Crystal Palace in a tough spot, gets new coach

Crystal Palace had a bad December in the Barclays Premier League, and have fallen into the relegation zone, the bottom three teams on points.  So they fired their coach, Neil Warnock, (who was a fill-in because the coach that gave them success last year, Tony Pulis, didn't agree with management and quit at the beginning of the season).   So they have apparently (not sure if it's all done, but it's getting there) signed the current Newcastle United coach, Alan Pardew, who wanted to coach CPFC, as he was a star player there in past years.  And apparently the Newcastle United fans don't mind seeing him leave, either. 

Since I always have a soft spot for struggling underdog teams, I hope Pardew can turn around the Palace fortunes and keep them in the "Premiership", as the Brit commentators occasionally call it.
