We’re only two games into the 2013/14 Premier League season, but there is already talks of managerial changes, with Crystal Palace looking to remove Ian Holloway as manager and replace with him Newcastle United’s Alan Pardew according to the Mirror.
Somewhat ridiculously Ian Holloway is already coming under pressure in south London, with Palace having lost their opening two games of the season to Tottenham Hotspur last weekend and Stoke City yesterday.
Newcastle United aren’t exactly doing much better and while the Magpies might have picked up a solitary point at St James’ Park against West Ham yesterday, Pardew’s men are still yet to score in this campaign.
However, according to rumours that hasn’t deterred chairman Steve Parish from taking a liking to former Palace player Pardew and monitoring his situation at Newcastle closely.
The pressure has already started to show for Ian Holloway, as he’s struggled to bring in players this summer, much like Pardew, and he was moaning about refereeing decisions in their opener against Spurs.
Relations are said to be strained behind the scenes, and if Pardew were to be given the boot at Newcastle, then it is thought that Pards wouldn’t be out of a job for long and that Crystal Palace would immediately let go of Holloway and swoop for Alan’s services.
The question is, how long will it take for the Premier League managerial merry-go-round to get going?
