Freedman - what experience does DF have in bringing in players to take us to the next level?

Is Dougie just a puppet brought in so Parish can play fantasy football?

You have £25m plus money from player sales, what do you do with 10 days to go?

Had Heno bought himself 6 months as our first choice keeper after Liverpool away?

If Palace only sign one player before the transfer window closes in which position would you like it to be ?

I agree with Kevin. I can sort of the the sense in bringing in a director of football/sporting director but why Dougie Freedman? He has no experience at this level, or in that role. A truly odd signing which will not work out. Not forgetting what he did to us when he left for Bolton. As Kevin said, amongst palace fans he is a devise person.

Does DF have the eye to spot/bring in players to take us to the next level? If we were in the Championship yes. In the PL? I'm not so sure.

So Kevin has no clue what a sporting director does, yet knows what sort of person should do the job (and it's not dougie)? Righto

Good discussion as always.

I can see the frustration with appointing Freedman - he let us down badly and is very lucky to have a second chance at the club. I do think we need a football director-type role at the club so I think it's a good move to appoint one, although I am less certain about Freedman's credentials. I just hope it isn't a sly move in terms of having Freedman as a back up option if it goes tits up with FDB. I am also unsure about the relationship between this new role and Tim Coe's position.

Anyway, it was a good pod - I agree with the panel that there were positives to take away from Liverpool, although I think everyone is under-estimating how limited our forward line is. Unless we sign two forwards I can't see us scoring many goals this season.

Though just listened to the rest of the pod and Kevin said Sakho, if he signed, wouldn't necessarily be first choice. I find this incredible. Sakho is so clearly head and shoulders above any defender we have that it will be a case of building our defence round him. No other defender we have gets near Sakho in terms of his class.

Also, I don't think we should assume that FDB doesn't want him - this may just all be down to the money and a game of brinkmanship with Liverpool.

Not quite pod related but we are doing the Palace For Life Foundation marathon walk as a pod.

We are raising money here but also have some great prizes to give away depending on how much you donate.

To be fair I don't suppose admitting when you're wrong is something you identify with, is it?

Just listening now and the opening rant from Kev was a tad over the top but as it settles down TBH there are a lot of good points/questions. At the end of the day SP can employ whoever he wants. As a fan we just get to puzzle over the logic. This one will take a long time to make sense. If it had been a temporary appointment to do some consultancy I think it would make more sense.

Even if this is a long term objective/decision I think SP would have been better off announcing it as that temp role first rather than a straight appointment out of the blue.

I agree. Comparing Dougie to Venables and Mullery was wildly over dramatic.
