Managers coming and going ….Holloway leaves Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace are searching for a new manager after parting company with Ian Holloway just eight matches into the Premier League campaign.
Holloway, who had been in charge at Selhurst Park since November 2012 when he replaced Dougie Freedman, guided Palace to promotion via the Championship play-offs last term.
However, Palace have lost seven of their first eight Premier League matches of the season with their only victory coming against rock-bottom and winless Sunderland. They were thrashed 4-1 by Fulham at Selhurst Park on Monday despite taking an early lead.
Holloway, who leaves Selhurst Park by mutual consent, said of his departure: “It is a privilege to have worked at Palace. With me out the way, the new man will have a chance to start again.

“I’m not saying my new signings aren’t good enough. But they need to buy into this football club the same way my other lads did.
“I’ve lost the spirit of that group. I didn’t value enough the spirit of the group that helped us get to the Premier League.”
Before taking charge at Palace, Holloway enjoyed spells as manager of Bristol Rovers, QPR, Plymouth Argyle, Leicester City and Blackpool.
He is the second Premier League manager to lose his job this season following Paolo di Canio’s departure from Sunderland.
