When was the last time we beat a team in a higher division than us

Recommended Posts

Can't think of the answer myself, i would guess it was the year when we won the League ( Rumblelows ) cup

Do remember a 1-0 win at villa park,

Didnt Ekoku score?

Also seem to remember a win at Upton Park, Lampard scored for them i think.

First time since 1891 that we've won an FA Cup tie, awa from home, against a team a division above us.

November 2000 - Owen Morrison and Ashley Westwood (!) scored in a 2-1 win at West Ham.

September 2001 - Di Piedi, Bonvin, Morrison and Ekoku as we beat Sunderland 4-2.

November 2001 - Ekoku got the only goal at Villa Park.

Well, what about Palace in '73. I know it was a second replay and technically a neutral venue, but we were still away from home! :biggrin:

That's astonishing if it's true.

But haven't we spent about half of our existence in the top flight when that has been impossible anyway and a few years in the third tier when we'd have to get through to the third round to even get a chance?

Correct. League Cup 2001 I think. Going out to Blackburn Rovers in the semi final. Think it finished 5-2. Can remember lancs police being reyt heavy handed weilded batons at innocent men women n kids.

Think you might be right Kivo, in which case today has probably ended the worst "away" record in football history! :biggrin:
