Why does Dario Gradi hate Palace

Ok, so today it was Jordan who had a dig a Dario Gradi, but it seems to be agreed that he doesn't think much of us either? I know he managed us briefly in 1981 (30 games), but why exactly does Dario dislike us?

Ignore him he's a nobody. Sits in a safe-seat lapping up the plaudits for 'discovering' and 'bringing through talent' on no greater a scale than any other club of similar size and means.

Makes me laugh or vomit (depending how I'm feeling) ... Crewe this and Crewe that. Very much similar to the fabled West 'am Academy myth.

Ignore it

Jordan probably hates him for not letting us buy Dean Ashton in the January window of Dowie's relegation season. Told him to go to a better club........................Narwich - currently 5 points adrift at the bottom of the Championship

I'd like to know the answer to this too, Gradi was at Palace many years ago wasn't he a trainer or assistant or something? Didn't he manage the team for a brief time inbetween managers? Did he originally come from sutton and isn't it a badly kept secret that he's gay? What does La Bomb know that he's not letting on?

Come on so many questions......

I doubt he would have advised Ashton against moving here because of some long standing hatred of the club.
More likely he didn't like the way the club was run at the time, but whether he does actually know enough about our club to make such a judgment is for him to know.

'Dario Gradi' managed our beloved team in the early 80s, succeeding 'Malcolm Allison'.He was succeeded himself by 'Steve Kember'.

Uncle Ron brought him from Wimbledon, as manager [not one of our better ones], he lost his 1st 7 matches in charge. I don't think it's Palace he hates, he did sell us Geoff Thomas and Pembo. I would guess it has more to do with our leaders attitude.

I don't know what he thinks of Palace but can only say he is a very nice man. Probably one of the nicest to visit witn an opposing team. Whenever he has visited Selhurst Park he has always taken time to talk to people before the match, in fact he used to come and sit in the dugout soon after he arrived to read the programme and have a chat with early arrival fans.

It's not the route of Jordans / Gradi's mutual hatred but it is well known he advised Deano to chose Norwich over us.

Gradi parted company with Palace because he's an [edit] and he's stayed at Crewe because no other club would touch him.

The truth is though that AJ and Ashton would of been a dream partnership.

A big fish in the tiny pond that is Crewe. Had a lucrative contract that gave him a percentage of the transfer fee of every player he sold that had come through their junior ranks; it's made him very rich.

Out of his depth as Palace manager, we breathed a sigh of relief when he left.

The shite he bought when at Palace. I would say he is our second worst manager in my lifetime, after that Brighton ••••.
