Inside Today's Palace Programme

28 August 2016

After a three-week absence the Crystal Palace matchday programme is back for today's visit of Stoke City, and once again it is packed with great content to enhance your enjoyment of the game.

James Tomkins graces the front cover and in his first in-depth interview as an Eagle, he talks us through his thought process of ending his 19-year association with West Ham United to make the move to SE25:

“It’s been a little bit weird going from one club to another having been somewhere for so long, that’s only natural. I’ll keep an interest in how they do as I still have a lot of friends there, but my concentration is now here. 

"This is a massive club, the training facilities are good and the coaching staff are recognisable faces for me. As well as the manager I’ve known Kevin Keen and Andy Woodman previously and Keith [Millen] has been brilliant since I’ve been here, but everyone from the kit man to the media staff have made me feel welcome. There’s a nice feel around the club.”

We also spoke to another new boy in Mathieu Flamini, who discusses what he will bring to the squad and why he turned down opportunities across Europe to join Palace.

Joe Ledley is the focus of your Twitter questions, with topics including beards, fashion and Wayne Hennessey's sleeping habits, and in the Flashbacks section we reflect on a John Salako-inspired 4-1 thrashing of the Potters from October 1994 and speak to John Humphrey, who made over 200 appearances for the Eagles during that era.

Alan Pardew, Scott Dann and Steve Parish have their say in their usual columns, and there is all the latest news and reports from all the club's other teams, plus included in the Junior Eagles postermag is a giant A2 poster of Wilfried Zaha celebrating against Middlesbrough last week.

All this is available for just £3.50, and can be bought from sellers around the ground, the club shop, in the fanzone or the programme shop on Holmesdale Road, so make sure you grab your copy today!

If you can't make it to the game, then you can still get stuck into all this by downloading the digital version to your iPad or Android device for just £1.49.
