Crystal Palace WTF?

Am I missing something here.

Pardew gets sacked for being rubbish at his job so he gets a (wait for it) £4.8 million (yup, £4.8 million) pay off.

And who's the bookies favourite to take over: Sam Allardice. Yup the guy who was sacked for the England job for being massively corrupt.

I really am missing the point here, aren't I? Please can someone tell me if the lunatics really are running the asylum.

    The compensation is nothing these days. But what is astonishing is why the board of a decent team would employ Allardyce.
    Always be yourself, unless you can be Aaron Rodgers....Then always be Aaron Rodgers.
  • He got the payoff because they gave him a new contract in the summer purely on the back of a decent FA cup run, they were in freefall down the league table for the 2nd half of last season but for some reason the board overlooked that.

    Allardyce likely gets employed because a) Palace aren't a decent team and b) he's very effective at coaching teams at the level they are at.

    I think it's the latter point that I find shocking/surprising.

    It's a bit like employing the Hatton Garden blaggers to look after your safety deposit boxes: you're just going to end up embarrassed when they do something utterly corrupt but it's so obvious they're going to do it.

    What do you actually have to do in football to censored up so badly you can't get another managerial job/job per se (even Chen bloody Evans is playing again ffs.....)

    Crystal who? Wasn't that the place that they used to hold all the big trade fairs in the early 1900s until it burnt down. Or was that the other place?

    I think you'll find Ched Evans was found not guilty at his re-trial.
    He may be a man of low moral standards but he is not a rapist. So why should he not be playing football?

    Right place, wrong year. It was 2011 when they burnt the place down. Again it seems.

    The pay off is ridiculous though. I know it was contractual, but even so.

    Big Sam has never been relegated. I can see that he might improve team spirit there but sooner or later, he's going down. Pardew free to take over at Real Madrid now.

    :lol:

    I think the legal ruling at the time wa stag although the jury found him of guilty of the rape it doesn't actually mean that he didn't do it............

    Pardew will be at Swansea by Feb, just cannot see Bob Bradley lasting much longer. Strange appointment in the first place.

    Re Sam wasn't the reson he was sacked was that he knew how to do the crime and would advise but hadn't actually done it. I may be wrong and usually am.
