Chris Armstrong is a player who rarely gets talked about and he has been one of the best strikers at our club

Probably because he didn't really do it in the Premier League, and the drugs ban affected the way people viewed him thereafter. Plus Andy Preece was allegedly signed because of CA, and he is one of the worst players I've seen at Palace.

A fully focussed Armstrong could have helped us establish ourselves in the Premier League a lot earlier. He had just about everything. Pace, power skill, heading ability. Just a pity about the drugs

I think that’s a little harsh. He got 15 PL goals 92/93 despite joining in September, and not really having a recognised striking partner (combination of Cookie and Williams up top)
94/95 was a disaster across the pitch as we had such quality. We all know Noades went back on his word with Liverpool to sign Stewart, and Preece came in from Stockport after coming to the attention of the club from scoring a stunner in the cup, and many felt his addition was also to appease our main main who had been linked with Everton/Leeds after we’d secured the title.
We struggled for goals for large chunks of the 94/95 season and Armstrong’s confidence was shot coupled with his social activities. Armstrong always benefited from a foil/target man to play off, and it was no coincidence his form picked up once Dowie came on board and despite that 8 league goals and 10 cup goals (majority of which were against top flight opposition) I think he'd be the first to admit he could have managed things better, but he was a young lad, and Smith didn't help matters.

Got a "0" rating in the national press once for a home game vs Forest (I think). Worse performance in terms of effort I've ever seen from a Palace player.

I'm with Jasp, CA's top flight return was pretty good

15 first time round, 8 second time round, albeit with 10 in the cup..

Preece was pretty pants, with the turning speed of the QE2, but did have a stellar month when he hit 4 or 5

Spurs paid 4.5 million - a lot of money then.

Spurs fans often rave about how effective the Klinsmann/Sheringham partnership was, few seem to remember that Armstrong/Sheringham scored more goals as a duo in 95/96, even if it did take Chrissy 10 games to get off the mark.

Can't see it being reported anywhere, but I've been told that CA was reportedly picked up again at the weekend for possessing a plethora of drugs

A 'pity' is something unfortunate that happens to someone. When someone compromises their life through their choices, it's not a 'pity,' it's a deserved consequence. He blew away his talent and his lack of goals sunk us under Alan Smith. Cheers for the one championship season before snorting us to relegation and then f*cking off to Spurs, Chris.

A tad extreme IMO. Armstrong always struck me as a confidence based player, and the whole team struggled for goals for much of 94/95. Armstrong was (and I'm guessing still is) a naturally reserved guy and struggled the intrusion that came with his stock rising. You're also forgetting how well he did for us in 92/93.
I'll grant you the way he left wasn't great (just look at his reaction to his goal at home to West Ham) but Smith didn't help matters.
