Cracking finish from Twine. A very strong pre-season showing from Twine who, given the current personnel deserves a place on the bench against Charlton at the very least.

TBH if he can't get on the bench in a league cup game there seems little point him being here (for either party)

He did drift out of games and it was said at the time that he didn't always show up away from home.  Obviously overlooking his threat on such days could be costly, so covering and marking him would always be a relative priority for opponents. 

Paul Reaney of the great Leeds side shut him up in an FAC 1/4 final at the CG once.

But he was discovered rather than found out at the top level, Geoff.  He scored 15 goals in 35 appearances as a winger in the top flight (to add to the 7 he had already scored for Town in 16 in the second tier).  It wasn't just the goals that continued as before however.  The Don's performances generated such excitement on a now national stage that there were tabloid calls for his England selection.  He remains a cult hero with older Palace fans to this day.

He won "goal of the season" but his performance against Man Utd was perhaps the epitome of the excitement he generated. 





Nice one, Red!  Id not seen those highlights before.  It brought back just how good he was, and that he was more of a team player than I remember.  And on a ploughed field as well!  Let us just agree that The Don was very special indeed! Clap

I think its safe to say that his like has only really been seen twice in our 140 year history, the other being the great Harold Fleming.

It took 30 years to find Harold, it then took another 50 years to find Rogers, we are about due another one now.....

Given our recent signings, Tom Smith's time has finally come, the Ginger Bobby Charlton.
