It Didn't Take Long For Roy Hodgson To Piss Off Palace Supporters

"I believe the team will stay up, absolutely".

De Boer departed on Monday, only 77 days into a three-year contract, after Palace became the first team in England's top division to lose their opening four league fixtures without scoring since Preston 93 years ago.

An early strike from Steven Davis after Dusan Tadic's cross had been parried by Wayne Hennessey is all that now stands between the sides, but Hodgson's men have rarely anxious, other than a Christian Benteke effort that was well saved by Fraser Forster.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson predicts more "painful" times ahead for the club after they made it five straight losses in the Premier League.

"I thought in the first half we were very nervous, people didn't show any real confidence on the ball at all".

The former Liverpool and Inter Milan boss has been a manager for over 40 years, and despite possessing a very credible record in the dugout, his final game as England coach will never be forgotten.

Other reports suggest that Hodgson could be given £40m to spend Crystal Palace in January as they look to climb out of the drop zone. We have to mould ourselves into a better football team.

"In the second half, we attacked better, nowhere near as well as I would like to see but we did get up to the ball better".

I am sure we will see some changes in Palace in their upcoming games but, after about 10 matches under Hodgson, we will be able to see a big difference.

"I didn't want to end (my career) on a bad result, but I think the 56 games and the seven defeats is not so bad", he said. "I can't put that right but I'm very pleased to be back at the highest level with a good football club".

Bottom-of-the-table Crystal Palace suffered a 1-0 defeat to Southampton at Selhurst Park in the lunchtime kick-off.

The win hands Mauricio Pellegrino his first away win since he took charge on the south coast, while Hodgson faces an uphill battle to turn Palace's form around, especially with their next three matches pitting them against Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea.
