August 27th, 2014
Crystal Palace have spent a great deal of time searching for a new manager, with Malky Mackay having originally been the first choice, while Tim Sherwood might also have got the job had he not withdrawn his application.
It appears that the Eagles are now returning to a former Palace manager, with Neil Warnock set to return to Premier League management at Selhurst Park where he has previously enjoyed a three-year stint.
Warnock was at Palace between 2007 and 2010, steering the London club into the Championship play-offs during his first season in charge only to lose to Bristol City.
The rest of Warnock’s tenure wasn’t so successful as the club struggled with administration although the 65-year-old returns to a much happier outfit, with Palace having survived the drop last season thanks to the input of Pulis.
Warnock pipped Steve Clarke to the vacant position, with owner Steve Parish having seen original choice Mackay ruled out after Cardiff City revealed a series of offensive text messages that the Scot sent while manager of the Welsh club.
To compound matters, director of football Iain Moody left the club which saw Palace revise their list of managers who could possibly take charge of Palace and it appears that Warnock will be given the chance to keep the team in the Premier League.
