Today’s round-up sees the fallout to Tuesday night’s game at The Amex Stadium continuing with a superbly put together deconstruction of Brighton’s official statement on the events that occurred outside the away end. Whilst blame is rightly being put at the feet of a small group of Palace fans, our hosts don’t deserve to get away scot-free, as Jesse Boyce highlights below.
Predictably, Alan Pardew has been discussing his sacking at Crystal Palace after being unveiled as West Brom’s new boss. Incredibly, he seems to feel that he was deserving of more time in the role despite amassing the worst record of any English league side in 2016. No one could ever accuse “Pards” of lacking confidence.
One man who clearly believes Alan isn’t deserving of a job at The Hawthorns is Andros Townsend’s father Troy, who has taken a very public swipe at the ex-Eagles gaffer on Twitter. Football in 2017 eh? It’s full of drama.
Finally, we have reaction to the news that Sam Allardyce is taking over from David Unsworth as Everton boss, with Palace set to receive £2 million of compensation as a direct consequence. I could throw my toys out of them pram about another manager leaving us and turfing up elsewhere incredibly soon after but quite frankly, we’ve got bigger fish to fry as a club at this moment in time.
Having read official statements from both Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace in the aftermath of Tuesday night’s game at The Amex Stadium, it seems only right that we would also draw attention to the first-hand account of a fan who saw it all unfold in real time.
Former Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew is back in management at West Bromwich Albion and has already set about spinning the story surrounding his sacking in SE25 as anyone’s fault but his own.
The appointment of Alan Pardew as West Brom boss has set tongues wagging across the game, with Andros Townsend’s father all too happy to wade in on the debate over whether the former Palace gaffer deserves another shot in the Premier League.
Just a few months after Sam Allardyce “retired” from club management he’s back in the thick of things, having held positive talks with Farhad Moshiri and Bill Kenwright and agreeing to take charge of an Everton side who have been struggling hugely in the opening stages of the 2017-18 campaign.
