Not sure how this has been allowed, we have had a whole pre season and a few games and now all that feels wasted new manager and new team to come in when the season is underway, should be a window for this to happen, taking a manager is one thing but the whole back room staff wtf

ironically we should be able to draw some inspiration from them... they've been through managers like nobody's business and still managed to cling to the PL rock like some piss-filled barnacle...

Lots of promotions coming up at the club. Work for the Director of Football. He should have planned for this!

You have to be in a position to laugh - they are not. And who cares what they think, jealousy is never a nice trait… :thumbsup: Trust in Bloom and the club model - that will never change and we’ll always be a properly ran club, and the envy of many others :thumbsup:

We have to be in a position to laugh? You don’t get this rivalry thing do you sheebo. If you can’t laugh at your rivals misfortune then there’s something very wrong.

Being fair to Palace, I'm not sure that many are in the mood for laughing at the moment, regardless of parochial football rivalries.

Today shows that any club outside the big 6 that has a successful manager is likely to have them poached

Even as an Albion fan, I'll concede that Vieira has done very well for them.

Changed Roy's style of play, successful loans, Cup SF, mid-table safety.

So it's us today, but equally it could well be them soon enough.

I certainly would be the other way round - it would be hilarious!!

It will be interesting seeing how this pans out, the lack of any management and coaching will certainly bring us down to their level

Maybe whoever we've got in mind comes with their own back room team too. The club seem very relaxed about it.

Just another 27 points needed for safety.
Yes but possibly room for internal promotions? Always supposing the Director of Football hasn’t buggered off to Chelsea as well. I hear they need one.

They'll be thinking "There but the grace of God go I."

Today is further proof - if more proof were needed - that the Premier League is a competition for 6 teams with the other 14 there to make up the numbers.

If Leicester get relegated then that's no title / FA Cup / League Cup for the entire 14 other Prem sides FOR 27 YEARS.
