Roy Hodgson has been brought in by Crystal Palace to replace Frank de Boer

No, Hodgson didn't lose to a team coached by a dentist, the smallest nation to ever qualify for a major tournament, but he was unable to prevent Palace falling to a fifth defeat of the season, as Saints claimed a 1-0 victory at Selhurst Park.
Hodgson's predecessor Frank de Boer's three-year contract was terminated the day before Hodgson's hiring, after his fourth consecutive defeat in the English Premier League.
Roy Hodgson (70 years 38 days) became the third manager to take charge of a Premier League game in his 70s after Sir Alex Ferguson and Bobby Robson. In 2014's FIFA World Cup, England were eliminated in the group stage, and past year, following 2-1 defeat against Iceland in Euro 2016, Roy Hodgson announced resignation from the post.
Hodgson is now looking towards the upcoming fixtures - they have got games against Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea coming up - in the hope that Palace can start to build their confidence as a team and put Premier League points on the board.
"I was lucky to manage Barcelona with many outstanding performances but this week has been a lot of goals", said manager Pep Guardiola.
Hodgson said he couldn't fault his players for their commitment. I would rather watch Palace games from the past and concentrate on that.
On the other hand, the Crystal Palace hierarchy will be becoming increasingly concerned by the threat of relegation as the Eagles still lacked any offensive quality or fresh ideas despite the change of manager this week.
'But you take on every job knowing what the benefits and the shortfalls and problems are likely to be and I go into this job with open eyes, with great enthusiasm and a great energy which has certainly been boosted by the fact I've had a bit of time away from the game. "Once the chairman made it clear that he thought that we were the right people, then there has never been a doubt in my mind, and this could be a very good year because if it ends up with us still in the Premier League and the fans happy, then that would make me very happy". "You can always get off to a bad start, what we've got to remember is our fate will be decided after 38 games, not four".
"I'm certain we will pull away from the mire and I'm very confident the players we have here will help us achieve our goal, which is to make certain we don't get relegated".
