Events[edit]

Controversy[edit]

  • 15 August 2009

During a game between Bristol City and Crystal Palace, Freddie Sears scored a goal that ricocheted off the stanchion and went back out, but the linesman didn't see the goal and so it was disallowed.[41] Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock called for a replay.[42] Following the game, the three officials were suspended until it could be solved.[43]

  • 28 November 2009

The tie between Plymouth and Barnsley was abandoned after 58 minutes because of heavy rain affecting the pitch. Barnsley were winning 4–1 and manager Mark Robins argued that it was a "let off" for Plymouth and that the travelling Barnsley fans should be reimbursed.[44] The postponed match took place on 30 March, where it ended in a 0–0 draw.[45]

Crystal Palace administration[edit]

On 27 January 2010, the Football League had announced that Crystal Palace had been placed into administration and Sheffield firm P&A Partnership were appointed as administrators for the club. Palace were deducted ten points and dropped from 9th to 21st.[46] They managed to survive another season in the Championship, but only after drawing 2–2 with Sheffield Wednesday on the final day and confined Wednesday to League One football in 2010–11.[47]
