Twitter Reacts As Crystal Palace Get Rid Of Alan Pardew Just Before Christmas!

The king of cool moves or rather move, Alan Pardew, has been sacked by Crystal Palace with the club languishing in the lowly 17th place. Pardew, who has been a player and manager for the club failed to justify the faith and confidence shown in him by the who’s who at the club.

Pardew was appointed on a three-and-a-half-year deal in January 2015 but the 55-year-old has been dismissed after a run of one victory in 11 games. Palace have taken just 26 points from the 36 Premier League matches they have played in 2016 and are only one point above the relegation zone. This horrendous statistic pointed to the inevitable and Francesco Guidolin must be wondering why he didn’t get that many chances to prove before being given the release papers.

Anyhow, it is to be seen whether the Eagles can get back to the job and get someone who can amalgamate the plethora of talent in the squad and put the pieces together. Former England boss Sam Allardyce is the bookmakers’ favourite to take over. The ex-Sunderland, Newcastle and West Ham boss is among those expected to be considered. Big Sam won’t be messing around with his moves and will be rubbing his hands in delight over inheriting this Palace team.

Chairman Steve Parish was measured in his words and put the reason for the sack simply down to the philosophy of Pardew not working at the club.

“We all bought into the decision to play a more expansive style of football. We all believed in it. That hasn’t worked. It’s no-one’s fault. The players have been running their socks off for Alan, the spirit is good.

“But now we’re going to wind the dial back the other way.

“We’re talking to a number of people to make sure we get this right. Nothing has been agreed.’’

Alan Pardew, in a statement, said,

“Personally, I have a lot of good feelings for this football club and am sad that my time there has ended.

“I feel that I have a special bond with the club and hope that hasn’t been affected.’’

While the club and the ex-manager were cordial and understanding in their actions, twitter had a gala time. Let us check out a few tweets in this regard.
