If we have gone into this season with no back-up striker and requiring a keeper but with 40m still in the kitty someone at the top needs sacking.

Negligent management of the club by Parish. Commencing an overhaul of the playing style, without providing the requisite tools to do so. Then, following signs the team finally get the style and following an extremely unlucky loss v Burnley, we sack the boss and revert back to a new style under a new boss.

Starting the season with one fit striker.

Still, after 4 years of money league football, playing Joel Ward at right back.

Puncheon as club captain.

Jesus ******* christ. It's comical. Listed company and the board would have been sacked aeons ago.

Can't keep giving $hit goals away and not taking chances. Schlupp was turned far to easy and I can't defend Hennessey no more. Shocking effort from him.

As for the rest can we just put 9 players out next time and 2 corner poles for Ward and Puncheon as I'm sure the corner poles will be more useful. Both players are past it and today showed. Puncheon showed endeavour and tried but not up to it no more. What has he got on someone to remain on the pitch for 90 minutes. As for Ward, well as some have already mentioned that was one of the most shocking and inept performances I've seen.

Just shows how poor the squad is. 5 seasons and the lack of progression by the club is staggering.

No it won't. We will continue to lose ground to teams north of the river. Young South London kids will grow up following Chelsea and Arsenal. Palace will have demonstrated ONCE AGAIN they just cannot make it at the top level. God only knows what will happen to our finances and Palace will disappear into the lower divisions watched by the 12,000 die hards - until we all croak. Bottom line WE HAVE TO STAY UP (or die trying).

Pretty sure three of those were linked to championship clubs in the summer. Pretty much sums it up. As someone else said we should have shipped out 6 or 7 and brought adequate replacements in. Out summary transfer business was atrocious. No better than the squad last season which was already shite

No it won't. We will continue to lose ground to teams north of the river. Young South London kids will grow up following Chelsea and Arsenal. Palace will have demonstrated ONCE AGAIN they just cannot make it at the top level. God only knows what will happen to our finances and Palace will disappear into the lower divisions watched by the 12,000 die hards - until we all croak. Bottom line WE HAVE TO STAY UP (or die trying).

12000? Have you forgotten the days before the promotion? We go down with this squad and anybody worth their salt will leave and that's a free fall from then. I will be back to a much less crowded AW for sure though!

If we had found a replacement keeper and no injuries, not one of those players would start. But you're right they'd struggle to get into another team. Shows how poor the squad is and bad luck that our better players are the injured ones. Although saying that if everyone was fit I'm sure Puncheon would still find his way in to the starting 11.

Ok we lost, more disappointment and frustration, but on the bright side we are actually pressing, passing and looking fitter (Benteke apart) than we ever did under Pardew.

Unfortunately, we have mistakes in us and are paying the price for not investing where every Palace fan knows we should have invested this summer - Keeper and Striker.

We are also having to carry Ward and Punch. The quicker one of Sakho or Tomkins is fit the better as Fosu-Mensah looks far more composed and able than Ward will ever do on the right.

We have made it difficult by not setting up a proper recruitment team. Steve Parish making a few calls while trying to recreate the 80's on a yaucht harboured in some god awful cliche town in Spain is showing in this team.

There has been no thought about player downturn. Ward, McArthur, Puncheon, Hennessey are just not up to it. Physically Cabaye is teetering on the edge. None of these players have been earmarked for replacement.

One striker in the squad. One bloody striker! Is there any other team in the land with only one striker?!

Last minute purchasing. Get your signings done so that your manager understands the resources available and is able to plan.

This is all down to Parish and his senior team. The Americans, if we get ourselves out of this mess, need to jettison him. Or jettison themselves. An overhaul is needed.

Mr Palace
16-09-2017, 01:47 PM
We just look awful as an attacking force. A huge mistake with summer recruitment. Sign 47 defenders and leave us with barely any attackers. It's amateur hour.

Everyone has failed: the owners especially, FDB screwed us, the players are just bit trying enough and they aren't good enough, and Roy has a big job ahead. I'll forgive him his first team selection but how he picks puncheon or McArthur over Luka is beyond me.

We're staring down the barrel of 8 defeats out of 8, probably worth no goals. That's unheard of.

Tbf Long gets better service to 'work' to from better quality of players feeding him. Benteke just gets the ball lumped upto him then no one getting close to feed off from him. He looked a very frustrated figure and you could see he was getting annoyed and called for the ball to be hit into his body rather then lumped several foot over his head.

I have been saying where this club is going for several seasons. No quality alternatives up front for Zaha, Benteke and no replacement for Bolasie. We were crap last season and Parish's response is to sign 2 loanees and one defender.
We were always going to get Sakho back but the idea that we should sign no forwards is quite unbelievable. We have one proper striker who creates nothing on his own. It is a ******* joke.

Ah - and Sherwood is back to his old self again

- "should have got some strikers on the pitch" ...err we don't have any
- moaning about loftus cheek going off ...err he is just back from injury and was clearly tiring

So the players get a clean slate and the chance to impress a new manager - Again. What do they do ? - The same that they have been doing this season and last.

Apart from a period of 10 minutes in the 2nd half, this team played with no soul, passion, are totally toothless in attack, completely clueless in every other area of the pitch, and are an embarrassment to watch. At times i could not believe what i was seeing with the time they had on the ball, we just stood off them and allowed them to dictate play and just kept chasing shadows, it was boys against men.
We will all keep saying there is a long way to go, but at this moment i just can't see any way that we will avoid relegation especially with what we have coming up in the next 3 games, it could be EIGHT games without a POINT, this is a nightmare we could never have imagined.
What makes planning for the January window so difficult is, what do we plan for? currently we look certs for relegation so what quality players can we attract that could give us a lifeline of staying up, also would they join? and if relegated are left with expensive flops, or do we plan ahead for the Championship?
Who would have thought this could be the position we would be in after last season finished on a high by staying up, and with the knowledge of having Sam Allardyce planning what seemed a fruitful summer transfer window so as to consolidate Palace as a mid table team.
Never for a moment could we have envisaged where we were heading in just THREE short months to where we stand today, sadly this game gave us the answer.
There is a lot of searching questions that will need answering in the next few months and they will all be directed at Steve Parish as to how it was allowed to happen.

I still have hope ... but am keeping half an eye on the Championship/League One this year - and possible tasty fixtures against Shrewsbury and Peterborough.

glimmer of hope maybe, we only shipped 1 goal and they never looked like scoring again.

and neither did we!

Please add puncheon he is a complete waste of space. Maybe one positive involvement per game is not enough for an attacking player and no goals for god knows how long.

Absolutely this. Parish, Bright and Dougie - Comically bad upper management.

You missed Teflon from your list. And the passive/not passive yanks.

What is it with the booing at Selhurst now? You would have to be a pretty thick not to realise that Ruben has just come back from injury and was struggling in the second half. He missed pre-season. But even if it wasn't obvious that, what is the booing about? Ridiculous.
So the welcome to both of our last 2 Managers have been boos during their first PL matches. What has happened to us?

Roy's job is 'simple', he needs to find a way to make the players believe in their ability. We lack any characters who have some steel about them (possibly Sahko?). Nobody wants to impose themself on a game and take a risk. 2 years of awful results have created this.

We need to prepare for championship and cling onto green shoots of recovery even if they aren't enough this season.

Muted rather than hostile. Decision to sub RLC was rightfully booed IMO

Except rlc confirmed he had cramp...but don't let that get in the way eh..:rolleyes:

I must agree at his age time is running out at this level. Maybe hand over the captaincy to Sakho, because it is a weight on his shoulders, just like Dann last season, and give him a rest for reconsideration in 5-6 games. It just may give him the spark he needs.

McArthur ******* awful, Puncheon and Ward nearly as bad. Luka has to start, sheer class. RLC is wonderful and TFM is very intelligent and uses the ball smartly. Stick him at RB, drop Dann when Sakho is fit and put Tomkins next to him. Schlupp at LW while Wilf's out with PVA behind would help as well

not the worst performance ever but the changes are obvious imo. We had the better chances but as usual didn't take them
