    A Palace mate of mine complained to me that Spurs had taken over the whole of the Holmesdale terrace, which pre all-seater was massive.

    btw - When Palace got promoted 2-0 v Burnley in 1979, they had 51,500 in the ground, which was even more than Spurs got for the top of the table match v Bolton 1978. Not too many Burnley fans there midweek either I expect. Crowd unofficially put at 60,000.

    Looks more like Hampden Park Celtic Leeds

    I know people (non palace) who went that night, just seemed to capture the imagination. Our Bolton game was played the same day as two fa cup semi finals in London. I think it was west brom v ipswich at woolwich then orient v woolwich at scumford bridge which makes our attendance all the more remarkable. They staggered the kick offs that afternoon but London was awash with fans.

    good point, I'm forgetting that bods used to think nothing of spending a few quid to turn up on terraces where it wasn't their team.

    I'm more surprised at the capacities of some of the grounds back then. Palace? Had only got to Div 1 for the first time ever 1969.

    To illustrate the fact that the Burnley attendance was a fluke is that Palaces average for that promotion season was 23,294 and for their next season it was 29,794 but by 1982-83 the self styled 'team of the 80's were down to an average of 9,887. As an aside chelseas average in 82-83 was a massive 12,672. (we were the 3rd best supported that season).
