Crystal Palace: Fans react to new Sean Dyche contract

Crystal Palace: Fans react to new Sean Dyche contract -Crystal Palace

Burnley manager Sean Dyche, who was linked with a move to Crystal Palace in the summer, penned a new four-year deal at Turf Moor on Thursday.

And, as to be expected following continued links to Selhurst Park, a number of Eagles supporters were quick to react to the news on social media.

Steve Parish was on the search for Roy Hodgson’s successor over the summer and placed Dyche on a list of possible Palace candidates.

Would Dyche have been a better fit at Palace over Vieira?

Yes, definitely!

Yes, definitely!

No, Parish got it spot on!

Dyche admitted he was ‘flattered’ regarding the interest, with Palace approaching the Clarets over the 50-year-old’s services at the end of May.

The Eagles were told it would cost £3m in compensation for Dyche, and as we now know, decided to bring in Patrick Vieira instead.

Vieira chalked up his first Premier League win for Palace over Tottenham last weekend, with the Eagles currently sitting above Burnley in the table.

He even waited to see if Vieira would do a de Boer and we came calling before signing the deal. Maybe one day, Sean.
