I simply won't have it.
Probably being whooshed, but they don't get paid enough these days. Easier and cheaper to sit in the office sipping espressos and knocking up speculative bollocks based on social media drivel.

The other side of the coin is that the players cost and are worth millions of pounds. If your most valuable assets are not being played and are unhappy the value of that player drops and if they decide they want to leave a club like Palace get screwed. I read somewhere that Mandanda went back to Marseille for about 2m. We would struggle to get a top championship replacement for double that.

Brighty's role is to be the conduit between the youth teams up to U23's. He liaises with the respective managers and they meet to report of progress - which players may move up between teams and ultimately which ones to keep on at the end of the season.

He also keeps abreast of the players out on loan. Speaks to the players and the loan team managers to see how there doing. He also goes and watches the loan players and reports back himself.

I know this as he once told me

It must be quite odd for this particular group of players having had four different Managers and coaching teams directing them over the past 10 months. Each with their own styles ideas and tactics. A fairly unusual circumstance.

It would be interesting to know their thoughts on the various and different approaches. But basically they are Pro's and appear to look after themselves. Just hope a bit of stability now will allow them to settle into a style and show what they are capable of. A few of them are familiar with RH. Townsend scored two or three good goals under Roy for England I seem to recall.

Saw Roy kicking a ball in his "First Day" video. Do hope the players don't feel their egos have been put under attack by this.

Lacking charisma? Naaa that's bollocks.

I was talking to a South African about de Boer at a work dinner a couple of nights ago.

He said the Afrikaners have an exaggerated Dutch personality. Direct to the point of bluntness and coming across to other South Africans as pretty unfriendly.

He told me something quite interesting that I didn't know before. He said even as an 'English South African' it was difficult to assimilate into the British culture of saying things without saying them. But he also admits having to tell newly arrived South Africans to "chill out".

Chung-yong, Kelly, Delaney, Ward? They are the ones reported as being unhappy.

Don't get me wrong, as messed up as this whole process has been I am pleased that the club actually had a replacement lined up and ready to go. I am also a fan of Roy, and think he could be a good fit.

He did a good corner at Sunderland last year which went where Benteke wanted it around the penalty spot and resulted in a headed goal. He also managed that goal at Stoke.

Lots of travelling and watching football.

I'd imagine every team in the Prem and even the Championship has someone doing a similar role.
