The Manifestation of Moribund
- Apr 5, 2014
I never understood the Viera sacking. They were on the back of a horrific run of fixtures and entering into much easier times. I think Potter had a run as bad and Albion stuck with him. Yes, things improved under Hodgson, but I'm sure Palace would have been okay anyway. Prior to that run they were sitting comfortably in 11th. Just two points behind us.Plus the fact he never started Eze, he used to bring him on with 10 to go.
Most palace fans wanted Viera to do well and were sorry it didn’t work out, but there really was no go in the team , 4 games without a shot on target….Roy’s first game we had something like24 in the first half. In that run of 12 we lost to Nottingham Forest , Villa , Fulham and a woeful Chelsea side.
I would think if you can see progress you stay with the project. You might not like him but Parish is a very successful business man and wouldn’t be making too many quick fire off the cuff decisions without looking into what is actually happening.
