Tony Pulis has emerged as favourite for the Crystal Palace job after Ian Holloway's departure from the club, reports Sky Sports.
The Welshman has never been relegated and it looks as if Palace will need all of his Premier League experience to survive this season.
Holloway left on Monday night by mutual consent after a 4-1 defeat to Fulham at Selhurst Park, revealing he did not have the energy to keep the club up.
He also admitted that his summer signings disrupted the spirit that got them to where they were.
Now it seems former Stoke boss Pulis will be approached by the Palace board for the vacancy.
Recently, Pulis has been linked with every job vacancy, including the likes of Sunderland and Wales, who currently have a manager in Chris Coleman.
This can only mean that Pulis has gained a reputation of being a decent manager, even if his methods of getting results are not to everyone's taste.
Looking at Stoke now is what Palace want to be in years to come.
Pulis was a loyal servant at the Brittania Stadium, getting them to the Premier League and finding a way of keeping them up.
There was only a certain point he could take them to, hence the managerial change for The Potters, as they look to play more attractive football under Mark Hughes.
Results are exactly what Crystal Palace need at the moment.
Only above Sunderland, they need to find a way of picking up points and Pulis seems to have the knack for doing that.
There is a limited choice of managers who would fit into Crystal but Pulis is one of them, and you feel he has nothing to lose, with most fans expecting The Eagles to be relegated
