Malcom Allison 10 years on

Time for all true Palace fans to raise a champagne flute and light up a Romeo y Julieta.

Thanks for putting us on the map, Big Mal!

Having followed Palace for 50 years, those times were the best - strange as we were relegated twice and missed out on promotion after building up a big lead. Great FA Cup run.

My first game was during his second spell in charge, can't remember who but I know we lost and my old man was in a strop.

I know a fairly elderly Sporting Lisbon fan who still thinks Allison is God.

Unfortunately there is no one like him today in football management. Our Club was always in the news when he was manager. Steve Coppell achieved more, but Big Mal was one hell of a character. He would be my choice to take over from Roy if we could bring him back but unfortunately he would never be allowed to get away with what he done then in this day & age.

He smokes cigars and drinks champagne
Malcolm, Malcolm,

Malcolm Allison

The most unique individual to ever set foot at Selhurst.

There was no one else quite like Malcolm in football anywhere. Palace are so much richer for the legacy and his stamp on the club. We were so lucky to have him.

I think this was his first game back a 4-1 win against Norwich.

You read Vince Hilaireís autobiography and that becomes very evident, if you werenít around at the time to watch the kids coming through that built Palace into the great team that took us up in 1979 - people such as John Cartwright, the Palace Youth coach and Arnie Warren, the main scout, probably donít get the praise that they should - but itís obvious from Vinceís recollection that the man behind it all was Allison.

We were lucky, of course, to have the wave of youngsters such as Paul Hammond, Paul and Martin Hinshelwood, Jim Cannon and Dave Swindlehurst who were around when Big Mal took over from Bert Head - they became pretty much the backbone of the team, but bit by bit, starting with Kenny Sansom then Billy Gilbert, Peter Nicholas, Jerry Murphy, Ian Walsh and Vince - the second wave of youngsters were all signed when Big Mal was in charge and those were all special players who will always have a place in Palace history and a big place in the hearts of all those Palace fans who saw them.

Hereís to you Malcolm - the man who started the Red & Blue Army!

It says so much about him that we got relegated two years consecutively while he was manager yet supporters - me included- speak so highly of him.
He was a memorable and unforgettable part of Palace’s history.

Fond memories of Vince, some lovely skills. However I do remember playing the Scoucers at home and a ball being played over the top to put Vince through and Hansen just reached up and grabbed it out of the air. I am always reminded of it when I see him on the telly, which thankfully is rare these days.

His Palace career shows the problem of looking at just the numbers. Arguably our worst manager on that basis, with the two relegations, but the success we had subsequently is due in no small part to the youth system he introduced. In fact, for decades afterward the club had an ethos of "give youth a chance" that, IMO, attracted young talent to our gates.
