So after another dull, uninspiring defeat by a crap side, we need a manager that is uplifting, inspirational and can quickly change the fortunes and get the right pegs in the holes.

I thought we played pretty well today. Of course, difficult to truly judge when a team like Burnley could sit back and defend a gift of a goal against a side low on confidence but how we didn't come away with at least a point is criminal.

Dann could have had a hat trick but his miss at the end was every bit as bad as Lee's back pass.

Genuinely feel sorry for that as it is now the third game in a row thrown away by the players making terrible mistakes and deservedly being punished for them. If I were Parish I would be getting some ears down on the training pitch to ascertain whether the players are just crap or if they are making silly mistakes as they don't understand the way they are being asked to play.

What we lacked today was a world class attacker who can scare defences and we have just that coming back from injury. Such a shame the Premier League is so relentless and unforgiving as I think FDB will lose his job this week now but in reality there were lots of positives from the performance that we could build on.

Absolutely. We've had two of them, and they've both walked out after 6 months at the club. Having seen our appalling transfer window, SA was absolutely right to do so.

Indeed, it's bloody depressing reading the armchair critics slagging off OUR manager after 4 league games. Slag off Brightons manager or Charltons but show a bit of respect to OUR f@&kijg bloke.

FIFA playing bedroom managers feel they have the right to come on and spout all sorts of sh1t , whipping others into a feeding frenzy of negativity.

FdB may not be the answer but give the bloke a chance - we used to slag off Spurs fans for this attitude before and we are now just as bad.

Even though we totally outplayed Burnley if the stats are anything to go by yet had nothing to show, but at the end of the day our own stats of "nil" in games to date this season says action is needed and Now.
The players who are to blame for producing yet another blank and not FdB, but it will be him who will carry the can, and the longer we delay the inevitable the deeper we will be in the mire. Next weekend gives us realistically our Only chance of getting a point/points on the board but with our Home form of late makes that a game not to expect much from, and the THREE games that then follow makes it a possibility after EIGHT games we could be awaiting our First point, that to me cannot be acceptable.
Having now played Three teams of the Four games to date who would be expected to be near the bottom come the seasons end, it is only fair we should have expected to have yielded at the very least 7 points to date.
But as much as i feel it is wrong to sack a manager after just 4 games i don't think we have an alternative, and as the players look totally devoid of confidence and belief to then delay the inevitable seems pointless.
But lets not excuse Steve Parish for his part in this fiasco, having not supported FdB in the transfer window and leaving him out to dry, is unacceptable.
So who next into the lions den? I can't see too many takers for starters, so it leaves Freedman in the interim, but if Roy Hodgson is interested just appoint him asap hopefully to bring calm, stability, belief and hopefully better organisation which is desperately needed Now, and then in January clear out the deadwood and bring in the Four/Five new decent quality players needed, then hopefully we MAY survive.

To be honest, I would take Moyes right now. He has something to prove after last season.

Sunderland gave him no chance, no money, they conned him into the job, it's been said as much.

Look at the amount of money Mourinho prick has had to spend, to make himself look like the self proclaimed 'special one' again for the wankers compared to what they gave Moyes.

I would not be against Moyes, he has something to prove, and Parish has said we have a bit of money left for January.

**** me this thread is depressing

No, just a depressing reflection of some of our pant-shitting, 'you don't want to be in a foxhole with me,' fans.

We have been slowly backsliding for two seasons playing the same, 'giz-it-to-the-wingers-and-sling-it-in-innit' football and giving Pardewesque lip service to meaningful change without bringing in the technically accomplished players required, especially in midfield. We lost week-in, week-out, for a year. There are no more firefighters left to save us this time so I'm afraid we might have to actually evolve now and play f*cking technically proficient football like the rest of the division if we ever want to progress. We can't be the 21st Century equivalent of Wimbledon forever, even if some of us seem to revel in the idea of never even trying to be more than a slightly shabby, South London mosquito that gets by on scrappy wins and the occasional bite on a big team's arse.

The formula we have used has kept us up beyond our sell-by-date. We can't keep going on the presumption that a Wilf cross onto Benteke's head will get us to 40 points. They will get injured or leave us eventually. We have to adapt and face the painful change required. Thankfully we have a good enough squad to do that if we stand firm. If we quit after the first hurdle we will always be a few injuries away from relegation fodder and with a genuine glass ceiling to what we can become as a club.

Why are so many here so f*cking blind to that? Do we have such a pathetic and fearful lack of ambition? Isn't sport about trying to become as good as we possibly can?

I've watched Palace shoot itself in the foot as a club over forty years and I want to see some success here before I die. Real success. Not beating a few of the big boys and waiting for the law of averages to catch up with us before slinking back to the Championship where some of us honestly seem to think is our lot.

If we go down this season, I say let's do it not because we sold Ian Wright in '93 or had Chris Armstrong snort away the season in '95 or because we had a massive injury crisis throughout the midfield in '98 or because we didn't buy Tim Cahill in '04. All those things happened because we were a little club and we couldn't survive the circumstances because we had to behave like a little club. We have millions to spend now. We have a freedom to define our club like never before. If we go down, let's do it by at least trying to evolve.

Unlike some here, I have no problem saying we need to move to the 'next level.' Charlton were not wrong to aspire to that and we are wrong if we don't have similar ambition. FdB's philosophy is how we can truly progress and I can't understand being a fan of a football club unless you want that club to be all it can be. Sadly, many here just don't seem to see it that way.

The formula we have used has kept us up beyond our sell-by-date. We can't keep going on the presumption that a Wilf cross onto Benteke's head will get us to 40 points. They will get injured or leave us eventually. We have to adapt and face the painful change required. Thankfully we have a good enough squad to do that if we stand firm. If we quit after the first hurdle we will always be a few injuries away from relegation fodder and with a genuine glass ceiling to what we can become as a club.

Why are so many here so f*cking blind to that? Do we have such a pathetic and fearful lack of ambition? Isn't sport about trying to become as good as we possibly can?

I've watched Palace shoot itself in the foot as a club over forty years and I want to see some success here before I die. Real success. Not beating a few of the big boys and waiting for the law of averages to catch up with us before slinking back to the Championship where some of us honestly seem to think is our lot.

If we go down this season, I say let's do it not because we sold Ian Wright in '93 or had Chris Armstrong snort away the season in '95 or because we had a massive injury crisis throughout the midfield in '98 or because we didn't buy Tim Cahill in '04. All those things happened because we were a little club and we couldn't survive the circumstances because we had to behave like a little club. We have millions to spend now. We have a freedom to define our club like never before. If we go down, let's do it by at least trying to evolve.

Unlike some here, I have no problem saying we need to move to the 'next level.' Charlton were not wrong to aspire to that and we are wrong if we don't have similar ambition. FdB's philosophy is how we can truly progress and I can't understand being a fan of a football club unless you want that club to be all it can be. Sadly, many here just don't seem to see it that way.

I agree. Even if we go down I want us to stick with FDB. We need stability. We need to develop. I don't care what Brighton do. We can't keep changing managers. I know we've had 4 resign for a variety of reasons since 2011. If we had a stronger squad we would progress.FDB was not backed enough in the window. This squad with wilf fit struggled for 2 seasons. Why do we expect FDB to transform them into the invincibles in 8-10 weeks?

Our failure to secure a striker in the window is what's costing us now - let's hope Connors not far off full fitness.

If we have to keep playing that dismal counter attacking football that just about works away from home but rarely works at home (6 wins per season) I would suggest that we need to change the players that cannot do the basics most of the time like control a ball, pass a ball 10yds, take a throw on to one of our players, make space to receive a ball from a throw in, hit the thing with a net behind it etc etc

2007: Quit Finland on 30 November after failing to secure qualification for Euro 2008. Appointed Fulham manager two months later.

2008: Fulham won four of their last five Premier League games of the season to stave off relegation.

2009: Guided the Cottagers to their highest ever top-flight finish, seventh, and ensured Europa League qualification.

2010: Oversaw a stunning second-leg comeback against Juventus in the Europa League quarter-finals on the way to losing 2-1 against Atletico Madrid in extra-time in the final in Hamburg. Record (all competitions): P171 W64 D50 L57. Announced as new manager of Liverpool on a three-year contract in July.

2011: Liverpool announce Hodgson has left the club on 8 January. Record (all competitions): P31 W13 D9 L9. Took over as West Brom coach on 11 February after the Baggies parted company with Roberto Di Matteo and led them to 11th after a strong end-of-season run.

2012: West Brom granted the Football Association permission to speak to Hodgson about the vacant manager's position on 29 April. Record (all competitions): P43 W20 D14 L19. Confirmed as England manager on 1 May.

Everyone fails with England. Forget that.

it was the nature of the failures though, the complete shambolic incompetence, worse than any other England manager in history bar Taylor and that is saying something

RH is a has been he its just like SM had his day got jobs on the back of England failure and went on to fail at club level, i hope he does well and if we field our best eleven/ten i am sure we will stay up but how bad were England under him for me a poor decision FDB would have been better long term but maybe player power has got him the sack a sad day for us as a club.

Lukaku... that's why he did well at wba

Maybe...so if we get ourselves a big quality Belgian centre forward he could do quite well then? Oh, wait ;)

Suspect Andros loves Roy too...he kept picking him for England.

Just like he did with the England team :grrr:

Nobody looks good as England manager.

Im more inclined to look at the way he managed at the baggies and fulham. 2 similar sized clubs as palace.

He was excellent.

At least after Woy has come and gone there won't be any OAPs left that we haven't already employed before. We might finally employ someone that's not about to retire and back them properly, haven't we learned? We'll be seeking another manager in May/June or maybe even before that cos I've got no faith in Woy.

Roy with Lewington and Sammy Lee is about as safe a pair of hands as we can get and right now we need a safe pair of hands. With the fixtures coming up we're going to have very few points after 8 games and be marooned at the bottom, change had to happen and i welcome it.

for any new manager the biggest concern is the lack of fire power.

If Benteke gets injured we are screwed doesn't matter who the manager is

That should have been the biggest priority in the window and that will cost us - not sure who's fault that was but a massive error

Benteke is two bookings away from a ban, probably two-game ban at rate he's going. We knew we needed another striker before Wickham's injury and Campbell's release.

Seems like one extreme to the other. If it's true FDB took part in the training sessions, showed off his skills to get players to perform techniques they were uncomfortable with (if the news paper reports true) Roy never did this when he was young and will hardly join in now. Unless training becomes walking football,

Roy will set up the team, its formation and how he wants to play. He will have coaches put it into practice.

Not too fussed either way...he won't be here for long.

We still have a dodgy goalkeeper, and we are short of strikers, nothing Woy can do about that.

However if he drops Puncheon or at least plays him on the wing, I'll start to think he has a clue.

Steve Parish. What the f**k are you doing? Saviour you may have been, but you have made a massive mistake. Again.
Warnock second time was a howler. Lucky the thief who is also an excellent manager was there to save us that time....now appointing Woy is the absolute worst idea you have shown yet. I so hope this is not true. Yet like a slow motion car crash I see it unfolding - much like all you have built so far feller. The love for ex players - Pardew never loved the club mate, watch the Newcastle interview where he said that. Woy was never part of this club for more than a few months as an apprentice apparently. But that's enough is it SP?
Benteke on corners. Booking quarter final hotels for the missus before a non league club knock us out. A personality that makes FdB look interesting.

Steve Parish what have you done?.
