Thank you for everything, Roy ❤️💙
Hodgson is now 73-years-old, so this could well be the end of his managerial career, one which began way back in 1976, or ten years before any of his current crop of Palace players were born.
His impending exit made today’s clash with Arsenal an emotional one for Hodgson, with it being the last game that he will ever manage at Selhurst Park, the home of his beloved club.
