Alan Curbishley: Not ruling himself out of running for Crystal Palace job

Palace are seaching for a new manager following Ian Holloway's departure from Selhurst Park last week, with Keith Millen placed in caretaker charge for Saturday's defeat to Arsenal.

Former Stoke chief Tony Pulis is the bookies' favourite to succeed Holloway, but Curbishley, who has been out of work since leaving West Ham in 2008, has hinted he could be interested in the job despite his links with rivals Charlton.

"I think the chairman has come out and been saying perhaps Premier League experience is what they are looking for," Curbishley told Sky Sports News.

"Well, I have got 328 games in the Premier League.

"I did manage Charlton, though, who are arch-rivals of Palace. But at the moment it looks as if they are taking their time over who they are going to appoint, so we will have to wait and see how they go."

Asked if he had any contact with Palace, Curbishley said: "No, but I think they are going to take their time.

"I think that last week was a bit of a tough time for them, I don't think many people were thinking Ian Holloway would be leaving.

"I think they are doing the right thing - they have got to take their time - it's a big decision for them."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
