Crystal Palace sacked manager Peter Taylor

The struggling Championship team Crystal Palace have axed manager Peter Taylor, Neil Warnock most likely to get the job.

Crystal Palace sacked manager Peter Taylor The Eagle's chairman Simon Jordan seems to be fed up with the poor performance of the team under the command of Peter Taylor and an official statement on the club's website read today: "Crystal Palace Football Club announce that Peter Taylor's contract has been terminated with immediate effect."

 Taking only 10 points from the last 10 games, it was only a matter of time before Crystal Palace gave Taylor the boot. And failure to beat Hull City was the last straw and Peter Taylor found himself unemployed. He took over the club in June last year, after the departure of Iain Dowie and back then the hopes were high for a Premier League spot in 2007. Not only Crystal Palace failed to achieve, but the team is currently sitting 5 spots from the very bottom of the Championship table.  Rumors are already emerging of who will take Taylor's job and the bookmakers have even posted odds on the next Crystal Palace manager. So far the most likely suspect is Neil Warnock, other names mentioned include Paul Jewell and Glenn Hoddle.
