A few away trips for me - Oxford in 72, Fulham in 85 Easter Monday car got flooded!and Palace in 86. Add to that Carlisle, Sunderland and Blackburn at home.

The 5 home games from 1989-2006. The last one being a cracker of a game with Blackburn where we outplayed them except for the fact Craig Bellemy scored 2 great goals, the g1t.
