Ian Holloway: Watched from the stands as his new Crystal Palace side beat Blackb

Holloway was unveiled to supporters at half-time, having joined from Blackpool on a four-and-a-half-year deal earlier in the day, and watched from the stands as Glenn Murray's double moved the Eagles up to third.

"How lucky are we to see a team like this? It's fantastic," he said to the crowd. "I think I have got goosebumps on the back of my neck to get an opportunity like this.

"People ask me why I have come here but the board sold me their dream about what they want for their club and with their energy and my energy let's hope we can all be very happy."

Palace caretaker manager Curtis Fleming admitted he was unsure if he would join former boss Dougie Freedman at Bolton or stay at Selhurst Park but was thrilled with the performance.

"They were fantastic," he said. "I think they should be playing with confidence but we should concentrate on what we do and not get carried away. Everyone has to work hard.

"Ian came in before the match. He was lively, as he is, and I think the lads quite enjoyed it and they will quite enjoy working with him."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
