Crystal Palace legend: Finding the right experienced manager is proving a tough task

After Tony Pulis' surprise departure various names have been linked with the vacant manager position at Selhurst Park and Crystal Palace legend Geoff Thomas says it is obvious Steve Parish is looking for someone with experience.

Neil Warnock is favourite for the job, with the likes of Glenn Hoddle and Mick McCarthy other names mentioned in the past few days.

"It sounds like Steve's going for experience but to find somebody with experience, who is not in a job, is difficult to get," Thomas said. "Because if there isn't one available is it a case of going elsewhere."

Keith Millen has taken the helm again as caretaker manager after successfully restoring team spirit the last time he was in the caretaker role and Thomas has nothing but praise for Millen whilst appreciating it is a tough task for him.

"I think Keith did exceptionally well last year," Thomas said. "Keith is a great guy to have at the helm while this is going on but I think Saturday proved the situation Palace are in and I would question would that have been the case with Tony Pulis at the helm."

For the time being Millen will take charge of his side against Newcastle on the weekend but the former Palace goalkeeper has asked for his club to sort the situation out sooner rather than later.

"What's happening with Palace at the moment is not good and we've just got to get some decent results and the next guy who comes in will see if he keeps Keith in his plans."

Former Eagles skipper Thomas has a self-proclaimed love affair with Crystal Palace and despite not being in a position to take the manager's role he admits he could never turn down an offer to return in some way.

"I've always reserved a passion for Palace and there's still a passion there for football. I've always thought about getting back into football and I'd never say no to Palace that's for sure but we can all dream."
