (a word bequeathed to the English language by Jimmy Hill on Match of the Day) had robbed us of a perfectly good goal at Coventry the previous week we turned in a disinterested performance and were inevitably beaten 1-2. By some horrible symmetry, the defeat condemned us to last place from which we barely rose for the rest of the season, finishing 16 points from safety; something of an achievement in the days of 2 points for a win.

1986 and we'd started the season with 4 wins from the first 5, our best start to the season in God knows how long. It was Coppell's 3rd season and the word was out on the streets of South London. Ian Wright and Andy Gray were already in the team, Mark Bright would arrive less than 2 months later with a young John Salako due to make his debut in the new year. Our first 2 home games had attracted 6,864 and 6,601 but with Palace in their highest position for many seasons and the mighty(ish) Sheffield United in town surely the missing thousands would flock back to witness this exciting renaissance and those previous crowds would be eclipsed. Well we smashed the 7K barrier; 3 more than 7K to be precise at 7,003 and needless to say the missing dozens went home underwhelmed after the inevitable 1-2 defeat.

In 1997 Chelsea came to town and it's Palace who apparently had the most famous continental superstar in their team for a change, namely Attilio Lombardo. Unfortunately we also had Neil Emblen, Itzhik Zohar and Carl Veart. Chelsea had Ruud Gullit in the dugout and easily won 3-0 thanks to goals from LeSaux, LeBoeuf and LeMarkHughes.

More recently we've had a 2-3 defeat at Reading in 2005, our first season after relegation under Dowie. Andy Johnson got kicked out of the game so much that it put him out of action for 2 months. At the time it felt like our season was over although it didn't appear to have too drastic an effect on results. In 2011 we beat Wigan, then a Premiership side, at home in the 2nd round of the League Cup with our old friend Ben Watson scoring for Wigan who also fielded a J.McArthur in midfield. That campaign would progress excitingly before petering out in a mind-numbingly negative and insipid capitulation in the semi-final at Cardiff. 3 years later and it's Neil Warnock's first home match of his second spell against Burnley. A pretty non-descript 0-0 draw until the last minute when Burnley are awarded a penalty. Cometh the hour, cometh the man and Julian Speroni pulls off a remarkable save to secure a valuable draw. Whatever happened to him?

And that's 13th September in my time as a Palace fan. I'll look another one up later. Much later.

Three years ago today we beat Charlton at the Valley after an awful start to the season. It was the win after which Dougie had his 8 (?) match unbeaten run.

Dougie got tempted away by Bolton, Palace got Holloway, and we've gone rapidly upwards ever since!!!

Thanks Charlton.
