At both Bristol & Manchester City, he was lied to. He doesn't stand for outside interference. And it's a mark of the man that he's left both jobs without pay out.

Of course he left without a payout, he walked out on them both

I'm sure he had good reason in both cases but you dont expect or get a payout when you walk out, do you

What happenned at Man City didn't exactly hinder him at Reading where he broke all records in getting them promoted. He genuinely loves Palace and i think its very important we have someone with that sort of affinity with the club. Are people suggesting we get somone who has that sort of affinity with Millwall instead?
Come home Sir Steve for a last harrah.

Not that fussed Dougie has gone, think he got lucky this season under instructions from the owners to play good football. Generally his tactics and style is boring as we saw last season.

Think a manager who's philosophy is to play good football would get a lot out of this group of players but don't think Sir Stevie is that person I'm afraid.

I disagree, Coppell sets up to play to the strength of the squad of players he has. He will work wonders with this squad, and also do what he does, uncover some pearls from the lower divisions.

He is an astute and very intelligent manager, so if he does have the fire in his belly for the job, then I cannot see anyone who is better suited than him.

I agree 100% with this, cpfc2010 need to spend some time looking through the candidates rather than resorting to knee jerk reactions, ssc would be good as a stopgap if lennie & co do join greedman but we need to look to the future now

Then he appeared as the club entered a long period in administration, oversaw survival twice, ensured the club remained

After leaving, he took over at Brighton, laying the foundations for their current success

Then he moved on to Reading, where he not only guided them to the top flight breaking records on the way, he kept them up.

Throughout this time, he kept up with modern football, evolved his style & went about his work with a quiet assured diligence

If a manager with the above record wants the Palace job, we should be making an effort to seal the deal

Great post. Can you recall the reasons he left each time and under what circumstances? My memory has gone blank aside from under the Jordan regime where neither really liked each other.

It takes a special person that can join 'his' club's arch rivals and still be welcomed back with such warmth even if with another club.

Jordan chucked him out as he believed (wrongly) that it was a new beginning and Steve was part of the old setup, on refection what a twatish thing to do.

Let's leave the past alone, and focus on the future.
Agreed
The best that could come out of this appointment would be the demise of another legend.
We have moved on

Big fan of Stevie, it goes without saying, watched virtually all of Palace's games under him, home and away, they were amongst the best and happiest of our lives.

Not sure if he actually wants to be a manager, as such, anymore, I get the feeling he enjoys taking a more advisory role, like the one he has at Crawley, to be fair, this is what Lennie Lawrence seems to be doing well for us now - so if Lennie goes, then having Stevie back as a 'DoF' would be good, but possibly too big a shadow over the prospective new manager to let him do the job properly.

I've heard tell that there is a very decent up and coming manager at Stevenage, Gary Smith, who is making great strides with them and I think this is the type of progressive manager we could do with, sure he may make mistakes along the way, but thats where were when Uncle Ron brought in Stevie in 1984, a young unproven manager, eager to make his mark in the game.
