Agree 100%. Schlup had a decent game today.

I thought Meyer might have been required to break down a stubborn defensive opponent today, as we usually face when struggling teams come to Selhurst, but Fulham played right into our hands by letting us play like the away team - so a much more suitable game for the hard-working Schlupp.

I don't get the Meyer adulation.
He's a decent player,but too lightweight,and sometimes tries to be too clever , resulting in the loss of possession.
I've never seen him play a thoroughly good game,and against the better sides he tends to become anonymous.
Roy knows exactly what he's doing.

Meyer was great when he came on...he's so elusive and good at nudging the ball to a team mate in a better position before an opponent can get near him.

Schlupp is so frustrating. He has energy and power and, when simply running with the ball, is fine. But he can't see anything but the simplest pass and as such can be dispossessed.

Another advantage of Schlupp over Meyer is that Schlupp had a goal in him. We need that because almost nobody else does.

Meyer is more effective later in the game when it gets more stretched. Roy knows exactly what heís doing.

I agree with you to an extent...but thats because Hodgson plays him out of position. I wouldnt be surprised to see him go at the end of the season at this rate

Agree. Would be a shame, could see him being a top player at a better team than us, maybe doesnít suit our style.
Im not having the Ď heís not big enough to play against the physical teamsí David Silva is an inch off of being a midget, he plays against everyone.
Like him, quality, but needs to be playing at his age. Canít knock Roy though, heís got a reliable midfield.

Roy picked him today... and brought him on at an important stage of the game when he made a difference moving the ball a lot quicker than Luka and McArthur. It might just be that he's more effective as a sub than a starter in certain games.


Jeff Schlupp who was a prolific youth team striker at Leicester scored the crucial second goal for a team that's strugled to score at home and had a solid game as has been the case a lot recently.

I know it's all about opinions, but I thought Meyer demonstrated why Roy doesn't entirely trust him, he lost possession several times in dangerous positions after coming on today. Don't get me wrong, I do like him as a player but, as others have said, he's a bit lightweight and can be knocked off the ball too easily.

Needs to be played in the No.10 role...a role that Roy doesnt believe in. His ability to receive the ball in tight spaces roll a player and play a pass means that's where he'd thrive. It'd also mean we could buy a different type of striker as well.

Again; agree but he was in those positions because he's not being played where he's best suited.

Meyer is our best player, absolutely mustard.

Struggled with the pace of the league in the beginning, but he's there now.

I've slept on it and Hodgson is just a daft old c***, f*** him and his Plan A or nothing football, predictable line ups and bizarre substitutions.

He had a stronger attack on the bench than on the pitch last night and he brought on Schlupp?

And to think there's people on here foolish enough to argue he's one of England's greatest ever managers and had massive success, I'm sick of this nonsense. He's an old, mediocre manager on the wane big time.

I've never said it before, but he's got to go. Start Ayew up front and try to defend a one goal lead Vs Southampton? PVA undroppable despite how bad he plays? Meyer on the bench ffs?! We are sleepwalking into relegation and even if we turn things around can realistically only catch 13th. This is unacceptable, that is a top ten squad all day long.

Sure, Roy has his wtf moments but he's more than good enough for us.
I'd love nothing more to see a local lad take his local team to The Cup final, win the bloody thing and then shove it right up your f**cking arse.

Strange one really. In my opinion heís our best centre midfielder. Very tidy and creative. In theory itís a perfect set up with the more defensive Luka to sit behind him.

It almost feels like there is some kind of discipline issue/problem with Roy behind the scenes which we donít known about. Itís baffling thatís heís not starting.

I think thereís a real danger that heíll want to leave if it continues and weíll lose him to a bigger club.
