    Probably wanted us to bend over backwards for Mendes and sign his castoffs which we said no to.

    Sadly means we'll likely approach Howe now.

    If we go from Nuno to Steve Cooper - :enditall

    I'd 100% take Howe over him.

    Yes and he had quite a lot of staff at Wolves which maybe you didn’t want to have if there are existing members of back room staff staying on .

    Surely its not a case of him actually wanting more at Palace but that another club has bent his ear and he's put in some ludicrous demands so that he can walk away before signing. Expect him to rock up at Everton soon...

    Sticking point over his backroom staff apparently. Looks like we only wanted him and a couple of his coaches and to keep the rest of the ones we have at the club for continuity, but Nuno wanted them all to come in.



    Wouldn't be at all surprised to see him rock up at Everton as you say.

    Being honest in a world where we can pay Sakho £120,000 a week to sit on his arse injured and take holidays to Dubai it's annoyed me that we can't pay extra funds for the coaches that run the team. We've over £350,000 off our wage bill due to contracts expiring so why not spend a little extra on the coaches?

    Palace have made a mistake if they've not allowed him to bring his backroom staff in - they were awesome. There is a big article on the athletic about their roles - their focus on recovery etc - in the 2 seasons before this season we had hardly any injuries to key players - they also implemented a completely new style in one pre season and converted Coady from a CM to CB in the same time frame.

    Yeah I think Palace have made a mistake here, I can see them appointing Cooper or Lampard now and regressing

    Sounds like he was a bit of a c*nt with his demands etc.

    Seems like the clubs made the right decision to me. :shrug

    Sounds like Palace want a cheap option rather than the best fit.

    Yeah, Palace have missed an opportunity there to maybe start sitting in the top half.

    That's fair enough, but imagine there is always going to be a push and pull. Perhaps Nuno felt certain assurances needed to be made to feel like he'd have the best chance to move the club forward.

    Very disappointing it's ended like this but I think I will trust Parish with this. If the man wasn't committing enough and kept on changing his demands then no point wasting our time. As good as he is, we need someone who'll be passionate in building a project here

    if he gets the Swansea mutant though he can **** off

    Am I missing something with Steve Cooper ? How come you all seem to detest him ?:laugh:

    Sounds like a good call from Parish to move on from NES

    Cooper disliked because he's looks a bit weird when they've just had an old owl man in charge is very odd.

    I'm not suprised this has gone tits up. Didn't feel a good fit really. Just don't think the Parasite Mendes situation would have worked, he would not have had any influence over the club like he had at Wolves. Don't think Nuno would have the commitment required. I think he thinks he should be taking over at the North London Whites or similar. I trust SP on this one!

    Zero PL experience and looks like a regurgitated gargoyle.

    Quite simple TBH.
