I queued all night for the first game. Got my ticket from being a Lifeline Member - from the start I hasten to add - as I couldn't afford a season ticket back then. Got back from Wembley and joined the queue all night again for the replay, on sale the next day. Managed to get a ticket for my brother too. A few hundred swarmed out of Crystals around 3.00am and went straight to the front, where some mates had apparently been 'keeping their places' . Queue had grown significantly by morning. The vegetation around the carpark never really survived the double onslaught.

The eventual anti-climax was a real downer.

The yellow and black kit was suggested by Geoid Thomas who had played for a team that wore it and never lost....... Tempted fate!

There was a version of it with plain yellow top and massive eagle shadow/faded into fabric. That was pretty nice.

Foul count was 16-16. Enough said there

For the first game got in the que around 5am and got served after 2pm, For the replay we got served by around 11am.
Was it this game or the ZDS when the wardens had ticketed everyone who had parked wheels on the footpath on Park Road?

I knew I was playing cricket at Kingswood in the afternoon but I still queued for tickets after arriving at 7.00 am and got back to play with some ease. Never a doubt in my mind!
The match itself had totally different atmosphere and was more aggressive on and off the field. There is a grudge feel about playing United which persists to this day.

After going home from Wembley to eat, me my brother and mates went to Selhurst and started queuing in the car park at around 8pm or 9pm. The queue overnight snaked right around the Sainsbury’s car park and I think there was at least a couple of hundred who went right through the night.

It was a great night of good humour with a kick about on the pitch at one point. Got no sleep whatsoever. Some had turned up with sleeping bags but most didn’t.

For some reason, John Pemberton’s family turned up at the cab office by the club shop late in the evening, and I had a long chat with his mum. She told me to my shock that John was not happy at Palace and was looking to leave that summer. Even though it was coming from his mum, I didn’t quite believe it as I’d heard no rumblings about him being unsettled, but sure enough, he was sold to Sheff Utd a few weeks later.

Seem to recall Ron Noades turning up at about 9 ish and the tickets going on sale at about 10am, but can’t be totally sure. I don’t recall many fans ducking out through the night. You just pitched up in the queue and that was your space. Many moved about through the night but kept their space by leaving coats and bags in their place. Remember at one point at about 4am I was freezing and went to warm up in my brother’s motor in the car park.

Got photos somewhere of the queue. Will have to fish them out.

I drove from Kent to the ground at about 7.30AM but all the link machines were down so had to pop around my dads back in Kent to borrow some cash. I got to the ground at about 9.30 and the queue was in Whitehorse Lane. It snaked a few times around what is now the car park and the toilets in the Glaziers Bar were open for comfort breaks. I recall getting to where the tickets were being sold at the corner of the Main Stand and Holmesdale at about 3 or 4. So not so bad in the end.

Trying to recall what was there at that time. Was it just empty waste ground?

Glad I asked these questions now. Got some great stories about the replay ticket queues!

Would love to see the photos you mentioned

The Sainsbury's car park now was already the Sainsbury's car park then.

I remember for the (Saturday game) Cup Final tickets I was in the 3rd group, so was a bit unsure whether there would be any left by then. I got to the queue just before midnight, and there were probably 40-50 people in front of me at that time. The queue started at roughly where the new gates are and went back from there. It was feckin' cold, and someone went into the ground and grabbed an advertising hoarding, and broke it up and used it for firewood in a Sainsbury's trolley. A few of us also went onto the pitch and had a kickabout, as someone else already mentioned. From memory there was a great spirit in the people in the queue, everyone chatting to each other etc. The best ticket I could get was a seat behind the goal and up fairly high, but that didn't matter - was just thrilled to get one.

For the replay I got there a bit earlier, probably 9-10pm, and was quite a bit further back from the front; there were a couple of hundred in front of me. The spirit of the first queue was gone though, no doubt people were still dealing with the disappointment from earlier in the day. I got a much better ticket for the Replay, a bit to the left of the Royal Box as you looked from the pitch, but I'd have happily swapped that and sat behind the goal again for the result to be reversed.
