Crystal Palace fans can largely be a forgiving lot and that’s certainly shown itself to be true when it comes to a certain Mr John Bostock and his decision to leave Selhurst Park a number of years ago.
Having come through the Palace ranks, he made his professional debut for the club aged only 15-years-old as a 72nd-minute substitute in the Championship tie with Watford. He went on to make a total of five appearances for us before he jumped ship to Tottenham Hotspur for an initial £700,000.

His spell at Tottenham only saw him make four appearances and the now 26-year-old then began his journey around clubs with numerous loan spells, time in the MLS, Belgium, France and he now finds himself in Turkey with Bursaspor.
Suffice to say his original switch caused plenty of consternation within the club and the fanbase, but he has been welcomed back to Selhurst Park for an interview where he discusses the switch and the preview of that interview has gone down well.
Time can be a great healer it seems.
Anyone who gets emotional and loves #cpfc is ok by me. We all make mistakes. Wish him well.

Very interesting to see what he has to say, made a massive mistake but still dont think it was his own fault alone

I fine it hard to blame a 15 year old for making a bad decision. That young it would of legally been he’s parents decision and they would of been promised the world.

Would be great to see him back in red and blue if it was at all possible quality player made a base judgement error as a boy or realistically someone else gave him some shit advice!

Wow I genuinely cannot wait to see this, anyone who gets emotional when returning to the Arthur Wait is one of our own. Young lad made a mistake and was blinded by money, you can’t blame him needless to say but forgive the lad and welcome him back Selhurst #cpfc
