Frank de Goer: Twitter Reacts to the Dutchman's Crystal Palace Sacking After Only Four Matches
Mondays are usually pretty awful, but Frank de Boer's may have just topped the lot. After only four matches in charge of Crystal Palace, the Dutchman, who was brought into the club as a 'statement of intent' from the board has been shown the exit door - and what's worse is that he's expected to be replaced by Roy Hodgson.
That statement now reads along the lines of 'this club is happy to remain as a bottom half Premier League side that consistently flirts with the idea of relegation and doesn't want to do anything about it'.
Like attempting to pull off a top-knot, only to be ripped apart by your mates and resort back to the safety of the short back and sides. Nothing screams short back and sides more than Roy Hodgson.
Anyway, here's how Twitter reacted to de Boer's sacking:
Not sure what's more ridiculous. Sacking De Boer after 4 games or giving the job to Hodgson.— James Pearce (@JamesPearceEcho) September 11, 2017
Crystal Palace hire Frank de Boer because they "need an evolution over a period of time."— Melissa Reddy (@MelissaReddy_) September 11, 2017
Crystal Palace fire Frank de Boer after four games
Frank De Boer sacked by Crystal Palace. Abysmal decision just 4 games into the season. Hope the club gets relegated to be honest.— Adam Joseph (@AdamJosephSport) September 11, 2017
Frank De Boer to Roy Hodgson— soph (@moraticmadness) September 11, 2017
Frank De Boer lasted 85 days at Inter Milan. 77 days at Crystal Palace. But he's Dutch so he must be good.— John Cross (@johncrossmirror) September 11, 2017
Oh, and just to finish on a truly awful note; here are the two worst puns to ever be created - from 90min's very own, Chris Deeley and Scott Saunders:
