Andros Townsend sends message to Crystal Palace fans on Twitter

Andros Townsend sends message to Crystal Palace fans on Twitter

Frank de Boer's former agent admits that the Dutchman could have left for bigger clubs in the Premier League at the height of his success at Ajax.

The winger seemed frustrated by Palace's defeat, and every player in the squad should be feeling the pressure.

"What I want to see more of is that we take more initiative when we have the ball", he says.

The South Korea global had the ball in his own half before he attempted to pass it back to Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey, however, he under-hit it.

Served up with the simplest of chances, the New Zealander reacted clinically by firing past Hennessey first time from the edge of the box, giving his side a dream start.

Surprisingly, Levi Lumeka came on in the 65th minute for Lee who had massively under-performed. Palace desperately need the points in this one.

De Boer took the helm at Selhurst Park forward following Sam Allardyce's unexpected departure at the end of last season. Considering the awful start Palace have had, the Clarets will feel confident of winning this match.

"I'm really not satisfied with the way we played".

The visitors dominated after the restart, but for all the play they had in Burnley's half there were few clear chances created.

"If asked now, maybe we should have made another decision but that was his choice, and it tells you something about the person".

"I'm focusing on what I can control - I couldn't do much more than this", he said.

Nevertheless, Palace, while showing they are adept at shooting themselves in the foot, remain the only team in England without a league goal.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche said he had some empathy with De Boer and conceded they had deserved more.

"We are not getting sentimental or something like that, no we just continue with what we believe in and that is what we are going to do". And then the referee whistles for the last time and we didn't score and don't have any points right now.

"That gives me a lot of hope for the future".

"When I saw their team I was anxious because I thought that's back to a familiar looking side", Dyche told talkSPORT.

He said: "Everybody is disappointed with our results but we know this is not a one-day project; it's for the long term".

"Football is about scoring goals, no doubt it". A 50-minute impasse in the middle of the game suggested otherwise but he felt a corner was turned.
