Having squeezed onto the Holmesdale Road terracing as a youngster and represented Palace’s youth team, half a century later Roy Hodgson is back in his native south London managing his boyhood team. Here, he talks about his memories of watching the Glaziers in the 1950s, his lengthy career in the game and how he feels about it coming full circle.
It was always going to be a tough decision, but Wilfried Zaha has got what he wanted. After deciding to switch his international allegiance from England to the Ivory Coast, the Eagles winger is hoping to now make a belated mark on the world stage for club and country.
Having been a part of the furniture at West Ham United, James Tomkins ultimately didn't make the move to their new London Stadium over the summer. Deciding the time was right to try something else, he opted for a fresh start across the city and is already enjoying the new surroundings.
Despite growing up in east London, Andros Townsend’s journey to SE25 has been a long and winding one. The Eagles will be the 12th club of his professional career but he is hoping that after putting pen to paper on a five-year contract last month he’ll be able to call Selhurst Park home for the foreseeable future.
These are 10 words that will strike fear into Premier League defences and get Palace fans even more excited for 2016. On 200 occasions they've gasped and cheered at the local boy done good’s displays in red and blue, and on the occasion of his double century of Eagles games his promise that there’s even more to come can only raise excitement levels in SE25 for what the next 12 months may bring.
When Wilfried Zaha, Yannick Bolasie and co are in full flight, Martin Kelly has one of the best views in football. Sat behind the explosive, exciting wingers is a man who is happy to unceremoniously tidy up and give them the ball so he can watch them do their thing, and with two clean sheets in a row and the Eagles flying high in the table, the plan seems to be working to perfection.
