    Relegation 2022/23

    I watched last year's Great Escape against Palace from Egypt. Fly out there again on Tuesday and will watch our last two games from there. No worries. (Otherwise known as the Clutching at Straws tactic).

    Yes it was lovely to see him there, Joey. I bet he wished he could have been out there in a blue shirt heading every ball. Probably be centre-forward in our present team!

    Duncan McKenzie appreciation thread

    That game was on Granada the following day and they had the yard-dog Tommy Smith in the studio to give his 'expert' opinion: McKenzie "belongs in a circus". Duncan went on to play brilliantly against Smith and his RS mates in the Clive Thomas semi-final.

    That used to be my policy as well - I'd check their score and if they were losing put it on to laugh at their demise. Istanbul 2005 put an end to that. Never watched them since unless it's against us.

    Just watched the highlights of the Colchester game you posted a while back Joey. Jimmy was brilliant that day and was really finding his best form. Unfortunately Panathinaikos manager Puskas was watching the game and they crocked him in the opening minutes of the game at Goodison.

    That looks right - that could be a young McMahon in the photo as well.

    John Bailey's in the background and he didn't play in that game either. Could be the 0-4 from the 79/80 season, a few weeks before we knocked them out of the Cup.

    More like the 0-4 in 70/71 Joey

    It was Dario. School was closed too so managed to get there! :)

    Big lanky striker Jenkins. Also scored against us in 1-1 draw at Goodison the following season, and I've just checked to see that he only scored two goals in his Palace career. Some things don't change!

    Scored, straight down the middle as usual. We actually started well that season and were near the top after 10 or 11 games - then fell away so badly that the Catt was 'moved upstairs' by April.

    Proper pitch that Joey - when men were men! :D Could do with a pitch like that now to drag everyone down to our level.

    Pinpointing a moment.....

    Selling Alan Ball! Seriously I agree with the OP and would add to it Giroud's missus not wanting to move 'up north'. After that Koeman seemed to give up and started turning up like he'd just staggered in from a night on the lash.

    Sooner be battered by Kieran than Grant Hanley! Preston made two subs aftr 30 mins - Tommy still on.
