De Boer a game away from sack

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.

In any other league that would probably be the case. But managers coming and going is so frequent in that league it is pretty much the norm. Clubs are so cash rich in the EPL that they'll not take any risks which might result in them being relegated. 

If they are still in this position come November/December you can bet the next manager will be out the door too. I remember Fulham going through 3 managers the season they went down.

Crystal Palace Football Club have this morning parted company with Frank de Boer.

We would like to thank Frank for his dedication and hard work during his time at the Club.

A new manager will be appointed in due course and we wish Frank the very best of luck for the future.

There will be no further comment at this time.

 

:lol:

Wait for the "we dodged a bullet" comments :lol:

Not so much dodged a bullet. I was all up De Boer. 

But from these past four games he's a man that's shown that he won't change his style of play and is dogmatic in pushing forwards his philosophy, regardless of the players he has or the opposition he's playing.... Remind you of anyone?

Not really fair to say that about him after 4 games though. After 10 or 15 games then fair enough. Plus he has mixed it up a wee bit during games going long to Benteke.

I appreciate it's only 4 games and it's completely ludicrous that he's been sacked in that period of time.

But if he's the type of manager that puts a brand of football over winning matches then he's definitely not the guy we need in charge at the moment.

They knew the type of manager they were bringing in. I don't think he is as dogmatic as you say he is but his style was still always going to be a gamble in that league. They didn't back him properly and now they've hung him out to dry.

if you watched the game yesterday they were by far the better team but for a crazy back pass and some bad misses they would have won  how can you blame the manager for that

as for saying it was his football ideas that cost them  most of the game they sent long balls up to benteke

Said the same yesterday, 22 attempts at goal, the manager is doing his job if the team can create so many chances away from home but he can do fuck all about the woeful finishing from his players, the English premiership is fucked, the panic button gets pressed all to easy nowadays....let's not be kidded slaven Bilic is in need of a win tonight or he could follow the same fate.

Parish is a coward. Them clubs at the bottom are like a rabbit in headlights. Panic like little bitches. You are either good enough to stay up or you aren't. 4 games and you sack him. Pathetic.

I can't believe he's been sacked after 4 games. 

Frank has his own style which was going to be hard to implement after taking over from Big Sam. 

Mental.

It is absurd.

But by context, I read somewhere that Crystal Palace had a wage budget bigger than Scottish football combined (circa £65m).

Money has warped the rational out of English football. A club that have never won a major trophy, can have a wage budget bigger than the entire football pyramid in a neighbouring country.

De Boer had a bad start, but was given an impossible task. Money brings with it arrogance of expectation.

I'm sure FDB will enjoy the severance pay..Crazy to get the sack after 4 games though..And Woy is surely a backward step as regards Footballing philosophy..??

85 days at Milan, 4 games at palace, think he will struggle to get a decent job with those records. On paper it doesn't sound great
