After Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner parted ways with the club on Monday, there are surely a host of clubs looking at taking on the German who served as Jurgen Klopp’s assistant in his Dortmund days.
The 47-year-old found success in the Championship playing exhilarating, fast-paced football, but a lack of quality on the pitch this season has seen the Terriers slump to the foot of the table with just 11 points taken from 22 games – it will surely require divine intervention for the Yorkshire outfit to evade the drop now and whoever comes in will have a mammoth task on their hands.
Meanwhile, one team who it isn’t too late for is Palace – the Croydon outfit currently find themselves 14th in the standings but, particularly after a disappointing loss at home to Watford last weekend, will be hoping they can improve on their first half of the season.
Despite pulling off a miraculous escape last year after Frank de Boer’s failed attempt at changing the Eagles’ DNA, Roy Hodgson’s football is starting to become a bit stale and Steve Parish is often quick to hit the eject button – de Boer had just four Prem games before being given the boot.
It’s pretty safe to say that Wagner hasn’t been given a fair shot at the Prem given the comparative quality of his team – could he help a Palace side who are treading water and have better attacking options than he had at the John Smith’s Stadium climb up the table?
Here at Football Fanciest we think that the eccentric manager could get the Eagles scoring, with his direct approach getting the best out of the likes of Christian Benteke and Wilfried Zaha – but what do you think, Palace fans?
