Listening to 606 last night, I was quite amused to hear Palace fans arguing with each other about whether Ian Holloway should get the push. My view of Holloway is that he is the kind of loud mouth lacking judgment who is well suited to the Nigels and Nigellas.
However, it appears that Ian Holloway is under real pressure and that Alan Pardew is the favourite to replace him. Indeed, no less an authority than Richard Cawley of the South London Press has tweeted that there is some substance to a story that has appeared in a number of papers: Pardew
Pardew is under real pressure at Newcastle, where his team were booed off after drawing 0-0 with West Ham yesterday. There would be a nice symmetry in Pardew steering Palace to relegation. If we managed to stay up, and he kept his job, we could welcome him to The Valley next season, although it is an interesting speculation who would be Charlton manager by then. Doubtless some of the rumours circulating at The Valley yesterday were no doubt exaggerated in the telling.
