Managerial Changes

This is going to be quite a tricky job for Vieira, I doubt he can match up to what Hodgson did turning them from a side fighting relegation to a solid mid-table outfit. Because due to their ceiling you'd imagine their limit is about 10th at best and even then there's a lot of competition these days to finish top half. So if he's hovering around 15th or so Palace fans might start getting unhappy especially if the football isn't the best. I can't see Vieira really doing much to enhance his reputation tbh.

That said knowing how we work even doing a remotely competent job might be enough for him to get the Arsenal gig.
Gonna be honest here.

Avoiding relegation would be a success. Suicide mission. All the best, though.

The boards that run these clubs are so insensitive to the fanbase man.

Rafa is also a bit of a d*ck for constantly taking these kind of positions also - it's a sobering realisation that it's just a job to a lot of these people in the game.
Eh it’s all fickle though, if Rafa won them an FA Cup or Europa and got them into the CL or top 4 they’d all love him.

Yeah but he'd have to go ona miraculous run to achieve that. When there's already so much bad blood you're afforded less wiggle room.

Take our Arteta for instance, former player and took over a bad situation he was afforded far more grace period than Mourinho would if he came and did the exact same things.

You don’t even need to use Mourinho we had Emery before that never got cut the slack or excuses Arteta has. The bloggers and journalists couldn’t wait to turn on Emery.

True, but it will be exciting to see him try. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do.
If They do badly, no one will blame him too much because the club he's taken over is a royal mess, and if he does well enough, he'll be hailed as the man with the makings of a great manager.

Can't wait.

CP's fan forum is showing a lot of respect for this signing, and they are enjoying the interest shown by the media

I suppose Vieira is rather a glamorous figure after Roy - the players, those that are left anyway, will be excited, I imagine

will we end up being jealous come Christmas?

Being serious though, hope nothing but the best for Paddy...if I could pick any former player to manager us it would be him.



...was a privilege to watch him as a player.
He truly was special. One of a kind. Still gets to me when people suggests players like Gerrard, Scholes and Lampard were at his level. Only Keane was close.

Tottenham, Everton and Crystal Palace making appointments. See that Wolverhampton Wanderers have appointed Portuguese Coach Bruno Large. Seems to have gone under the radar. 🇵🇹🟧⬛

Love Vieira obviously, but Palace is the hardest job in the league ffs. He’s in a war straight away there. Will do well to survive a season I think.

Chris Hughton gone, had to be done unfortunately. They're too good to be bottom of the league. Looks like Chris Wilder is the favourite to replace him.

Thought Hughton would do well there when he got appointed. Nobody seems to be able to get any sort of progress with them. Think Billy Davies years ago was the last time they where in the play-offs. It's about time they were back in the PL.

They were in a play-off place on the final day of 19/20 and bottled it, then they signed 17 players that summer. Terribly managed club that should be doing a lot better with the squad they have.
