What is the squad looking like in terms of renewals and the contract situations? Who is staying?The club found out Roy was off in February, this feels like a panic appointment to me having exhausted all other options. Really, really disappointed...but will back him as I do every Manager.
Here is a list that I found of black/mixed-race Premier League mangers:
Yeah, Gullit at Chelsea is my first memory of a black PL manager. When was that? 96?Ruud Gullit was the first, still not great that Vieira just about leaves you out of fingers to count on after 30 years, if you include caretakers.
Yeah, it's weird. @JPRouve even pointed out that Vieira did quite alright at Nice, but it seems people are simply ignoring that. I wonder what they think Palace needs instead. Sounds like only a defensive old-school guy could do the job in many people's eyes.Don’t know much about him as a manager, but I see the oracles of RedCafe have all decided already that he’s going to be terrible
If they are looking for a defensive guy, I seem to remember that Nice were defensive and absolutely dull. He did better than Favre's last season but it wasn't pretty.
Ha - then now I'm really curious what everyone who's thinking that he'll sink Palace assume he's missing, and who they'd suggest instead!If they are looking for a defensive guy, I seem to remember that Nice were defensive and absolutely dull.

It’s very hard for people to say “I have no idea”. Must have an opinion on every topic.
Thanks for this. Would it be fair to say he was similar to Deschamps in this respect?Conservative, defense first. To be honest I didn't like it at all and tried to avoid watching them as much as possible. He seemed to like 3 man defenses but eventually settled with a defensive 433.
