Crystal Palace are the first Premier League side to swing the axe this season, remarkably sacking Frank De Boer just four games into his stint at Selhurst Park.
The Eagles are rooted to the bottom of the table in the early period, yet to find the net this season, and patience could not be found from owner Steve Parish- despite only appointing the four-time Eredivisie winner in charge over the course of the summer.
The tabloids suggest that former England and Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is in-line to take charge in South London, with the target being to steer the side away from relegation, and the decision has been mocked by Reds supporters on social media.
Hodgson hardly set the world alight during his tenure in charge at Anfield and was equally sub-par in his management with England, seeing the Three Lions knocked-out of the World Cup at the group stage in 2014 and then losing to minnows Iceland in last year’s European Championship.
Naturally, that’s led to plenty of jokes at Crystal Palace’s expense.
Sacking de Boer and hiring Hodgson is like kicking over a dumpster fire & setting the building on fire. Relegation bound

Ah well, if it is going to be Hodgson at least we'll find out if Benteke's any good at taking corners. #CPFC

Sacking an exciting,young,Dutchman after 4 games & appointing a
70 y/o, washed up cabbage like Hodgson is the most Brexit move in PL history

Not sure what's more ridiculous. Sacking De Boer after 4 games or giving the job to Hodgson.

Sends a shiver down the spine thinking of him as a club manager dark days

Relegation seems a fair result as consequences for those two decisions

De Boer getting sacked after four games and replaced by Roy Hodgson is a depressing encapsulation of English top-flight football.

Crystal Palace are a club from ends but they want Roy Hodgson as their manager so they need to be relegated this season.

NOTHING will make me happier than seeing Roy Hodgson take Crystal Palace down.
