I seem to remember Ron Noades saying something similar and getting a royal roasting in return.

Moving away from the weird 1970s-era comment, I do think we could do with someone in the middle of the pitch to bark orders and lead by example. Bright has talked about how quiet the team are, with McArthur known to be one of the few vocal players (and he's out obviously). If we were able to bring an experienced pro in who could organise the team and lift them when things aren't going their way, like Hendersen does for Liverpool and England, then I think that would make a big difference. Vieira has also referenced wanting some experience in the squad, so I wouldn't be surprised if that's what he's asked for too.

Yes, we do need more players like them, but the colour of their skin is irreverent, we need a complete new style, manager and attitude, the comment that a more direct style wouldn't work now, is Ridiculous, what wont work is trying to play our painful to watch style of play, without a center forward.

 


Does anyone know the way? Did we hear someone say?
(We just haven't got a clue what to do!)
Does anyone know the way? There's got to be a way

Not as stupid as this post or most the posters on here, lose a couple of games and there's no spirit, the manager is terrible, we need a new squad etc win a couple of games and we have the best centre backs in the division, eze will win the ballon d'r in 3 years followed by a thread if we could get top 4.

Just look at it as a sort of Hol therapy - better they come on here and get it off their chest than go home and kick the dog or beat the wife...

F***ing 'el.

If we really wanted to descend into cultural, mass-labelling of our squad, completely separated from football, I'd look up 'Generation Z' which might be more relevant if anything is at all.

Resorting to 'white players work harder' is a very strange comment indeed.


for people born or raised in this country - yes.

So, what are you saying? That Afro/Caribbean players are lazy or have no fighting qualities? Hmmmm

Welcome back Ron Noades.

We probably do have the best centre backs outside the top 6. However, we have one left back, possibly the worst central midfield options in the entire division and amongst the weakest forwards.

We have a few very good players. It's just the depth of the squad that is the problem.

When you look at our bench it is the worse it's been for several years. Schlupp should never be playing centre midfield but he has too as we only have 2 others (Doucoure and Hughes) who should be any where near a premier league squad. If we have 3-4 injuries there is no adequate cover. Even 3-4 years ago there were better back up options.

That's what fans are concerned about and the board's apparent reluctance to do anything about it.

Hmmm I wouldn't say that to someone like Darren Moore or our very own Andy Gray / Eric Young / Tony Finnegan to name but a few.

F*ckin'ell...have I travelled back to 1978 when a lot of people thought it was cheating having Vince Hilaire in the team? I'm embarrassed that a fellow Palace fan with our long tradition of successful black players can spout bollox like that. I suspect it's more that we currently do not have enough talent in the squad more than skin colour. I don't think anyone would have accused PV of not having enough spirit, determination and aggression back in his playing days!
