Thread: Hodgson-not the right man for Palace.

  1. #1

    Hodgson-not the right man for Palace.

    Would you want someone in charge of your club with only a 35'/, win percentage? I wouldn't . If I was a Palace fan he would be the last person I'd want at Selhurst Park. He only got the England job because it was a safe option for the F. A at the time. De Boer was sacked far too early and if Palace lose their next 4 games( a more than real possibility) will they get rid of Hodgson as well. ? Something is being held back behind the scenes I believe. Palace were unlucky yesterday and deserved something out of the game. There is more to this than what appears on the surface.

    I own a pie shop in Bolton and I need a manager urgently.

    Hodgson has no chance of landing this particular gig whatsoever. He is not fit to run a pie shop never mind a team in the EFL.

    Big game coming up? Have a boat ride down the Seine with your assistant and a good bottle of Cotes de Rhone!

    Is Parish totally mad or what?

    Players got him sack no one else --- don't know if it's true but I was told that he was a real big head at training
    Boasting he was still better than them at his age.
    Hardly team building morale ( if it's true that is ) .

    Still think it wasn't Parish s decision alone to get rid --- players stabbed him in the back.

    They certainly put a shift in yesterday army88.

    A shocking back pass and an equally shocking miss ultimately cost Palace the game and de Boer his job.

    Face Bothered? We got the three points and SD is going nowhere!

    I believe there is an ex-goalkeeper from Sutton that could quite well manage your pie shop --he would even work as a taster for free --you can bet on that

    From Pardews time sounds like two Americans may be responsible

    The Palace manager had been under intense pressure after the 5-4 defeat at Swansea the previous weekend. Palace’s American investors, Joshua Harris and David Blitzer, were believed to have expressed concerns about the club’s league position and rumours suggested Roberto Mancini and Sam Allardyce were being lined up as possible replacements for Pardew.

    “The chairman got a bit edgy this week, as you’d expect,” Pardew said afterwards. “We have a lot of serious investors at the club who perhaps don’t know a lot about football so the chairman has been defending me.

    I have a lot of respect for Hodgson - he may not have got the best results as a manager, but he knows the game inside out and is an 'old school' gentleman.

    And it really irks me when people mock his speech mannerism. Same mindset as mocking people with ginger hair imho.

    Sean is back to favourite of Hodgson doesn't get it.

    Parish and the club’s American major shareholders, David Blitzer and Josh Harris were at the Turf. Could anything have been set up over a post match coffee? ... I wonder??
    Hope he has now seen how long he may last there and tell em where to go if they did.

    He has won nothing. He is useless and I have no idea why Palace would want to build their club around a trophy less 70 year bloke with no ambition and very little managerial talent.

    What's the point of knowing the game inside out if you don't get results. Like any other sport football is all about winning. 35 '/, win rate is just not acceptable. Can't you see that ?

    HIs win rate in the Premier League is 38% over 276 games with various clubs which is comparable with quite a number of PL managers in recent years. The fact that he is now in his 70s does raise the question of how he is going to progress the club, however, it is not our problem and I'm happy to let them get on with it.
    They have a good squad of players, a Chairman who does care about the club and American owners who are probably wondering what the hell is going on!

    Roy is exactly the guy they need!

    its a results bisiness which is why De Bore was sacked- a manager who has Woy"s win ratio is probably in League 1

    Roy at Liverpool

    Hodgson has at least broken plenty of records as manager at Anfield;

    • Liverpool lost 8 matches after 18 match rounds in the league for the first time since 1964/1965.
    • The last time Liverpool had fewer points at turn of the year was in 1953/54 … the season they were relegated.
    • After the first five games of the season, Liverpool recorded its worst start to a season since 1992-93.
    • Liverpool suffered its first loss to Blackpool at Anfield since 1967.
    • Liverpool’s first loss to Stoke in 26 years.
    • Liverpool’s first-ever loss in its entire history to fourth division opposition (Northampton in September).
    • Liverpool suffered only their second-ever loss to Wolves at home in 60 years.
    • For a period this season Liverpool has been mired in bottom-three relegation zone for first time since 1984.
    • The worst winning percentage (41.38%) for a Liverpool manager since 1959, edging Graeme Souness’ 41.4% in 1991-94.
    • The first Liverpool manager to win fewer than six of his first 18 league games in charge since George Kay only won five back in 1936.

    Well OC- just the man to take them back into the champion****ttttttttte.

    I wish people would read posts properly! I said quite clearly that 'he may not have got the best results as a manager', and I was commenting more on his personal qualities as opposed to louts like Big Sam.

    I would personally agree with the thread title, because Hodgson is very much a long term team-builder and would give some stability to a roller-coaster club like Palace, but I agree that he's an anachronism in the modern game and won't be given a chance.

    His recent club win rate is near 40% with Liverpool actually his best effort, so if he wins 14 of the next 34 that's 42 points and safety

    Fulham 30 December 2007 -1 July 2010. - 39.1
    Liverpool 1 July 2010 -8 January 2011 -41.9
    West Bromwich 14 February 2011-14 May 2012 -37.0

    England 14 May 2012 27 June 2016 -58.9

    But he hasn't done much since leaving England apart from a sojourn to Melbourne. A two year contract hardly says much about this being long term. Meanwhile Frank gets 5M for 77 days work.

    Palace management seems to be dysfunctional. Given the next four games include three top teams will Roy go if they lose them all??

    Wasn't Hodgson in charge of the England team that capitulated to Iceland ? After that debacle he should never be allowed near any football team again....ever. But if Palace want to let him loose on their team, well best of luck with that.
