Back in the Day: October 22nd - Paddy McCarthy's Eagle Celebration at Ipswich

Back in the Day

Saturday 22nd October 1983

Grimsby Town 2-0 Crystal Palace

League Division Two – Att: 6,075

Manager: Alan Mullery

Nothing more to be said other than yet another loss under Alan Mullery.

Tuesday 22nd October 1992

Crystal Palace 4-2 Southend United

After Extra Time

Zenith Data Systems Cup 2nd Round – Att: 7,185

Manager: Steve Coppell

Crystal Palace began their defence of the Full Members Cup with a 4-2 win over Southend at Selhurst Park. The visitors did not go quietly into the night, however.

Dave Webb’s Southend led at the break through a Keith Jones goal, but goals from Eddie McGoldrick (57) and Mark Bright (61) looked to be sending Palace through to the next round. However, Brett Angell would take it to extra time though with a strike eight minutes from time.

In the first period of extra time goals from Geoff Thomas (98) and Andy Gray (102) would be enough to see off the lower league opposition and set up a tie with QPR in the 3rd Round.

A young Dean Austin turned out for Southend in this one.

Saturday 22nd October 2005

Crystal Palace 2-0 Burnley

Championship – Att: 20,127

Manager: Iain Dowie

After losing to Brighton in midweek, the Crystal Palace fans were looking for a response against Burnley – we got it.

Saturday 22nd October 2011

Ipswich Town 0-1 Crystal Palace

Championship – Att: 24,763

Manager: Dougie Freedman

Crystal Palace moved up to third in the Championship thanks to a Paddy McCarthy goal ten minutes after the break. On the day Wilfried Zaha and Sean Scannell were just too much for Ipswich to handle and the scoreline should have read as a much wider win for Palace.

This was the third win on the bounce and the fourth in a five-match unbeaten run. Obviously, the form would become patchy after this win and we went winless until December 10th (3D 4L), but with hindsight, this was probably the early signs of what would follow the following season if Palace could add a couple more players – like Damien Delaney who played in this one for Town.
