​Palace chairman determined to consult for next managerial appointment

Crystal Palace have sacked boss Alan Pardew and chairman Steve Parish has stressed there is no-one at present lined up for the vacancy and soundings will be taken from within the game over a suitable replacement.

Parish told BBC Sport: "I'm not going to blame other people [American co-owners].

Relegation is so costly and I feel with no blame attached we got ourselves in a rut and need a change. We hope a change will change things.

"Even the most one-eyed opposition supporter would accept we've been on the end of some appalling [referee] errors over the last few games.

"We all bought into the decision to play a more expansive style of football. We all believed in it. That hasn't worked. It's no-one's fault. The players have been running their socks off for Alan, the spirit is good.

"But now we're going to wind the dial back the other way. We're talking to a number of people to make sure we get this right, nothing has been agreed."
