Agreed about Moxey - an important part of the promotion team.

Bolasie must be our best ever transfer in terms of what we paid, what we got out of him and the profit we made when we sold him. Ward has been an ever present in the side since signing, and has played a number of positions. Jedi was a leader and warrior in the middle of the pitch. Same with Damo at the back. Murray scored the goals to get us promoted and played a part in us staying up. Parr, Danny G, KG all important in our promotion.

He did have an eye for a player, no doubt about that. Funnily enough I was thinking only last night that we could do with some Dougie-esque signings at the moment.

Frank is used to working with a DOF, Freedman knows the club and is probably better at finding players than coaching them. Zaha loves Freedman.

Can't see any downsides to this. The man's a legend.

Edit: Just to add to this about inexperience (copied from an old post of mine hence the names):

And the majority of current managers have next to no Prem experience, if any at all.

Eddie Howe - none
Wenger - none but also doesn't really apply
Dyche - previous season with Burnley
Conte - none and won the league
Klopp - none and finished in Champions League spot
Silva - none and relegated
Koeman - none
Karanka - none and sacked
Bob Bradley - none and sacked
Francesco Guidolin - none and sacked
Claude Puel - none and soon to be sacked
Slaven Bilic - none
Walter Mazzarri - none and sacked
Mauricio Pochettino - Southampton previously
Paul Clement - none and kept Swansea up
David Moyes - loads and relegated
Mourinho - loads
Guardiola - none and Champions League spot
Alan Pardew - loads and sacked
Allardyce - loads and stayed up
Mike Phelan - loads of coach experience and sacked

Nothing surprises me with the club anymore. I'm sure Parish has his strategy...

Exactly. And if Parish, who actually knows what went on, is happy to forgive him, then we should too.

FdB is inexperienced as a manager in English football. Not necessarily a problem though...

Inexperienced in the role.

Don't get me wrong.. my posts are negative.. but I really want this to work.. just can't get over SP appointing yet another palace connection rather than looking at an experienced candidate

Interesting appointment but I'm curious as to what exactly he will be doing. This kind of setup has never really worked in England and might be unsettling unless it is clear who does what.

Will Dougie be in charge of transfers? Will he have any input on training or tactics? More questions than answers now

Everyone loved him as a player no doubt. Saved us 3 times as a player, assistant manager and manager.

The season he took over from Burley he played the football needed to get us safe and worked out. The following season was awful to watch even if we did get to a League Cup semi final. Playing Easter over Murray was what summed that season up for me. Then the promotion season after he hadn't learnt from his mistakes in terms of styled of football and then Parish gave him the talk at Bristol City. Only after that we saw a completely different Palace which was more exciting and looked like a team capable of winning the league only for him to ruin his status.

It's fairly obvious that when de Boer leaves Freedman is taking over whatever division. Especially if it's the Championship. I just hope he has learnt from the dreadful style of play he had and the sackings at Bolton & Forest. Freedman knows the club better than most and knows what is needed in terms of players and style of play so I'm happy to move on from the whole Bolton saga. Knows how to pick a good player to sign that's for sure.

Just don't leave the job half done eh Dougie
