    Pardew saves his job, says Palace owners “don’t know a lot about football”

    While some may advise that keeping a low profile would best suit Alan Pardew right now, Crystal Palace’s embattled manager is of a totally different mindset. Following Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Southampton, in which Pardew’s side saved his job (for the time being), the 55-year-old Eagles boss and former player chose the first bright moment, Palace’s first Premier League win since Sept. 24, to hit out at the club’s new American owners with a scathing assessment of the footballing prowess, or perhaps lack thereof — quotes from the Guardian: “The chairman got a bit edgy this week, as you’d expect.

The reports state that Jurgen Klopp advised Gerrard to take his first managerial job in a low pressure, low publicity role rather than jump right into a first-team role either alongside Klopp or at another club.

Gerrard’s position could also allow him to take a similar role with the FA in England’s youth setup
