Crystal Palace fans are in a strange limbo at the moment. The Eagles lost yesterday, albeit against the Premier League champions, and after the game, the fans were calling for Roy Hodgson to be sacked. They looked dire and lifeless throughout the clash, laying down for the Pep Guardiola’s side who carried on their title push, and the fans are sick of it
Roy gives his thoughts on the #CRYMCI match.

Hodgson has had a long career which has had plenty of high points and loads of memorable moments. Spells with England, Inter Milan, Liverpool and Fulham have been key points in the 71-year-old’s career, yet now it looks like he’ll be coming to the end of his managerial career. Hodgson is the oldest current top-flight gaffer and his ways are starting to make the Palace fans believe he should be sacked.
At this stage of the season, the Selhurst Park faithful have little to play for. The fans know that they won’t be going down this season, and with just four games left to play, they have some meaningless games. The club can effectively start planning for next season now where once again they’ll be battling against the drop, and will be hoping to do so without Hodgson at the helm.

Unless it’s him saying he’s stepping down or he’s been sacked. I couldn’t care

“We can’t keep raising the bar” why is Roy talking as if Palace were promoted last season?! Sounds to me like he doesn’t believe in the squad anymore…

I’ve seen some terrible times at palace as many of us have.Administrations, relegations etc but I can honestly say I’ve never felt less bothered about seeing us play as I do at the moment.Its so bad & pointless it just unbearable to watch.Can not wait for a new management set up

He spoke and his body language says he has taken palace as far as he can time to leave gracefully

The Eagles cannot wait for Hodgson to leave and will be desperate to bring in a new manager ahead of the start of the 2019/20 season.
