Broken glass in the Crystal Palace, will the Iceland experience give this club the final meltdown

DATE: 15.09.2016 - SOCCERVOICE - NEWS - SEASON 2016-17

Roy Hodgson is the new manager at Crystal Palace, with the previous man in charge only lasting four games as football again gets shocking signals
 

Watching Crystal Palace away to Burnley was a team on a clear mission. The style of play introduced by Frank de Boer was a way forward, going from the dull and predicted type of football that you often will see with english managers.

Most clubs going forward are appointing great names from abroad or exentric english, and when the struggle starts they, the chairmen, goes back to the traditional defending style of play. Palace is one fantastic example of turning full circle in football philosophy almost every half year.

Ian Holloway took the club back up to the Premier League in 2013, and as seen so many times before with the man that is an expert on the Championship, he was not able to complete another mission in the Premier League.

Holloway was the one bringing Palace back to the top flight after an absence of almost a decade. The style of play under Holloway is a bit like a fairground, entertaining, but not a style well suited to survive in a Premier League relegation battle.

The way forward was to sack Holloway, then it was time for Tony Pulis. Pulis is a good friend of Holloway and their time in football goes back to the days the two played together at Bristol Rovers.

Pulis managed to turn the fortunes around at Palace, but he was not satisfied with the way the club was thinking towards the future and decided to quit after a fantastic time at Selhurst Park.

In with Neil Warnock, a bit simular to Pulis, but few looked at him as a permanent deal for the club. Out with Warnock and in with Pardew. The first months under Pardew as fantastic, a man returning to his former club as a player. Looked like a perfect couple, Palace and Pardew.

But as so many times before, when Pardew starts his "transfer circus" and makes many strange moves in the market, to try to bring the club further he makes it rather a decline as he has done at most clubs he has been in charge of.

Out with Pardew, a manager that likes to play the ball and attack, in with Big Sam, who is a bit of the opposite. Big Sam makes the most out of his time with Palace and stear the club to safety.

The changes made has been many in recent seasons, talking about managers at Crystal Palace. The fact that Frank de Boer was replaced by Roy Hodgson makes you start to wonder how crazy this football world has become or if you like, have always been.

Hodgson managed to get England to both the World Cup and the Euro's in his time in charge, but to appoint a 70 year old man as the next man in charge at Crystal Palace was a big surprise, and the full circle in style of football is again to be installed at Selhurst Park.

You can see that times have been a bit turbulent at Palace and to appoint one former England coach, getting sloughtered by Iceland, looks like going back in time and try to solve something that looked on the right path, despite getting a difficult start.

Feeling sorry for de Boer, who can soon be back in football with another team. His approach to the game is one that we really would like to see getting noticed, a manager of the future.

A lot of broken glass in the Crystal Palace. Time to set a future in style of play and organisation. Will the appointment of Roy Hodgson either be a final meltdown and a relegation, or will it again be a place for a survival and setting a new course forward.

We believe that the appointment of Roy Hodgson is a safe one and that he will manage to keep Palace in the PL. His knowledge of the game and how to organise teams will give fans of this club another season in the holy land, but again cannot really understand what the "masterplan" is down at Selhurst Park.
