Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has insisted that memories should be jogged in relation to fans who are criticising Steve Parish and the club’s board.


Hodgson saw his side take another step backwards on Saturday with a comprehensive 4-1 defeat away at Brighton in the Premier League.


Some Palace fans are hugely unhappy with how the club is being run and have taken aim at the club’s board and chairman Parish, with banners displayed.




For Hodgson, the criticism is misplaced and he insists that memories amongst critical fans should be jogged given what Parish has done for the club, with Premier League status key.


“I think Steve Parish has done a fantastic job for the club”, Hodgson, asked about the banners protesting the club’s board, told Sky Sports.



“People’s memories should be jogged. The club was in awful state before he came.


“They turned them around and got us into the Premier League. The club is still there and fighting to stay there.



“It is not for me to talk about the club structure and ownership.


“If you ask me personally as someone working for Steve Parish and the club I think it is very harsh that people are putting banners in that way and trying to blame him for the fact we lost to Brighton.”


Hodgson continues to be under pressure at Crystal Palace amid a sustained run of poor form at Selhurst Park.


Palace have now not won a game on the road since a visit to strugglers Burnley at the start of November.
