Liverpool fans react as Roy Hodgson set for Premier League return

It has been a little over 7 years since Roy Hodgson was handed the Liverpool job. And 7 years later, after a torrid time at Anfield, an average stint at West Brom and a disastrous England reign, the 70-year-old is set to replace Frank De Boer as the new man in charge at Crystal Palace.

Now it is fair to say that Hodgson has received his fair share of unwarranted jibes from football fans and the media alike. His career has been marked with a number of very positive seasons in management.

However, unfortunately for the Croydon-born boss, his CV will forever be marked with his England catastrophes and a stint at Liverpool most remembered for the inexplicable signings of the likes of Paul Konchesky and Raul Meireles.

And while Palace fans may be looking for some reassuring words at this time, they certainly won’t be offered any by Liverpool fans, who can only offer dire warnings to the South London club.
