    I hoped they would go down last year with that crook of a manager in charge, this crazy knee jerk reaction after only four games makes me even more hopeful that they crash and burn this season. Disgraceful and proves that they are only interested in preserving their position at the financial feeding trough that is the EPL.

    I think they'll be going down now regardless. I would have given FDB more time though - they were actually all over Burnley yesterday, if the ball would have went in the net for them they could have had a decent away win. Results business and all that.

    Hodgson to come in now and Championship for them next season.

    Difficult one tbh. So early on in the season, but with 4 defeats from 4, with zero goals, against the likes of Burnley, Swansea and Huddersfield. Their next four games are against Southampton, Citeh, United and Chelsea..Could easily be 8 games 0 points, never mind who's in charge. Disliked Palace since they had Pardew.

    I'm thinking of managing Crystal Palace as part of a month off work.

    Why does everyone hate Pardew? Very underrated manager.

    Absolutely ridiculous. Saw the highlights on the Beeb last night and Palace completely outplayed Burnley. Made a terrible start with the back pass to allow Burnley to score in the first three minutes but from thereon they made numerous chances. On another day it could have ended with Palace scoring three or four.

    Yes their next four games are difficult fixtures and if
    Dr Boer had kept his job there was every chance that it would be 8 losses out of 8. Saying that there is every possibility that whoever comes in now, or takes temporary charge, will get hee haw points from the first four games.

    Palace are a shambles. Hope they appoint Cathro.

    Ridiculous. I remember when we used to look at the crazy managerial tenureships in Italian and Spanish football. England is just as silly nowadays.

    In hindsight the owners were obviously delighted they lost yesterday as if they had a good win it would have been more difficult to sack especially given Hodgson had no doubt agreed to come anyway. Hope they go down.

    Roy Hodgson FFS. The old boys' network still in operation. After he managed to get England knocked out of a tournament against Iceland, he has no right to be employed as a manager anywhere. It's terrible the way these clowns keep being paid fortunes.

    Aye, I think he signed a 3 year deal so it'll no be cheap to pay him off, but then again, when you get about 100mil to just avoid relegation in that league, cash usually isnae a problem!!


    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

    Ridiculous decision, they wanted a manager to make the team play a certain way and that takes time. I watched last night's highlights and like us at the moment if they had been more clinical, they'd have won by a handful of goals and he'd still be in a job. Talk about knee jerk reaction, that chairman is an egotist look at me character.

    Laughable. The days not going to be far away where managers are going to be sacked from poisoned clubs before the league season even starts.

    Agree say an interview with him 3 weeks ago and he was going on about the start not being good enough and it having to get better soon. No mention of support for a new manager early days sort of thing which normal chairmen would have come out with.

    That brings it home to you. Still makes me feel ill...

    Farce of a game yesterday though. Palace players looked like a bunch of jokers at the local Pitz in front of goal, played really well up until someone actually had to have a shot.

    He's had the pretty much same start and end with each club he's managed. Can't organise a defence to save himself

    Too much has been made of their terrible start to the league. If they had gone 4 successive defeats without scoring in the middle of the campaign the reaction would not have been the same. A new manager needs time to get his ideas across and it could so easily have been a different story against Burnley. That back pass has basically cost the manager his job.

    Because he's a horrible arrogant tosser. I have a contact at
    Palace & some of the stories were horrendous. At Newcastle he achieved the impossible by making Ashley more popular.

    Which makes it even more bizarre they never changed managers before the international break.

    Stupid, stupid Crystal Palace.

    Appoint a guy who's tactical approach is complete opposite to how they've been playing, then wonder why it takes time to work...

    Sauzee hadn't just signed a three year contract a matter of weeks before he was sacked, as far as I'm aware.
