...he's no manager.

Last time I commented on this site was 6-8 months ago when I begged you guys to support Gayle and push the coach into using him. I don't know how happy you guys are about Benteke, some feel he has started well, but Gayle is a huge loss.
Well, the better for him. He's doing really well in the Championship, he's a beast, both scoring and pressing the defenders, while Palace is doing awful under Pardew.

Now please, listen to me. This guy (Pardew) is impressive at being bad. You can't win many games with Kelly and Ward as full backs. Not even Souare is match winning material, but at least he was a left footed left back. Why in God's name doesn't the team have a left footed backup for the left back position? What was the manager thinking?
And don't tell me defenders only have to defend. I'd rather have them make 10 mistakes but contribute to 15 goals in a season, than make no mistakes and contribute with nothing. 6 wins and 4 loses bring you a lot more points than 10 draws.

And keeping Townsend soo long on the bench in the Chelsea game when Puncheon was soo out of it... The man wasn't even trying to run on the pitch, he had even sustained an injury!! Townsend needs to play as LEFT WING every match. He can cross amazingly fast for the striker. Yet, Pardew kept sending him in as right wing (even in the Chelsea game). Townsend doesn't have the technical ability to play on the opposite side of his favourite foot. All he knows from that position is to cut in and shoot. And Zaha is like that too. Playing Zaha and Townsend as inverted wingers destroys the team. They're not Robben, Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar or Mahrez to be able to do that. They're fast and athletic. Use them to run past defenders and cross!!

I've read some saying that the team played well against Chelsea and that Pardew should stay. Honestly, from an impartial point of view, Palace was awful. It was one of the worst displays of a home side I've seen. You are so scared of Chelsea, but outside of having a good run, that team hasn't got much. They might not finish in the top 4. They only have 3 attacking players (Hazard, Costa and Willian/Pedro), the rest are all defenders.
Crystal Palace is not headed in a good direction and, while I can't say that there is one really good manager in the Premier League, Alan Pardew surely is a lousy one

Zeki Fryers is a left footed back up.

Also, Townsend was absolutely rubbish when he came on.

You have a point to be fair why play Ward and Kelly? Speroni one cap short of the record and Campbell never gets 90 minutes both would be better than those two.

 


the dignified don't even enter in the game

I was being sarcastic. I thought it so ridiculous that there was no need for a smiley.

I was obviously wrong

Completely agree RE Ward and Kelly. Truly dreadful fullbacks. However, Townsend requests to play on the right, it's his preferred position.

But Fryers doesn't play. He only has 100 minutes all season, it's like he's not even considered by Pardew.

Townsend was rubbish cause he's used in the wrong position. Still, he was better than Puncheon. And Zaha was really rubbish against Chelsea too. If I think about it, the entire team was rubbish, I can't name one good player.

Delaney was close to calling an ambulance on grounds that he was old and sick in the 70th minute
