A club in crisis?

BBC Sport's Phil McNulty has been answering your questions on all things Premier League.

Strata: Phil, Crystal Palace - do you believe the fans have a case to claim their club is in crisis?

Phil: Crisis is a strong word but there is no doubt there is a lot of very understandable unrest around Palace at the moment. There seems to be a sense of aimless drift at Palace and around manager Roy Hodgson at the moment, with people effectively waiting for the end of his reign, whether it comes at the of the season or sooner.

Poor results and performances are, quite rightly, increasing the sense of worry and the problem with drifting is that you can suddenly find yourself drifting into real trouble then struggle to get out of it.

I agree these are very troubling times for Palace and their fans. They should be doing a lot better.
