Apart the first game at Bournemouth and Flashes against Chelsea and Man U we have been predictable, poor, lacking effort looking worse than Norwich and that is down to Roy. If the plan was to survive why have we only blooded one player. I've always thought managers have a finite shelf life, he needs to go. 8 possibly 9 losses on the bounce can anyone defend him. He trains them ,selects them, his tactics, please let him admit he's now out of his depth and resigns.

what a crock of s***e!! i had roys back and was looking forward to next season before lock down. but what has happened in these past 7 games has been totally unacceptable, he has to leave now there is no question of that.

will lose at spurs 100% and will be 8 defeats running, the rot has now well and truely began to set in.

that second half drinks break said a thousand words to me when the whole of the wolves team were huddled around their manager and the palace team where scattered around the side lines with no sense of direction or leadership!!!!

i just cant believe whats happened to our season


ive never been so let down by a palace side

what a sad state of affairs!!!!!

We'll win if we're at Spurs because we'll have no opposition. Spurs will be at Selhurst waiting for us!

Tactically we are atrocious. Our only 'trick' is to create a 3 vs 2 on the wing (fullback+Zaha+one central mid) and hope that a gap will appear for Zaha to go in behind. That's it. Seeing McArthur playing as a left winger (!) chasing a ball in behind that takes him to the sideline, where he needs to sit on the ball and go back... it's depressing. We can only play if we have space to run in behind and teams know they don't need to push up to eventually score against us. So the opportunities for us at the other end are limited. And seeing Townsend (who I like) whipping those crosses from the right with his left... for who? Ayew against Boly, or worse McArthur? Players like McArthur, McCarthy, Ward, are asked to play in ways that expose all their weaknesses. And Sakho, with all due respect, it's the third time I see him injuring himself by walking.
We're old, weak and only play well against the odd top team in crisis, so again we need to pray there are three worse teams next season.

That is exactly why you should rotate the squad and make early substitutions.

Have you seen the injury list, the squad isn't deep enough to rotate.
Wolves have played about 15 games more than us, they play basically the same team every game.

I guarantee that there will not be 3 worse teams than us next season. We will not have the money to sort out the problems and has anyone any faith in Freedman even if we have.

I think not having the fear of the crowd on their backs is a big factor. We're very average. Sadly I find myself thinking I wouldn't mind if any of the squad left but Wilf and Guiata, the 2 that may well go. Offloading Benteke and Sakho should be a priority. Salvage what we can.

Well with Kelly as a starter we have won 11 games drawn three and lost three. Kouyate is the next best semi-regular so he should have played more since restart as well

See my other reply. Plus why not give Pierrick a shot. in his first short sub he helped set up a goal. Since then he's just had one mean remark from Hodgson

Kelly is decent, shame that he has been plagued by injuries.

Very difficult given their waves and performances. Teams will tighten up financially or if they'll splash, they will do so on the finished product. We'll stick with them and get the same or loan them out and pay a big chunk of their wages. Probably with a better supporting cast around them, even them would perform slightly better. We'd all like to see the backs of them but doesn't seem likely.

Guaita will probably have decent offers from Spain if we signal that he's available. But I am terrified of going back to WH as our No 1. Absolutely terrified.

Kelly I’m sure would have played but obviously not fit yet
