Armstrong was possibly the best striker we've had in the last 30 years - only Wright compares really.

Murray not even close especially when it comes to top flight football. Murray has that flat track bully feel about him.

the "five alive" 5-1 win at home to Pompey was at the end of August. Southend was just before Easter from memory. Midweek affair where we took over the town for the day.

There was an evening game away to Southend in our promotion season, Armstrong scored a tap in at our end, cant remember who scored at the other - none of us could see it, bit murky, terrible lights and low terrace - fans didn't realise we had scored until we saw the players celebrating.

Not convinced that just because we paid so much money it makes him a top stiker in the red and blue. All the others have scored more goals with their feet and have made goals out of nothing. Benteke hasn't really shown that - his best goal for us doesn't beat a top Armstrong header or what Freedman did at Stockport.
Benteke was the one that I really struggled with.

A player of his abilities should probably be further up that list but we have yet to see him ripping up any trees in a palace shirt.

Middlesbrough away to clinch promotion was one of the highlights of supporting Palace for me.

Pissed as a fart, waking up at the end of our street at 8am, by some old woman prodding me with an umbrella, will always live long in the memory.

Yes. In terms of talent, he really was that good. But he lacked the application to go with it, and because of that, he could reasonably be described as a wasted talent despite having a good top flight career.

Which ironically, is why I remember Murray's time here with much more fondness. We went down in '95 largely because a number of our better players simply couldn't be bothered. Armstrong was probably the most guilty of all in that regard, and that undoubtedly colours the way i see him.

Murray however always struck me as a player who recognised the opportunities that came his way relatively late in his career, and was determined not to let them slip. That creates a very different impression, and is why despite not being anything like the player Armstrong was, I'd consider him far more of a "Palace legend".

Armstrong. It isn't even a debate

Armstrong scored with his head, was excellent with both feet, as quick as most strikers we have had and stronger than most.

He would be bloody perfect in modern sole centre forward football

Good in the air, great touch, quick and with a ferocious shot.
