Under-fire De Boer on the brink at Palace

From Fulham heroics to England embarrassment- The highs and lows of Roy Hodgson's managerial career

Palace have now lost their opening four games of the season and are still to score a goal under De Boer, who insists he will continue to give "100 percent" to try and lift his side out of the mire. Crystal Palace have lost eight of their last nine games in the top flight extending back into last season.

The fact that these talks about De Boer's future only seems to stress how ridiculous modern football truly has become, managers do not have the opportunity anymore to implement their own brand of football or to bring in their own players over a sustained period of time.

Crystal Palace Chairman Steve Parish had been defensive of his carefully selected manager, regularly tweeted his support of the Dutchman and the team.

It's his second goal in as many English Premier League games for Wood. "We are still with the project and we know where we come from and what we want to achieve".

And then, pushing the point home: "I feel he could be shorter at Crystal Palace than at Inter".

Parish also wrote: "We are 4 games in, it's a awful start but we have to stick together". It is football, and sometimes you don't get what you deserve.

"Ninety per cent of fans wanted Sakho, which was always going to limit what we could do".

"We showed spirit", De Boer said.

Only two players arrived at Selhurst Park during the transfer window - Jairo Riedewald from Ajax and Mamadou Sakho from Liverpool.

"Although the margin of the defeat is small, I'm really disappointed with our performance", Swans manager Paul Clement said. I'm thinking that I have influence in what I can do with the squad, what I can do on the training ground with all the people around and that's where I put my energy.

There is a desire from members of the Palace hierarchy for Allardyce to make a return to the club he surprisingly left at the end of last season after successfully leading the club to Premier League safety during his six month stint in south London.

"The message is just to try to do your best", De Boer says.

De Boer said he took heart from his side's performance at Turf Moor, which saw them have 65% of possession and produce 23 efforts at goal to their opponents' four.
