Ian Wright tweets about unbelievable Palace memories - but are things even better now?

The former Crystal Palace striker took to Twitter on Monday night.

Ian Wright took to Twitter to look back at some 'unbelievable times' at Crystal Palace on Monday night.

Promotion in 1989 was the subject of his celebration, while there were plenty of similar memories in the years to come. Palace have enjoyed promotion more than once since and also reached an FA Cup final.

But are things even better for the south London side now than they were with Wright - and, indeed, ever?

Alan Pardew's men currently sit sixth in the Premier League and that's even after a recent defeat. Their summer recruitment attracted Yohan Cabaye to Selhurst Park. The atmosphere at the ground, meanwhile, is as good as it has ever been if not better.

Palace appear to be in safe hands under the stewardship of Steve Parish, possess quality throughout their squad and have matched some of the top flight's best teams both this season and last.

True, Crystal Palace are missing a Wright. Dwight Gayle, who was absolutely brainless against West Ham United on Saturday afternoon, doesn't quite compare.

But, overall, Palace are in one of their strongest positions ever. Is it the finest period in their history or is that a stretch too far?
