Frame not included.

Chosen by Giles Paley-Phillips as their favourite ever goal:

This goal is from one of the first games I ever saw Palace play, a crucial second-leg playoff game at Selhurst Park against Blackburn Rovers, back in the days when the playoffs were played over two legs, home and away. Palace were 3-0 down from the first leg. The atmosphere was incredible, there was something truly exciting about the Palace team that drew me towards them, they played very direct, attacking football, and had many electric players who could turn games on their head. This goal was the first, in the tie, Alan Pardew is flying down the left-wing and hits the ball with the outside of his right foot, unusually flash for Alan Pardew, and the brilliant Ian Wright comes flying in at the back post to slot it home as the ground erupts.
