Back in the Day: May 23rd - Iain Dowie Leaves Crystal Palace

Back in the Day

Tuesday 23rd May 2006

After 123 games in charge, Iain Dowie leaves Crystal Palace by mutual consent. After failing to achieve an immediate return to the Premier League, losing in the Play-Off Semi Final to Watford, Dowie and Simon Jordan decided to call it a day after when Dowie said he wanted to return to the North of England to spend more time with his family.

Just how far North would he go was the question on everyone’s lips. Jordan said that “he would not be very happy” if Dowie rocked up at a rival in the South on the grounds that he would be giving up a considerable compensation package.
