Last quote by Roy Hodgson

He [Zaha] is a top-class player, he has been a talisman for Palace in the past. But football is a team game, it's unfair to suggest that it's down to one man to get us out of the mess we are in. I am hoping we'll get another 30 performances like that again.feedback

Roy Hodgson quotes

Sep 23 2017

We hope, with his quality and his leadership qualities, he helps us move away from the relegation zone.feedback

Sep 23 2017

We should be embracing the challenge.feedback

Sep 22 2017

We'll have to live with people writing us off and dooming us. Especially if these next three results don't go our way. Realistically, I can't deny that there's a risk of that because we are playing the top teams who are not losing to anybody, not even against the teams in their particular portion of the league. But I refuse to believe that we're doomed. I am sure if I say to him 'look, are you worried about not scoring goals?' He would tell me 'no I am not worried because that is the way it is'. Actions are everything. I am not bad with words, but I don't believe in words very much.feedback

Christian will score goals. It's like all centre-forwards, Harry Kane every year gets major questions why is he not scoring in August and then all of a sudden in September he starts smashing them in from all angles. We hope that will be the same with Christian. When he gets one he will get more, I'm sure.feedback

Sep 22 2017

If it is as simple as he needs a first goal to be the catalyst to bring more goals, you just have to keep working and hope that goal will come. There is nothing you can say that will change that. There are things you can do and we are doing what we can. He's such a quality player, I'm sure he will score.feedback

Sep 22 2017

Judging the way he is training, judging the way he is playing, the things he is trying to do, seeing his mood which is buoyant, I would take more faith in that really than anything that he says.feedback

Sep 22 2017

You're quite right in bringing the Fulham example up in that. We were doomed, week after week. We just kept believing and, from that, the team catapulted forward.feedback

Sep 17 2017

You can't just go round to people all the time saying, You'll be OK, you'll be fine, that was all right, bad luck', because they need more than that. What you have to have is, Look, what we're doing here, or what you're doing there, that's not what we want, that's not good enough.feedback

Sep 17 2017

I did not walk in here as Christian Gross once did and say, I've come on the train. I didn't say I'm a local boy, you told me, As a local boy you must be pleased to be back. What do you want me to say? That I'm not a local boy? Because I am.feedback

Sep 17 2017

I'm not the one waving that flag, and it's not because I was a local boy I was given a job – it's because the hierarchy thinks I can do the job, and I'm sure had I been from somewhere far, far from Croydon they wouldn't have said, We can't take him, he's not a Croydon boy. That's not me playing that one up.feedback

Sep 16 2017

I am not suggesting the work we do on the training field will suddenly produce two or three Messis or Ronaldos. We need to improve our strengths and maybe sometimes cover up the weaknesses. Psychologically we have a fight on our hands but we will take that fight on.feedback

Sep 15 2017

So anything which has been successful in the past can be continued and one always hopes, develops further.feedback

Sep 15 2017

I have to get to know the players better and know what our best team is. But what I will say is that there a lot of players here who have been at the club a long time who have had a lot of success, helping the club into the Premier League and then keeping them up. One I'm hoping brings joy to the fans of Crystal Palace. That would be special because I am a Croydon boy and didn't leave here until I was 24 years of age.feedback

Sep 15 2017

I think I have a clear idea of what they're good at and what they can do, so our style needs to be one that helps us win football matches.feedback

Sep 15 2017

I have seen Palace progress and also many of the players who are still here and improved.feedback

Sep 15 2017

It's the same group of players. It might even be a slightly improved group given certain signings. So I'm confident they won't let the fans down and I'm also confident, strangely enough, albeit I have no right to say this, that the fans will stay with us, back the team, suffer and share our plight. But they won't abandon us.feedback

Sep 15 2017

Careers are defined by small moments and nothing I can say or do will change that. Nothing has changed in the sense that football is a results-based business. That was the case many years ago. But with the amount of money in the Premier League, that side of it is exacerbated. My job is to come here, do a good job every day on that training field and make certain this team recovers the confidence it's lost after four straight defeats. To get themselves back on the track they were on at the end of last year and the year before that.feedback

Sep 15 2017

I tend to see it as something which reflects the pressures on owners to keep satisfying the fans and to keep their teams in the league. It's something which is, quite simply, a fact of life.feedback

Sep 14 2017

Certain coaches fit certain clubs. And I think if you look at what Roy did at Fulham and West Brom, and you look at Palace and the type of coaches that they've had, from [Alan] Pardew to [Tony] Pulis and [Sam] Allardyce – and Roy would be above them for me in terms of his coaching ability – they all work at the fundamentals of the game. Roy, I think, will do a really good job at Palace. And I'm delighted for him, because I'd hate for his career to have been remembered for what happened with England last summer.feedback

Sep 12 2017

I am very excited to be back in club football and it is a long while since I have enjoyed the day to day sessions of training.feedback

Sep 12 2017

I've always got sympathy for managers who lose their jobs but it's a fact of life. It's not my business, it's the business of the club. I'm pleased that they've turned to me and allowed me to take the job on.feedback

Aug 24 2017

One hopes for his sake and the country's sake that situation won't arise, but I feel sure if it came to that scenario and Gareth went to him and said, We're in a terrible mess here and we really need you, will you come out retirement?' then I would be very surprised if Wayne didn't say, Yes'. But I don't know, I'm second guessing.feedback

Aug 24 2017 - Russia

If it was put to him in that way, I know how much this country does mean to him in terms of playing international football.feedback

Aug 24 2017 - Russia

I think he will have lots of regrets, as he knows how good this group of players that have been put together over the last two or three years can be and will be. He may think maybe in Russia they will show that and it would be nice to be there.feedback

Aug 24 2017

He's not a guy who will make that decision lightly and playing for England meant so much to him over the years.feedback

Aug 24 2017

All the more credit to him that he's made the decision based on his club football. You shouldn't talk someone out of that.feedback

Jul 24 2017 - Champions League

The message I'd give coaches is not to take it personally and not regard it as a reflection on their abilities. When the English club looks, sees a manager with Champions League wins on a CV and the other guy has been managing a Scottish club, unfortunately those CVs as far as owners are concerned don't match up.feedback

Jul 24 2017

I would put it down purely to the fact there was a very talented period of Scottish managers, led of course by Sir Alex – no doubt that spawned opportunities for others. There were also very, very good Scottish players [in England] who finished tremendous playing careers by going on to become managers. I don't really see anything in it other than maybe that was a golden generation.feedback

Jul 24 2017 - Scottish independence

I don't think you can link managers in the Premier League to quality of coaching in Scotland or courses offered there. The Premier League is awash with money. Every time a club there seeks a manager it doesn't look, as in the past, to the British Isles; it looks to the whole world. There are only 20 clubs in an enormous Premier League market. But it's nothing to do with the coaching; both the English and Scottish Uefa Pro Licences are amongst the most highly regarded in Europe.feedback

Jul 22 2017

He's a risky passer, a midfielder who will turn with the ball, take players on and attempt a shot from 20 yards. If he gets to a club where they buy him for what he can do and not what he can't do, someone will end up with a very good player.feedback

Jul 22 2017

He's definitely a talent. He'll win some games for his club and for England, too.feedback

Jul 22 2017

Yes he is, because of the pressures we put on people.feedback

Jul 22 2017

But there are lots of players who can't produce that level of ability. If he gets to a club where they buy him for what he can do and not what he can't do, someone will end up with a very good player.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - World Cup

I certainly didn't feel suicidal and I certainly didn't feel self-doubt either because I think probably the four years, especially the last two years after the World Cup, fashioning a team from a very young group of players, many of whom weren't even in their club side, and playing the sort of football we were capable of playing – we were playing very, very well. I am very, very proud of that achievement. I think it is probably the best work, in many ways, that I did or have done so far.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - World Cup

People should be ashamed of those things. Why shouldn't Harry Kane take corners? If he happens to be the best striker of a ball in the team and gives you the best delivery why shouldn't he do it?feedback

Jun 28 2016

I would've loved to stay on for another two years, however I'm pragmatic and know that we are in the results business. My contract was always up after the Euros, so now is the time for someone else to oversee the progress of this young, hungry, extremely talented group of players.feedback

Aug 28 2014

I've got to judge him on the two years I've been with him. It's not for me to look back too much and whatever misdemeanours the player may have had. In the two years with me I've had no reason whatsoever to question anything about his character or desire to play for his country or his wholehearted willingness to offer himself in every situation.feedback

Aug 28 2014

I'm not concerned about anything else, but he has that baggage with him and he will have to accept that as an added part of the pressure.feedback

Aug 28 2014

I've had a long conversation with him and he's prepared to accept the pressures that the England captaincy brings. It's important that the player wants to take on that enormous responsibility.feedback

Aug 28 2014 - Manchester United

I gave it a lot of thought but Wayne is an obvious choice. He deserves it – his commitment to the cause, his experience. He has captained England in the past and, of course, he has that responsibility at Manchester United now.feedback

Jun 19 2014

Our chances are unbelievably slim. We needed a result today, a draw or a victory, and we didn't get it.feedback

Jun 19 2014

Two chances came his way. As the top player he is, he took both chances – and that's probably ended our chances of staying in the competition.feedback

Oct 14 2013

Playing at Wembley in front of 90,000 people with, with a big support from your own crowd as well, will be very inspiring and it gives you nothing to lose.feedback

Jun 25 2012

I think I made my views on penalty taking very clear. It's like having a virtual reality hole for the Open Championship. What can possibly prepare you for the real thing? We did everything to prepare, but it doesn't change the fact that Pirlo did that remarkable Panenka chip whereas our players tried the penalties as they practised. If we can't beat teams in 90 minutes, we have to get better at penalty shoot-outs.feedback

Jun 25 2012

We have to be optimistic, we have to believe, see the positive and ignore the fact that we have not gone further than the quarter finals but take a small degree of satisfaction that we gave it our best shot.feedback
