Following the shock departure of Tony Pulis, Crystal Palace announced the arrival of ex-player Joe McHale.
Joe McHale, an ex-Palace midfielder took to the press today to answer questions from the London Gazette; McHale made only 47 appearances for palace between 1999 and 2001 and was touted as a future England captain before his career hit a rapid downward spiral and was seen by the media as another hopeful who felt the pressure of the glory-hungry nation.
Press: You sit here today with no major managerial experience and only a few clubs on your resume as a coach, What makes you think you are the right man to coach this club?.
McHale: I am hungry to succeed. I know what a want to do and I know how to get there, I can make Palace a success and know that I have great faith in the ideas that both myself and Steve Parish share.
Press: Even so, many fans aren't too pleased with your arrival, what do you have to say to them?.
McHale: I am not going to say anything, just ask them to believe in what we are trying to achieve, and to watch as I take this club up to new heights. If that's all i'm off to meet the lads and begin our preparations for the new season.
McHale clearly determined to be a success, If that will happen is yet to be seen. All we do know however is McHale was a fan favourite during his short playing time for the club and it's clear he loves the club and it's fans.
