Pardew's a Palace coup.
Byline: STAN COLLYMORE
ALAN PARDEW is back at Crystal Palace and it is the perfect stage for him.
All this man needs is someone to believe in him and over the course of a few years he will deliver good sides.
He loves promoting young talent and always has a good backroom team around him.
He had to deal with difficult circumstances at Newcastle but I think he did a great job.
Palace will benefit from his experience, and he'll be able to stabilise them as a top-flight club.
I was a young lad at Crystal Palace when he was there and I think the fans will love the way he will unite everyone.
