Vince Hilaire autobiography

Out March 1st 2018!

First I’ve heard of it. My first Palace hero - can’t wait to read it.

I wonder if he’ll mention the time an 11 year old Bubbs11 met him at a kids Sunday League award ceremony and got him to swear over and over again that he would never leave Palace...

He left literally two weeks later.

I’ve had trust issues ever since

Anyone recall how we managed to hold onto him until 84? Why wasn't he part of the great exodus of 81 & 82?

Was it injury? Loss of form?

Can't remember exactly why he didn't leave at that point but his form could be very inconsistent though.

It´s not like any first division clubs were in for him.

OThere was a short documentary about him on ITV in the summer of 1976, also titled Vince - but apart from this short clip, it seems nobody has the full documentary anymore - shame because it is still amongst the most exciting times in our club's history.

Vince will always be a hero to the Palace fans that saw him play, an exhilariting player who seemed destined for greater things than actually materialised, but still great and cherished memories and evocative of one the most enjoyable eras in my time following Palace.



NB - Just realised, the building you can see outside the Palace Boardroom where Vince is signing his first full professional terms - is Lady Edridge School, roughly where the Fanzone and those houses that are in Wooderson Close are sited now.

No, but on the face of it, it's a bit curious that Venables stole half the team to QPR (including 'stars' like Fenwick & Burridge) but didn't take Vince, who he would have had since a kid.

I suspect a lot of it will be about his time at Pompey. Mick Quinn's book about those years was hilarious - that team sounded like a complete nightmare (on and off the pitch) with Quinn, Noel Blake, Billy Gilbert, Mick Kennedy, plus Hilaire.

My first Palace hero...in fact my only Palace hero. ( Gerry queen and Don Rogers would have been my first but didn't really get to see them play live much)

A bright light in the dark times from 81 to 84.

Wanted to call my first son Vince. Either after the Vincent Motorbike or Vince Hilaire...wasnt allowed !!

He was rampant against the Weed in my first Palace match (3-1 Hilare 2), and I was hooked.

Can't wait for this!

Hope not. 7 years compared to 4 years of his career, many more games here, plus he had a dressing room with Sansom, Budgie, Cannon (did he have the same problems Wright had with him), Gerry Francis, crowd of 52k, being top of the league (for a week), the rise and collapse of the club, Malcolm Allison returning, Venables era, Ron coming in.....plus Billy Gilbert!! I'd say a healthy bit on his time at Pompey but an even healthier bit on his time here.

The one and only player ever who could do a whole body clean diving tackle from behind and use his right buttock as a fulcrum and lift himself back up and be flying away with the ball taken from a bemused opponent in 0.55 seconds.

Sure he’ll cover that in the book. From my memory, after being absolutely electric in our promotion season and the beginning of our season in the top flight, as Jim Cannon said, he was hugely inconsistent. But was still a shining light of hope along with Kevin Mabbutt, in a sea of absolute darkness at the time.

I do seem to recall there were always rumours that he’d move on but never seem to happen until Coppell arrived.

I remember both Kenny Sansom and Paul Hinshelwood performing that routine a few times too. It must have been something they worked on in training.

Jerry Murphy was a big reason we stayed up in them early 80 s
