Power To The Players?

I've been plain about my disgust at FdB's sacking and initially blamed it on a cowardly and premature abandonment of the very footballing principles De Boer was supposed to be here for. Some here may completely disagree with that viewpoint and fair play to them for that is not the point of this thread.

Yet the more I read about it, the more it looks as if certain players, in particular some deemed surplus to requirement, have banded together to oust the manager.

Whether people here are glad at the resultant firing of FdB or not, it leads to a question that I don't recall being an issue at our club too often in our past; is it ever right that players have a form of veto power over their boss? Should a chairman back his appointee to the hilt when it is morally justified but against a tide of player discontent? Should a club force players to accept their boss, like most of us mere mortals must Mon-Fri, week-in, week-out? If a player contracts to play for a club, should that automatically mean said player should accept the management that club emplaces above him? Is it time for chairmen to make an example of dissident players rather than wield the axe on their behalf?

Discuss.

I didn't want de Boer, and I am not heartbroken to see him gone, but if there's any truth in the multiple reports of player 'power', than it's a disgrace and those players need to be cleared out as soon as possible.

Well they were right to lobby for Holloway and Pardew's sacking to be fair. Maybe they were right about this one too. The only thing that is concerning is that it sounds like it could be the likes of Delaney, CYL and Martin Kelly getting invovled, none of whom should be anywhere near the first team. Reserve teams the land over are filled with players with grudges against the management, quite why their whims are being pandered to here i don't know.

Apparently Delaney appears to be the spokesman. Might be bullsh*t, might not.
But I have to say (having praised the bloke on here, quite often) if true, I hope
he never kicks a ball for Palace, again.

Didn't Lee have a public moan about Pardew at the end if the 15/16 season ? I think we all thought that would end his (very undistinguished) Palace career. Unfortunately, like a bad smell, he is still here.

But he's a hero so that's ok. Delaney isn't so he's a snake who shouldn't kick a ball again.

The fickleness of the BBS knows no bounds.

Was that video really while De Boer was in charge?!?! Lol if it was. Clearly players took issue with 3 4 3 then.

As for Delaney i wondered how long it would take before he got blamed. People need to watch Holloway on that sunday sky sports show talking about losing the dressing room. He said at Palace when the chips were down a few players werent trying for him he then gave example who gave their all in training and on the pitch every week and included Delaney in the example (along with Jedi and Speroni i think). Yet according to a few it was him who got him sacked....

Posted by Wilf last Thursday. In fairness it worked we went 4-3-3 against Burnley apparently against de Boer's wishes if media are to be believed.

The problem is that the role of football manager is seen to be one that should be carried out in an autocratic fashion.

If we are telling the players to simply shut up and do as they are told and we also expect the chairman to butt out of footballing matters how does anyone nip in the bud the things that are starting to go wrong?

I'm pretty sure most clubs work on the basis that players have an input along with all of the coaching staff and the manager then takes the decisions and ultimately responsibility.I'd be shocked if there's too many who still work autocratically.I think the issue being discussed here is not so much the players having an input but their deliberate attempts to push someone out of a job.It makes you question whether Lee did what he did on Sunday deliberately and whether he,along with others,have been giving everything to get us results.That shouldn't really be a question.

Why. Because he did. It's called a sitter and he missed it, as per sitters that are missed week in week out.

I know this, but the point is , if the players feel their input to the manager is being ignored are we then saying they should shut up and not go and speak to someone else like the chairman to express their views?

Surely if they do speak to the chairman, surely he/she can then make a decision as to whether the player(s) concerns are out of self interest or are valid and then act accordingly.

As has been said many times before, this is the most unlikeable set of Palace players i've known. Apart from Julian of course.

It all depends on how this came about. If SP, Mark Bright or someone at the club approached a few players and asked how things were going then I don't think there's anything wrong with a player giving an honest opinion.
