Most of what say is good apart from saying fans 0 for booing, how else can we show our disapproval ?

As an aside, I saw someone questioning PVA taking set pieces.

But his corners led to two good chances for Benteke which very nearly led to goals.

Yeah, you aren't interested in views on a message board but happy to post your own.

One of which about Punch merely exposes you as a troll and a complete ****wit. Typical of so many arseholes around clubs. Oh, and you are a complete and utter prick.

Stab yourself in the eye and hopefully into your brain if you have one.

One bad result ? Mate you need to realise how bad a result that was. If you can sweep that away under the carpet and move on what will you call a really bad result ?

Not the kind of response I would expect from an adult Palace fan.

Out fought & out thought by Huddersfield?

Apart from RLC, who has played this system before, wouldn't say any of the players look comfortable with it and all this rubbish about possession football, not seen that many hoof balls since Warnock was manager.
Don't see any quick fix her short of buying another 6 or 7 players, which ain't going to happen!
Why does every recent manager we get try to turn us into something we are not? .

Hennessey 5 Should've done better for the 3rd goal. Not really to blame for the other 2. Involved in dodgy back passes and tried to pass out from the back. The manager is to blame. Shit tactics our players are not suited to.

Ward 5 Great last ditch tackle. Played out of position. Limited game time in pre season. Mistakes by the manager. Wrong system and poor pre season planning.

Fosu Mensah 5 Started despite joining 2 days ago!! Joke decision by the manager. Great last ditch tackle.
Dann 5 Awful pass nearly led to another goal conceded but he was the best of the back 3.
Riedewald 2 Joke defending for their 2nd goal. Put Hennessey in trouble with awful back passes. Did he win a header today? Another mistake by the manager to play him. Not been here long enough to start and doesn't deserve to oust players already here.

Van Aanholt 5 Better set pieces than Puncheon. Defensively dodgy and not as effective going forward today.

Milivojevic 4 Played out of position all pre season yet played in the correct position today! Didn't play well. Another player disrespected by the manager.
Puncheon 2 Useless and has been for a while. A midfield 3 of Milivojevic, Cabaye, and Loftus Cheek is needed. We'll play 2 though in this shit De Boer system, with Puncheon, meaning 2 great players on the bench/sold/out of position.

Loftus Cheek 7 motm Really impressed great passing and vision. Good physique able to tackle and put himself about. Great signing De Boer. Unfortunately he started out of position as we play a system which doesn't work. The manager is to blame for that.
Benteke 4 All pre season he got no service. He doesn't create chances and he only scores with his head. We need to play direct to get the best out of him. Laughable that the Huddersfield striker can shoot but ours can't. 30 million but so one dimensional at times.
Zaha 7 Hacked all over the park. Involved in some decent moments. Our best attacking threat by a mile.

Subs
Townsend 6 Good performance. On the bench because of the crap De Boer system fitting in square pegs in round holes.
Tomkins 5 Another player disrespected by the manager should be starting like Townsend.

De Boer 0 Disgrace.

On at least one occasion today I thought it would of been to our benefit just to get on with it with a quick free kick whist the defence were still trying to get back sort out their wall.

No doubt referee Jon Moss would not allow the action to flow so quickly but I did think there was an opportunity there to exploit at one of the free kicks.
Wouldn't matter. We always hit the closest player in sight anyway

I rejoiced when he stepped up for them, water to kick a hole in the Tele watching puncheons corners neatly floated into the keepers gloves

Having watched the highlights I cannot understand what Jairo was doing for the third goal. As Huddersfield broke through the acres of space left behind a static PVA, Jairo seems intent on cuddling their new striker. Then he lets him go and allows him to run unmarked into the box.

Quite frankly he doesn't look up to the task and yet we spent nine million on him.

RLC pass to Zaha in the 2nd half could be the best pass I have ever seen a Palace player hit.

His debut was the most promising thing in a very dark day for FDB in his first competitive Palace match.

Loftus Cheek 7 motm Really impressed great passing and vision. Good physique able to tackle and put himself about. Great signing De Boer. Unfortunately he started out of position as we play a system which doesn't work. The manager is to blame for that.
Benteke 4 All pre season he got no service. He doesn't create chances and he only scores with his head. We need to play direct to get the best out of him. Laughable that the Huddersfield striker can shoot but ours can't. 30 million but so one dimensional at times.
Zaha 7 Hacked all over the park. Involved in some decent moments. Our best attacking threat by a mile.

Subs
Townsend 6 Good performance. On the bench because of the crap De Boer system fitting in square pegs in round holes.
Tomkins 5 Another player disrespected by the manager should be starting like Townsend.

De Boer 0 Disgrace.
Probably the most accurate ratings ever.

Apart from RLC, who has played this system before, wouldn't say any of the players look comfortable with it and all this rubbish about possession football, not seen that many hoof balls since Warnock was manager.
Don't see any quick fix her short of buying another 6 or 7 players, which ain't going to happen!
Why does every recent manager we get try to turn us into something we are not? .
Good post.

Buck stops with Parish regarding your last sentence.
