    As close as that! I remember the march from Derby station through zillions of back streets to the Baseball Ground when we played Derby in the League Cup replay in 1976. Not particularly scenic I can tell you.
    Just a hedgehog on the motorway of life.

      Topped off by the police absolutely refusing to let me head home to Ealing, where I lived at the time, and kettling me for hours to a station for a train to Brighton.
      I had exactly the same thing. Can’t remember where but felt like we’d been walked to Coulsdon South it was so far.

      Managed to slip their cordon and head north the way I needed to. Ridiculous.

      From memory it was about 5,000 as we had 2/3 of the Arthur Waite that day. I was right down in the corner nearest where the Ultras sit these days.

      Coins, bottles, food and anything else they could get their grubby little mitts on came flying over that day.

      Fantastic.

      More like 3500 give or take. That is my one an only visit to Selhurst thus far. The date is etched into my mind as posters on here may know - I literally celebrate the date every year. Until the birth of my boy that was by far and away the best moment of my life.

      With reduced allocations, loyalty points and the general state of modern football I don't think we will ever have a night like that again...

      The McShane game for me.

      I know who has that special shirt too. Got it for £600. Bargain.

      Seagull eater gives a good account of the 79 game, could have been 8000 bha tbh. Had do do a quick one out the Palace end that day. Must have been 2000 marching from East Croydon to the ground.
      I remember a welcoming committee outside Norwood Junction. I was one of the first outside and the locals melted away quickly when they saw the sheer numbers coming through behind me. Quite a few chaps from Hollingbury I remember.

      Remember going up from Littlehampton on the train and we all met up at Haywards Heath in the pub then back in the train up to there place and the train was rammed in every carriage.
      Got to East Croydon where we all tried to out think the old bill by running over the tracks but they closed every exit off so we were all marched from the station to the ground but allowed to go into every off license on the way !!!
      After the game there was no police escort in sight so we all had a field day on the way back to the station with cars being turned over and numerous rucks en route

      We had a group of about 130 from mid Sussex but the platform was already busy, the trains coming through HH were already rammed, police held us back on East Croydon Station letting us out in small groups, eventually we all moved off together on foot around 2000+ a wall off blue white and yellow.

      Thinking back over the years, which game at Selhurst Park has seen the highest numbers of Albion fans and / or the loudest support?

      Prompted by a picture posted by Return of the Rev in another thread, my mind went back to the days before tickets and number restrictions, to when I was a teenage schoolboy. Would it have been around 1979-80? I think we must have had 6,000 - 7,000 at Selhurst Park, most on the terrace behind the goal. Amazing numbers and atmosphere - I think the total crowd was around 30,000, and there was plenty of hostility. I remember seeing a schoolmate with blood pouring out of a headwound. I think it was the game where Budgie and his mates went in the Palace end temporarily.

      Anyway, which is the best turnout you can remember, and the highest total crowd at a Palace away game?
      was that when we took bejams....?? 78 ..??
      FLOUNDERING...!!!

      No, Nigel Green wasn’t from Balcombe. He lived very briefly there I believe, but I can’t say that with absolute certainty. He did die in Brighton mind. If you want my credentials on this matter, I’m from there, have done 2 talks on, media interviews and toured the SA battlefields / spent time with the worlds leading experts. Oh, and chatted with Bournes descents. Apart from that... ;)
      “Everything about this looks wrong. The run-up is too long, too straight, and you know it’s going over the bar ... it goes over the bar, and Brighton have stolen a trip to Wembley! That is an absolute burglary! And that is the FA Cup!”

      went in the Holmesdale one year (?78 ?79) with my brother and a few lads from Hampden Park and Eastbourne. we had a pussers bed sheet with 'we f'kin hate palace' on it. the old bill soon moved us to our fans :-) quite a few there that day.
      I was on here before as 'Hampden Park'
