Crystal Palace woes continue with new Boss Roy Hodgson

Crystal Palace woes continue with new Boss Roy Hodgson

The Eagles became the first side to start a season with five straight defeats without scoring a goal as Steven Davis' sixth-minute strike proved to be the difference between the two sides in SE25.

"Today I thought it was a disappointing performance", said Hodgson on what was his first taste of management since England's defeat to Iceland in the last 16 at Euro 2016 almost 15 months ago.

We will bring you updates from his post-match press conference here, below.

"It is painful today and I fear it is going to be painful in some of the moments going forward, but there's no way you can talk yourself out of that and there's no point in making a bold statement that might not be ratified in some way".

Even if Palace improved on their previous showings, they remain bottom of the table and with league fixtures against Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea to follow in the coming weeks.

To get his message across to the players, he just practises and practises that from here to eternity.

Former Fulham and Palace defender Brede Hangeland, who worked under Hodgson at the Cottagers and Norwegian side Viking FK, tells BBC Sport about his old manager's methods, and why they might be perfectly suited to a club like Palace.

But that is his method, and the Palace players are going to have to get used to it, because he will be working them incredibly hard.

If fans thought this start was a tough one, they better hope that Roy Hodgson has a part time gig as a miracle worker.

As a result, De Boer lost his job, giving him the unwanted record of the shortest reign of a manager in terms of matches played in the Premier League era.

"I thought in the first half we were very nervous, people didn't show any real confidence on the ball at all".

He added: "You know that things don't change in two days".

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 global 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.
