De Boer Rips Into Palace After “Ridiculous” Early Sacking

1 Posted by - October 8, 2017 - News

It’s taken a few weeks but Frank de Boer’s brother Ronald has finally given his views on the Dutchman’s sacking by Crystal Palace and he certainly hasn’t held back.


Having taken over during the summer, the former Ajax coach had overseen just four Premier League fixtures when the Palace board decided to give him the boot, a decision which now, after another three games without a single point or goal to our names, could easily be looked upon as a tad foolish

The comments given by Ronald really are direct, pulling no punches when describing the decisions made by Steve Parish and co. as “ridiculous”. Given the shift in style Frank was attempting to implement, the quick-fire manner of his dismissal has drawn hoots of derision from across the game, with Ronald himself happily leading the charge as part of the sporting media.

Admittedly, our performances against Huddersfield and Swansea at Selhurst Park were utterly dreadful but when travelling to both Liverpool and Burnley, there were signs of genuine progress being made tactically. Indeed, the latter of those two fixtures saw us play the Clarets off the park, only to fall to an underserved 1-0 defeat as a consequence of an inexplicable error from Lee Chung-Yong.

In the weeks following his departure we have continued to struggle, with the arrival of Roy Hodgson once again spinning the tactical dial for a group of players who have now three permanent managers since they last scored a Premier League goal. The “back to basics” approach of the former England boss may well click once the daunting prospect of a home tie against Chelsea has been and gone but it’s impossible to escape the sense of embarrassment following the club in the fallout to the failed experiment with De Boer.

If you thought he and his brother were intent on maintaining a good relationship with the Palace top brass, think again.

    De Boer should not have been sacked ! We are a laughing stock !! Even Brighton at this stage can quite rightly laugh in our direction !!!! The Board have so much to answer for, you would have thought getting caught out last year with the centre back and left back positions would have taught them something !!!! And now we have a dinosaur in charge trying to change the way we play again ! What exactly would we have lost by giving De Boer another five or six games. Despite what was said on here many times its clear the players had no problem with De Boar

      It’s such a strange situation Sharpy. Where in the past it’s felt as though the board and fans are firmly on the same page, this whole saga has baffled me from start to finish.

    De Boer shouldn’t have been given the job in the first place
    Ward in a three
    Luka in a three
    Townsend wingback then dropped for first game
    Punch starting every game
    Chung put on pitch in front of cabaye
    Zaha left
    He’s attitude with the players
    His lack of prem knowledge
    It’s de boring talking about this guy Dutch football is Scottish football itsNOT the prem league and never will be because of the lack of quality of 90 percent of the teams you can make many mistakes in the prem league one mistake is a goal
    If you can’t see it your hopeless he was totally and utterly out of his depth
    So now we move on
    At least why will drop players who are playing bad ie punch
    At least we are playing to our strengths counter
    And at least we are 433
    And when Mensa zaha benteke loftus Tompkins are back we will pick up points as he is trying to follow the same pattern as Sam which worked
    Being negative already is quite pathetic and if you look on some of the better cpfc forums out there most would disagree with you

      The mistake the board made was to appoint FdB in the first place. You only had to see the team selection against Huddersfield to know he hadn’t got a clue. He had to go; and now we have a chance – all be it a slim one – of survival.

    Also it was expertly demon started on motd that actually he was setting up 343 incorrectly with the first Hennessey pass to the back 3 first game of season; they sighted about 12 incorrect things. De Boer is arrogant and a bully and didn’t actually know how to fix total football when broken like inter not as much as an expert as he thinks certainly not a coach
    Next time cpfc the CLUB decides how they will play take into account player type funds and a suitable experienced manager

    you idiots won’t get that you all talk shit
    I’m off to a forum where it’s ran by adults and one which I know for a fact the board sometimes read as issues are approached from a positive perspective by real fans with a real invite who understand the dynamics of our club and more importantly understand football you dickhead

    Jesus of Montreal, I bet Alan Pardew cries himself to sleep knowing you think he is “pants”.

    Also, I got my money’s worth this month having your incoherent tosh brought to my attention. We must have all missed where you were forced to read this rather than proving yourself the real idiot. Probably best for everyone if you make like a tree and fuck off

    Personally I think he’s got a point why is everyone going on about de Boer still ? He’s gone who cares , as for slating Roy when we have several out still that’s just daft and funnily enough I agree with his views on how de Boer started messing around with the squad , first time I’ve been to this site I won’t be back it seems out of touch and a bit ignorant, I will make like a tree myself I think ed

    • admin October 8, 2017 - 5:21 pm Reply

      Literally no one has slated Roy…

      I’m unsure where you’ve got that from. Unless you are in fact the same man under a different username?

      • Englandno1 October 8, 2017 - 5:31 pm Reply

        Literally ? Roy a dinosaur according to sharpy,
        I don’t think that’s fair , if he messes it up when all players are back more then fair
