THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

4 October ~ Crystal Palace visit Anfield this weekend after eight years out of the Premier League. In 1989, also coming back from an eight-year absence in the top flight, the Eagles travelled to face Liverpool early in the season. The Reds demolished them 9-0 and went on to win what to this day is their last League trophy. Palace avoided relegation and took revenge later in that season, beating Liverpool 4-3 in the FA Cup semi-final before losing to Manchester United in the final after a replay.
