Croydonlad - you cannot just say - it's true when it isn't!
First of all we are not bottom - we are second bottom according to the League table - that's true!
Your opinion on Freedman is your opinion - mine differs - neither are true they are just opinions.
Next year we will be in the Championship - let's wait and see should we when we are just two games into the new season with 36 more to go!
Parish wanted De Boer - he might have wanted others as well but he was happy to get him - whether he proves to be any good only time will tell.
I agree it doesn't look pretty right now and I have concerns like every other Palace fan but really - after two games we are finished are we?
If Freedman were to take over maybe it would be a good thing but it is a supposition at best.
As for Pulis - they fell out over Wilf and Pulis behaved badly - end of.
Sam left because (it is strongly rumpoured)a friend of his died in the Manschester bombing and for him it was a life changing moment and he wanted out - for you to say it was about lack of investment is your opinion not a fact!
Transfers right now seem to be really odd in that we don't have anyone other than the three done already - why - who knows?
Lack of funds, over priced poor quality players - who knows.
I doubt there are many happy Palace fans around right now with two losses in the opening two games and what appears to be a strange policy of square pegs in round holes where the players are concerned but it really is early days.
Smile!!

Yeah, all Freedman and nothing to do with scouts or agents pimping out their players. Freedman is bloody great! Can't understand why he hasn't been appointed chief scout at another club...

You could say that about any manager in the football league. They will all have a wealth of supposed talent suggested to them one way or another, but the skill is sorting the gold from the iron pyrites.

If Freedman is able to successfully shortlist the most promising for FdB's perusal, he will be doing a good job. If he can complete a deal, within budget, quicker than SP, he'll be doing a brilliant job.

No one has any idea what he can do in this post, at this level, so it's probably best to let him get on with it and see how it goes. I can't see how we have anything to lose.

First of all if by me talking the truth is negative ~ then so be it
But it is the truth
Secondly , its NOT ME that calls people names ~ Its others using the terms such as " knob " and " bell end " etc etc
And lastly , as far as me not knowing what Im talking about goes
I suggest you look at the threads I post and tell me where Im wrong ??
We are bottom of the league , no system , not enough players and now we have a Championship standard director of football .
Now if this is negative sorry , but its factual

...and the Selhurst pies are s***, apparently.

 


Most certainly not European.

Absolutely.

I have no idea as to what are his 'Terms of reference' indeed 'Sporting Director' can mean different things at different clubs - there is no template for such a role.

Let's see how he gets on.What many on here fear is that if FDB fails, Freedman will be handed the reins - my goodness HOL will be awash with hysterical and investive rhetoric with opprobrium flying like a grit-studded snowball.

I do admit to being slightly underwhelmed by Freedman's appointment, but that was mainly due to so many people thinking he is a ready made replacement for FdB. I am, however, pleased that we have at last filled this position with a "football" person, so that the many cock ups of this summer (ie no contingency for Allardyce leaving, inadequate pre-season etc) should not be repeated, and Parish can spend his time doing his proper job and not trying to involve himself in football matters that he clearly does not fully comprehend.

Allardyce has himself confirmed that he made the decision to leave before the Hull game (which was on May 14) and, therefore had nothing whatsoever to do with the Manchester atrocity. It's better not to repeat fake news and to instead stick to the facts:

FYP are basically Parish's propaganda machine and are far too pally with him to be critical even if they wanted to be.

Maybe, but this part of the article is purely clarifying what one is/does as many seemed to be questioning the point of one as much as who we've hired.

It did go on to say that only time will tell if it/Dougie was the right decision for us.

 


Will this be five? It's gonna be five! It IS five!

No it isn't, it's an opinion. And a bollocks one, at that.
