Palace chairman 'hated' Dowie

Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan was no fan of Iain Dowie it seems despite the current Coventry City manager taking the Eagles into the top-flight in his first season in charge.

Speaking to FHM magazine, Jordan said of the play-off win over West Ham which was the highlight of his time as chairman: 'I don't want to say it, because I hated our manager at the time.

'I didn't like him at all. His manners, outlook and attitude stank.

'And I told him so, after we won the play-off final.

'So what he got promotion? That's what I paid him to do.'

Obviously not the best of friends then! From the outside Dowie's attitude seems spot on and City's players are certainly responding to him.

A complete knobcheese seems to be a part of what it takes to be a chairman at a small club. Maybe he is a failed manager on the playstation.
