It was a record at the time but it was usurped by a dreadful Stoke team just a few seasons later.

In the premier League era (four games fewer of course) Sunderland and then Derby 'improved' the benchmark.

Ipswich at home was my second game as a 7 year old, the first being a very solid 2-0 home win against a good Aston Villa side a couple of weeks earlier. I still have pretty vivid memories of my experience that day.

That Ipswich side weren't used to being completely outclassed, but that's what happened to them on that day
They got their own back in the return match. It was the Muhren/Thijssen show and they were a class above.

Gosh I have so many memories from this, my first trip away outside of London (I think), to Leeds , Sunderland and Chelsea in the cup run, The match V Burnley to win promotion. (I hold the Croydon Advertiser and maybe the Daily mail back pages on that), but best of all the amazing away game at Wrexham to win by two clear goals for promotion out of the old 3rd Div.. It was level with one minute left, and we got two goals in the final minute! Not much extra time in those days either.

I remember when he made his debut for Palace it was as a center forward and was probably one of the most inept performances I have ever seen from a Palace player (at the time). It was to the point of just feeling sorry for him.

To go from that point to where he ended up would support your "most improved player" statement. Kudos to whoever got him to convert to right back, although I guess it took a long time for Palace fans to fully appreciate him, and always seemed to be somewhat of an undeserved cult figure.

This brings back lots of good memories. Remember Hinshelwood’s near post header into the Holmesdale opening the scoring against Ipswich. The attendances at the other games in the above newspaper extract are also really interesting.

Iirc the protagonist during this period had a positive contribution but also the most negative.

Great memories for a while . Makes you think why we ( and most clubs ) struggle to bring through such young talent nowadays .

I can’t wait for this!

Be great if could get hold of Murphy, Doris, Gilbert, Nicholas, Walsh. Even get them all in the same room! Tough ask. A big reunion is needed to mark promotion 40 years ago. Take some organising that!

Ipswich game was my first ever game. Sadly, I was only five so can’t remember going top or seeing Cannon’s wonder goal.
