Odd the Boxing day hammers run; whatever; we need to reverse last seasons performance today. I remember the QPR game, Robbie Pethick whine I did not rate at all played out if his socks for 10 mins that game, more than he did all season. After the game we all went back to my hoops mate's house for a post match dinner; nukes turkey, sprouts like bullets, it all tasted lovely

Interesting that between 1978 (4th div) and 1980 (3rd div) we managed to get 10,000 more fans along. Well, I think it's interesting anyway! Perhaps 1978 was really bad weather. Both opposition teams were pretty local. 1978 was a great year! My first ever boxing day game. What a stormer. Was Billy Wilson the one with the blond hair who looked a bit like Harpo Marx?

At least a dozen games. Memorable games from the away game at Plymouth '86. A long trip for a lunchtime ko, great 3-2 win made it worthwile. The Whittingham 4 against Bristol Rovers in '92. One of these goals was a half a dozen one-twos with Paul Walsh, fantastic goal. 2 crackers from Berger to stuff Spurs 6 years ago. Linvoy's goals at Palace & West Ham bring back some happy memories.

So many games to trawl through but let me count em first. I think it is twelve for me from 1966 on. Away games a bit difficult over the Xmas period with family commitments etc but I was a Palace in 67 morning kick off and then made Spurs v Fulham in the afternoon - strange fact both games ended 2-2!

Matt remembers Linvoy's goals, well those were his only three Premier League goals!! Should we have rolled him out today?!

Yes HSB - that was Billy Wilson. Palace away in 67 was my first away game - a long time ago, in a land far far away.........PUP
