I doubt if Dougie was ever a contender for the Hearts job.

He and his family are settled here, and he had bad experiences in management at Bolton and Forest.

He’s certainly not in the bookies’ top ten for the job.

Jack Ross is 2/1 and Gary Holt is 4/1.

Higher odds are being offered for Scot Gemill, David Moyes, Stuart McCall, Michael O’Neill, Paul Hartley, Steve Robinson and Steven Pressley.

There’s no reason to believe that Dougie is not doing a good job at Palace, inevitably with tight budgetary constraints.

Also he seems to be relatively secure - and he would forfeit that if he returned to the ups and downs of day-to-day management.

It would be interesting to know more about his job description and how he has been contributing.

Sorry I do not go along with this view. The Max and Camarasa nonsense of being left on the bench or at home screams of a disconnect with the managers ethos. Why have we signed these creative players, they do not fit the mould of Roys idea of a midfielder. Why were they signed?

Bournemouth have a billionaire owner and broke ffp rules to get promoted and still splash the cash regularly.
Don't be fooled by the "plucky little Bournemouth " story.

very good point, but they do seem to unearth reasonably priced gems from relative obscurity, and they, Watford and other clubs seem to have a more strategic approach than us - we do fire fighting and finding players the manager doesn't rate: Rakip, Jach, Meyer, Camarasa … Roy seems to be more to blame for Sorloth, but there is definitely some dislocation here, and I'll have Roy over Doogie any day.

I understand your sentiments and of course he was vilified for the action he took.

I believe the point I was making was that he didn't desert a 'sinking ship' and departed for a club much lower in the table so I suppose he took a bit of a gamble.

We of course were promoted the season he left so perhaps some might opine that having left us in 4th place, this provided the platform for our promotion.

And not for the first time, I remember in the late nineties Dave Bassett leaving us in the lurch mid season, Steve Coppel returned and got us promotion, (that same season I think). Bassett went off to I think Forest, and got relagated

And let’s not forget Pulis’ impeccable timing.

We certainly don't have a good record with managers do we.so many leave under a cloud, even the ones who have given us some success.
it makes you think who has been a real success at Palace, I can only think of Bert Head, Coppell, and so far Hodgson.
