The Tigers drew 0-0 with Crystal Palace at the KC Stadium but they dominated possession and had the best chances by far - but not one found the back of the net.

Midfielders Robert Koren and Stephen Quinn both fluffed decent chances, the former missing a first-half sitter, while substitute Aaron Mclean was denied by a brilliant save from Julian Speroni in the dying moments.

"We couldn't have played any better, especially in the first half," Bruce said.

"If I had to be critical over the last five or six months, we are creating some really good chances but we don't take them.

"The chances we had in the first half and the crosses we put in were breathtaking. Unfortunately, Koren will be on 'Christmas Bloopers' that comes around every year. He can join me. I was on there for about 10 years!

"Quinn and Sone Aluko as well. We have had 19 attempts which is a colossal amount. But we haven't taken one and that's key to a game of football. Your team is only as good as its strikers. It concerns me.

"I thought we were the better side. It was a clean sheet. We have nothing to fear in the league."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
