Broadly Iím in agreement with your post WJK.
Itís not so much that I donít think well of Hodgson but itís more the level of hyperbole around his achievements that I struggle with.
I was at the Chelsea victory and it was a tactical masterclass with Chelsea totally confused by the fluidity of our play.
I also was fortunate enough to witness the away victories under Hodgson at Man City and Arsenal and said to my family at the time to make the most of it as these were once in 20 years type experiences.
Probably an 8 out of 10 to Hodgson for the first few years, particularly with the constraints others have highlighted.
Since the back end of last season though there are worrying signs.
Some really terrible performances with Hodgson looking clueless as to how remedy the situation.
Heís moved to a 442 which has left us vulnerable in defence and central midfield.
Itís easy to blame our strikers, but how much service is provided to them in reality.
We have no attacking threat without Zaha and as manager Hodgson should surely have addressed this situation by now so that we have an alternative way of threatening the opposition.
Iím not advocating that he be sacked, merely that for all parties concerned it may be better to have a parting of the ways at the end of the season.
If he leaves and it all goes Ďbelly upí I may look back at his tenure fondly!

Exactly Willo, exactly. They were desperate times and thankfully Roy steered us to safety.

Although Mr Hodgson joined after 4 games,after 7 games we had lost the lot and not scored a solitary goal which was a 'first' in the PL.

We only won 1 of our first 12 games and were firm favourites for relegation.It was only in our 17th game,home to Watford, when a 2-1 win saw us off the bottom for the first time,accordingly we were bottom for nearly half the season.

We finished 11th which was a creditable feat given the above.

 


Let's see SP and the board trying to line up for a piss in the AW toilets at half time before peddling the new stand. We're the Arthur over here and the facilities are a disgrace

Where's the rolling eyes emoji when you need it?

Hyperbole, is that your word of the week ? And you struggle with it? JHFC

It's a free board and opinions are just that, as with sphincters, everybody has one.

this is the bit i really dont understand. Hes changed to 442 to presumably make us more of a threat going forward while weakening us defensively. While its weakened us defensively, it hasn't made much difference going forward. Most games we have started with wilf benteke, ayew and eze, with PVA getting forward, and we still rarely look a threat. So are these players not good enough, or is it tactics/training. And as its clearly not working why on earth hadn't he changed it to stop us leaking goals.

Great e mail Dazza. Ignore the haters . Maybe itís time our disinterested chairman received a few more e mails like this and then maybe just maybe he will take his head out of the sand.

Disinterested, what a crock of s***.

There have been spells where 442 worked well for him.
Think in particular where he used Cabaye and in form Luka in the central positions with Mcarthur tucked in on the right and RLC tucked in on the left.
We had more control in midfield as essentially they were four proper midfield players and Mcarthur and RLC were quite adaptable.
Recently Hodgson has tried Ayew and PVA there and it just hasnít worked.
We also have an out of form Luka and a relatively inexperienced Luka in the central areas.
This is why we would probably look more secure at the moment if they were bolstered with the addition of Mcarthy and Kouyate to at least make us more competitive and less prone to being outnumbered.

A quick review of your posting history makes me wonder whether you are referring to your own posts as almost all of them seem to be insulting others who you don't agree with
