    From memory I think there were 3 or 4 of those burger trolleys on the Fulham Road. The proprietors all ways looked like they'd just come out of nick. I quite liked the vacuum packed burgers they used to sell in the ground. I think the blokes that sold them used to walk around the stadium with some sort of big plastic tub. The meat was a bit vulcanised but it tasted Ok.

    I hear what your saying, and technically you are right. He’s a naturalised Spanish citezeon though- elected to play for them rather than Brazil having lived there for many years. The bottom line is he’s a Latin, and probably feels more comfortable in sunnier climes.

    Everyone wearing new Xmas clothes and glad to get out having spent the previous day cooped up at their parents. I only went to QPR once before they rebuilt the ends and turned it into a Lego stadium. Not sure why they bothered. For the sake of a bit more seating they knocked about 8000 off their capacity. Ps one year a geyser standing behind us in the School End was doing some horrific post Xmas dinner farts- it was so packed you couldn’t move away.

    I think Costa realised early on that he preferred plying his trade in Madrid rather than London. Homesickness.

    If he was a Red Indian his name would be Greycloud. He reminds me quite a bit of Eeyore the donkey in Winnie the Pooh.

    There was definitely a hooligan pecking order. As I said Chelsea would regularly lord it wearing colours in Palace's backyard, but wouldn't do so in East London I'm sure. From as far back as I can remember, West Ham were always known as number one in London. Even at 10 years old I was aware of an unofficial hooligan league table- older blokes, brothers, cousins etc used to put us in the picture. When I started secondary school and going to aways on the Monday morning you'd boast to your mates that Chelsea took a certain home end, and there would be chatter about whether Arsenal or West Ham did the same. I never saw West Ham take the Shed. The night game in 79 they had a few little mobs here and there who got sussed and run out. September 1980 they were by the tea bar with Chelsea all around them. I think up and down the country we put on more of a show than them late 70s, early 80's, but we avoided Upton Park until late season 81.

    If your determined to find a scapegoat the obvious answer is Roman himself. Of course you like having " bogeymen" figures on the board to blame. I get the impression that your wary of criticising the main man himself, because somehow that would be sacrilegious. Much easier just to drone on and on about the incompetence of everyone else.

    Oh it's all Marina's fault. And before that it was Emeraldo's fault. These people are just middle management. They report to, and no doubt are directed by R.A. They are carrying out his wishes. If this was not the case they would be sacked. Rather than continuously blaming the board, why don't you just be a man about it and blame the owner?

    It was a testament to JT's positioning that he rarely got " roasted" by speed merchants. Before my time but people said the same about Bobby Moore. Saying that to counter JTs lack of pace, particularly towards the end, the defence sat pretty deep.

    I think all this clap trap about them being bigger than us started when they pulled a 51,000 gate last game 79 against Burnley- Friday night before the Cup Final- loads of neutrals in attendance. Back then all the time I used regularly see blokes walking down Surrey Street market in Croydon wearing Chelsea tops and no one batted an eyelid.

    The team of the 80s! There was a period late 70s, early 80's when we were struggling and they were doing well by their standards. A few Palace fans I went to school with reckoned they were a bigger club than us at the time. I always thought the atmosphere over there was pathetic- nowadays they do make a bit of noise but not then. They played us in George Grahams testimonial- May 1980- we took the Holmesdale- afterwards a load of the boys went onto the Iranian Embassy and scattered the people protesting outside. ( there's film of this somewhere in the Rock n Roll years) Re George Graham, Ive never been able to work out why they granted him a testimonial given he didn't play for them for very long.

    Open air urinals in some grounds.
  14. The bloke hardly ever lost a header. Even the likes of Joe Jordan, Peter Withe and Cyrille Regis couldn't compete. Ps According to my brothers Panini sticker book the only player taller than him was Joe Corrigan, who was half an inch taller at 6' 4 and a half inches. Droy was massive all over with it. He always reminded me of Bluto on Popeye.

    Is this the end of Roman era at CFC?

    He's a silent as the Sphinx.
