I take my hat off to Roy who at 71 is still physically and mentally able and willing to cope with the pressures of a Premier League Manager. Its at times one of the more uncomfortable jobs around with enormous pressure and stress where your future is so reliant upon a bunch of individuals responding and delivering every week. That lack of control is stressful in its own right. But he doesn't just cope with that, he does it with integrity, dignity and takes accountability. A real leader who at a time when leadership has become old fashioned continues to do the right things because they are the right things to do, not because it lines his pocket or enhances his ego. He really has very quickly become one of my favourite all time Palace managers and I remember them all since Arthur Rowe. I hope he still wants to do this at 80.

OK gushing a bit I know but you have to love the guy.
Bang on. He has a passion for the game and for Palace. I'm optimistic about the season ahead.

Well, we have done it before, only 2 years ago. Unfortunately that was when Pardew should have been sacked 6 months previously

When is the last time we've had the same manager for an entire season? Dougie Freedman in 2011-12?
