Crystal Palace 0 Southampton 1: Roy Hodgson's first game ends in defeat

Roy Hodgson

Social media users have this afternoon taken to Twitter to voice their opinions on Crystal Palace's disappointing first-half display versus Southampton.

"We controlled the ball and that is something that we need because we have the quality of players to keep the ball and dominate the game".

Nice Roy was humiliated in Nice, but more than a year after the Fundamentally Hilarious conflating of the Brexit vote and England's Euros exit to Iceland, Hodgson is back in English football.

It is now five games without a goal, or a point for Crystal Palace this season after a 1-0 defeat to Southampton at Selhurst Park.

- The Eagles have failed to find the back of the net in six consecutive league games for the first since January 1995 (a run of nine), with three different managers taking charge during this run (Sam Allardyce, Frank de Boer and Roy Hodgson).

He is also the seventh manager of Crystal Palace in the past six years. If Palace believe in him as players and as a team, they will be very, very hard to play against after a while.

Palace's long wait for a first league goal of the season could have ended 10 minutes after Saints went ahead through Davis when Benteke met Loftus-Cheek's low cross at the near post but Forster got his body in the way to make the save. That being said, they are still not playing well and are up against some strong opposition in Southampton. The venue of the match is at Selhurst Park.

China orders cryptocurrency exchanges to shut down
Cryptocurrency is a new market , and governments are still struggling to figure out how to regulate this new store of value. The notice was signed by the Beijing city group in charge of overseeing internet finance risks and circulated online.

The Saints lost at home last week at the hands of Watford.

Hodgson will want results straight away, of course, but I have looked at Palace's schedule and he does not have the easiest of starts.

It means that Palace still sit rock bottom of the Premier League after five games - and still haven't even scored a goal.

"The more we work together the better, I think, we will become".

"We didn't push up to the ball as well as we would have liked and were perhaps a bit cautious, the midfield players dropping too deep and giving them too much time on the ball", he told Sky Sports.

Palace now face a daunting fixture list that sees them face Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea in their next three league games and Hodgson has warned that things may get worse still before they get better.
