Vince, any day of the week and twice on Sundays. Salako was good, even very good on his day, but Vince was magnificent. He was so exciting to watch, he is without doubt one of the all time Palace greats.

I was not a regular in those years. I was extremely penniless, squatting and working part time in factories and building sites. Probably made it to four or five games a season. Think I got to the West Ham match on account of winning some money, gambling. But Mullery was a big turn off, too.

He became the standard by which we judged mercurial forwards - I think when Wilf was coming through, I praised him on here by saying he could be as good as Vince, one day.
Afraid for those of us who saw them both, it's no contest. It's Hilaire every time. At times in the 80's he was almost the only reason to come along. Thrilling and dynamic. Feel he never quite fulfilled his full potential. But in his prime possibly only Zaha and Ian Wright ( and us crinklees who remember Johnny Byrne,first time around) were up there with him as players who came through the club. He never quite reached all their heights , but what a player. Salako was very good , but not quite at Hilaire's level.

One of the best performances in a Palace shirt I've seen was Vince's for 9 man Palace v Middlesbrough. Salako, with all due respect, just didn't have the same ability to be able to do that.
It really was one of the finest individual displays. For about 60 minutes we were two men short & our only game plan was 'Give it to Vince, let's see if he can hold onto it for a bit'

This sums it up perfectly for me. Vince H was the only player to get the crowd interested during so many piss-poor Palace performances back in the day. If he had had a better team around him and supporting him, I'm sure he could have been one of the all time greats.

There is only a ten year window of people who can remember Salako but not Hilaire. Salako was thirty years ago.

Vince Hilaire all day long and that is not to denigrate Salako who was a very good player. But Vince had that extra bit of magic, a 'bums off seats' kind of player who we never really saw again until Zaha came onto the scene.

It's kind of like comparing Seve Ballesteros to Nick Faldo.

Vince for me by a country mile. Salako was decent enough but never created the same sort of buzz that Vince did. Plus he was my first Palace hero so was never a contest.

He did not come even close to fulfilling his potential IMO. A criminal shame, but at least he is fondly remembered by fans of the clubs he played for and generally seems to have a cult hero status.
