The best Tweets on Ian Holloway leaving Crystal Palace by mutual consent
- October 23, 2013
After losing 4-1 on Monday night to Fulham, leaving them second bottom of the Premier League with just one point, Crystal Palace have parted company with manager Ian Holloway.
Holloway, who lead Palace to promoted in the Championship playoff final, was allowed to bring in 14 players over the summer transfer window but things haven’t gelled all that well.
Palace have looked well out of their depth since returning to the top flight, and the Eagles looked destined to become the first club to yo-yo between the Premier League and Championship on five occasions.
But did anyone really expect much more for the South Londoners this season? Wasn’t relegation always going to happen?
Below are some of the best tweets on the news that Ian Holloway has left Crystal Palace by mutual consent.
If Holloway stayed at Palace, they were definitely going to be relegated. Who can blame the chairman for rolling the dice?
