Mr.Crooks is 65 himself. A younger pundit might be in order.

My complaint mainly focussed on him commenting at length about a different topic ( Andersen/VAR ) when it was supposed to be about his selection of Eze for his team of the week.

I am afraid that Mr Crooks is suffering from Victim Mentality, which has been banged on about in the press and elsewhere, whereby if you are a person of colour then your life is automatically inferior to that of a comparable person who is white. The fact that Palace have a near complete coloured team, and the player that Mr Crooks chose (Eze) is a person of colour, is irrelevant; Hodgson is white and is in charge of a squad of mostly black players. Therefore it is reminiscent of slave owner and slaves. Obviously the fact that Mr Lineker has been supported in his 'off-topic' comments recently, means that Mr Crooks feels that he can do the same.

 


hats off to palace, they were always gonna be louder, and hate to say it but they were impressive ALL bouncing and singing.

Seriously?

These guys earn more in a week than some do in a year. They are extremely fortunate that football economics means that they can become multi-millionaires for kicking a little ball around a field.

Crookes and the other idiots need to stop whining and face reality.

I think "some" should be changed to "most".

Well done YT and thanks, done mine:

Garth Crooks often demonstrates an insistence for giving his opinion despite it offering no insight or remote demonstration of intelligence however I have found his latest comments offensive.

He should be within his rights to subjectively criticise Crystal Palace and forever complain about Patrick Vieira's completely deserved sacking, albeit it would be preferable elsewhere than via the public broadcaster, however his statement apropos Roy Hodgson's employment at Crystal Palace are ageist, possibly racist but downright offensive - "All they need now is a young manager to help them develop. Oh yes - they had one of them and decided to get rid of him."

To anybody remotely informed this is an insult to somebody still in employment, a mockery of his age (75) and potentially a personal, subjective and a not only highly ignorant but juvenile and bitter statement. It's offensive, ignorant and ludicrous he remains in your employment, I would strongly suggest my cat has more interesting and informative insight to offer on footballing matters. At the very least he will launch less personal attacks on the elderly.

I played the race card, if only for the irony

You put it much more eloquently than I did! Well done. And well done everyone else who has had a go.

I complained as well, but Crooks will just look at this clutch of emails sent within minutes of each other and surmise it's a lot of resentful Nigels.

Careful. You vill be on ze list.

A classic episode of Dad's Army, but the hilarious section about Pte Walker taking the captured Germans' fish and chip orders has been overshadowed by the classic "Don't tell him, Pike!" moment.

I am a resentful Nigel. Resentful about people being judged based on a protected characteristic.

But that is my point (all be it that I didnít mention it directly), it doesnít matter what the positives are, Mr Crooks will always find a perceived negative to focus on. It doesnít matter that Patrick didnít play the same team in the same way, Hodgson replaced him. Old and white male replaced young and gifted black; results on the field are irrelevant.
