Patron: Steve Coppell Sessional Digital Teacher: Daniel Mullings

Crystal Palace FC History, Players, Team, Information [cached]

Noades appointed another former top flight player, Steve Coppell as manager in 1984.

Coppell and Noades began rebuilding the team and the club, and over the next seven years, Palace enjoyed mounting success and a growing reputation for nurturing intelligent, skilful young players such as Ian Wright, Mark Bright, Chris Coleman, Andy Gray, Nigel Martyn, Gareth Southgate and John Salako.
However, the club's fortunes took yet another turn for the worse, and by the end of the season, Venables had gone (to be replaced by Coppell - again) and the club was in administration.
Jordan replaced Coppell with former manager Alan Smith, and supporters looked forward to a new era.
The most famous manager of Crystal Palace Football Club is Steve Coppell (born at Birkenhead in 1955). He had proved himself as a successful player with Manchester United before being forced into retirement by a knee injury at the age of 28. In May 1984, aged 29, he was appointed manager of Crystal Palace who were at the time a struggling side in the old Second Division.
But key striker Ian Wright was sold to Arsenal for £2.5million during the 1991-92 season, and Steve Coppell quit as Palace manager in May 1993 after their relegation from the inaugural Premier League.
By the time Steve Coppell began his second spell as manager in August 1995, Crystal Palace had been promoted back to the Premiership and gone back down to Division One again. But he was unsuccessful in mounting a promotion challenge and quit the club in February 1996, handing over the reins to ex Sheffield United manager David Bassett - who helped the club reach the playoffs, although they lost in the final to Leicester City.
For 54 days in the autumn of 1996, Coppell was manager of Manchester City. The Maine Road club had just been relegated to Division One and Coppell seemed to be looking forward to mounting a promotion challenge for a Premiership place. But after 2 months at the helm he handed in his resignation, claiming he couldn't cope with the pressures of the job.
In March 1997, Steve Coppell became manager of Crystal Palace for the third time in 13 years. The club was well on course for the Division One playoffs and they beat Sheffield United in the final to secure a Premiership place. But the 1997-98 season saw Palace relegated from the Premiership with just two home Premiership wins, and Coppell was again 'moved upstairs'.
Coppell was appointed Crystal Palace manager for the fourth time in February 1999, by which time the club was struggling in Division One with massive debts following Mark Goldberg's withdrawal of investment in the club.
In June 2001, Steve Coppell returned to management with Division Two Brentford, now controlled by former Crystal Palace chairman Ron Noades.
Coppell handed in his resignation within days of Brentford's failure to win promotion.
Steve Coppell was named as the new manager of Brighton and Hove Albion in October 2002, faced with the challenge of rejuvenating a club which was bottom of Division One with 10 defeats from 12 league games. He gradually improved the club's league form and although the great escape eventually proved beyond them, he at least kept their survival hopes alive until the very last game of the season - when their relegation to Division Two was confirmed.
Since October 2003, Steve Coppell has been manager of Reading who are currently well placed for a playoff place in the new Coca Cola League Championship.

Detroit City FC to welcome United legend Steve Coppell for FC United match
Detroit City FC (DCFC) has announced that Manchester United legend Steve Coppell will join the commentating team for DCFC's international friendly against FC United of Manchester on Saturday 28 May in Detroit.
Coppell, who made 395 appearances for Manchester United from 1975 to 1983, will be in the broadcast booth for the match, which will be live streamed at and for soon-to-be announced events around the match.
"Our co-owners and fans love to see the involvement of former red heroes such as Steve Coppell. For those, like me, who saw Steve play there will be great memories of one of the best wingers ever, a player who graced the famous No.7 United shirt for many years until his playing career was sadly cut short by injury. It's a measure of the man that Steve has already taken the time to come along to an FC United home game to find out for himself all about our fans-owned club and he'll always be a welcome visitor. In case there's any doubt, United fans have long forgiven 'agent Steve' his brief time as Manchester City's manager."
"Communities are fighting back and taking ownership and responsibility for their local teams," Steve Coppell said.
Not only is Mr. Coppell a legendary player and manager in English football who will help raise the profile of this match, but he truly appreciates the importance of community and supporters to football. That appreciation binds these two clubs from both sides of the Atlantic."
One of England's most gifted midfielders during his time, Coppell spent eight seasons with Manchester United and recorded 70 goals. Coppell also represented the England national team from 1977 until 1983. He featured in 42 international matches and played in the 1982 World Cup before retiring due to injury.
Following his extensive playing career, Coppell went on to manage several top-flight English clubs, including Crystal Palace and Reading FC. His managerial career spanned from 1984-2010. Most recently, he was director of football at Portsmouth FC.
On 2 April 2016, Coppell was announced as FC United of Manchester's newest co-owner.

Patron Steve Coppell | Study Centre at Crystal Palace Football Club [cached]

Steve Coppell was born in Liverpool in 1955 he attended Quarry Bank Grammar School in South Liverpool. He joined the Lower League Merseyside club Tranmere Rovers in 1974 so that he could study for a degree in Economic History at the University of Liverpool, where he also coached the football team. In the 1970 & 80s Steve Coppell was considered to be one of the most talented wide players in the 1970s and early 80s until his playing career was cruelly cut short by a knee injury during England duties.

Steve began his professional football career with Tranmere Rovers then very quickly attracted the attention of Manchester United, joining them in February 1975. Whilst rampaging up and down the right wing for United he still managed to complete his degree, truly an inspiration. With Steve's performances United were able to move from the second tier to the First Division [as it was at that time!]. Whilst at Old Trafford he scored 54 goals, played in 3 FA Cup Finals, 1976, 77 & 79-winner against his hometown Liverpool in the 77 final and during his time at United he made 42 appearances for the full England team.
After his knee injury terminated his playing career, Steve moved into management with Crystal Palace [1984-1993], one of the youngest managers in the Football League, guiding the Eagles back to the top flight in 1989 after we had dropped into the second division under Alan Mullery.
Steve also led the Eagles to their only FA Cup final appearance against the club for whom he had represented three times in the same final. Steve actually managed Crystal Palace on a further three occasions 1995-96, 1997-98, 1999-2000 and we were delighted when he accepted the role of the Patron of the Study Centre at CPFC early in January 2012.
Steve has gone on to manage a few other clubs, Manchester City; Brentford; Brighton & Hove Albion; Reading and Bristol City. Steve guided the Royals to many record breaking landmarks-33 unbeaten Leagues games, English League record for number of points scored 106! Steve was awarded League Managers Association's manager of the year for both the Championship and the entire league, whilst also topping the Tissot League for Managers' Performance. Steve is now the Director of Football at Crawley Town.
