Football: Paul Hart Appointed Crystal Palace Manager

1910_cpfc.jpg In a strange (and entirely unsexy) wife-swap, Crystal Palace have announced that Paul Hart — sacked as QPR boss a few weeks ago — will be taking over as manager of the club, following Neil Warnock's departure yesterday to the aforementioned Queens Park side. While that may leave fans nonplussed, they'll be cheered by the news that Hart's assistant manager is none other than Palace legend Dougie Freedman, the wee Scottish striker who single-handedly saved the Eagles from relegation to the third tier in 2001 with a quite magical individual goal. Can he do it again nine years later from the dugout?
