Ideally, I'd like to see Roy retire at the end of the season with a great replacement coming in whom we're already lining up. However, I have absolutely no faith in the board to manage that transition and find a good replacement properly.

Keeping Hodgson another season might sound like a safe bet, because we'd almost certainly stay up, but I think we'll lose Wilf, AWB, maybe Luka and Townsend. Our best players leaving would mean that we'd then have the terrifying prospect of starting the 2020/21 season with a new manager and new key players, and just as I have no faith in the board to replace the manager well, I have even less faith in our player recruitment.

Tricky times. At least Wilf is doing his best to deter any big bids with his performances.

You want rid of Roy, an experienced manager, who has kept us up with ease over the last 2 seasons. You want someone new, who is better, but you don't know who and have no faith in the board knowing either.

One of those, I don't like what I have got, but I want something else and I have no idea who, if I don't like it I will complain, posts.

I shouldnít be that surprised if Roy walks at the end of the season anyway as we need some serious investment and thereís been nothing to suggest our recruitment will be good enough. Weíll need a miracle to stay up next season if we lose a couple of key players.

An experienced manager Roy maybe but he is stuck in the past and to the detriment of developing the team and in the process attracting new players. Last night was living Proof. His after match interview was as weak as dish water and anyone who didnít know any bettter would have thought that he was a closet Spurs fan with the praise he heaped on them.
Itís not the fans job to short list a new manager itís the Board who have that role and i hope that they have already started but somehow i have my doubts.

The whole point of my post was that it's very difficult to figure out what's best at the present time. Not demanding that we get rid of Roy because anyone but him could do a better job.

It really is the old adage be very careful what you wish for! RH IMO has done a brilliant job, he has got us playing good football most of the time, all teams have poor games. What really worries me is the lack of quality signings over the last few windows. RH is not to blame for this I'm sure. I hope he stays next season and SP & Co back him and it would be a good idea to get the ground development started.

Is it the fans job to demand the manager to be sacked, when he has achieved his objective of remaining in the Premier. This is the same objective for at least 12 other managers.
The board will thinking very carefully, who is best equipped to keep us there, as over £120m is at stake.
For those demanding attractive free flowing football will be disappointed, the money available in the game, now mean results are vital by any means possible, entertaining football isn't a priority.
Fulham played entertaining football, but let in shed loads of goals, resulting in relegation.

One more thing I've just thought of (though I am still in the Roy out camp) is that maybe Parish knows something we don't about Zaha and AWB.

Zaha certainly doesn't seem as passionate and he might know hes off. I think United will make AWB their main target also.

Now, if that's the case you could argue a much different outlook. Rather than progress and play expansive football, Parish might be thinking we have to scrape survival without our 2 best players.

In that situation Roy might be the right man. Without Zaha in the team a boring 0-0 suddenly seems quite ambitious.

A new Manager is definitely coming the season after next whatever happens. If they come in now and lose their best 2 players they'll already be frustrated.

Let Roy deal with the Wilfless hangover season, pray for 17th and then move on next season perhaps?

Or looking at it another way. If we sell our 2 best players, why give that money to roy to buy players when he will be leaving in a year. Why not give it to a new manager to buy the players he wants. .

If this was Roy's objective at the start of thd season I would be very dissapointed.

I'm not necessarily asking for free flowing football. Just something better than sitting behind the ball, trying to cath teams on the break, trying to play possession football. Even at home against the worst team to ever grace the premiership.

I think you will find that half of the Premier League club's first objective is to stay in it. Anything else such as a cup run is a bonus.

Of course you want to finish as high up the league as you can.

We could still finish 12th this season. But that clearly isn't good enough for some on here.

At this stage I would be amazed if Roy came back after next season.

Given that strong assumption, I say get rid at the end of this season and take control of the situation.

A year and a bit from now Parish will be doing a manager search anyway. We are not going to qualify for Europe next year with Hodgson, no way.

Same stubborn Hodgson and same negative defeatist approach will lead to the same results next season.

We have some players we need to hold on to and you cannot tell me Zaha is enjoying his football right now. We had 1 shot on target at Spurs.

Its a risk, but we need to show some balls, in the absence of Hodgson showing any, ever.

He wont be around after next year anyway, so why stumble through another disappointing and joyless season of football permeated with a few highs here and there.

Take decisive action, grow a pair, and try to kick on and actually go to the next level.

Just remind yourself of what happened at the start of last season...

I find it staggering that people want rid of Roy. Whilst we aren't yet mathematically safe, we've been comfortable for a large chunk of this season. That's a massive achievement.
