Roy Hodgson

"Are West Ham a model club for a team like us? Of course, the problem at Palace is the history, it's a yo-yo club. The second year in the Premier League, this is the toughest year.

"In the first year after promotion, you can get by with this sheer excitement and adrenaline that being in the Premier League can provide.

"In the second year that kind of runs out and you then are leaning on what you have in the building in terms of quality. We're hoping we've got enough in the building to overcome that second year.

"It's a very, very difficult thing to do but once you've done that, you can stabilise if you buy and trade well. Stoke, West Ham, Southampton, Newcastle - they've all done that in recent years.

"It's still special going back and I have still got some staff and ex-players who are still there. And obviously there is the connection from Newcastle now with Kevin (Nolan) and Andy (Carroll).

"I just think Upton Park is a great stadium for football - the atmosphere and the way the crowd get involved in the game, it is a bit like what we have here. It is an emotional ground.

"I hope they will be able to transfer that to the Olympic Stadium - I think that is going to be important to West Ham. They are going to get more revenue from moving but what they can't lose is that special kind of atmosphere that you can create there. There were some magic nights."
