Next Match:

Stoke City (A) Wed 4 Mar 2015, 19:45, Barclays Premier League

As part of the retro theme surrounding Saturday’s fixture with Norwich City, the matchday programme has been given a one-off redesign.

A throwback to the early 70s, the programme has been given a retro feel with a simple colour scheme and layout, featuring a black and white image of Blues front-man Nikica Jelavic.

On the back are a number of little details that hark back to programmes of old, and will hopefully augment the many other old-fashioned features on show throughout the day.

Whilst the cover enjoys a one-off new look, the content is its usual thorough self. Having stepped in to cover Tony Hibbert’s absence in style, Republic of Ireland full-back Seamus Coleman is the featured player.

The 24-year old has enjoyed a run of games in the Blues’ starting line-up and is looking to force his way into the thinking of both his domestic and international manager.

Elsewhere, former Toffees Academy star Nathan Craig is the latest ex-Blue to fall under the Remember Me microscope. In it, he talks about his Everton debut, following his mates in the Under-21s and broken promises following his release.

As part of our in depth look at our visitors, we pick out five Canaries to keep an  eye on this afternoon, analyse the rise of Chris Hughton from Spurs’ legendary left-back top flight manager, and catch up with ex-Toffee and current City Academy coach Neil Adams.

Finally, we have a very special MyPod. Following his superb points victory over Roberto Bolonti in his recent fight, we caught up with Blues fan and WBC silver light-heavyweight champion Tony Bellew to talk all things music and what gets him through the months of tough training ahead of a fight. With the Liverpudlian a regular visitor to Finch Farm, he also dishes the dirt on the musical tastes of some of the players!

Still priced just £3, this special edition is not to be missed, and will no doubt become something of a collector’s item in years to come. Pick up yours around the ground tomorrow.
