20 years....really, it's been 20 years?!!

I remember it so clearly, and celebrating with such relief afterwards.

Having lost at the end of the previous final, that whole match was hard to enjoy until that one moment...and then we all went nuts!

fecking dull game, the Palace end upped the chanting with about 10 minutes to go, still think that turned the game our way.

The second time I cried at Wembley..... The first was Abide with Me 1990. The game just marked the end of the first battle following a heart attack. The first game after it was the previous seasons Final and despite the shin it was one of the few games where just being there meant so much.
A year then spent battling back to fitness despite a couple of set backs, getting back to work, travelling to games.
I thought the Final meant another day out another being there more important. At the final whistle I just cried my eyes out we were back in the top flight I was back. In some respects its one of my top 5 games ever.

Probably the best atmosphere ever at a palace game away from selhurst especially that last ten minutes it's like we sucked the ball in.

Actually felt sorry for the Sheffield united fans outside afterwards with what happened with us a year before.

Great party at the Clifton that night. When it actually was a decent pub

What a day

Never, ever experienced such a 10 minute high, after the Hopkin curler. Absolute euphoric pandemonium broke out all around us.....total strangers embracing like long lost relatives on Pogo sticks.
And the memory of Claridge's shinned fluke 12 months earlier consigned to the trash can.
Unforgettable...

My partners first ever Palace game, and she enjoyed it so much (especially the level of noise from the support) she became hooked on Palace (even though she's still got a soft spot for Burnley).

We lived near Epping at the time, but on the day had to visit family at Stanmore so she convinced me to get the tube from there - unfortunately, Sheffield United had run a whole convoy of coaches to Stanmore, from where they caught the tube as well, avoiding the obvious crush back to London. I rocked up in my Palace shirt and for a few moments, from the looks we were getting, I seriously thought I was going to get pasted, but the United fans were terrific and in the car park after the game were saying 'well done, good luck next season'.

I generally hate play off matches, I get so tense and wound up before and during them that I never really enjoyed any that I've been to, but that last few minutes and the hour after the final whistle were among the best moments in my time supporting the club.

It was a full game. I remember dean Gordon coming over to the palace fans when he took a throw in with about 15 mins to go trying to get everyone going.

It's amazing how vivid the memory still is of that day. When the ball came back out to hopkin I remember thinking to myself that he just needed to put the ball back in the danger area and don't shoot! Shows how much I knew!!

If you could draw a line with a ruler from the ball on Hopkin's boot, through where it finished in the net right up to the top of the non tunnel end at the old Wembley, that line would end with me.

I remember watching the ball coming straight towards us in slow motion. I could see it was going in from about half way. Great day

And that kit

I missed being there in person. The next day was my last exam at uni at 9am, I just couldn't risk it. Watched it in the student union, no other palace present...
Still feels like yesterday, 20 years since I finished uni, feel old.

Will never have a better wembley trip than that, the old stadium, wembley way a mass of colour in the sunshine, not a confidence but a feeling that due to the pain the year before, this one would be different, then that goal. Amazing

I remember the first leg of the semi so clearly. I can barely recall a thing about the final bar the winner and the fact the guys that ran my local chip shop were in the row in front.
