Roy Hodgsonâs Crystal Palace stint
Roy Hodgson took the reins at Crystal Palace in September of 2017.
Hodgson took over a Palace side who had lost their first four games of the season, whilst having failed to score a single goal under Frank De Boer.
Despite their awful start, though, Hodgson was able to guide the Eagles to a pretty comfortable 11th place Premier League finish that term.
The former England boss also set a record, as Palace became the first Premier League club to survive relegation after losing their opening seven games.
The following campaign then saw Hodgson set another record, this time a Palace one, as he guided the Londoners to 49 points, their highest PL total in a 38-game season.
Safety was also achieved fairly comfortably last season, whilst the club’s status as a top-flight outfit has since been secured this term, too, with Palace currently sitting on 41 points with three games to play.
Hodgson to leave Palace
Despite having done a solid job to date at Selhurst Park, though, Hodgsonâs time now looks to be up.
His current contract with Palace will run out in the summer.
And the Evening Standard have revealed that the Eagles are preparing to announce Hodgsonâs departure earlier than expected.
This comes in a bid to allow fans the chance to pay tribute to their boss at the club’s final home game of the season, a meeting with Arsenal on Wednesday the 19th of May:
