The apparently sincere suggestion that the new club would go by the name of "Crystal Palace & Wimbledon FC" OR ... "Wimbledon & Crystal Palace FC" said it all.

The day's attendance was 5,891. Never one to miss out an opportunity to make a buck, Ron had deemed that you had to turn up for the match to get a vote unless you'd filled in some exemption forms in triplicate. This policy reached its natural conclusion with the generous offer of signing up for Lifeline getting you to the front of the queue for Cup Final tickets.

Unbelievably, nobody seemed to be particularly enthused and the official result came in at about 90% in favour of "Piss Off". I suspect that that was a tactical underestimate in the same way that Mugabe, Hussein, Assad & the various Kims rarely claim to get more than 98% of the vote when they stand unopposed in their elections.

With the benefit of hindsight, it was probably just another chapter in the half-hearted long-term project between Noades & Sam Hammam to engulf Wimbledon into the less than mightly folds of CPFC for some reason. Grim times, yes but just 2 and a half years later we were beating Blackburn in the Play-Off final in front of 30,000.

And today ... it all seems a wee bit silly looking back. In fact Ron's pipedreams of a South London superclub look a hell of a lot worse than silly. Ill-conceived, futile, pointless, delusional etc etc
I was there. I remember thinking it was going to happen regardless of any vote glad I was wrong

The name being mooted was the 'South London Eagles' in deference to our much bigger fan base even though Wimbledon were in the top division and we were getting crowds of 5000.Dark days indeed but some of us never stopped going!

This demo was really against Noades, but nearly everyone liked the manager, in his first season, Steve Coppell, although there was no sign of three at the back and trying to pass the ball from defence to midfield in those days!

Good Post, though the last paragraph if it all goes tits up and with the hassle over the New Den I do wonder if the Phoenix will rise on the South London super club......

But then we had to leave as our Mums would be wondering where we were.

Thought we made our point.
There was a post-match protest against Uncle Ron's proposed merger with Wimbledon with a hundred or so of us refusing to leave the Holmesdale at the end. Then a couple of Old Bill came and asked us nicely to leave, which a few minutes later we did . Can't remember the game though.

Having gone through the 80s with Palace recent years have been amazing.

In "We All Follow The Palace" it says the club received 2,289 completed questionnaires (which was in the Blackburn programme)that produced a 9-1 majority for "no merger" (with Wimbledon).

Breaking down the figures 10% of Lifeline members were in favour of a merger, 7% of season ticket holders and 6% of supporters. 22 non Palace supporters were against the merger.

The attendance at the Blackburn game was just under 6,000. Advertiser quotes Ron Noades in the days before the game..

I found that staggering at the time and I was only a teenager - 10 per cent of Palace supporters voted IN FAVOUR of merging with Wimbledon?? Shows how gullible people can be I suppose.

I recognise the black guy in the middle of the picture - Rene something or other - went to school with him and I think he's a postie. Bumped into him in Sainsburys bogs about 5 years back - hadn't seen him for about 25 years
