I wonder if all the Meyer must start in place of Jimmy Mac will be so vocal after todayís performance.After being inafective in the first half,giving the ball away or passing backwards ,he was rightly replaced by Jimmy for the second half who didnít put a foot wrong and in my opinion was a major reason we went on to win a game without playing well .He should only be used as a sub when the game is stretched when we need a plan B please note Maine Eagle!!

I actually thought Meyer did ok in the First Half and was unlucky to be taken off... thought that one of the others would have gone before him.. Technically heís very good and perhaps should play on the left with Wilf whoís on the same wavelength as him...

You must of been watching a different game. He hardly touched the ball. We were so much better after his departure.

Very surprised he started today, it was never going to be his day. Had he come on after 60 minutes it might have been very different. If I was him I'd have felt a bit stitched up because Hodgson got that decision very wrong.

McArthur clearly a better player. Hope Max lives up to his billing and wages soon.

I felt a bit sorry for Meyer. He didn't play badly and didn't give the ball away cheaply unlike some. However McArthur is a niggling combative individual and he was what we needed in the 2nd half.

McArthur is a much better player than has been suggested by many on here. Meyer, on the other hand, has had excuse after excuse made for him.

Would really like him to succeed but looks an absolute luxury. He canít beat a player, doesnít seem to find space and looks lazy and offers so little when the opposition have the ball.

I have said many times

Meyer is fine as a super sub but isnít strong and aggressive enough to start

McArthur is hugely influential and well worth his place

There is no question that McArhur is one of the best/ most consistent performers at the club.

If Roy persists with the 4-3-3 then the best midfielders are Luka, Kouyate and Macca. Unfortunately he is losing his marbles so consistently plays Schlupp despite the fact he hasnít a clue how to play CM.

Meyer could be quality but he will take 5+ games starting as CAM to really bed in and we arenít able to offer that guarantee.

Seeing as you mentioned me....

Roy may not be doing it deliberately but he is on a stitch up of Meyer, there is no other explanation.

The whole team, the whole performance was crap first half. Meyer had some neat touches, and on one occasion he harried and won the ball back well, and launched an attack.

He was playing much, much better than Schlupp.

Second half things opened up and while I will admit MacArthur actually affected the game when it became a but more stretched, but this is EXACTLY when Meyer should have been out there.

Once again though Roy stitches him up and hooks him at half time (he never makes subs at half time), like starting him in physical away games.

Max Meyer was one of the most highly touted young prospects to come out of Germany in years. Please dont expect me to believe he has become a sh&t player overnight. Hodgson has a lot to answer for destroying the guy's confidence and not letting him get into any kind of rhythm here.

The way Hodgson has managed him has been nothing short of very, VERY poor. You can say all you like that he hasnt taken his chances but any player coming from a foreign league, especially one who isnt the strongest physically, needs a proper run of games and some stability.

Roy hasnt got a clue how to bed in new signings, except ones on loan that we cannot buy anyway, they start every week.

Kouyate should be starting for one.

Mark my words, Meyer will leave Palace behind and go on to become a very high class and highly regarded player in the game. He is too good for the way Hodgson sets us up, it completely doesn't play to any of his strengths.

So why the F did we sign him?

Your last point only makes sense if you are correct in your assumptions

When exactly is his day going to be?
