The difference with us is that all of the above teams, minus Brighton, have wealthy owners who will pump money in to turn it around sooner rather than later.

Actually, there was an article earlier this year I think, whereby Brighton were in the top 20 (or so) spenders over recent seasons.

Apropos Brighton, their 'Net Spend' in the PL over the last 3 seasons has been nigh on 190 Mill.

We have just a few weeks to plan for next season.

Roy Hodgson, who now says he "doesn't know what more he can do" should hand in his resignation and retire
with the appreciation of Palace fans for keeping us in the PL.

He has obviously lost the dressing room and both he, his tactics and the players are embarrassing the supporters. We are rapidly becoming a laughing stock.

No time for messing about because we are nailed on certainties for relegation in the new season unless there is fresh blood.

Difficult to choose a new manager but better done now than after a dozen matches as a crisis move.

If Mr Parish does not see the approaching crisis and take the necessary action we are destined for the Championship and, eventually, worse.

These were comments relating to our position at present with the injuries and suspensions, indicating that his options are limited and I totally understand the point he made.

You are quoting him out of context like all the other 'Hodgson out' brigade (and no I'm not someone who says we have to keep Hodgson at all costs, just someone who thinks he's done a decent job given the squad and circumstances - I won't cry if he decides it's time to go now). Given our current injuries etc. he hasn't got any options other than put out the same 11/12 senior players available plus a few of the better youngsters, none of whom are likely to be the next AWB find, although a couple may make the grade as reasonable first team squad options in due course. We aren't blessed with the youth riches of Chelsea, United, Liverpool etc.

Quite a few supporters I have been in conversation with are not positive at all about our prospects next season and not looking forward to it at all.
Chickens have come home to roost.

I felt that way at the start of this season and thought we'd be relegated this year. We've over achieved given our aged injury prone squad with limited fore power. Last couple of months have been painful but given what's at his disposal Roy still deserves credit

I don't really blame Roy for where we're currently at - sure, he could have rotated the side better and I still can't believe he brought McCarthy on at half time against Villa as if he'd turn it around, but the root cause lies behind the scenes.

Everyone saw what a shambles last summer and the previous January was. That was always going to bite us on the arse. Then we thought we'd get Bowen in January, didn't, and he's done a lot for West Ham. The one positive was Cahill who is a very good, very short term solution to a problem that wasn't at the top of the priority list.

The previous windows it was the hope that killed us. The idea that surely we'd find a couple of gems. Now it's the reverse and everyone's resigned to the expectation we'll do sod all. I so hope we're wrong.

Though we've just got one over the line, so back to it being the hope that kills us!

Yes Roy has kept us clinging to the PL for the last 3 seasons. In that he has been a success. Now he has run out of ideas.

During those 3 seasons there has been little or no investment for the club's medium/long term future.

Whatever manager we have next season, Palace are now standing at a precipice.

With the squad available now I don't think there's a manager alive (or dead) who could succeed.

As for the players, I doubt any of them have the integrity to feel embarrassed for being paid so much and producing such dross.

Exactly this. 12 months from now the Palace gravy train will be pulling into its final stop, Championship Central, and the freeloaders will be off, many of whose contracts coincidently expire at the same time. Remarkable. All aboard!
