Keith Millen believes it is vital that the 'right person' is appointed by Crystal Palace after being left 'proud' of the players' efforts in the 2-0 defeat by Arsenal.

Keith Millen: Caretaker manager proud of Crystal Palace

Ian Holloway's departure in midweek left Millen in caretaker charge for Saturday's game against Premier League leaders Arsenal at Selhurst Park.

Millen made half-a-dozen changes to the team which had lost 4-1 at home to Fulham on Monday night and was rewarded with a spirited performance.

A penalty from Mikel Arteta, who was later sent off, and a late header from Olivier Giroud secured Arsenal the points, but Millen was pleased with Palace's effort.

"The last couple of days have been difficult obviously with Ian leaving, but from a work point of view it's been fantastic," he said.

"It was about playing for the fans and I think the fans will have appreciated the effort and commitment.

"Their response to going one down against a world-class side made me proud, and I am just disappointed they didn't get something from the game that I felt they deserved today."

Former Stoke boss Tony Pulis has been linked with the Selhurst Park vacancy, with Palace now having lost eight of their nine league games this season.

Millen added: "It is important that we get someone in really as quickly as possible, but it has to be the right person.

"I am sure the chairman won't rush in to that."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
