Crystal Palace have confirmed the appointment of their new manager, Neil Warnock. Warnock returns to Selhurst Park for his second spell as The Eagles boss, after the untimely departure of Tony Pulis just a day before the season began. Warnock has been out of work since he left Leeds last year.
The 65-year old is one of those managers that has certainly been around the block, and personally I’m not sure Crystal Palace have appointed the best possible candidate here. Warnock’s top flight ventures have usually ended badly, and I bet the odds on Crystal Palace getting relegated have been swiftly shortened.
First off there was Malky Mackay, who obviously didn’t work out for one reason or another. They’ve also been heavily linked to other managers such as former West Brom boss Steve Clarke, and ex-Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood.
Having to settle for Warnock must be rather disappointing for Palace fans, after such a successful second half of the season last campaign.
