I wasn't being critical nor getting annoyed just found it odd that he feels the need to post some of the stuff he does, especially stuff that is between family


It's a comment made on a thread about Steve Parish following my observations

Perhaps SP should hire them both. Reading this thread you'd think they'd be a celebration on this thread if he did.

Maybe Heb is digging you out in revenge for you being anti Irish?
Shane Long scores against Palace for Southampton and your go to insult is 'pikey twat'. Pikey because he's Irish? He's not part of the travelling community (such as Eastwood, Quaresma or Reyes) so why opt for that insult?

Best chairman in my lifetime, or least worse, and I go back to Ron, but it doesn't stop people from passing comment on him good, bad and indifferent does it?
Fair enough post in my view (FWIW etc).

There is limited middle ground in this discussion it seems. Both extremes (positive and negative) are IMO a little peculiar.

We have been riding our luck for quite some time now, and Parish has seemed to become an expert in crisis management. We have dug ourselves, through good decisions and hard work and some luck, out of holes in at least three of the past four seasons.

It seems as though fate, via a huge injury crisis, is conspiring to bring the luck home to roost this season. Of course it has been rank bad planning all of the way through since the appointment of De Boer and mind-boggling lack of relevant transfers into the squad. Having one fit striker, and him to be so out of form, and also two sub-standard goalkeepers of which one is now injured, is asking for trouble. Now with Zaha and a whole host of others out for varying periods, we will be deep in the bottom three by the time the run in of those last 6 "decent" fixtures comes. I just don't think we have the manpower to get anything from the top teams this time round, and the Huddersfield game is of course huge and a must not lose.

A reliance of loan players to fill some gaps and two mega transfers at the cost of developing the all round squad has meant that we have a good first 11 but little depth. Admittedly most teams would struggle under this number of injuries, but we had time in January to address at least some of the gaps. Hopefully Sorloth is the answer to some of this, but it's a big ask of him.

Hopefully we limp over the line in May and Hodgson continues next season, but I also hope that we go forward with some kind of coherent plan, because recently it hasn't been obvious what that is.

People are making out that SP has only recently come in for stick - this isnít true. This thread started in August 2014 even though each season since has ended successfully thereís barely been a break as this thread will testify. The whinging hasnít started because SPís luck has run out, itís always been there and always will be. I remember the whinging in our promotion season slating SP for his terrible transfer window and every season since despite some amazing times.

The facts are irrelevant - the whinging will always be there. The facts as I see them are that palace have been very successful since 2010 and punched well above their historic average level.

Someone somewhere must have done something right. Iíd love to know who people on this thread attribute this success to.
(Iím not suggesting itís all down the any single person by the way....)

Great post and totally agree. Effectively only replacing Sako with Sorloth given the known squad needs in Jan doesn't suggest much of a coherent plan. I fear it will cost us this time.

No not really monitoring them as such. That would be bizarre. But as a fairly regular poster myself its been clear for a long time that he is one of a clique of posters on here who seems to have made it his lifeís work to attack anyone who wished to discuss the way the club is run. Or who is critical of Parish and for that matter Pardew when he was in charge. So I now find his sudden attempt to reinvent himself as a fair minded poster who welcomes free speech and a hearty debate quite amusing. Just because the penny has dropped and itís now dawning on him that we might go down.
