Crystal Palace's life in the Premier League
Its like a tramp winning the lottery and spending next few years living in a damp caravan

Difficult to say who was the worst - by definition, a lot of our managers have been unsuccessful over the years. So, not including managers from the Withdean and Gillingham years on the grounds that they had their hands tied behind their backs anyway, my four nominations would be:
Clough, for the reasons stated by the OP;
Sami - play-offs to near relegation in 6 months;
Melia - an absolute clown; never mind the cup final, that squad was good enough to stay up, but Melia took them straight down;
George Curtis; just awful!
I want to say Adams but he got us promoted, despite how piss poor the second run was. And he was at least compensated that Russell Slade kept the team up.
Sami is clearly not cut out for managing but he at least secured some wins, and was replaced by Hughton not long after he made any longer lasting damage.
I'd have to say Clough, because he thought he was too good for Brighton and treated the club like dirt before he went off to Leeds. On top of that 0 wins and some crushing defeats
For Sussex will be Sussex,
And Sussex won't be druv!
Think it's unfair on Hinsh, practically no notice, a squad that was in Division 3 18 months earlier against some massive clubs with no budget and resources.
Part of the fantastic REMF Winning team of 2013.
"on the stroke of half-time it took a world class save from Greening to deny McGoldrick."
The only thing you can say about Sami was the Little Sam DEBACLE leaving him with NO No.2 but looking at how Lee is doing up the road maybe it would have been WORSE with him HERE
