Roy Hodgson Can Make Palace A Top 10 Side

This reasoned article is looking at the bigger picture and not basing Palace's season on our disastrous start with a weakened team.

There are 30 games to go and that is plenty of time for Palace to turn their season around with having their star players back making them a completely different team to play against as Chelsea found out.

Nice to see the media looking at the bigger picture and not just judging Roy Hodgson on the Iceland result.

If Roy can get us anywhere in the top 17 I'll be happy!

Lets get out of the relegation zone first. That may well be the extent of our achievements this season.

If you actually read it it says we can become a top 10 side but still has the aim this season of survival.

We'd all accept a 17th placed finish now for this season - I'd snap your hands off for that. Then hopefully we can remove the dead wood from the squad and being in some quality. We've practically started the season with a 20 man squad, that's how weak our squad is this season, so I'm sure we can do better in future.

But I think it's becoming increasingly difficult for most clubs to consider themselves an established premier league club these days - unless you are one of the top 6, then pretty much any club could go down if everything went against them. As we've seen, it only takes ones awful managerial appointment - as we had with FDB - to put clubs like us in grave danger. Swansea felt like an established premier league club until they made some bad managerial choices and now they are going to continue to struggle by the looks of it.

I'm not sure we'll ever be a comfortable premier league club but I don't see any reason why we can't get close to stoke in terms of their consistency.

I am naturally pessimistic so this was a good read and gives me a lift like most of your posts.

Is Slovak any good for you?

People forget about Hart's performance during that game against Iceland. We may as well have just rolled a wheelie bin into the middle of the penalty area that day.

Look everyone knows how unfair it is that Palace got injuries. And we had some tough games. We will sweep Burnley, Huddersfield and Swansea under the carpet. But yeah, if we stay up I am sure SP will arrange a jolly in Europe for the lads

Look at Everton, established Premier League club, Ł150 million just spunked on players, massive wage bill, poor and boring football with a manager who they thought was world class, it's not as easy as some people on here think is it.
