Around 1975/1976 we were averaging more in the old 3rd division, now in 1978/1979 we were getting lower crowds at the top of the 2nd.
yes, same here. Remember the top of the table clash v Stoke at home only getting 23,000 when I was used to big games breaking the 30,000 mark and sometimes even 40,000. Probably to do with big away support being allowed to be two or three times the 2,800 of today also.

A few years earlier v Chesterfield in the third div we got 25,000!

The unpredictability of the crowd size was a great part of the excitement leading up to plenty of games back then. All very samey now of course.

I can lay claim to be one of the last in the ground (or the last 801 anyway). I always went into the enclosure in front of the old stand as it was then. They closed the entrances about three people ahead of me so had to dash around to the Holmesdale where they were still letting people in.

I was there too - middle of the Holmesdale -got there about 5:30. Remember snacking on a pack of Mr. Kipling's Almond Slices - just as well I brought something because we could not move by 6:30 or so...

Same for me. Quite poignant that it was the last Palace game my Dad ever attended.

I can't recall snow. I thought it rained really hard that night.

But my memory is so crap that you're probably right.

Count me in. Went with my brother and sister, driving from Southampton. Couldn't believe the amount of traffic getting to the ground and size of the crowd.

Tremendous end to a tremendous season.

I went to John Fisher and our group consisted of a mix from both schools. Roughly the same age so maybe we have mutual friends.
