Not sure what to make of this but oddschecker are no longer showing prices for Mauricio Pellegrino who was linked with Palace a few days ago. He was previously on the board at 40-1.

He's just said he's announcing his future on Monday.

He's done and exceptional job with alaves. Worked in PL under Rafa. Is highly thought of by all accounts

Hmmmmm his most successful periods are in Argentina and has gotten the tin tack for underperforming rather than leaving from all his jobs.

Of the managers we could go for now Silva is out it would be Flores, Monk, Dyche. At least they all have actual premier league management experience and recently.

Half of our squad are foreign. A number of our owners are foreign. Every premier league appointment to date has been made in order to stop our season from unravelling and so the managers we appoint have needed to have premier league experience. The only managers with successful experience in the premier league and who have been interested in joining us have been British. It's that simple.

He said he only joined Alaves for one year so that he could exorcise bad memories of relegation there in 2005-6 as a player.

One of his last appearances for Liverpool was in April 2005 when we beat them 1-0 and he was subbed off in the 54th minute.

Perhaps he's anxious to lay another ghost by coming here as manager.

I read he's keen to manage in the Premier League and follow in his mate's (Pochettino's) footsteps.

Millwall/Pardew didn't get to ninth in the league in the same season though.

The only top flight clubs they played were Deportivo who were just outside the relegation spots who they drew with twice and won on away goals, and Celta Vigo who they beat with a late goal in the 2nd leg days before they went to Atletico and the week before their UEFA Cup game so how high priority for Celta?

Finishing 9th in that league with a newly promoted side it a good achievement though and he seems tactically astute so like the idea of him.

GreatGonzo
01-06-2017, 11:23 AM
Chelsea I can agree with but Liverpool?! Get out :D

We beat the best team Liverpool could put out.

Alaves faced a goalkeeper in his only game of the season and a defence that managed 21 starts that season between them (3 in this game) plus Mascherano in defence at a guess.

Busquets and Rakitic played as well as Neymar but they (alongside Mascherano) were the only 'regular' 1st team players playing.

1-2 at the Camp Nou is never easy but there is also significant context to that game missing from just the scoreline.

Millwall got to a major Cup final here in recent years. Pardew got to one with us. It isn't the very top A grade football (although naturally we pretend it is when we are doing well in it).

True, but we beat a very difficult set of teams to reach it. Millwall, if memory serves me correctly, had a f'king doddle of cup run, as did the 1990 team frankly...

The only top flight clubs they played were Deportivo who were just outside the relegation spots who they drew with twice and won on away goals, and Celta Vigo who they beat with a late goal in the 2nd leg days before they went to Atletico and the week before their UEFA Cup game so how high priority for Celta?

Finishing 9th in that league with a newly promoted side it a good achievement though and he seems tactically astute so like the idea of him.

Celta were well up for it, it was the Atletico game they dismissed.

We beat the best team Liverpool could put out.

Alaves faced a goalkeeper in his only game of the season and a defence that managed 21 starts that season between them (3 in this game) plus Mascherano in defence at a guess.

Busquets and Rakitic played as well as Neymar but they (alongside Mascherano) were the only 'regular' 1st team players playing.

1-2 at the Camp Nou is never easy but there is also significant context to that game missing from just the scoreline.
Yeah the Barca team of that day still shits all over the Liverpool team we beat, make a combined 11 out of the two and only Coutinho, Matip and Clyne would make it. And that's not even considering Messi, Suarez and Iniesta off the bench versus errmmm, Moreno, Alexander Arnold and Grujic.

If Pellegrino has a good relationship with Sammy Lee, it seems a good fit to me. If he trusts Sammy, all the information to identify strengths and weaknesses in the squad as well as tactics that suit the players will be there and it should be a smooth transition to continue Allardyce's work.

From a tactical perspective, Pellegrino tends to play a 4-2-3-1 system, but he did produce a masterclass away at Barcelona earlier in the campaign, claiming a 2-1 win at the Camp Nou with a 5-4-1 setup – two systems that could mesh well with the current talent at Palace.

Well I know nothing about the guy except what I've read up. Coming off the back of a good season and that's about it as far as his management CV goes. Been in charge at four clubs, sacked by two. Could be a good appointment and personally I'd rather take a punt on him than Roy Hodgson, however there is nothing he has done that supports the level of excitement shown on here. IMO Dyche would be a better option but also we could probably do worse.

Other analysis suggests he can have a team set up to play 4-2-3-1 or 4-4-2 but able to adapt into other formations for games or during games depending on need including 5 at the back.

The full backs/wing backs were apparently 2 of their best players during teh season so likes attacking full backs.

This Pellergrino chap sounds like just the fit for our club.

As for Dyche.......i'm not 100% sure. I like him but there's something about him I can't put my finger on. Maybe it's attracting the type of player to take us forward. Is this even true that his made it clear he'd be interested in the job. With respect to Burnley, yes we're a bigger draw but I feel a tad uncomfortable if his made his intentions clear rather than us approaching him.

Palace Yankee
02-06-2017, 12:46 AM
That is exactly what would concern me.
That was my first thought, but then consider at Alaves the greatest miracle job one could pull off would be a distant 4th or a cup win. England offers a better shot at a meaningful top 10 or even Europe if all the cards fell his way.

He's Argentine, so Basque country is as foreign as London. If he did well at Palace he could end up at a bigger Spanish club or put himself on track for managing his national side.

If Sammy Lee and Allardyce give a recommendation it may be worth a roll.

A little misleading that. At Milan he was an assistant, and took the Valencia job as his first major role. Valencia is regarded as something of a basket case club, a very hard manage especially as a first job (hi Gary!), not sure what happened with him there though.

Then he returned to Argentina where it appears he went season to season with two large clubs, before a full season at Alaves, where he's been regarded as a success.

It's more of a gamble than Dyche, who would be the safer option no doubt. However he would also cost the club money to get out of his contract, and is perhaps not as enticing to players and supporters. Nor has he, that i am aware, ever really played in a style befitting our current team, while apparently MP has done so throughout his managerial career.

Assuming both are available and keen, then it's a very difficult choice IMHO.

Parish needs to get a move on

Whats the rush? End up with another Allardyce who is only interested in short term, or Pardew who talks alot of talk but doenst back it up, or Warnock who onlys wants to have a lovely time, or Pulis who wants to bleed the club, or Holloway who loses his bottle, or Freedman who wants to use the club as a stepping stone, or Burley who is a drunk.

... maybe its best to think about it for abit and get the right person while there is a long while before pre-season starts. We could get Sherwood in if you just want someone in for the hell of it.

Take your time CPFC.

I think alot if it people like the sound of a name or the idea of a manager rather than actually knowing anything, its funny if you look back at the old posts of when we were looking for managers and people suggesting Di Matteo, Mackay or Sherwood as they were 'hot names' at the time. Just leave it to Parish, I havent got a clue what makes a good manager for our club.

Wouldn't say no chance at this stage but I understand Parish has reservations about whether he can attract the kind of players we need to take us forward. Dyche's agent made contact with Parish a few days after Allardyce resigned so clearly some interest from his end.

He got pissy when I called him out for getting Ian Wright's signing wrong by five years: despite him claiming to have seen Wright play early in his career.

He's full of shit. He constantly throws out junk: so much that he will claim to have known in advance.

I wonder if he will do us the favor of shutting up if the new manager is not in place by Monday.

That's been my concern with him. Rather him than any of the other British names mentioned, but it all depends how ambitious we want to be really. Players of the ilk of a Sakho and Benteke, fairly or unfairly, will be more attracted to more established managers in the game.

But which Monday? He has a 1 in 7 chance there, probably better odd than most of his guess bets. (Im ignoring the Giggs part, that has to be sucide for the club)

Why.
Compared to when Tony Pulis Left,the Day before the Season Started,there is Plenty of Time.
The,Transfer Window,Doesn't Close until the End of August & its a Long Season.
Take your Time & Get it Right.

I'd be certain contact would have been made with his representatives expressing our interest, at the very least.

'no chance' is wrong, we a have a slim chance of getting Dyche IMHO.

Doesnt mean we made an offer though, just because Silva went to Watford doesnt mean we missed out. He is the Emperor's new clothes at the moment.
