I was unfortunately sitting in the Arthur for that Chelsea game and I was surrounded by Chelsea supporters giving the racist abuse to Canoville. It was shocking. Equally shocking was going to Wembley to see Ian Wright's England debut. The racist abuse he got in the first half from so called England supporters around me was so bad I moved at half time to the other side of the stadium as you could in those days. Unfortunately it was just as bad there. I didn't go to another England game for 20 years as a result.

People saying there was no racism from Palace fans in that awful era are unfortunately incorrect. We definitely had National Front supporters amongst the crowd in the Arthur enclosure in a number of games. They may not have been regulars but they were definitely there. Fortunately there were far fewer than at other London clubs.

I recall in the 80’s the Croydon Advertiser showing a picture of a Palace Badge alongside NF. Never a massive contingent at Palace, but there were definitely some supporters.

That reminds me; I went to Wright’s debut for England B team at The Den of all places. Was so proud to see him finally get a chance, but felt so gutted for him as he was booed and abused everytime he got the ball from what must’ve been the Millwall faithful.

I was there too, subbed at half time for Paul Williams

Millwall fans who made up about 90% of the crowd gave Wright dogs abuse every time he went near the ball

Can't recall seeing situation like it before, or since

Never saw Bright referred to as a Barnados boy in any of the programmes I've got. Me and all my lot were surprised to learn of his upbringing when teasers of his book were released recently.

We all saw the Fashanu's referred to in this manner. Cant believe Ashton would confuse them though

Definitely heard the trigger songs in my formative years

When you think about it there must've been some Chelsea lot amongst us back then, as this would explain why we used to sing some of there songs (even celery )

It was quite common back then for hooligan groups to infiltrate other clubs when they weren't playing. Also wouldnt be surprised if it was a general NF tactic back then to "spread the word" as such, don't ever remember the regular Palace fans singing anything like that and you did get used to the faces back then but I also remember hearing it on occasion by small pockets of meatheads.

I remember this being mentioned in passing around the time of him signing, but never afterwards. Back then there was less understanding of the issues and implications associated with that sort of childhood / upbringing.

I went to that. Did Nige play too. I remember Millwall fans chanting Eagles to see who looked over and responded. Slightly uneasy evening.
