Should hold out for the Chelsea gig

Be interesting to see how Warnock does. I can’t believe we’re still talking about him as a football manager in the year 2024.

Can't believe he's taking a job so far from Cornwall

Hope John Eustace does well. Birmingham treated him really badly when he had done a more than decent job there.

Crystal Palace fail with push to take Ipswich manager Kieran McKenna
Palace hope he can be persuaded to join in the summer
Parish aims to keep Hodgson until then but could act sooner

Crystal Palace have been frustrated in attempts to persuade Kieran ­McKenna to replace Roy Hodgson but hope the Ipswich manager could take over at the end of the season.

Hodgson remains under pressure after the late defeat by Chelsea on Monday left Palace five points clear of the relegation zone before their trip to 18th-placed Everton next Monday.

The Palace chairman, Steve ­Parish, is understood to have spoken to ­McKenna’s representatives but ­McKenna is believed to be unwilling to consider leaving while his side, in fourth place, are challenging for promotion in the Championship.

Parish is a long-term admirer of the 37-year-old former ­Manchester United assistant, who moved to Portman Road in December 2021 and signed a new four-year contract after leading Ipswich to promotion last season. Any move for McKenna, who is also thought to be a contender to take over at West Ham should they not renew David Moyes’s contract at the end of the season, would require a club to pay significant compensation.

Parish would prefer to wait until the summer before ­replacing ­Hodgson but has contemplated ­sacking the 76-year-old on more than one occasion during a run of four wins in the past 18 league games that has dragged Palace into a relegation battle. He is understood to have sounded out several candidates in the past few weeks, including the former Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper and Julen Lopetegui, formerly of Wolves.

A series of banners at Selhurst Park criticising the ownership for “weak club culture and direction” were held up by a section of supporters during the televised game against Chelsea and are unlikely to have gone down well in the boardroom after similar banners were displayed during the 4-1 defeat against Palace’s arch‑rivals Brighton and a 5-0 ­thrashing at Arsenal.

Monday’s trip to Goodison Park – where Palace have not won since September 2014 – and the home game against Burnley could prove vital for Hodgson’s future given they are against sides in the bottom three.

Hodgson said after the Chelsea defeat: “I want to emphasise that there’s no complacency here … But if the question is: ‘Do I think that this group of players are good enough to get us out now?’ I do. I think they showed a lot [against Chelsea] which gives me even more faith and belief.”

Keeping Woy till the summer would help us massively

If he's not actually ill then it's pretty poor that they've used that as an excuse to cancel the press conference today.

He's maybe doing the managerial equivalent of what players do when they put in a red card challenge then stay down getting treatment for 10 minutes hoping the ref forgets to send them off. :)

Always works.

Maybe just a case of bad timing, does seem rather callous if true!

On a serious note, hopefully he is ok.

Certainly looks a bit awkward for them now, especially if they were all set to sack him and reveal the new manager. Maybe it helps them too, they can paint as Roy's retired on ill health grounds and make it look like he's left on his own terms. No one will believe them but it's still better than sacking him while he's in hospital as I'd imagine they're keen to get the new guy in.
