When Sakho gets away with his risky, if intelligent, elaborations in defense he often sets up the structure for a great counter attack but we all know there's also a mistake just waiting to jump out. Tomkins plays within himself. He's basically got Dann's solidity with most of the speed of Sakho but none of the zaniness. If he was as dangerous from our set pieces as Dann, he'd be our main man. Shame we don't have a Defensive POTY because he'd walk it. But has no chance winning POTY with Wilf in the team.

Credit must be given to Roy and the system he has installed where everyone knows what is expected of them .Tomkins has flourished under Roys instruction and long may it continue .

If the call from Southgate does come Tomkins will find a different system ,strangers in the dressing room and possibly an unfamiliar partner on the pitch . From what I saw in his first months with us I would say it wouldn't be a pleasant time for him

What are you talking about? Allardyce’s preferred centre back pairing was Sakho & Tomkins when everyone was fit?

Tomkins illustrates the difference in managers like Pardew and Hodgson.

Whenever did we have everyone fit ?

I said 'for me he was third choice ' ( behind Sakho and Dann ) didn't say he was Allardyces .

Dann definitely isn't the player he was two years ago. A poor captain as well. He will be missed but not as much as if this had happened in the past.

Dann was just finding form again. A shame his injury has ruined that.

Tomkins is a great player, let's just hope his body can hold out for the rest of the season or at the very least until Sakho returns.

Always wanted Tomkins to come good. When we got him from West Ham I couldn't believe it. Him and Sakho first choice partnership when both are fit. Kelly is doing really well when he comes into the team as well. Defence looks reasonably solid again.

Best form of his Palace career. Think he's my favourite defender right now and maybe since promotion. Absolute class.

Superb battling performance from Tomkins tonight.

Wrap him up in cotton wool from now until the next league game.

Great player!!

Feels like he really belongs with us now. The first season was a bit stop start for him with injuries. He was also adjusting to leaving his boyhood club W Ham.

I think he feels like an important player for us and that he truly belongs here. Great to see.
