    What sort of Mickey club changes their home strip colour and nickname? Oh, one that fabricates a rivalry with Brighton!

    :hmm:

    The Glaziers was such an obvious nickname and sort of sorry they lost it really. It was unique in style and no one copied it, unlike the Eagles.
    As I said, big Mal came in and made many changes. He wanted us to be ambitious, forward looking and, well continental, so introduced this strip and variations

    This was the Crystal Palace, hence glaziers

    Big Mal (deserves a big mention) was a huge larger than life character and one of football's most colourful/controversial characters, more so than Cloughie? . Just search him in images and you will get a feel for him.
    In his fedora, with his cigars, in the playboy club, cavorting with bunny girls, he led a champagne/[layboy lifestyle. He had a huge ego and a huge mouth and the greatest character to grace Selhurst.

    From footfair "Not quite the styles you would see this decade, but Malcolm Allison who managed 18 clubs in 4 different countries and also the national team of Kuwait, was very well known for his hats and fur-coats. Possibly wouldn't be considered as a "sharp" look today, in the 1970's however, Allison was as stylish as they came in the world of football."

    I get the connection, just thought it sounded funny. Then again, the potters is a thing too.

    What a night last night! I was out for dinner with family members who I didn't really know before. They come from the seaside and they support
    that seaside team who managed a nil draw yesterday :D:thumbs:

    Looking quickly forward; Stoke away coming up. Given Stokes position, a live match on the box and many years ago, I can remember the car I was in getting bricked by Stoke fans when we went up there!

    Me and my son got kettled by police within a very lively group of Stoke fans season before last at London Bridge. Had to sidle off to the cordon and quietly convince the old bill that we were Palace :D.

    You forgotten about the Addicks/Valiants/Robins you plonker?

    We have multiple nicknames from over the years. Most nigels (see, you have a few yourself) will have no idea if you mention glazers. Your fans lapped up the complete make over of your club.

    LOL. Even that plonker Bromley thinks you're an idiot, as he said, "What sort of Mickey club changes their home strip colour and nickname?"

    So Crystal Palace are the first top flight club to lose their first 7 games and not get relegated since Liverpool in 1900.

    Another glorious top half finish to the season. I know of a big birthday party and now palace celebration happening in Addington today as well. Can't make it because of work.
    So we look forward to a new season and transfer speculation. A striker and goalie for starters.
    Will Roy keep going?

    Not much quality material for the Post of the Year Award, this time around. No outright winners I feel, but an honourable mention perhaps, for this little gem from a certain early point in the season:
