Albion was an early kick-off - I'd reckon at about noon as back at my girlfriend's (now wife) in time to be dragged back into town to go shopping...

I loved Kent Nielsen. Didn't BFR describe him as "lightning slow?"

My first season of going regularly. My highlight were the win over the champions Arsenal at christmas. The cup tie against Port Vale sticks in my mind too, hammering them 6-0 when it pissed it down all day.

For me we were never the same after that 3-0 defeat against Wimbledon but along with 92/93 and 95/96 this was my favourite season following the Villa.

I went to every game bar Palace away for some reason.  I'd say it was my favourite season following the Villa - some of the away days highlighted in other posts were just magical...as were my flares and pastel sweatshirts...and long hair (sob)

You wore flares in 89/90?

Flares were big again around that time, just not the brown, polystyrene, low waist bell bottom types that Des was wearing.

Was that when Garry Thompson scored what was possibly his only goal in a Palace shirt and we lost 1-0? I was there and I think it was the only time I ever sat in the seats at Selhurst Park. Whenever I saw us play Charlton or Wimbledon there I stood behind the goal.

It was a beautifully sunny day, but we were dire. I think that was also the game where scenes from The Firm were filmed, Gary Oldman appears on the metal stairway in the opposite corner of the ground to where we were sat.

Wasn't some of a 'football hooligan' film or TV programme filmed in the car park at Villa Park?

The Firm had a scene filmed at Palace ( you could here Villa being sung in background ). I think it was in our promotional season.
