To be fair to Roy, if you had Mateta, Edouard and Ayew to choose from, then Ayew is the better player. Mateta - don't know what he is. Edouard - lazy enough. Ayew - solid international, has scored goals at this level, always tries hard but only an average players really, except for his outstanding work rate. Wins loads of fouls. Who would you honestly pick of the three? That's why we're always linked with strikers.

Yes defo start Ayew over ED or Mat, only get a new striker if one of them leaves.

His answers did give the impression ,he hasnít actually been asked to take up another contract. When he says if the question is asked, he would have to think hard for the answer maybe the last few weeks has made him realise he might not any longer be able to carry the load for a whole season. In fact something in his body language suggests that , not much spark.
If itís not for Roy, I hope Palace look outside of the club, it rarely works anywhere promoting from inside, and there is no one on the Palace staff with anywhere near enough experience to not end up sacked after 8 to 10 games.
The problem being finding a talent willing to work within the limitations that Palace have.

Cooper,perhaps,who has pulled off a miracle in keeping Forest up??

I do rate Steve Cooper highly after his exploits at Swansea and Nottm Forest, not forgetting his successes with the England U17 team.

imagine if we had Roy all season.

A top 5 finish ? Maybe not.

but we could certainly have given Fulham/Brentford a run for their money.

I think its impossible for Steve Parish not to offer Roy and his team another year. Its wether Roy wants it or not. Roy has galvanised the team and got them playing creative exciting football. You shouldn't fix something when it's not broken.

The thing is if Roy wants the job and isnt given it and the new manager whoever he may be is a disaster, what do we do, go back to Roy, or gamble on another manager, if halfway through the season it is not going well or Roy isn't physically up to the job, then there will be candidates who will be available, i am very nervous about any manager who hasn't worked in either of the top two divisions of English football.

 


Tell me, is something eluding you, sunshine?
Is this not what you expected to see?
If you wanna find out what's behind these cold eyes
You'll just have to claw your way through this disguise

Roy has made it clear that itís the media who are retiring him but as far as heís concerned heís happy to continue with a project if of sufficient interest.
That project may as well be Palace.
People make assumptions because of his age.

I was reading an interview with Allardyce about why he wants to continue.
Without football he said his day to day decisions were limited to whether to have a poached egg on toast for breakfast, when to go for a walk around the reservoir and what to watch on Netflix.

To football people who still feel they can contribute that may not be enough.
I would put Roy in this category and itís beyond dispute that the current squad have responded positively to him.
Age isnít everything and younger managers such as Lampard, Gerrard, Vieira and Marsch havenít exactly got their players outperforming or indeed even fulfilling their potential.

Roy seemed in prickly mood when asked perfectly reasonable questions about his future on MOTD after the Forest match.

Has there been a contretemps with SP?

This was a brutally tough PL season. Next season is much weaker with Luton, Sheffield, and Burnley replacing Leeds, Leicester, and So'ton.

Roy has gotten a tune out of this squad, even with Wilf out most of the time. To me, it's a no brainer to give Roy a new one year contract. It's the least risky move we can make.

If we don't retain Roy, then we're right back to rolling the dice with some random manager like PV or FdB. Why risk it? What's the reward? To me, it's more likely that whoever we sign would be the same or worse than Roy. Roy's only downside is his age, but he still seems into it, and is clearly a better manager than the much younger PV.

 


2017 Feb. (Van Aanholt) Palace 1 - 0 Middlesboro
2018 Jan. (Sako) Palace 1 - 0 Burnley
2019 May (Batshuayi, Batshuayi, OG, Van Aanholt, Townsend) Palace 5 - 3 Bournemouth
2020 Feb. (Van Aanholt) Palace 1 - 0 Newcastle

Heís probably just bored with the media asking him the same old questions. The interview with Gary Neville recently I thought he looked well up for it. Anyway instead of the usual will Wilf stay or go this summer, you can add to that Roy, Eze, Olise, Guehi

Often most PL seasons at least one of the newly promoted teams gets relegated, this time none of them did, will they suffer from second season syndrome ? well time will tell - I dont think that the 3 promoted teams are going to be weaker, they won the right to be in the PL & will offer a different challenge, Burnley are a different animal from the one we have known previously, Sheffield will be big & physical, who knows what to expect from Luton & of course will one or more of them do a Forest & buy everything with a player registration & a pulse.

Never dull in the PL -

I hope it's a two year deal. The first as him as manager and the second as assistant manager to Paddy
