It comes as rumours circulate that Frank de Boer’s time at Selhurst Park could be cut short as the Eagles have not gained a point in four games let alone score a goal.

About Andros
Andros (Greek: Άνδρος) is the northernmost island of the Greek Cyclades archipelago, about 10 km (6 mi) southeast of Euboea, and about 3 km (2 mi) north of Tinos. It is nearly 40 km (25 mi) long, and its greatest breadth is 16 km (10 mi). It is for the most part mountainous, with many fruitful and well-watered valleys. The municipality, which includes the island Andros and several small, uninhabited islands, has an area of 380 km2 (146.719 sq mi). The largest towns are Andros (town), Gavrio, Batsi, and Ormos Korthiou.
The island is famous for its Sariza spring at Apoikia, where the water flows from a sculpted stone lion’s head. Palaeopolis, the ancient capital, was built into a steep hillside, and the breakwater of its harbor can still be seen underwater. Andros also offers great hiking options.

Despite dominating the game against Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday, Chris Wood put the game to bed after three minutes by scoring the only goal of the game.

The goal came from a suicidal back pass from midfielder Lee Chung-yong.

Which could now add to the pressure of manager Frank de Boer heading for the exit door.

Andros Townsend told Sky Sports after the game: “Not taking chances has been a theme every game so far this season – but that has got to change and the start was a hammer blow.”

“We created more clear-cut chances and should have got at least one, maybe two goals, but we didn’t and this is a result’s based business and we lost again.

“It is down to the players – the manager sets up the team and we created chances but we need to put them away.”
