Lennie Lawrence to return to the scene of his biggest triumph

Lennie Lawrence is being lined-up as the Assistant-Manager at Crystal Palace. Strange, but I feel very nostalgic hearing this. Perhaps it's because he'll be back at Selhurst Park? Maybe it's because Palace are planning a move to the athletic tracks at the "national stadium." It could be because he's being appointed so soon after Administration and Palace's near-death experience.

Whatever the reason, it's probably a good idea to get someone with experience in to help Dougie Freedman, although the 63 year old has not seen much success in recent years having been associated with a string of strugglers after leaving Boro' in 1994. Your average Charlton fan will never forgot what Lawrence achieved against the odds in getting us into the top flight for the first time in living memory for most, although his association with Palace will likely dim the memory.

Agent Lennie?

Shame he has to stoop so low to earn a few quid but he still lives in Beckenham I believe.

You have to laugh at the Athletics Stadium - my Brighton mates are in pieces..
