And that unwanted record continued as Hodgson endured a frustrating first game, with Steven Davis' early goal deciding the match in a 1-0 Saints victory. Palace were set up to soak up pressure and hoof the ball up to Christian Benteke. A more pure and attractive brand of play was expected.

But for every disappointment he endured with England and other sides, there have been plenty of highlights during a long and distinguished career.

That season saw Newcastle open the campaign with: Arsenal 2 Newcastle 0, Newcastle 0 West Ham 0, Bolton 2 Newcastle 0, Newcastle 0 Manchester United 2...before then Charles N'Zogbia scored in the 78th minute to rescue a point in a 1-1 home draw with Fulham.

Davis to score in an away win was an 8/1 shot.

"There's no lack of attitude from the players and wanting to do things and wanting to work and wanting to become better as a team and individuals".

He told the official Palace website: "This is very much the club of my boyhood, and I remember in my youth watching the club from the terraces at the Holmesdale Road end which gave me such fond memories".

"The desire was there but unfortunately it was a frantic desire, it was a desire where you're chasing and hoping, not a desire where you're in control and moving the ball around well and causing the opponents lots of problems".

"We've got to try very hard to make certain that people don't dig themselves into a grave".

"We now have make sure we don't dig ourselves into a grave". "So, it's painful today, and I fear it is going to be painful in some of the moments going forward".

"They created chances in the first half and pressed higher in the second but in general we controlled the game". I can't deny that we are in a hole and I can't change the fixtures that are ahead.

"To win on this pitch is not easy, for this reason we have to be really happy".

New Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson said on Friday he is convinced the struggling club can survive in the Premier League despite a woeful start to the season that has left them rock-bottom.

After a modest playing career in England, Hodgson became manager of lowly Swedish side Halmstad in 1976 and went on to produce one of the most remarkable feats in the country's football history, guiding the team to the league title a year after narrowly escaping relegation.
