We have our own problems at Newcastle with "Fat Boy" Ashley, but it seems the average intelligence of a club owner doesn't reach that of a flea.
Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish urged everyone at the club to "stick together" despite the team's poor start to the Premier League season and four hours later sacked manager Frank de Boer.
The Dutchman saw four defeats in as many games without scoring a goal since he took over at Selhurst Park in the summer, the worst start in Premier League history,.
In an exchange with supporters on social media following Sunday's 1-0 defeat at Burnley, Parish wrote: "People are frustrated, I'm frustrated, so are the management and players. We know we are better than this..."
Parish also wrote: "We are 4 games in, it's a terrible start but we have to stick together."
