The game after Wrighty left felt like We were attending a funeral service at SP. Felt as though heart had been ripped out of the team. Never really replaced him although Chris Armstrong was useful but needed Brighty Who as story goes left because he didn't want to mentor Armstrong. Don't know if true just something I read at time. Wright/Bright partnership was a dream. Had Liverpool not been surprisingly let back into Europe instead of us I believe they would have stayed a few more years and Noades would have invested more in the team. But hey no. That's the corrupt FA and UEFA for you

It was a sad day when he left and you can’t begrudge his achievements post Palace. I have said it before and will say it again, I’ll always be more annoyed with our failure to replace and rebuild after his departure. A real ‘what if..’ moment we failed to grasp when there were good players around for reasonable prices in those days.

Gave us, and sounds geeky, "A new hope"

Some who were around back then probably need a new hip..

Let's face it, those five years, 1980-1985 were grim, only really Mabbutt and Hillaire, sparking any excitement, pizzazz, joie de vivre.

Selhurst was a depressing place, even as a kid I often felt like, what the hell am I doing here. Half the team at the time always seem to appear in worst palace elevens, an guessing that is because few remember the re-election days of the 50s when we were at our lowest ebb.

Wright gave us pace, youth, determination, in my 35 plus years of support, he was the biggest loss when he left

Totally agree with all of this,although I have good memories of the early to mid 80’s because I never missed a game and despite the demise of the team and some of the bleak away trips it was good times on our travels.
Spot on though, Ian Wright was the first little spark of better days on the pitch and what was to come after years of decline.
I seem to remember though, Andy Gray was signed as a striker and we were hoping he was going to lift the gloom, but then this skinny little black fella appeared from nowhere and the rest is history

That line made me laugh because it is so true. Even at an age when every experience seemed new, exciting and wonderous, you would often trudge away from Selhurst after another defeat like an weary cynical old man.

The early 80's were indeed dreadful. Coppell completely rebuilt the side with hungry players. I remember a pre-season friendly down in Torquay (think it was 1985) when Steve Ketteridge was really bollocking another Palace player for not marking up at a throw in and I remember thinking to myself that the players Coppell was bringing in had a completely different attitude to the teams of the early 80's.

Yes, the early 80’s was horrible, but looking back at the line up’s we still had a few decent players like Mabbutt, Hilaire, Nicholas, Gilbert, and Cannon. We did use to raise ourselves for the ‘big games’ and pull the results out of the bag: Sheff W, Leicester, Newcastle, West Ham...

Reading Hilaire’s autobiography actually shines a light on all that was wrong at the time. We brought in a lot of older players who were just after one last half decent contract in the game, and so were just cruising to retirement and weren’t all that bothered about Palace or have that hunger and drive to succeed.

Vince admitted that the squad just weren’t that bothered and only turned up for the ‘big’ matches.

I seem to remember we went on a good run after Wright left, with Bright scoring regularly. And Gabbiadini wasn't bad.

Gabbiadini’s problem was he wasn’t Ian Wright, he didn’t stand a chance really, he just didn’t have Wrighty’s pace and we carried on playing the same way as we were with Wrighty up front. We ended up selling Gabbiadini a few months later at a £600,000 loss

I saw something on Twitter the other day about which former player you would most want in current team and choice amongst others were between AJ and Ian Wright. Lots going for AJ and I loved him but I can't believe you would vote for him if you actually saw Ian Wright play.

Wilf is running him close but Ian Wright is still the best I have seen in red and blue. Can still remember as a young lad Richard Shaw scoring own goal in first minute away to Southampton and not being worried in the slightest because we had Wrighty. He was that good that you always had hope and belief.

Andy Cole to name one.
I imagine that this will have been covered on another thread, but does anyone know if Cole was on the Palace radar at the time? Was he ever considered as part of the deal with Arsenal for Wright?
I saw him once when he was on loan at Bristol City and he certainly looked the part, but by then everyone would have known about him.

that's my take as well. Cole was offered as part of the deal and Noades solely wanted a cash deal for Wright. Think Cole later ended up on loan at Bristol City in 92 before joining Newcastle and the rest is history.

Thanks, I hadn't realised we'd missed a trick there.
I'm glad it has taken me so long to find out, I might have been a bit peeved had I known at the time.
