Key Players

Nathaniel Clyne : Another product of the Crystal Palace academy, Nathaniel Clyne made his first team debut in 2008 and has gone on to make 68 appearances in all competitions scoring one goal. A full back very much in the 'Ashley Cole` mould, Clyne is as equally adept attacking the channels as he is defending and tracking back. The highly rated right-back has attracted interest from Premier League sides Birmingham and Wolves in recent months turning down the latter to develop his talent at Selhurst Park.

Julian Speroni : The Argentinean goalkeeper is one of the fans favourites at Palace due to his consistent performances and fanstastic shot-stopping ability. Speroni signed from Dundee in 2004 where he played over 100 games. Hailed by Neil Warnock as "one of the best in the country" Speroni`s reputation has increased every year as he continues to be one of the most consistent Championship performers. The keeper has made 180 appearances to date for The Eagles.
