Also for me. Leicester away. Able to spend the day with people I love. Palace were great on the day, and from the first minute we outsung the home fans.

The chorus of "He's just too good for you" which followed was brimming with pure passion, truth and justified vengeance from everyone with a red and blue heart. Not to mention how hilarious it was watching him fly past their defence.
It could be recency bias, but I can't look beyond that moment. Possibly one of my favourite ever moments at Selhurst. To cap off the season, and potentially Wilf's career with Palace, it was perfect.

It also illustrates the huge gulf in experience between watching on TV and a live game. None of the clips or highlights I've seen capture the context or that roar from the crowd. You had to be there.

And it made you think: surely Wilf is having too much fun to walk away now?

Same, and I dunno about you but I ended up on the same train as Roy and the squad. Said hi and congratulations and all when we got off at Euston/Kings X (can’t remember), and then a few minutes later on the Northern Line, I was in the same carriage as Joniesta. Little did I know that he’d be leaving a few weeks later.

Then I had great night out in Croydon All things considered, probably my favourite every day as a palace fan.

Reading the results on the internet by doing a line at a time while hiding what’s below, getting to Man City 2 and thinking well 2-0 ain’t bad, then uncovering C Palace 3. Swiftly followed by a search of the sky for pigs.....

Winning at the Etihad has to be it for me. It was a truly stunning achievement. This Man City side are widely being described as the best ever Premier League team ever. And we beat them at their place, scoring 3 goals including one absolute stunner.

Booked the pre-Christmas weekend in Manchester knowing I'd be at a loose end back in London. No expectations but a good pre-match chat with Palace pals. We thought we were doing well to stop them scoring before the 20th minute.

The rest is history. Never ever imagined I'd see Palace win away again at Man City. And what a superb performance.

I've struggled to find the time, money and Parish Points to travel away in the last few seasons.

Honestly, anybody who put their cold hard earnings into a suicide mission up to the Etihad this season, knowing full well that we stood less than no chance, only to receive the greatest Christmas present imaginable... you deserve all the joy and happiness in the world.

You smiled at the world and it smiled back. God speed.

Was at the Etihad, and it was just unreal.

The most enjoyable for me personally was Leicester away. Our seats were as close as you could get to their boisterous home section, and their fans gave it large and were really bloody annoying. The team destroyed them on the pitch and at first they went quiet, then all fecked off early. Lovely.

The Fulham game on the opening day and particularly Wilf scoring the second goal that started with Wan-Bissaka's run.

Winning at Arsenal, the best Easter Sunday I have ever had.

Reading the transfer part of the website on deadline day and it seemed rather down and then out of nowhere it was announced Batshuayi was possibly coming on loan and the mood changed.

Cardiff about 10 days ago was a great day.

Palace 0-0 Newcastle.
Palace 0-1 Wolves.
Nothing outstanding but when you live down here any chance you get to see Palace live is a highlight.

Yeah me too. Sunny day and I went with quite a bit of the family too. We were awful for 45 minutes, scoring the type of goal that often went against us this season. Second half we murdered them on the break.

Home games less enjoyable but the 5-3 was up there for enjoyment.
