Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to express their concern at Roy Hodgson’s comments regarding their transfer business this month, with his words not exactly being music to the ears of a fanbase desperate to see a striker arrive.
The 71-year-old Eagles boss said in his pre-match press conference before the trip to Liverpool: “We have two more weeks like everybody else; the work will continue if there are more possibilities that suit us, so nothing changes in that respect.
“But to say I’m expecting it, I’d have to have a definite name in the frame who is on the verge of signing and that’s not the case.”
The Eagles travel to a Liverpool side on Saturday that have conceded just three home goals in the Premier League this season, though Christian Benteke did grab a brace in a recent visit to his former home.
Fans of the south London club are understandably concerned at Hodgon’s comments, as they are in desperate need of a proper goalscorer.
Jordan Ayew is the only Eagles striker to register a Premier League goal this season, and Hodgson’s side are the joint-fourth lowest scoring team in the league with just 20 goals in 22 games.

So essentially, we we hadn’t of had injured keepers we wouldn’t have signed anyone and let likes of Punch and Williams go. Bit odd

Love @CEO4TAG but surely this lack of investment will kill us eventually. If you’re Wilfred Zaha, why would you stay beyond this season? Really sad as I felt this was our year to bomb on. Three consecutive scandalous transfer windows has stagnated progression.

Problem is we have 3 strikers so unless one or two leave then I guess we got no choice but to stick with what we have ?♂️

Just makes me wonder really how they can’t land anyone anymore the last few windows have been dreadful I never agreed the no ambition thing but I can’t even see any real investment made in the summer, so maybe it is true who knows only the bored of directors it seems

6 out and 1 in? I know he’s keeping expectations low but that is ridiculous.
