Garry Monk, Tony Pulis and Alan Pardew: Is mid-table an achievement?

All three managers will have similar ideas of success this season.

If there is a fine line between success and failure, a manager in search of a stress-free life might be looking for the elusive area between underachievement and overachievement. Underperform and his position comes into question. Exceed expectations and he is challenged to do even better. Even repeating his earlier exploits can bring suggestions his side have not progressed.

Such are the problems that confront Garry Monk, Tony Pulis and Alan Pardew this season. They have set the bar high. In their...

Crystal Palace looking to consolidate under Alan Pardew

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol says Yohan Cabaye had to leave PSG to get his career back on track.

Alan Pardew took Crystal Palace to 10th place last season and will be hoping to consolidate their position in the league this time around. Here's a look at what to expect from Pardew's men as we approach the new campaign ...


Staying up again is the main aim, but the squad is good enough for another top-10 finish and maybe even a cup run.

Biggest concern

The Eagles have a great squad and are adding to it wisely, coupled with a bullishness that means they were able to beat the likes of Manchester...

Crystal Palace loyalty scheme needs reassessment

The ESPN FC crew share their thoughts on Carlos Tevez's move back to Boca Juniors and question Alan Pardew's new training ground attire.

Loyalty is a word that's banded around a lot in football. Pundits use it to demise the lack of one-player clubs; fans use it to prove how strong their support is. Even Fabian Delph used the word when he promised he was staying at Aston Villa only to go and do the exact opposite of loyalty as he signed for Manchester City a few days later. But being "loyal" is a badge most football fans wear with pride no matter what's happening at his team.

But sometimes that loyalty gets taken for granted and...

Can Bamford replicate Championship success at Crystal Palace?

Patrick Bamford isn't the striker most Crystal Palace fans envisioned signing, but he shows promise.

No Crystal Palace fan is going to admit that Patrick Bamford was their first choice as the club's new striker, but like getting into your second choice of university and finding it's actually a better fit, the England U-21 forward could turn out to be a very smart acquisition indeed.

Bamford has arrived from Chelsea in the manner in which all Blues squad players find new clubs: on loan. Palace is, in fact, the fourth different club he's played for on loan club at the age of 21. He's enjoyed fruitful...

Dwight Gayle's time at Crystal Palace may be coming to a close

The ESPN FC crew share their thoughts on Carlos Tevez's move back to Boca Juniors and question Alan Pardew's new training ground attire.

Sometimes things that seem like a perfect match just don't work out: Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, Harrison Ford and another Indiana Jones movie, the band Muse. Now it seems like Crystal Palace and Dwight Gayle can be added to that list.

The Eagles striker has been linked with a move away from the club this summer and while no one at Selhurst Park wants him to go, it's starting to look like it might be the best thing for everyone if he moves on.

His case at Palace has ben a strange one. He arrived...

Scott Dann's renewal strongest sign yet Crystal Palace intend to push on

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Alexis Nunes speculate Yohan Cabaye's reasons for leaving PSG as the midfielder makes his return to the Premier League to join Crystal Palace.

The good news just keeps on coming for Crystal Palace fans. First there was the arrival of club-record-signing Yohan Cabaye and now the news that Player of the Year Scott Dann has signed a new contract at the club. Both of those announcements followed the news that Brede Hangeland had extended his deal at Selhurst Park.

Arguably, Dann is a more important signing than Cabaye, although were you to actually use that argument down the pub you'll probably find plenty of people ready to disagree. But...
