Crystal Palace should be in rush

Their caretaker manager has expressed his interest in taking the job on a full-time basis. Now, the locker room too have spoken: Julián Speroni, the veteran netminder and a big voice into the squad, has revealed that the Crystal Palace team want Keith Millen to stay at Selhurst Park. As Speroni told, Millen has Premier League experience and he knows the club as he worked under both Ian Holloway and Pulis. The former Bristol City manager gained locker room’s trust and surely knows the players. Millen, an assistant coach to former manager Tony Pulis, took the job in a temporary basis since former Stoke manager abruptly left the club just a couple of days before the start of this Premier League campaign. Millen believes he can still land the job although, since Pulis’ departure, a lot of names was linked to Selhurst Park. The early favorites, Malky Mackay and Tim Sherwood, for many reasons, are no more in the race. Former West Brom boss Steve Clarke pointed out that he had any contact with the Palace while both Ally McCoist and Neil Lennon are a shot in the dark right now. Palace co-chairman Steve Parish recently told he is “in no rush” to land a new manager. He should be. Against West Ham, Palace produced their second consecutive poor performance, collecting a second straight defeat in so many Premier League games having also lost their opener 2-1 at Arsenal. Club needs to bring on two or three players before the transfer window closes. Should Parish be convinced that Millen is the man, he would secure him the permanent manager’s job. Otherwise, if Millen does not get the job, Parish should quickly secure a new permanent manager, possibly before next Monday 11pm, in the way to change the roster according to new manager's philosophy. Regardless of who the next manager will be, Parish has to let him time to take the lead on transfer targets. The controversial resignation of resignation of Iain Moody, the club’s technical director, doesn’t help. Moody knew the scouting department and he was experienced at recruiting players. So the next manager will have to do his job. The fact Parish doesn’t panic after the turmoil is a good thing. But the time is now running out.
