A final plea to the manager and a final pledge to the players

Firstly, a plea to you Big Sam:

PLEASE GIVE THE PLAYERS A CHANCE TO DIG US OUT OF THIS MESS

It's no good banging on about being defensively solid, and putting out teams for a boring 0-0. We need wins now, and at least 6 of them. After the next 3 home games we have very tough fixtures. You have to give the players a chance to put the wins on the board. That means classy attacking players like Remy can't be brought on after 80 mins and be expected to rescue us. We must have enough attacking personnel on the pitch from the start. We need to go at teams from the start. If we go a goal down early, at least we have time, and the players on the pitch, to equalise and then push on for the winner. We have better players than we had even under Pardew. Pretty much the entire squad will be fit for Boro. No excuses. At least try to give us a fighting chance. Have no regrets.

Secondly, a pledge to the players:

WE WILL BACK YOU ALL THE WAY

The win at Bournemouth was my favourite game for many years, because it evoked memories of the famous Palace spirit. When the chips are down the hardcore supporters will get behind you. We will not let you down. For example I (and I am sure many others) will be at as many away games as possible from now until the end of the season, as well as every home game. We will redouble our efforts. We are at the proverbial cross roads and we will back you to the hilt. We will be with you every step of the way. Firstly because we are some of the best supporters in the country. And secondly because we believe in the talent you have. Wilf, please stop moaning to the referees and getting involved in spats with opposition players. We can all see the injustices happening on a regular basis. Every single game the opposing full back should have been booked in the first ten minutes, and you are turned down for blatant free-kicks by the referee in every game too. But you can't let that put you off your game. You are already a Palace legend. You now have an opportunity to become a club great. To leave a legacy that no-one else will be able to match. You have the talent to do it. To score the goals and produce the assists required. We will be with you. COYP.

Love the sentiment. If the players had half of GF's passion we'd be mid table.

It all comes down to the players and whether they have the stomach for the battle. Some on here think this is the greatest squad we've ever had. I think it could go down as one of our worst if they meekly accept relegation as they currently are. But starting with Boro they have a chance to turn this round. I still believe but we have no more chances - must beat Boro. I believe we can.

All players need to just work hard, do what they did at Bournemouth and constantly close down and press opposition. Someone have a word with Martyn Market son too as it's that prick that tells Sam who's performing best in gk training. We all know it ain't WH

We played the first half of the season not worrying about being solid and trying to outscore the opposition. It didn't work. The only way we can save ourselves now is to get some clean sheets an nick some wins. Especially when we come up against the better teams.

As for not letting the team down as fans, it's a nice idea. Unfortunately though, unless some simply stay away, there is a sizeable number within our support (especially at home) that now turn on the players at the first opportunity. I can't see that changing unless we put some wins on the board. It's sad to say, but the team is going to need to pull itself out of this mess.

The thought had crossed my mind, but surely not?! That said competition for places is fairly fierce... unless you're Jason Puncheon!

Love the sentiment of this thread.

However. I just don't believe that Sam will adopt the kind of tactics that some of us crave. I would like us to take the Liverpool approach to closing down opposition defenders - defending from the front. Instead, Sam seems intent on a strategy that involves compressing the defence and midfield and letting the opposition have 60% of the pitch. Interestingly this is the same as Pardew's philosophy. The reason that I - and many other recent poster - think that this won't work is that our defence just isn't good enough to keep the opposition at bay for 90 minutes.

The players and management haven't responded all season. Sorry to say this but i've never seen a group of players so dis-connected and uninterested in the fans. Only Julian is left who I feel embodies the Palace spirit.
