After weeks of uncertainty, horrendous football, and poor results, Crystal Palace, a club on its knees, have clarity on their managerial situation.

The Eagles Beak understands that the Crystal Palace board met last night with the group, including club chairman Steve Parish, agreeing that Roy Hodgson’s tenure at the club is untenable and change is needed immediately.

Saturday’s embarrassing 4-1 defeat to Brighton is said to have finally made Parish’s mind up, acknowledging that sacking Hodgson would be the best course of action for the club. Palace have won just six games this season and are clear relegation contenders.

However, sacking Hodgson is not as simple as it sounds. The club are struggling to find a replacement for the veteran boss, with Steve Cooper, Graham Potter, and Julen Lopetegui all being sounded out and turning down the opportunity.

The board will not sack Hodgson unless the replacement is lined up, as games are coming thick and fast with Palace sitting just five points above the drop-zone.

  1. I really hope Steve Cooper is out of the picture. Appointing him would be an underwhelming admission that we lack any ambition!

    1. Totally agree. Can’t totally blame Roy that our best players are injured and we haven’t got good enough backup.

  2. How wonderful Parish can knock Roy Hodgson. Put your hands in your pocket Parish if you want to get a decent team. Palace will never be contenders with you in the seat !!!
