De Boer met chairman after losing three and scoring none. Players don't like his tactics it seems so he is on a shaky nail. Probably our game will decide his future if he lasts that long

Talk of Fat Sam coming back has been hit on the head by Sam himself thank goodness.
Sam Allardyce has told talkSPORT he is not interested in a return to management with Crystal Palace or any other Premier League club - right now.

A bid for Sakho may have succeeded. They may sell a few for FFP
Martin Kelly is attracting interest from Burnley

Having watched BFC for over 50 years, it's a nailed-on certainty that when a club or a striker is struggling, against which opponent do they turn their fortunes around? :D

Yes I fear that too. I think deBoer won't win the players back and only worry they dump him before the game.

But We have a good record against them winning 17 drawing 17 and losing 9 in all games or
winning 2 drawing 1 and losing one in the PL.

My big worry about this game is that it's at home. While the pundits, in their usual misinformed way, continue to bang on about our away form, in the real world that's not a problem any more, we've only lost two of our last eight away. At home Fortress Turf Moor has crumbled to dust, and we've only won one of our last eight home games. Palace might have a few problems, but playing at Turf Moor shouldn't be one of them.

It will be interesting to see how we fare against Palace, Huddersfield, Irons, Newcastle & Swansea at the Turf. After that we will have a good idea of where we are heading! :O

I have always viewed Palace as a little fish in a big pond, a bit like Burnley with the Liverpool and Manchester sides very close.

Steve Parish part owner and Chairman of Palace may have a lot of money and earned it well with his business ventures, but being in control of Crystal Palace Football Club he's doing very badly IMO.

Dyche doesnt believe in so called bogey teams/grounds. We had not won at Ipswich for how many years then we won under Dyche, hadnt won at Chelsea in the top flight since........if Burnley are on top of their game, we will win but I think Palace will score at the Turf.

De Boer is safe for now after crisis talks with chairman Steve Parish, and the club are preparing a later transfer spree.

Palace are confident Liverpool will accept a 25m plus add-ons bid for Mamadou Sakho, who excelled on loan at Selhurst Park last season. They are also pursuing Tottenhams Michel Vorm and Vincent Janssen.

Seems like deBoer has to win at the Turf or go. No pressure then!!

Sakho has not played since April and won't be fit for a while.

Interesting piece on de Boer and Palace in the Guardian, blames Palace for the problems.
https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2017/sep/03/crystal-palace-shoulder-blame-frank-de-boer-heritage

Some papers suggest deBoer may be replaced by Dougie Freedman temporarily then Woy permanently.

Independent says de Boer will switch from 3-4-3 to 4-3-3 against Burnley in a bid to save his job, but lack of a back up striker to Benteke with Wickham still injured may cost him the job. Players find him cold.
Hints that he may not even make Sunday before going.

Latest news
Crystal Palace will be without Wilfried Zaha, who is still recovering from a knee injury suffered in the 3-0 defeat to Huddersfield on the opening day. Yohan Cabaye is expected to be in contention after coming on against Swansea and Ruben Loftus-Cheek could return.

Deadline day signing Mamadou Sakho is injured and James Tomkins is unavailable.

Study says Sakho was bought for five times his estimated value. :O

Using a transfer value algorithm that took into account various statistics, including age, goals and points won by the team, to calculate a value for a player, the study concluded that Sakho was in fact worth around 4.8m

That means, according to CIES, Palace overpaid by around 21m, which is the fourth highest overpaying for a player this summer of any deal. Only Everton (Sigurdsson 25.2m and Pickford 27.5m) and Manchester City (Mendy 29m) overpaid more.

Thanks Colner.

Spoke with a Palace workmate today, not a plastic as he's followed them for decades and even visited the Turf a few time's, he wants us to hammer Palace on Sunday so DeBoer definitely gets shown the door.

Good to see we got the best of the Wood Gray swap :) getting more for Andre and paying lots less for Woods than his "value"
Sounds like he may have gone before the game!
My only concern of dB going is that Sean is second favourite to Woy!
