What names are getting touted around?

I don't know why but I have a feeling Glenn Hoddle will be the next manager. He was been linked with Reading already after his sacking at Spurs and this would be an ideal opportunity for him to salvage some pride and reputation as a manager

I haven't heard any names.

But Palace have been rubbish this season, not the same team from last season. Wigan are currently top, so it was always going to be tough for him last weekend.

First name to be linked was Hoddle in todays media but he's apparantly rejected the opportunity of taking the job. Would have been ideal imo for him but I guess he wants to take time off football or look for a bigger job.

Joe Kinnear has said that he'd like a go at the palace job he must be mad Fans choice would probably be Ian Dowie.

i think it will be bit difficult for hoddle to settle into lower division. his experiences have been in top flight.

Same here, he did a fantastic job at Luton and was sacked for no reason

:depress: Spurs have got a bye into the 4th round
Symons' has tightened up the defence but at the expense of the little attacking idea we have
We might as well have left Francis in charge
As for results under Kit.....
H Preston 1-1
A Walsall 0-0
A Stoke 1-0
H Coventry 1-1
A Villa 0-3
A Preston 1-4
H Crewe 1-3
H Forest 1-0

Palace appoint Iain Dowie

EAGLES APPOINT DOWIE
Friday 19th December 2003

Dowie: set for Selhurst Park

Iain Dowie has quit Oldham to take charge of former club Crystal Palace the Second Division outfit have confirmed.
The Latics official website has revealed that Dowie informed the club on Friday evening that he would be leaving to take up the post at Selhurst Park.

Oldham granted the former Northern Ireland international permission to speak with Palace earlier on Friday, and Dowie quickly agreed terms with The Eagles.

The 38-year-old will take over from defender Kit Symons who had been in caretaker charge since Palace dismissed Steve Kember last month.

The South Londoners currently sit 21st in Division One - fourth from bottom - having won just three of their past 20 league games.

Dowie had been working under severe financial constraints at Oldham, and the chance to test himself with the club who he served in the late 1990s proved too tempting to reject.

Selhurst Park will become the third stop in Dowie's fledgling managerial career having served at Queens Park Rangers prior to his appointment with Oldham in May 2002.

Latics chief executive Alan Hardy confirmed that experienced playing duo John Sheridan and David Eyres had been put in temporary charge of first team affairs at least until the club came out of administration.

Good, hope he can knock our bunch of slackers into shape

Wel good luck to Ian Dowie, I hope he can keep the Eagles in Div 1.

He's still ugly though

After 2 games under Iain Dowie things are looking brighter. A 0-1 defeat at home to Millwall on boxing day despite playing the 'wall off the park in the 2nd half. Hit the woodwork 3 times, missed a pen,shots off the line, just one of those days
3-1 win at Ipswich Showed some good old fighting spirit to come from behind and win this one, 2 more goals for the magnificent Andrew Johnson
Looking forward to the Spurs in the cup now, we'll either win or get caned

Finally I get to see Palace play again, and two weeks in a row! The match against Norwich just started, and next weekend the same Norwegian channel is showing the match against WBA.

It finished 1-0 to Palace :depress:

with young Wayne Routledge getting the goal.


Apparently Palace deserved it,
and I had a feeling this would be another slip up, especially with around 8,000 Canaries fans in the ground! :rollani:

Orange, you're a
Not a classic in terribly windy conditions, but just about deserved i think
Wayne got the goal but Michael Hughes was mom for me
Surprisingly, Norwich fielded 3 ex Palace players, Svensson, Edworthy and McKenzie, and none of them scored
Baggies next week

Did you go to the game EagleMart?

Both commentators said that it was the best match they had seen this season from division one, and I have to agree. None of the teams ever pulled back to defend, and there were plenty of great chances both ways. Norwich didn't wake up until the second half though, as Palace dominated in the first half.

Routledge wasn't bad, but he was a bit slow at sending crosses into the box. Michael Hughes had a great game, I would only criticise him for holding the ball too long in counter attacks. Vasean had a fantastic save towards the end of the game, and Andrew Johnson fought incredibly hard throughout the game, being all over the field.

A well deserved win, and I can only hope for a similar effort against the Baggies.

Yeah, I've got a season ticket in the Holmesdale.
It was a decent game, we play better against teams who come to play rather than shut up shop and defend. It got a bit tense at the end when Norwich forced several corners but Dowie's instilled a never say die attitude into the players that was lacking under Kember(credit to Kit Symons as well).
Routledge could do with a rest to be fair, but we've only got Tommy Black who can play that position and he can be a bit brainless at times
How did you think Liegertwood played?I thought he did a good job screening the back four and doubling up on huckerby, his touch was a bit heavy at times though.

Actually I think none of the players had a bad match at all, Leigertwood did very well, but I have to say that all the players did. I can only hope for a similar performance next weekend.
