One of my family works at Stoke and after the Palace game brought home a programme for me to look at. They will claim that it's an 84 page programme and great value (no doubt) at only £3.50. However, having gone through it, there's 23 pages with actual reading material on them (some articles go to 3/4 pages but are padded out with photos but I've still included them as reading material) and there's 3 pages of fixtures / scores. So, even at a push, less than 50% of this monster is something that could capture attention for longer than you would look at a photo or read an advert.

And we wonder why programmes seem to be on the road to nowhere!

Sounds like they're following the German/Scandanavian model, well done.
