Garry Monk, Tony Pulis and Alan Pardew: Is mid-table an achievement?

All three managers will have similar ideas of success this season.

If there is a fine line between success and failure; a manager in search of a stress-free life might be looking for the elusive area between underachievement and overachievement. Underperform and his position comes into question. Exceed expectations and he is challenged to do even better. Even repeating his earlier exploits can bring suggestions his side have not progressed.

Such are the problems that confront Garry Monk, Tony Pulis and Alan Pardew this season. They have set the bar high. In their...

Crystal Palace looking to consolidate under Alan Pardew

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol says Yohan Cabaye had to leave PSG to get his career back on track.

Alan Pardew took Crystal Palace to 10th last season and will be hoping to consolidate their position in the league this time around. Here's a look at what to expect from Pardew's men as we approach the new campaign ...

Preview

Staying up again is the main aim but the squad is good enough for another top 10 finish and maybe even a cup run.

Biggest concern

The Eagles have a great squad and are adding to it wisely, coupled with a bullishness that means they were able to beat the likes of Manchester...

Southampton defender Jose Fonte targeted by Crystal Palace - sources

Jose Fonte signed for Southampton from Crystal Palace in 2010.

Crystal Palace are considering a move for Southampton defender Jose Fonte as they look to bring in a centre-back this summer, sources have told ESPN FC.

Palace boss Alan Pardew has made a new central defender one of his top priorities this summer as he looks to find a partner for Scott Dann.

Palace have been frustrated in their attempts to sign Swansea and Wales captain Ashley Williams with Swansea pricing them out of a move for the defender as they are determined to keep the highly rated stopper...

Crystal Palace loyalty scheme needs reassessment

The ESPN FC crew share their thoughts on Carlos Tevez's move back to Boca Juniors and question Alan Pardew's new training ground attire.

Loyalty is a word that's banded around a lot in football. Pundits use it to demise the lack of one-player clubs; fans use it to prove how strong their support is. Even Fabian Delph used the word when he promised he was staying at Aston Villa only to go and do the exact opposite of loyalty as he signed for Manchester City a few days later. But being "loyal" is a badge most football fans wear with pride no matter what's happening at his team.

But sometimes that loyalty gets taken for granted and...

Real Madrid crush Manchester City, Liverpool held in preseason friendlies

Real Madrid continued their preseason dominance with a comfortable 4-1 victory over Manchester City.
Real Madrid cruised to a 4-1 win over Manchester City in Melbourne on Friday night.

An inexperienced centre-back pairing for Manchester City played right into the hands of Real Madrid, who ran out 4-1 winners at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in front of 99,382 fans.

A fluid, interchanging front four of Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Isco and Cristiano Ronaldo ran riot against youngsters Jason Denayer and Cameron Humphreys in the first half, and goals by Benzema and Ronaldo within four minutes of each other gave the Spanish side a comfortable lead inside the first 25 minutes.

Real Madrid...
