After less than three months and only four competitive matches as Crystal Palace manager, Frank De Boer has been removed from his position at the club. Now the shortest Premier League managerial spell of all time, De Boer leaves with the unwanted record of four losses and zero goals in the league during his spell.

However, despite the poor performances, there has been significant outcry from both Palace fans and the general footballing community, with some seeing the decision as far too hasty and another casualty of the results-driven modern football. But did the performances justify the club’s decision?
