Bad news today for Crystal Palace as the club was placed into administration and subsequently docked ten points in the Championship table. Obviously it’s bad to be so far in debt that the FA would sanction the club, but to drop ten points in the Championship at this point is the difference between ninth place and just two points shy of a playoff position to twentieth place and a fight not for promotion but to avoid relegation. Chairman Simon Jordan has reportedly been seeking new investment for the club as holds debts of £30m, a search that will surely now be accelerated. The sale of teenager Victor Moses is also now probable as he has been the source of overtures from the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City this month. And at this point there is no word on the effect this might have on the relationship with Crystal Palace Baltimore, the club’s American brother just recently promoted to the new NASL conference of the American second division.
