Crystal Palace

The Premier League really is the gift that keeps on giving - A satirists dream

Money wasted and ridiculous decisions made every week.

One can only imagine the reasoning of the people who run Crystal Palace - After Sam Allardyce kept them up ( against the odds ) he'd seen enough and walked away, so Palace decide that they've had enough of hoofing the ball 90 yards for whippet thin wingers to chase down and mis control into touch - We are going to play a different style of football.

Apparently they interviewed 37 !!! potential managers before settling on Frank De Boer whose past record was pretty shite but Hey - He was at Ajax !!  Ball on the deck, rotating of positions, excellent record of bringing through stellar youth players - Let's give Frank the job, sit back and watch the trophies roll in.

Unfortunately there was one tiny flaw in the plan - The players couldn't play like Ajax !  They weren't good enough footballers and they didn't have the mental aptitude to take change on board quickly ( You could argue at all )

So with no new additions to the squad they boldly set off with a back three and got dicked every week.

Oh Oh - You're shit Frank - You're sacked

Now - Who can we get to replace him that will inspire the players and fans, preferably someone who doesn't really have any recent baggage to carry around -

Mmmm - What about Roy Hodgson ?

Great Idea - What could possibly go wrong ??

Poor man, he should have applied to manage Penzance, he'd get a much longer tenure there!

I don't think he was given a fair chance Bruegel - if you're talking about De Boer ?

What I find as daft as the decision to sack De Boer is the decision to replace him with Roy Hodgson

The man is seventy years old !!

His last role as a manager / coach was overseeing the most embarrassing result in the history of our national team

You'd have thought he wouldn't have had the brass neck to show his face again in football but there's no honour or shame left in football whatsoever

I think Crystal Palace have made themselves look an absolute joke - But if they can finish seventeenth the chairman won't give a monkeys because the gravy train will keep rolling on

You're spot on sir - sadly. There are I'm sure, managers around without contracts who could do a good job there if given the chance. Can't blame Hodgson for taking the money when offered ( he must be worth a fortune from severed contracts alone) but, he really ought to retire and enjoy his money.
