The former Stoke boss is understood to be in advanced talks with the Palace board to succeed Ian Holloway, who stepped down last month after the club won only one of their first nine games of the season.

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.
