Burnley welcome Crystal Palace to Turf Moor in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, and are favourites to pick up all three points given the contrasting form of the two sides this season. Seven points from four games is a more than respectable return for Burnley, and they now look competent at Premier League level.
Dyche added: "I always say it gives an opportunity to others and Nick (Pope) came in and applied himself really well today".
But Albers admits that he fielded phone calls from clubs such as Tottenham and Liverpool when the Dutchman was at the peak of his success at Ajax and indicated that De Boer's decision to honour his contract at the Amsterdam ArenA has dented his coaching career.
Crystal Palace are still reeling from their very bad start to the season which has seen them lose all four of their opening Premier League games.
"Palace were the better side, they played well throughout the game".
"After that we played how we can play, sometimes with long balls and sometimes on the ground".
Crystal Palace's American investors Joshua Harris and David Blitzer are also owners of the Philadelphia 76ers, where they hired a young visionary called Sam Hinkie to run the team.
"I'm enjoying the time with my family taking trips we couldn't do before - we went to Hawaii recently, which would've been impossible previously as a manager with only a few weeks off in the summer".
What I saw against Burnley was another improvement, where they looked a real attacking threat.
"Over the balance of the season I thought we played very well against West Brom and got nothing. Right now I think we have to go back to the comfort zone of our players and if they feel - and I feel - and everybody's on board with that and it's in a 4-3-3 system then we're going to play 4-3-3".
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".
"If the opponent is better than us, you can live with it". We gave a goal away.
De Boer will be encouraged by the effort and commitment of his team, who will leave Lancashire feeling they deserved at least a draw, but ruing their failure to convert their overwhelming possession after the break into a goal.
