    They saved the best game for last.
    Full house ,great atmosphere ,just the way it used to be.
    Even found myself rooting for Croydon’s No.3 team.

    Palace deserved to win… being a Villa fan… I’m glad they didn’t!

    Unlucky decision at the end cost Palace dearly.

    “banks of seats at such an angle that you could almost swear that they are over-hanging the pitch.”

    Not where I was standing in the Arthur Wait Stand, which has much too shallow a rake, knee-room suitable for people shorter than 5’6″, and seats wide enough for people under 10 Stone. The view was so bad I had to decamp to the back of the stand, where there were a few spare rows of seats, and you could just about get a view of the game by standing on the seats. This part of Selhurst Park just needs to be demolished and replaced with a proper stand.
