Crystal Palace: Fans react to Roy Hodgson’s message to the board

Crystal Palace: Fans react to Roy Hodgson’s message to the board - Crystal Palace

After six games without a win, it’s fair to say Crystal Palace are on the decline and worrying signs are beginning to emerge, with Roy Hodgson seemingly dissatisfied with the backing he has received from his board.

His frustrations are understandable given the club has paid money for just two additions in 2019/20, £3m James McCarthy and £2.5m Jordan Ayew, yet some of their rivals, such as West Ham and Newcastle, have spent £40m or more on Sebastien Haller and Joelinton respectively.

The fact the Eagles have spent much of the season in the top-half or comfortably in mid-table is testament to the management of Hodgson, but it is no surprise that his small squad is beginning to falter with just one win in 11 matches.

A lack of goals has been a key issue for much of the season with 22 scored in 25 league games, and though Cenk Tosun arrived on loan there was a key lack of investment in that third of the pitch last month. The Eagles boss bemoaned that fact (tweeted out by Dominic Fifield) in sending a clear message to the board that a transfer strategy needs to be planned out for the summer, one which can make Palace more competitive heading into next season.

Supporters have been reacting to Hodgson’s comments with many sharing a similar sentiment to their manager, while others have raised the question of whether the owners will sell the club soon.
