Frank de Boer’s tenure as Crystal Palace head-coach has finally come to an end, with the Eagles confirming that they have parted ways with the 47-year-old Dutchman.
De Boer, who spent just 77 days into his reign, is set to be replaced by Roy Hodgson.
De Boer endured a dreadful business in the summer transfer window and despite being able to sign Mamadou Sakho from Liverpool, the Dutchman missed out on a number of targets.
News of sacking sparked a heated response from Palace fans on Twitter, here are some of the trending tweets.

Sad to see De Boer go, excited at first by his appointment but in reality it seems like his appointment was always likely to fail #CPFC

Would it be fair to say that de Boer was a vanity appointment? #cpfc

I'd rather go down with De Boer and rebuild than have Hodgson. This is painful. #cpfc
