1 min read

On this day, April 17th, 2022, Crystal Palace fans may still feel the sting of their FA Cup semi-final defeat at Wembley, but it’s also a moment to reminisce on a remarkable journey.

The Eagles embarked on their FA Cup adventure with a spirited win away at Millwall in January. Michael Olise’s inspiring performance silenced the Den, setting the tone for a memorable run. The gesture of subsidizing away fans’ coaches and supporting the medical fund for an opposition manager’s wife exemplified the club’s class and compassion.

Subsequent victories against Hartlepool and Stoke City showcased Palace’s determination and unity, with standout performances from players like Marc Guéhi and Olise. Tayo Adaramola’s debut added to the sense of occasion, highlighting the club’s commitment to nurturing young talent.

The quarter-final clash against Everton witnessed Palace’s finest display of the season, as they secured a convincing victory, earning a coveted spot at Wembley. Despite a valiant effort against Chelsea in the semi-final, with near misses and impressive saves, Palace fell short.

Nevertheless, the atmosphere at Wembley, with thousands of red and blue balloons adorning the stands, was a testament to the passion and pride of Palace supporters. It was a day to cherish, showcasing the unity and spirit of the club and its fans.

While the journey may have ended at Wembley, the memories of Palace’s FA Cup run will endure. Here’s to hoping for more magical moments in the future.
