Roy Hodgson’s 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 failing to score a single goal under Frank De Boar.
Despite the fairly awful start, Hodgson was able to guide the Eagles to a pretty comfortable 11th place finish that term.
The former England boss also set a Premier League record that year as Palace became the first Premier League side 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 was able to earn the Londoners 49 points during the 2018/19 season, which is their highest PL points total in a 38-game season.
Safety was also achieved fairly comfortably in 2019/20, whilst their status as a top-flight club has to been secured this term as well, with Palace currently sat on 41 points with three games still to play.
Hodgson to leave Palace
Despite doing a solid job during his stint at Crystal Palace, Hodgson’s time at Selhurst Park looks to be up.
His current contract with the club will run out in the summer.
And now, the Evening Standard are reporting that Palace are preparing to announce Hodgson’s departure earlier than expected.
The reason for this is said to be to allow fans the chance to pay tribute to their boss at their final home game of the season, which takes place against Arsenal on Wednesday the 19th of May:
