6:35 pm
on the 28th of august and the chairman, steve parish, was meant to have left that meeting with no confidence than de boer was the man to ta ke confidence than de boer was the man to take them forward. the reservations about the formation, how the squads were fitting into this new style of play. that was reflected in the dismal results we have seen from crystal palace. the first—team in nearly a hundred years in the top flight to lose their top four games without scoring a single goal. it really does underline how unhappy crystal palace weather and that has led to them taking this decision afterjust four league games. what else is being said today by managers and former players? and a number of press conferences have taken place today ahead of the champions league fixtures. antonio co nte says champions league fixtures. antonio conte says he feels sorry for frank
