New boss, same old story for Crystal Palace

New boss, same old story for Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson admits he and staff need to improve with what they have after defeat to Southampton.

"The only comfort I could take is that we got better as the game went on".

If you embrace Hodgson's ideas, they work.

Sky Sports and Sportsmail pundit Redknapp said the team are having an identity crisis due to the change in approach by Hodgson compared to his predecessor, Frank de Boer.

"And there's no point in making bold statements that might not be ratified in some way".

On top of these signings, perhaps the upper-management were hoping for Crystal Palace to be a stout defensive side and grind out one goal wins as in the olden days of Pulis and Allardyce. "All the players came off the pitch sweating, thinking we'd never worked that hard before", Morrison said but they bought into what Hodgson was doing because they recognised the benefits.

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

For Hodgson it is crucial, though, because of the way his teams are set up.

The team can break down or become less effective if one player refuses, does not know what to do, or just does not do their job for whatever reason.

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

Crystal Palace chief Steve Parish has made a bit of a mug of himself after saying everybody should calm down after only a few defeats, with it then emerging that Palace started looking for a new boss before the global break - only two weeks into the season.

It was the worst possible start, conceding the goal so early, a team that's obviously a little bit nervous and anxious anyway becomes even more nervous and anxious. It could turn out to be a very good match.

"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.

Brede Hangeland was speaking to BBC Sport's Chris Bevan. As a result, Bet 365 are giving odds of 19/10 for Crystal Palace to win against Southampton at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.
