Why shouldn't he?

At the back of eight straight defeats slightly humiliating, but the team still survived in the PL.

Aften an opening 8 straight defeats next season, which is very likely, it is going to be worse.

So for him as well as the club, it is time.

Don't think he is motivated any longer.
Speculation rife that board( bored!!) are talking to Dyche and who can possibly blame them as we complete our eighth defeat in a row,a club record.

Hodgson is still looking for that blade of grass in front of the dugout.

For his sake, I'd like to see him step down and enjoy life without the worries of Covid and the precarious position of the club with its parsimonious owners. However, he may see coaching - in a protected environment - as a good way to get out of the house, have "fun," and stay relevant, especially if he likes many of the players. And if he left now, the new manager would have less time than usual to get to know the squad. Here's hoping there's a succession plan in place - for 2021-22 at the latest.

There are just over 6 weeks until the new season starts.
We have Cahill, Tomkins, Benteke, Sakho and PVA injured and possibly not ready for the new season.
We have the uncertainty of Zahaís future and also uncertainty around Wickham and Meyer.
We are also supposedly looking at recruiting a number of younger players.
Thatís a lot to take on board in six weeks and probably means itís doesnít make sense to include a change of manager to add to all the uncertainty.
Personally I would have liked a change to have been made, but I can see from the clubís perspective that it could be a high risk strategy with a new season around the corner.
Perhaps a case of better the devil you know.

Agree. Too much to do, too little time to do it and too much at stake.

If the board are looking to bring in several younger players, their focus needs to be on getting those signings over the line as quickly as possible so they will be available when pre-season training starts in 3 weeks time. Consequently, unless they actually have a new manager ready to sign on the dotted line and start this week, the safest thing is to stick with Roy, who after all has delivered what the board has wanted over the last 3 seasons with a minimum nett spend.

Hodgson most certainly is not the person to take any youth project on. I'd also suggest he doesn't like flair or maverick type players, because they don't fit into his footballing philosophy. He has managed to turn Wilf into a mere shadow of his former self. No, the ideal player in Hodgson's mind is a Gary Cahill type, a huffer and puffer with minimum technical ability, patrols the area designated and sticks to the "shape" ideal obediently. How do we know? Ray Lewington said so. It's no coincidence that Cahill, McCarthy, and Kouyate are the work of Hodgson. Dull and uninspiring footballers just like the dull and uninspiring manager. Steve Parish I do hope you are working behind the scenes to bring someone fresh in.

I have heard similar sentiments expressed recently by those who have come to the conclusion that Hodgson needs to be replaced for the reasons stated in the post.However there was no criticism of Cahill!

The view was that we can sign all the players we like but at the end of the day the 'Hodgson way' will prevail, where rigid shape and playing within a 'Straitjacket' will once again bore us into slack-jawed somnolence.

Thereís that Palace positivity, Nostradamus. Pessimistic cynicism and misery - isnít it lovely? If Roy does go next season after we start poorly, then so be it.

PS - Get Your crystal ball fixed.

Barring health issues, the only way I see Roy not being in charge come 12th September is if the rumours are true that we want Dyche and he tells Palace it's now or never.

The way Roy set-up this season was to have 8 defensive players with the idea that the front three could try and produce something up top. Ayew was the only one who really produced and hence we didn't score. If Wilf had played like last year we would possibly have had 10 more goals and 10 more points. Roy himself has said we need attacking players and are aiming to bring in youth, all this talk around here of only wanting old workhorses doesn't ring true to me.

A lot of talk about Dyche but I cannot understand why he would leave a fairly stable team with crap players and no money for investment for an unstable team with crap players and no money for investment?

We're in a dire situation with playing staff and now Wilf almost certain to leave. Yes, Hodgson bores me to tears sometimes but I only think he is half the problem, if we change manager but nothing else it will be an unnecessary gamble, I think 'better the devil you know' has already been mentioned.

I also think the suggestion we got one point out of our last 8 means a change is needed is nonsense we've been in danger of a run like that all season, it still feels miraculous we have stayed up.

 


Here's to you the famous red and blue.....

Well, to the best of my knowledge, Roy didn't retire yesterday, so it's surely time to close this thread down and those who want to continue to debate the pros and cons of Roy staying on can do so on the other two threads that cover that debate!
