    In what way is a record points total relevant ? Points totals are not indicative of success, league positions are.

    I don't really agree with that - perhaps at times during the first season, whilst every team is going to have the odd game or two where you look blunt and ineffective - which is what a lot of AVBs tenure was like. The biggest difference is that under Poch we've had a huge percentage of games in which we've seen thrilling football, you an't really say the same about AVB.

    I think both coaches basic strategies and approaches are pretty similar. And if you you put exciting quality players in their teams, they can reward the good organisation and team ethos that both managers try to instill.

    There's been a vast majority of games under Poch where we plod around through midfield with no tempo with players like Dier, Dembele or Wanyama and bumble around up top a fair bit too but talented forwards (Kane/Alli/Eriksen/Son) make explosive things happen.

    It was the same under AVB but with shitter players (Eriksen and Lamela had just arrived in England too so we're nowhere near up to their best) and one explosive forward producing the goods.

    I don't know why people keep ignoring the evidence of AVB's Porto, where he had quality players and his team produced some great football, like Poch, defensively the best in the league but also one of the highest scoring too, and he added enormous value to many of his players.

    It might work, as in it might keep them up, but throwing the job at a manager who's been out of the PL for five years is always risky. Especially a 70 year old who has been a laughing stock since the Euros.

    So, to summarise:

    Poch >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Redknapp >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> AVB

    I know that's not what you said. But that's the correct answer.

    You're welcome.

    Exactly, I can't see how any player would be inspired by his appointment. He looked devoid of ideas and passion at the shambles that were the Euros. As a fan you'd be livid, well I would be

    It's a disastrous appointment for them. He is completely wrecked and spent as a manager. His final days as England manager were shockingly clueless. I'd be very surprised if they stayed up. I'd be mildly surprised if they won a single game, tbh.

    Palace fans can look forward to Benteke taking the corners. :playful:

    Haven't scored this season, so they appoint Hodgson? :confused:

    At least if they got Pardew back then you're guaranteed a decent run, albeit followed by a lengthy dodgy run.

    LOL apparently the Palace players were complaining that de Boer was showing them up in training. A piece I read said that on one occasion he took the ball out of the air with one touch, swiveled and then put it in the top corner with his next and it was though to be 'arrogant.'

    Sounds like the Glenn Hoddle management dilemma i.e. what to do when your still a better player than your players! Was Glenn accused of showing up Beckham on the training ground when he was England manager?

    De Boer was never a good fit at Palace. They expected him to instantly convert their playing style into something sexy and he was never going to be given time to do it. In this respect I admire Burnley who know where they stand in the pecking order. They know they are a yo yo club and accept it. They've stuck with Shaun Dyche because they know he's a good fit for what they can expect.

    If that was the issue, then they've now got the right man in Roy Hodgeson. No chance of him doing that... ;)

    Plus we had sherwood running to his mate Ashton at the Mail who was giving him shit in the papers for a couple of weeks beforehand because sherwood was trying to undermine AVB to get the manager job

    Maybe Palace's American owners are planning on turning Hodgson into WoboWoy...

    Ashton is such a ****. Makes sense that he's mates with Captain Bellend then.
