Many fans of Crystal Palace have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relayed footage of Roy Hodgson discussing his hopes for the remainder of the Eagles’ season.
Speaking after Palace’s 1-0 win against relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion last weekend, a result which saw the south London side climb to 11th place in the league standings, Hodgson said that if his side are “in the league” come May, above at least three teams in the Premier League table, that is “all the sheen” he would be looking for from this season.
However, after one Crystal Palace fan relayed the footage of Hodgson on Twitter, stating his belief that the former England boss – who has a matter of months remaining on his contract as Palace manager – has to be “the least ambitious man in world football,” many more fans of the Eagles flocked to have their say on the matter, with the majority also furious with the 73-year-old’s “disgusting” lack of ambition for their club.
Should Palace get rid of Hodgson this summer?
So, what exactly did these Crystal Palace fans have to say in reaction to the footage of Roy Hodgson?
“The least inspiring person I’ve ever met or known in football. Everyone I know who has also met him says the same bar one.”
“Surely he can’t be serious.”
“Big 2021, almost 10 years of Prem football and ALL our manager is looking for is finishing 17th.”
“Get rid now.”
“I’m done with Roy, he should have left last season after the 7 losses in a row. He’s stayed too long, his tactics are just awful.”
“This is actually disgusting – we’re approaching our 9TH CONSECUTIVE SEASON IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE. The club culture at the moment really worries me because surely these kind of comments would also be reflective of what is thought by Parish & Co.”
