Brown has been dogged by various injuries in recent seasons and missed the last six games of the campaign due to a groin problem.

The majority of Boyd's 36 appearances this term have been made off the substitutes' bench.

Another striker, Colin Larkin, has also been told he no longer features in manager Neale Cooper's plans - he made only three first-team appearances this season - as have both defender Steve Haslam and forward Callum Hassam.

Midfield pair Paul Murray and Jordan Richards, goalkeeper Andy Rafferty and defender Evan Horwood will all remain at Victoria Park after the club exercised an extra year's option on their respective contracts.

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

For Foxes' Sake, Call The Pulis...

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
