Hard call. Seems to have potential but he (and his team) were utterly clueless at Selhurst. I put him in a box with Moyes and Ranieri as damaged goods in need of rehabilitation. Any of them could be very good but each of them could be relegation fodder.

Their performances against Sunderland and us were quite bizarre. They'd done all the hard work clawing their way back into contention with a highly unlikely run of form, then failed to turn up at all in either game.

Worrying when a team shows absolutely no fight in such important games.

Really, Hugh?
I think he would be very good for us. He's young and has succeeded everywhere, though I guess ultimately at Hull, he failed. He would have a lot more to work with at Palace (and I think he would probably be pleased to work with the backroom staff we already have).

They were worse than Pardew from conceding set-pieces, diabolical zonal marking. They conceded 3 goals or more on 9 occasions.... including the that last game humiliation.

Sounds like a backwards step to me. And regression back to the sort of frustrating football Pardew was producing.

Tactically he has more in common with Allardyce than with Pardew, solide defence and quick counter attacks.
Remember we did get well humped by Sunderland and Man City under Allardyce. And I think we were lucky that Manyoo had their mionds on other things, as well.

When Silva arrived Hull sold two of their best players, which made a shit squad even worse. They then brought in a load of players who had never played in the Premier League, mostly on loan. There was a pissed off fanbase who hated their owners. They were bottom of the league.

I think we could do a lot worse. There's a reason Hull fans sung his name for near enough the whole game at Selhurst. I'm not saying he'd be my first choice, I'd rather Ranieri or Mancini, but he did a better job than anyone expected when he arrived at Hull so I'd be happy if we got him in.

Bit harsh

Hull were relegation fodder anyway, but he made them competitive 27 points from 21 games before the dead rubber spurs game

Edit : Some wins were Cup so 21 points from 18 PL games

Given that Hull was his first PL experience I thought he did a really good job there.

From the highlights I saw against Sunderland, they battered them

TBH when he arrived there the club was in awful shape and so although he didn't avoid relegation, it's tough not to be impressed by how close he got to saving them. The capitulation in the last 3 games was a surprise after getting into the driving seat but injuries didn't help.

Interesting mix of unqualified (including mine) opinions.. I wonder what the consensus would be if his surname was Pritchard or Smith.

Conceded 3 or more goals on 9 occasions... and last three games

0-2
4-0
1-7

Sounds to me like he never got to grips with the job at all. They won a few though - but is that enough?

He has my backing if he comes, wont lie that I have some concerns over things like Hulls away form but we probably have the better players to improve that already.

As for activating his release clause, he was going to do that regardless. Wouldnt read too much into it.

Personally not over keen on him but think he did a good job at Hull considering the very limited squad he had.

Biggest concern would be when the team were really up against it he then lost to Sunderland and then meekly to us in consecutive games. Okay, we lost to Sunderland as well at home but thankfully that was the wake up call everyone needed and we had the time to change it around.

Anyway if it is him, I am sure we will all give him our total support - for a few games at least for some.

Pretty much got the same amount amount of points as BFS with a much much worse side. What's not to like?

Getting to the last three games of the season with a chance of staying up was an achievement with those players. Are there any you would want to see starting in Palace's first team? They sold their best player in January!
