Maybe some of the Roy Hodgson knockers will now understand the cautious tactics he has used, the most important factor for Palace and Roy was safety in avoiding relegation which incredibly he achieved in his First season, and now is achieving the same.
And when you are operationg with not the strongest of squads and even more amazingly a lot of that time without a striker makes his achievements very special, and when we read abuse directed at him is disgraceful. If given the financial backing to bring in the players that he has asked for then we might have seen a very playing style employed, to achieve what he has with what he has had at his disposal deserves praise and not the personal critisim he has had to endure on here.
In all honesty RH on joining a club that was in turmoil, has since made CPFC a well respected and organised unit with a defence that many other clubs would long to have at their disposal. Personally i have nothing but the utmost respect for what he has achieved under very difficult circumstances which may be appreciated at some time in the future.

I think if we do stay up we will probably be in a stronger position than at the end of last season as we have spent thriftily this season and cut our wage bill. Getting that striker on a permanent or I guess a season long loan is crucial though.

Spot on.

The football at times can be very good, sometimes it can be very negative but the players are sticking to a disciplined system and the players like I have said before are playing for him. I have never questioned the commitment from the players even though the results have not what we would have liked but we do have a decent team and only thing that has been lacking has been goals or being clinical. Yesterday we did not play well but we were clinical but there have been many times this season when that has happened to us.

We need one for a full season though so that needs addressing again in the summer. Not sure if there is chance of getting Michy on a permanent or a season loan. Maybe Mitrovic is another option?

As long as we create bucket loads of chances and concede little what more can Hodgson do. He can't put the ball in the net for us. He has done everything right as a manager for us in all fairness. He has spent far less and had injury plagued squad played half a season with no striker.

In practice, it's hard to leave out ever present McArthur and improving Schlupp.

Results certainly change opinions.

We created far better against West Ham but poor finishing meant we only drew, but when you take your chances the mood changes dramatically.

3 teams should be higher up the table based on what they have created and offered up to their opponents in each game, Leicester, Palace and Southampton.

The result at the weekend was brilliant, individual players played well and crucially when we had an opportunity to get a shot away it was generally on target and went in as was the case away at Man City. We will not go down this season, Fulham and Huddersfield are doomed and i think Cardiff will struggle from now on in, bu are we getting teh best out of our current squad? I am not sure we are.

If we have a striker till the end of the season atleast I will be happy. We havent had one for about 2 years. Secure safety and go for the FA Cup.

Batshuayi looks like he is having fun and just wants to play. Who knows, depends what happens with Sarri at Chelsea.

Didn't get carried away at the weekend like many did, the result did not reflect the game. Unfortunately lasts nights did, back to not taking our chances and get beaten by what was the poorest man Utd team we have faced for many years.

Kept with the same team (that was dreadful 1st half at the weekend) despite very different opposition, Meyer changes the game, we are on top and he messes about at LB for a substitution instead of making changes to help go forward. Chasing the game he brings Benteke on, but takes off the other striker! Why?

As someone who used to post on here said to me last night, we win games despite him because we have quality players. Finding it hard to disagree with that at times.
