Think that would suit Burnley. Their defenders IMO are vulnerable to players running at them. Play our best XI and get at them is our best chance as it always is.

Zaha (and maybe RLC) is/are injured.

Football is a game of fine margins. It's perfectly possible to lose any given game without being innept or incompetent. I feel really uncomfortable with this notion that FDB is gone if we lose. I think that entirely misses the reasons for keeping him or letting him go. If the only thing keeping him in the job is 3 points at the weekend then he should be gone anyway. Otherwise if he has the support of the dressing room and an agreed method with the board he should obviously be given more time regardless of the result.

all of this.

Keeping his job because we fluke a 1-0 win whilst getting battered on the pitch would be as silly if he lost it because we played them off the park but managed to lose 1-0.

Agree with this...but...if we lose on Sunday, we'll be staring down the barrel at the very real possibility of being Played 8, Lost 8 in a few weeks time, given the fixtures.

It's perfectly possible to lose any game, yes, but it's equally unprecedented (probably?) for any team to lose the first 8 games of any Premier League season.

In any case can anyone see FDB trying to go Pulis style? Nope, me neither.

Bottom 3 after 8 games last season Sunderland 2, Swansea 4 and Stoke 6. Would probably settle for 4 at this time, 8 games with no points is just unthinkable Sunday has become very important.

Wheel out Wilf, the manager's job is on the line.

In all seriousness it will be an extremely tough game. Don't forget that Burnley have an excellent record in the Premiership at Turf Moor. We are missing key players through injury. FdB hung out to dry with a threadbare squad, probably not of his choosing. Ridiculous.

FDB is under pressure already but he will not lose his job or be hung out to dry if we lose on Sunday:-
Unless we play an abject miserable game devoid of any ambition, system or game-plan. Then I could see the pressure really mount on him.

In very recent talks and discussions with SP he surely has been given more time to put over his possible changes in plans and formations, style of play and what he expects from the squad into practice.

However everyone knows FDB has not got long to put all the pieces together and make this work. I for one hope he does and soon.
A draw on Sunday would not be a disaster!
The week after however Wilf's return and a Selhurst Park welcome back to Sakho before beating Southampton would just be the icing on the cake for me. I think FDB would settle for that as well!

Yes, because we won't play 4-2-3-1 with Sakho and Zaha in the team.

This is Palace. We will win at Burnley and FDB will keep his job but we will then lose at home to Southampton and he will get fired after yet another home defeat. God help anyone coming in quickly after Southampton though looking at the next three fixtures!

We will lose at Burnley and FdB will get the push.
Dougie will take over as caretaker and lose the next four.
Leaving Big Sam to make a glorious comeback beating the Toon and Wham, thus leading us charging up the table.

Not really but it really depends on the performance. If we are creating chances, not looking shit at the back but get done on a set piece then you can kind of forgive that

It's the 'creating chances' that I'll be looking for as that has been worryingly missing from all our games under FDB including the friendlies. Law of averages really; the more you create the more chance of scoring. I still can't believe we've gone three league games without scoring a goal - think that is a season starting club record.
