BTW, I really cannot stand that "rent free" expression that is loosely banded around all over the shop online. Its an instant facepalm for me whenever I see it.
One might say the term is living rent free in your head.

I wouldn't. But one might.

Fearful of this if they stay up. I don't think he'll transform them into a brilliant team that qualify for Europe overnight, but unlike Viera or De Boer it's the sort of appointment that implies there will be time and space for Palace to sort out their style in the same way that we did with Potter. And I think that it's got to a point down there that the fans would love that.

I'd much rather have them sack Roy today, get in someone to "keep them up" like Parker or Lampard (lol) and repeat their dreadful seasonal managerial change until it all falls apart and they drop out of the league.

Even if the new stand looks nice, it’ll be basically like attaching a beautiful modern annex onto a crumbling shitheap which is the other three quarters of a stadium.

Superfluous use of the word 'like'.

However, what we have done is properly shown them UP by playing a brand of progressive football they can only dream of

Tony Pulis was on Talksport with Simon Jordan and the nauseating Jim White, and Pulis said football was a fast moving game and he couldn't stand when the keeper and centre-back have the most passes, claiming it was dull to watch.

So it seems some dinosaurs think hoofing it from defender to big guy up front is more entertaining than our football.

McKenna is a sensible guy. Loyal to his task in hand. I think it will be quite an achievement to get Ipswich promoted due to the strong Championship this season, but he’s going to give it a good go.
So let’s say that he doesn’t quite get there with Ipswich. Will it put other clubs off him? Doubt it as he’s very well thought of.

So let’s say Palace stay up. Would he consider a move there? Probably.
However, it may not be the only available opportunity in the Premier League.
West Ham may be looking at him but it’s also not inconceivable that we could be looking for a new manager.
Would we, West Ham or Palace look the best opportunity for someone like McKenna?
Ultimately the club structure has a very important role in providing a base for a manger to be successful. Probably why Palace are struggling to replace Roy.

I still don’t see them going down, they’re lucky two of the slots already look booked and paid for by Sheffield United and Burnley and several teams are likely to get points deducted.

They’ll stay up by default. Sadly.

Is it a 'strong championship' this season?

The three awful sides that were relegated from last season's PL, are the current top three.

Leicester, minus Maddison, Barnes and Tielemans are walking the division.

Southampton, minus Ward-Prowse, Lavia and Bella-Kotchap are second, having won something like TWENTY games in a row.

McKenna has done a fabulous job to keep Ipswich up there with the top three, but a 'strong' league, it is absolutely not.

Our style of football =/= all passing football.

There are definitely possession based styles that are dull as dishwater. Potterball for example was incredibly boring to watch a lot of the time.

There’s also definitely something that can be said for getting the ball forward and getting it in to the box. I’d rather play the way we do than almost anything else but your post seems to boil down to passing = exciting which is pretty oversimplified

Sure, but Pulis didn't say that, he specifically picked out when the keeper or central defender had the most touches/passes, and Dunk usually does.

My post is intended to say that I like our style of football, and Pulis said that styles where the central defender touches the ball the most is dull.

Okay then.

I think you're right, unfortunately. Just one spot left to avoid and Everton, Luton and Forest are on 19, 20, and 21 points respectively. Whilst a bottom-of-the-table team will often dig in and grind out points at the business end of the season, chances ae that at least one of them will have a stinker over the next 14 matches and finish in the low 30s, and I can't see Palace not picking up the 9-10 points that'll be needed.

On the other hand, we probably already have enough points for an 8th season!

Most passes in the PL = Rodri, and 2nd most is Lewis Dunk. Van Hecke comes in at 8th. Pulis didn't criticise passing football, but he did criticise when it involved the keeper and central defenders, which we do do.

Compared to last season when Burnley ran away with it, I’d say it is.

I remember when Wolves did that in the 80s and it crippled the club so badly they ended up going from division 1 to division 4 in 3 years.

Fingers crossed eh?
