A lot of Crystal Palace fans are discussing Stan Collymore after a fan made a point about the player after seeing his highlights in a victory when he played for Nottingham Forest.
FYPFanzine commented on the player, saying: “Watching this does make you wonder how Palace had let Collymore go just three years previously.”
After nearly two years of learning his trade as an understudy to the prolific Crystal Palace partnership of Mark Bright and Ian Wright, Collymore dropped down a division in the autumn of 1992 to sign for Southend United and there scored 18 goals in 33 games to help keep the club in Division One.
He would later move to Nottingham Forest and then in 1995 score a great goal in a 2-1 victory against his old club Crystal Palace.
His career continued to be successful as he moved to Liverpool, scoring 35 goals in 81 games, via LFChistory.net, but failed to pick up any silverware. The attacker is now a pundit, both online and on the radio.
It would have been interesting whether the forward would have had a similar rise in his career had he stayed at Selhurst Park.
Here is what fans had to say about the player:
Because he was rotten when he was with Palace

Have to say, as an attender of the reserves games at the time, I was surprised and very disappointed at Collymore leaving

Me too. He scored an incredible goal one night having run around half of the opposition having picked the ball up on half way.

Thanks so much for posting this. My first time at Selhurst. Colleymore was unplayable that day, and the comedy assist for our consolation, the deeply tongue in cheek ‘Dowie Wonderland’ that greeted his goal and the acknowledgement we were thumped 2-1 completely hooked me. PTID.

Stan certainly enjoyed those goals going in. Certainly let him go too easy.

Undeniable talent which was why we signed him, but he didn’t fit in. The chemistry has to work.
