PHOTOS: The worst moments from Crystal Palace's 2014

The Crystal Palace Eagle

We compile images of Crystal Palace's worst moments of 2014.

Crystal Palace's 2014 has been a year of two halves. Under the guidance of Tony Pulis they enjoyed some of the most memorable performances they have put in in recent memory, but things have rather unravelled since then.

The appointment of Neil Warnock was misguided and there is currently a lot of frustration around Selhurst Park. 

In this piece we take a look at the worst moments of Palace's 2014. 

Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 Crystal Palace (11th January 2014)

Although Palace wouldn't have travelled to White Hart Lane with high hopes of picking up the three points, their performance here left many questions being asked. 

The Eagles slipped down to bottom of the league after this defeat and they appeared to be doomed. 

Newcastle United 1-0 Crystal Palace (22nd March 2014)

Thankfully for Palace their form after this Spurs defeat improved considerably and they went to St. James' Park outside the relegation zone. 

A strong run of victories had boosted confidence around the London club, but this result was one of the hardest to take of the whole season.

Palace had appeared to be collecting a valuable point from Tyneside after putting in a disciplined performance, but a last minute winner from Papiss Cisse forced them back into the thick of the relegation battle. 

This was to be the last disheartening moment of Palace's season, as they once again kicked on after this defeat and ended up finishing in 11th position in the Premier League

Crystal Palace 1-3 Sunderland (3rd November 2014)

Palace actually started the season fairly well, picking up eight points from their first six matches, but this defeat set alarm bells ringing about Neil Warnock's management. 

The experienced boss had been appointed in the summer after Pulis left and it was a decision which was met with widespread derision. 

As it turned out, Palace supporters were correct to be sceptical and this defeat highlighted everything wrong with the side under Warnock's guidance. 

Sunderland did not even have to play at their best, but they still had too much for the hosts to cope with and a 3-1 scoreline was a fair reflection on the game. 

Crystal Palace 0-1 Aston Villa (2nd December 2014)

Villa's form this season has not been good and this was a game that Palace simply had to win if they wanted to avoid a relegation fight.

As it was they appeared to be toothless and could have no complaints when Christian Benteke's moment of brilliance proved to be the difference. 

Crystal Palace 1-3 Southampton (26th December 2014)

This defeat plunged Palace into the relegation zone and it proved to be the end for Warnock.

Selhurst Park had been a fortress for the Eagles last season, but they have struggled in front of their own fans this time around and were thoroughly outclassed by the Saints. 

Palace are currently in 18th position after a miserable end to the year and the task for Alan Pardew, when he officially takes over, will be to guide the club away from the bottom three.
