Sounds like he'll be following Woy to Palace, having worked alongside him at Fulham and England.

Will be great to see him back at Selhurst! :p

Him getting injured alongside some of the players was why we went down in 98!

Is calling Roy Hodgson 'Woy' acceptable now? Seems incredibly childish.

Hopefully he isn't replacing Sammy Lee.

As I recall, he wasn't injured, he went to hospital for a minor operation and got blood poisoning.

Who remembers his great career playing for Palace as well?

Oh, only Mark Goldberg.

Some of the press seem to think so.

And insulting. Sun-level tabloid crap.

Sammy worked with Hodgson in the England set-up so I wouldn't be surprised to see both him and Ray Lewington involved.

We certainly wouldn't be lacking in experience!

Don't mind this at all, besides the Palace connection, that people get so riled up about, he's actually a very good coach and has been throughout his career.

Welcome aboard the Mary Celeste.

You may well be right there.

I know that several people in and around the club at the time believed that his disappearance from the training ground for an extended period was felt to be a HUGE loss.

Agreed.

We move on after a mistake.

Didn't he start a season in the 90s as a joint manager with us?

Experience? We'd have a combined coaching team age of 189! [emoji23]

Oh dear.

Who was it that said the club was going backwards.

Remember his attempt at managing after Bassett cleared off.

Still got 'Lewington Out!' chants ringing in my ears,

Ray Houghton you are thinking of, and he didnt play during 97/98. He was sold at the beginning of that season, great player none the less...

Because of rhotacism. How does that make it acceptable to take the piss?

Erm no, no its not.

Ray Lewington is who i am thinking of in the 98 season who missed much of it. He was our 1st team coach and him not being around was a significant problem.

Yep, he got septacaemia after a routine operation, was out of action for months and Brian Sparrow took over. Agree with you that if that hadn't of happened we would have stayed up.

Lewington and Lee as coaches is a strong combination and provides me with a good deal of reassurance that Hodgson with have good support around him

Was part of the much vaunted Triumvirate wasn't he?
