Feel sorry for De Boer. 

Being asked to change a Club's whole philosophy, with Dougie Freedman as DOF ( :confused: ) and not much money (in the grand scheme of the EPL) to change the first XI is a huge ask. 

Especially in the time frame they clearly desire. 

I'm not saying Frank is a fantastic Manager, but that's not his side and I highly doubt Freedman coming in was his choice.

Don't agree with the changing a philosophy and too early to sack him comments in this thread. 

You can't expect to be safe when you lose all 4 of your first league matches, including 3 against relegation candidate teams in Huddersfield, Burnley and Swansea. Losing 3-0 at home to a promoted team and 2-0 at home to Swansea are shocking results. They've not scored a single goal in 4 games. Seems people want to stick up for him, say he deserves time solely on his connection with us. 

In regards to style of play, it's not like Palace were a long ball team or solely a physical side, they have numerous players who like to play passing football outside Benteke. The ingredients are there to play the style of football FDB wants.

I don't really feel that sorry for him because he should never have taken / applied for the Palace job.

Just can't feel bad for him at all. He picked the job and has absolutely refused to bend his 'philosophies' even slightly to help him. Absolute diddy.

I think most managers would take one look at Palace's team and know how to play.

de Boer might have been given a remit that included improving that style of play over time but to begin with you surely work with what you have and look to get the most out of it?

It's surely not hard to tell your defenders to mainly focus on defending rather than overplaying and to instruct your wingers and full backs to get early balls into the box for Benteke to attack or knock down for your midfield runners coming into the box.

It might be boring, old fashioned British football but it would work for Palace with the players they have available to them a lot better than whatever it is that de Boer is trying to do just now.

I think he will be sacked this week.

To be fair if he was managing here and we lost all our opening games I'd be looking him booted out aswell

The board have hung him out to dry if the rumours are to be believed. They brought him in with a view to changing their philosophy, didn't back him up with the initial transfer funds promised, then punted him when it inevitably went tits up.

I think there's a degree of that too.

If you hire a manager and you are forced to sack him after 77 days then the CEO who hired him should probably be fearing for his job too.
