VIDEO: Watch All Four Of Palace’s Goals Against Swansea From Yesterday

0 Posted by - November 27, 2016 - News, Video

If you couldn’t face watching Match Of The Day after yesterday’s collapse (don’t worry, I couldn’t either) the link below shows all four of Palace’s goals in one quick video. 

This link shows all four of the goals Palace managed to score at The Liberty Stadium. Forget the five we let in, eh?

Ever since his arrival in SE25, Alan Pardew has been keen to preach about the importance of scoring goals freely, admitting on more than one occasion that “clean sheets have never been on his priorities” as a manager. This season has seen that philosophy working at full speed, but with the defence looking as shambolic as I can ever remember, our long-term place in the Premier League now looks to be under serious threat. 

Whilst we’ve managed to bag ourselves a mightily impressive 21 goals so far this term, the fifth most of any Premier League side and the highest tally outside of the Champions League places, the 26 we’ve conceded is the second most of any top flight outfit, only bettered (or worsened depending on your perspective) by Hull City. With an average of two goals finding their way into the Palace net every week, it’s unsurprising to see the general tide of opinion turning so dramatically on Pardew. 

After genuinely spirited displays against Manchester City and Liverpool in recent weeks, I and many others were prepared to see how we got on in Wales yesterday before calling for the manager’s head but after seeing us concede five times to the league’s worst team, twice throwing away a lead in the process, his time is up for me. 

Our potency in the final third is there for all to see in the video above, now we need a man who is both willing and capable of improving our defensive play.

Enjoy.

    I like Pardew, I like his philosophy towards attacking football, but I prefer being a premier league team and so will our US investors, so along with you I was prepared to look yesterday for a more structured defensive arrangement. It just wasn’t there, so I agree that now he has to go. The big problem is who to bring in. Chris Coleman would be my first choice but not sure he would leave Wales. I don’t want big Sam as I am not keen on his approach to football however he would be the safe pair of hands to go to.

    Perhaps you can run a piece on who you think the options would be.

      Roberto Mancini is out of work…

      In all seriousness, I do have a piece lined up but putting it up whilst AP is still in his post would get a hugely negative reaction.

    I think whatever the board is going to do they need to do it quickly, weather that’s sticking by pardew or getting someone new in. It’s not long until the January transfer window, it wouldn’t be fair to get someone else in at the last minute and not have time to assess the team, even though we all know where we need to buy. Saying that the players need to start taking responsibility, these are professional players that have gone from a top 8 defensive side in the league to one of the worst. If pardew was to go, what about giving Keith millen a go, he stabilised the team both times when Holloway and warnock was sacked. Who’s says we need a big name manager, just look what Eddie Howe has done at Bournemouth and not many people had heard of him before they got to the premiership.
