What is the most trouble you have gotten into watching palace (at a game or on Tv) mine are:

Kicked out of the Reebok stadium for standing up

Being threatened to be locked out of the Ricoh arena boxing day for drinking beer in the stands (ran up with it for the penalty which speroni saved)

Fighting at wolves away (got jumped) Bruce was manager and kirovsky scored the winner to take us top

Fight at Norwich away ( nothing special, he gave It, I decked him)

The best!!!!! Call in sick for work to watch Leicester away in the cup (won 3-0 at filbert street with a rubens stunner) my boss (who knew I went to every palace game) read the paper in the morning and saw the report of the game. Asked me how it was and I told him it was great. He asked me to work Saturday instead otherwise I was fired. I told home I couldn't because we had Sheffield Wed at home so he fired me (I was 17 and without responsibilities)

What are yours?

2 come to mind. Firstly the home game with Birmingham circa 86/88 where I broke my wife's rib whilst celebrating a goal by lifting her up, strangely now ex mrs.
Being told off by my 75 year old mum for using the C word when Clattenc... denied us the wickham advantage in the cup final. This was in a crowded club in south Norwood, spent 10 mins on the naughty step.

Was that you in the first half? Must had been 2001? Clinton scored twice in the last 2 mins to come back to 3-3. First half was so bad I counted our away support in the lower tier behind the goal. 150? Minus one.

Running back in the AW celebrating another Wright goal, I had left think the match abandoned, only to find hoards of Brum in the enclosure I'd been standing in.
Was only 14yo, and thankfully a copper and a headlock stopped my life passing before my eyes.

Also spent the whole of the away 'Boro Championship winning game with a thug in dark glasses staring at me making slitting throat actions. Thankfully we stayed celebrating so long I had no need to meet the fella post match.

I still remember a group of Palace fans running away and leaving a young Palace fan to get kicked in the head and beaten by one Millwall fan at the top of Holmesdale Road, believe it or not in front of a steward who didn't want to know.

Always a horrible atmosphere against Millwall.

Mine was 6 September 1975 at Cardiff. I came without a ticket and ended up in the away end with my best mate. All was well until David Kemp scored the only goal of the game from one yard out in the 90th minute and my mate and I forgot where we were. Frankly I was lucky to escape with a few bruises and a very sore shin.

Back in the late 70s I'd been working on the removals on the Saturday morning and went straight to the away match. I still had my steel toe caps on (as you had to at work). The police made me take my laces off and so I waited for the match to start and then picked them off from where they had been tied.

Admittedly i might've resisted arrest a little bit ;) :supergrin:

Getting thrown out at loftus rd but got back in , in the upper tier.

Had a copper telling me they were going to get me next at Highbury as the plod were trying to grab this big geezer in the packed away end and nearly did when the crowd serged forward but i could see they was going to get him so grabbed the bloke and pulled back from the plod who went mental ��

Wimbledon v Palace August 2003. No way was I giving that club money and I bribed the doorman a tenner to get in the main stand with about the 1000 fans Wimbledon had left (half the stand was closed too) and various daytrippers. After keeping quiet as we went 1 down, in the second half we scored 2 in quick succession and the second I was down the front going mental. This upset some Wimbledon and I was escorted from the premises whilst giving the wanker sign to their fans. Outside the ground the police asked for my name and address so I gave my brothers one, it checked out and I was free to go :D

Remember it well, as I'm sure will the twenty or so Palace that had to take that long walk back to the station with the whole Cardiff mob intent on causing grievous. Still don't know how we made it over that bridge alive, with a police escort of about four old bill, halfheartedly protecting us from about two hundred seething Welshmen. Sort of went off David Kemp a little after that.

In 1981 final game of the season at Maine Rd, us relegated, Man City playing in the FA cup final a week later, I was a lone Palace voice in the Kippax. We scored (game ended 1-1) I forgot where I was and jumped in the air to celebrate. On my way down I thought oh shit.

Other than my Man City supporting mates chanting 'Theres only one cockney bastard' I came out of it unscathed, no warrior type looks in my direction, nothing. I was totally ignored. The Bastards. I could have had a really good post to contribute to this thread if they had kicked the shit of me.

Got to Hull station with a load of other Palace after the game and one was on about stealing a train as he was a train driver :) We all got off at Peterborough on the way home for more drinks where a hotel got rearranged and also bumped into some Chelsea in the city centre. Think but not 100% sure that was the game when Alex Dyer scored and had a blinder against us so we then went on to buy him

There was also a home match against Wimbledon where we was getting beaten as we usually did by them and their twatty fans were really rubbing it in. Fuelled by a few beers drank before the game me and my mate Tony decided to pop into their end towards the end of the game to exchange a few words :)

Some quite serious disorder at that hull game :D, we stood chance of play offs and took loads up there . It also went off with Boro at Doncaster station afterwards and iircc we coped a ban off British rail for wrecking the train on way back:supergrin:.

I got to that Hull game a little early, and there weren't that many Palace there for such an important game. But if I recall correctly, the station must have been very close to the away end, because I remember the train arriving absolutely heaving with Palace fans hanging out of the windows with scarves and flags, making a ton of noise. Quite a sight, the away end filled up in no time!

After a 2-2 draw at Everton in the early 90s I ended up in a pub near Goodison with a Palace fan I'd met on the train up there. About an hour or so after the game it had pretty much emptied out and he said something about the Zenith Cup Final that one of the remaining Everton fans took offence to. The Everton fan ran behind the bar and started throwing pint glasses across the pub at the two of us. I was unscathed, but the other guy had his hand cut open when knocking a glass away just before it hit him in the face. A couple of other Everton fans dragged the bloke away and paid for our cab back to Lime Street.

We missed the special train back and ended up getting free drinks all night in the station bar, with various Scousers asking what had happened to his now bandaged hand and buying us beers to prove they 'weren't all like that".

Finally got the last train back to London. Some other Palace fans had got an Indian takeaway in and shared some with us. No cutlery of course, so it was a case if eating it with our hands. They got off at Crewe and, as a parting shot, one of them threw a handful of curry at the train window.

Minutes later the ticket inspector walked down and saw curry all over the window and two drunk Palace fans with curry all over their fingers. He had the train stopped in the middle of nowhere ( in a field, not at a station) and told us to get off. After a heated debate a girl sitting nearby told him we were not the culprits. She later said she hadn't got a clue who had done it and just wanted to get home.

I had never met the other Palace fan before and never have since, but maybe he will see this and remember it. An eventful away trip!

Standing on a freezing cold terrace in my socks at Luton, after getting my steel toe caps confiscated by the OB after one stood on my boots outside. They were the ones that had the steel covered . Had to que after the match along with others to get them back from a kiosk .

Running up to a Wolves coach outside Thornton Heath station after the match and pretending to throw something at it, and laughing as the occupants on board all ducked. They then all laughed at me as I was grabbed by a policeman from behind and taken into a room inside the station and grilled what I was doing. Couldn't do anything as I hadn't thrown anything, but they were well pissed off.

Huddersfield home, Jan 1975, first game for a while following appendix removal, ejected from holmesdale.

Start game at the bottom of holmesdale, mate suggest we join clappers at top. Second half and game boring. I spot copper in the crowd about dozen steps down. I start to show off by throwing of chewing gum paper-bouncing off helmet much to amusement of older boys. This carried on for about a dozen times, copper getting more annoyed and in my excitement i don't spot another copper moving into crowd behind me. He spots what i am doing and pulls me out.

Taken to white police hut at back of holmesdale. Copper takes down particulars and expresses surprise at age.

He then asks me to turn out pockets. Out of white fake imitation fur lined jacket, comes holiday wallet. Copper accuses me of pick-pocketing. I explain reason for wallet, reason given so lame he believes me.

Taken to turnstiles, where I am informed i am about to be ejected and told to climb over turnstile. I protest citing recent operation but to no avail and i climb over.

I walk home and inform mum and dad, expecting at least a belt and/or a telling off.

Instead mum rings up coppers and gives them an ear full for making me climb the turnstiles!

Over the years following Palace there have been a few incidents :

We were in a packed pub away at Cambridge and my pint ended up filling up the pocket of this Cambridge fans sheepskin coat, luckily I passed my empty glass into the hand of a female Cambridge fan and thinking that it was her that had soaked him the Cambridge fan laughed off the incident and trouble was averted.

Once I accidentally knocked a Cardiff fan into a large puddle after a 2-2 draw at Ninian Park and he chased me all the way back to Coach One, not able to catch me he threw a stone and broke the back window of the coach which luckily was pretty empty at the time, it was a pretty draughty return journey back to Selhurst.

I was once ejected along with many other Palace fans after celebrating a goal against Villa at Villa Park and we were allowed back in at half-time.

Not many incidents when you consider how many games I have witnessed trouble at, especially in the 70's and 80's when it was rife and the designer gear casuals were to be avoided unless you were looking for trouble.

I would never advise watching Palace from Millwall's end. Me and my dad couldn't be bothered to queue for the away end at The Den and it looked full. Must've been around '86 and we watched Brightly score in the first 5 mins. Spending the next 85 whilst they frothed at the mouths ruined any enjoyment from the win.

I ended up standing in the middle of Millwall in the CBL at the Old Den wearing my Palace scarf after being directed through the wrong entrance by a steward.

There was a bloke at the back banging a big oil drum to create a rhythm for the vociferous Millwall fans to join in with.

Having spotted that I was Palace they left me standing uncomfortably in the middle of them on my own as they created space around me.

Palace scored and stewards then transferred me into the Away section for my own safety and it was lucky they did as Palace went on to win 3-0.

Oh look a troll from another club.

Thought Sheffield Wednesday in 2010 was going to end in a massive punch up.Luckily got out of the ground relatively early while most of the nutters were still on the pitch.

I was at that one, I remember the stewards couldn't contain the SW supporters on the pitch from trying to get to us and the police had to step in. Its seems the Northern police hadn't heard of Safeguarding or paperwork and gave everyone trying it on a good wack with a truncheon.
A second phase of entertainment.
I then left to find some Palace fans running back into the ground as there were a few SW supporters outside but I didn't see anything actually happening.

One of the best games I've ever been to probably second only to the 4-3 at Villa.

89 at Walsall away got a fine of 275 & banned from fellows pk for life for flicking a v sign at ref for not giving us a pen or free kick
Admittedly i might've resisted arrest a little bit ;) :supergrin:

Getting thrown out at loftus rd but got back in , in the upper tier.

Had a copper telling me they were going to get me next at Highbury as the plod were trying to grab this big geezer in the packed away end and nearly did when the crowd serged forward but i could see they was going to get him so grabbed the bloke and pulled back from the plod who went mental ��

Was that at the last game of the season/ Ian Wright relegation game? Reason I ask is that i was nearly nicked but disappeared backwards when the crowd surged forwards!

Does arrested at QPR away count? :)

I'm pretty sure that's standard. QPR policing and stewarding is way OTT

Do you mean 79/80 ? if so , any idea why the coaches to the station were parked so far away after the game ? :eek:

Sunderland, FA cup quarter final 1976. Lovely Wearsiders lined the route back to the station to wish us a safe trip home.

Yep. I got separated from my mates and was making my back alone when a person came up behind and started walking alongside. Very jittery until he said "It's OK mate, I'm Palace too". Now breathe OUT :D.

Similar to Leeds in the previous round. Shuttle buses back to the station were parked on wasteland next to the stadium. Leeds fans were waiting to wave goodbye and managed to infiltrate the buses and waited until they were en route before starting massive punch-ups before opening the doors and running off. Police noticeable by their absence. Seems they were not daft. Scary.

Yes, 79/80!
I broke my PB for the 200m (or maybe even 400m) running along a grass verge by a sort of dual carriageway, as one of their "fans" tried to rugby tackle me, in an attempt to get back to the coaches!

I remember asking a manc away at maine road (2000-2002 time) which way to Manchester Piccadilly. He told me to walk down the side street which I now know to be Moss Side.

luckily I didnt trust him otherwise I would be having someone else write this for me.

Arrested for foul and abusive language away at Sheffield United late 80s.Midweek game.Missed the train back,spent a night in the cells then got fined a tenner at the Magistrates Court.Full fare on the train back so finally got home skint and with a criminal record!Worst thing was police wouldn't tell me the score all night.It was 1-1.

Liverpool away 77.

They were jumping from the seats above into us in the second half. Fights breaking out all game. Went to the pisser near the end and a nice copper decided to throw me out! Chased all round Liverpool with London scouse who we had been drinking with in London pointing us out!!!

Hooked up with 10 other palace walking back to the station and got jumped as we got there. Just caught the last train back (D) and when we got back a dozen millwall waiting for us.

Paddy told them about how the London scouse were pointing us out up there and given the choice of them or us decided to go for them! :-)

All in all a good result but hardly saw any footy. :grrr:

Then leeds. Same game as posted before above. Went by car and leeds fans were wandering around the car park looking for palace and kicking the F out of the cars. No-one got out!!!!

Newcastle away. Drinking in a snooker club with them and it kicked off between some of them and the indian owners. Pool balls, cues tables all over. Luckily weren't interested in me or my mate and actually advised us to, leave in case someone else thought it was palace/Newcastle!!!

Holding a Millwall supporter out in front of an oncoming train at Norwood Junction years ago after seeing him abusing a young disabled Palace fan. Did pull him back in after giving him a good scare and two police who witnessed it just warned me not to do it again. Nowadays you would be hauled away for dispensing juctice. If it were a Southern driver you'd have to wait a year for the train

Even quite a while later, they were offering me and my daughter out, as we walked back to our car.

Mine was after the Sunderland away play-off game; finding myself on my own, walking away from the ground, got chased by a group of lads once one had thumped the side of my face and broken a back tooth.

Same as davech above, I managed to find two Palace fans who were trying to get to the station (to get back to Newcastle), but it was surrounded by locals. I offered them a lift to Newcastle and dropped them off there, before driving to my hotel in Leeds and breathing a sigh of relief (as well as thinking about booking a dental appointment and getting play-off final tickets).

Was pretty amusing watching Clint Hill offering the entire SW crowd. Outside there were as many SU nutters as SW. Top away day.

Most trouble getting to a game (if that counts) would be Bristol City League Cup 1988-ish, our coach broke down outside The Prop (Purley Way). We got moving on a replacement bloody hours later, I got out in Coulsdon 6 - 6.30-ish, had enough. The remaining die-hards on board got there at half-time with Palace 3-0 down - we lost 4-1.

Yes I do mean 79/80 (DOH). The green double decker buses (as I recall) parked at some large green because the roads around Main Road were horrible little cobbled streets with lots of 'back alleys', so I presumed too narrow to get coaches down !!

Got nicked at Brighton for the 0-0 night game at the Withdean about 14/15 years ago.

Broke up with Mrs cos I needed to cancel our poxy caravan holiday to Haven when Palace made the cup final last May. It was the last straw apparently. Sorry luv but as if I was gonna go to a f***ing caravan park and mix it with a load of council hillbillies when Palace were at Wembley. (Rolling eyes face / smiley)

Priorities :p

Everton away 79 or 80.Horrified to find out as we left the ground that there was a bus strike and we'd have to walk to Lime Street.The escort was infiltrated by their fans who would ask you the time then beat you up.Liverpool was like a bomb site in those days and even remember old people and children throwing stones and batteries at us from the terraced houses as we passed by.Only time in my life I was glad we'd lost otherwise we'd wouldn't have got out of the place alive.1-3 with Mike Flanagan for scoring for us.....

must be 76/77 epic cup run....leeds away being a particular harrowing experience..every bus bricked on way back to central station...chelsea and then sunderland away all had their share of fear...alas any England away fixture in the 90's for me was a war zone..Poland particularly in Katowice you could write a book about. Italian old bill always being more hooligani than their own fans...the new lot of fans don't know how lucky they are.....

think that should read 75/76 cup run....forgot to mention the old u-tube clips from Elland road show beer bellie palace fans with the 'big mal' fedoras on at end of match on the pitch..legendary stuff
Actually got ejected from old Highbury for doin masterbating sign at Perry Groves, pointed out to old bill that most were comin from gooners but booted out anyway...sneaked back in 15 mins later and walked straight into same plod chucked me out ..who incredibly did'nt recognise me...think we lost 4..1 or some shitty scoreline

??? I am a bit confused....are you referring to me? I hit a guy after we won (can't remember if 1 nil or 2-1 with Morrison scoring) we went outside singing and two guys were getting upset behind us. one of them kicked my heel for me to trip so I swung and knocked him to the floor. can't really remember what happened after that.

unless there is another Nash?

Obviously didn't piss myself though!!
