This one paragraph shows how clueless you are, along with you're childish insults
"Townsend and Palace players have shown huge signs of improvement without him".
After a handful of games you can make that assessment, that's ludicrous.
What Palace players have shown huge improvement ?
Townsend has hugely improved ?
Because he scored a wonder goal, just like he did every now and again under Roy.
I find it quite baffling how some alleged Palace supporters bend over backwards to discredit Roy Hodgson, it's really very strange.

tbf you defended Roy's decision to have Kane take corners for England, so you're not exactly on firm ground yourself. Neither of you are going to concede your opinion, even though deep down you both know that elements of your arguments are flawed. But please carry on because it's very amusing for the rest of us.

Yes.

I do so tire of the continual putting down of Mr Hodgson.

Every thing you say is spot on. Other managers were told the time of day by Steve regarding expenditure: next to nothing. Hence Pullis and Big Sam walking.

However, Roy took on a job that the others were scared of and steered us to the position we're in now.

What's more, he did so with grace, intelligence and a refusal to play the stupid wind-up games beloved by others such as the puerile Mourinho.

In my opinion, Mr Hodgson is one of the best managers we have ever had and how good it is to see that he chose to come back to his boyhood club for one last shout.

So many on here are quick to disparage him but not me.

I am, and will always be a Roy man.

Thank you Mr Hodgson, A true gent and a Palace legend.

Totally agree.

He was employed to do a job, which he did without any fuss and drama. He may of not been to everyone’s liking, but he wasn’t employed to be liked.

Dragging up old stuff with England, Liverpool etc is pointless. We were lucky to have a gentleman to steer us through a difficult period.

A great post, mate. I've highlighted the best bit. I would add "sour-faced" after "puerile" though with regard to that odious man.

 


Palace since 19 August 1972. Palace 1 (Tony Taylor) Liverpool 1 (Emlyn Hughes)

I get why Townsend was told to defend. When you have aged slow central defenders you have to protect them. That is what Roy did. It was painful to watch and I'm glad he's gone but I cheered him to the rafters at that game v Arsenal and felt quite choked. Proper Palace hero - flawed but aren't they all? So yes we know he didn't set us up to play exciting football and it was embarrassing watching us let Burnley become Barcelona.
But you know what? We have a new spine in this team and it really shows. Lets appreciate what Roy did with the limited resources at his disposal and move on enjoying the new era. Hope Andros continues in his good form (except for when he plays us obvs) I always thought he tried.

This is spot on in my opinion. All I would add is that comparing whatever Vieria does with what Hodgson did is comparing apples with pears, as they have such different squads to work with.

None so far. However Loftus-Cheek gives due credit to Roy for helping him improve his game. So much so he became an England player during his stay with us!
