Under-pressure De Boer positive about Palace future

Under-pressure De Boer positive about Palace future”

De Boer has endured a awful start to life at Crystal Palace following three consecutive losses, which has already led to speculation regarding his job security at the club.

De Boer remained confident on the backing from the boardroom, having been chosen as the man to take the Selhurst Park club forward following Sam Allardyce's unexpected departure at the end of last season.

"I spoke to Steve [Parish, chairman] and we know what we're going to do", said De Boer. "(The future) is for other people to decide but while I'm the manager of Crystal Palace I will give 100%", he told reporters.

Palace finished 14th in the Premier League last season, but defeats to Huddersfield Town, Liverpool, Swansea City and Burnley have left supporters angry that further signings were not made.

Chris Wood's early goal for Burnley, which came courtesy of a horrendous error by Lee Chung-yong, turned up the pressure on De Boer, who has overseen the club's worst start to a season since 1925. "I am not disappointed about how we played". As well as Lee's horrendous mistake, profligacy in front of goal cost them here.

Frank de Boer has defended his start to life at Crystal Palace saying he "can't do any more" despite watching his team lose for the fourth straight game.

Considering its range, the Hwasong-14 missiles could potentially reach the continental U.S. "I agree with the president". This could risk triggering a military retaliation from the United States if something goes wrong.

De Boer's afternoon at Turf Moor was bookended by displays of schadenfreude, taunts that he would be "sacked in the morning" following both Burnley's third-minute victor and the final whistle.

Christian Benteke then headed just wide from a cross from the risky Andros Townsend before James McArthur nodded another effort past a post from a sixth corner inside the opening 23 minutes.

De Boer could face the sack this week but the former Inter Milan and Ajax coach insisted his sole focus remains getting his side to build on an improved display. "Everybody says you play 3-4-3 but if you see the players I put into our squad, our wing-backs were defenders, so normally you can say I play 5-2-3".

"There was only one team deserving to win today and it was us".

'We did not give much away, controlled the game and you have to reward yourself by scoring goals. Overseeing three defeats from three games, De Boer's possession based philosophy has come under fire from critics and fans alike. Yet given that the board seem to have already abandoned their desire for a new style of play, perhaps they would have been better off appointing Dyche in the summer instead.
