Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to voice their displeasure at Roy Hodgson, after the former Liverpool boss’ decision making saw them lose 2-1 to arch rivals Brighton.
The Seagulls’ victory at Selhurst Park means that Chris Hughton’s men have done the double over the Eagles for the first time in 35 years, and also saw Palace perform in toothless fashion as two well-taken goals from Glenn Murray and Anthony Knockaert helped the three points return to the Amex Stadium.
Which player with “no potential” has just been named Crystal Palace’s worst ever January signing? Find out in the video below…
Hodgson strangely dropped Max Meyer and Cheikhou Kouyate, despite the pair impressing away to Burnley last week, whilst his decision to move Wilfried Zaha over to the right after the Ivorian was constantly getting the better of Martin Montoya on the left was baffling – the switch killed Palace’s attacking momentum almost entirely.
The match-winner, Knockaert, was perhaps lucky to be on the pitch after a studs-up challenge on Luka Milivojevic within the first minute, but nevertheless, Palace left a lot to be desired against their rivals.
Let’s see what the Palace fans on Twitter are saying about Hodgson…
I respect Roy Hodgson as his management football careers had been fantastic but he has to go. We need someone young and fresh idea for this club #CPFC 🦅

Exactly what I’ve been saying for a while. Hodgson doesn’t have the ability to get the performances out of these players. https://t.co/xmEXlxxZUr

As for Hodgson, he has arguably the greatest #cpfc squad ever assembled at his disposal yet serves up the 19th best home record in the division and we're still not safe? Needs to disappear in the summer whatever happens… #cpfc

Absolutely disgraceful from Hodgson not starting Kouyate and Meyer. Zero creativity in the middle again. The amount of points lost this term from Hodgson’s cautious tactics is infuriating. Thanks for last season Roy but I’m ready for a change next. #CPFC

Hodgson has to go at the end of the season. Awful midfield to play at home. No idea how to maintain momentum with subs. Always waits til it’s gone and they’re back on top or worse, they’ve scored. Sorry, it’s been great but we need to move on 👋🏻 #cpfc
