Crystal Palace fans react angrily to Roy Hodgson’s comments

Crystal Palace fans have reacted angrily to Roy Hodgson’s comment in his pre-match press conference before the visit of Leicester, as revealed on the club’s official Twitter account.

The Eagles’ boss said: “We don’t necessarily need reinforcements next month. We’ll have (Christian) Benteke back soon, (Connor) Wickham recovering from a 2 year absence, (Alexander) Sørloth, (Jordan) Ayew. We believe we have players within our ranks who can score goals.”

His comments have understandably infuriated fans of the south London club, who are not oblivious to the fact that a striker hasn’t scored a Premier League goal for them from open play since January, and not at all since April.

The fact that many fans are also pinning their hopes of survival on some January additions, only for the Palace boss to say they don’t need any, will undoubtedly anger them.

Let’s take a look at some of the best tweets from a number of frustrated fans…
