Roy Hodgson makes losing start as Palace slump to Southampton defeat

But his time in charge of England ended with a shock defeat by outsiders Iceland that saw the team knocked out of Euro 2016.

Sitting bottom of the league, Palace visit Manchester City next week before travelling to Old Trafford to face Manchester Untied.

Saints unsurprisingly looked the more confident but Palace twice almost equalised before the half-hour mark, Christian Benteke denied by a point-blank block by Forster and Ruben Loftus-Cheek firing just wide of the left-hand post. "But I don't look at four matches". "This season I will have 34 parties".

"We've had a bad start". He has managed four Premier League clubs - Blackburn Rovers, Fulham FC, Liverpool and West Bromwich, having 34.72 % win rate in Premier League. I haven't given many team talks, but the one point I did make to the players is that our focus is on May.

Under De Boer, Palace had the most possession in their other two home ties (a 2-0 loss to Swansea and a 3-0 loss to Huddersfield), so this was a change. But the confidence only comes when you start playing well, seeing the work that you're trying to do pay off, in particular in terms of results.

"So there's no reason why something that's been very successful in the past cant be continued and developed further".

Cristiano Ronaldo Thought He Knew Better Than Goal Line Technology
Every year, the Champions League's group stage gives us a couple of great matches. His second came from the penalty spot early in the second half.

He received a warm welcome from the Palace fans when he walked along the touchline to take his place in the home dug-out.

Hodgson, whose first game in charge will be against Southampton on Saturday, had graduated through the youth team ranks at Palace in the 1960s and has spoken of his pride at a homecoming.

"Once the chairman made it clear that he thought we were the right people, there was never a doubt in my mind".

Roy Hodgson has been appointed the new manager of Crystal Palace, the English Premier League club announced Tuesday.

Although staff and players found Hodgson's enthusiasm infectious, especially on the training ground, where there was a sense he could not have been in a happier place (it is tempting to think he is much better suited to club rather than worldwide management on that point alone), he also had an edge to him and was not afraid to light the fuse when things were not done right.
