Burnley started very poorly last season and have been relegated and returned to the PL during the Pozzo era. Palace started very poorly the previous season. Muff have admittedly avoided this sort of thing so far and I'd put this down to the 'Eddie Howe effect' and the consistency that brings. He's an excellent manager which is at least as important as the money factor. Same argument around consistency re. Dyche. Say what you like about our 'revolving door' policy but the evidence currently is that it hasn't fared us any better than consistency.
