Crystal Palace have sacked Franck de Boer after four consecutive defeats in the Premier League.
And all reports suggest they’re about to appoint Roy Hodgson in his place…
Hodgson is widely regarded as the worst Liverpool manager in our history, sacked after six months with the club genuinely in a relegation battle.
He did just as badly for England, infamously losing to Iceland in the Euro 2016 Last 16.
Why Palace have gone from a continental boss with a footballing philosophy to an outdated long-ball merchant is anyone’s guess – but maybe it’ll work…
Just as long as FSG don’t bring him back to replace Jurgen Klopp, we don’t mind!
Not sure what’s more ridiculous. Sacking De Boer after 4 games or giving the job to Hodgson.

The best thing about Roy Hodgson becoming Palace manager is that he and Sammy Lee can recreate the greatest footballing photo of all time. pic.twitter.com/LYCLJX0ksE

“We need a long-term, fresh, modern philosophy that will take the club forward, Frank hasn’t got it”

A reminder of how Roy Hodgson voted in the 2014 Ballon d’Or:
1. Javier Mascherano
2. Philipp Lahm
3. Manuel Neuer

Imagine sacking your manager after 4 games and thinking replacing him with Roy Hodgson is a good idea
