No happy start for Roy Hodgson as Crystal Palace misery continues

Palace are thus without a goal in five games this season, the longest run from the start of a Premier League campaign. You have to work for these things.

"In those days I had dreams of playing for the team, then as a coach you think about coaching the team, and a lot has happened in between times".

As a centre-back, he would often put me in a three-against-two situation so I would be outnumbered in order to work on moving my feet, my positional play and my relationship to the other players on the pitch.

"I can't score goals in those previous five games or change the points".

Knowing that Christian Benteke was their main contributor for the scoresheet, Crystal Palace have failed to bring in anybody that would offer competition to his spot or an alternative style of play to better suit de Boer's tactics. All I can do is to try and encourage the players to be as mentally strong as they can possibly be.

Hodgson said he was looking forward to the new challenge.

Crystal Palace still haven't scored this season after their fifth defeat in a row, losing 1-0 to Southampton.

He is very active on Twitter and when in conversation with Newcastle fans, has often been keen to make petty jibes about NUFC.

As a result, De Boer lost his job, giving him the unwanted record of the shortest reign of a manager in terms of matches played in the Premier League era.

Roy Hodgson is confident of turning Crystal Palace's fortunes around - but admits things may get worse before they get better.

At those smaller clubs, you probably get more loyalty from the players, who do not have the same big names and stature as those at the big clubs.

Even last season's managerial cameo, Bob Bradley, looked on with sympathy as the flying Dutchman heroically swooped in to get his marching orders after only helming four games with his team failing to score a single goal.

Looking at Palace's squad, they have enough players who will understand that, and they will suit Hodgson's approach quite well.

"Today I thought it was a disappointing performance", said Hodgson on what was his first taste of management since England's defeat to Iceland in the last 16 at Euro 2016 almost 15 months ago.
