Ian Holloway: Disappointed by Palace's stuttering form

The Eagles have not won in five games - and not scored in four - to slip eight points off the automatic promotion pace.

A 0-0 draw against lowly Barnsley on Saturday summed up their recent form, but Holloway feels all that is missing is a goal.

"The games are slipping away and we wanted something slightly better than this," said the Selhurst Park boss.

"But I can't ask for anything more other than sticking the ball in the net.

"Confidence is a very simple thing but it's a very hard thing to get it. If I could bottle it and sell it I'd be a multi-millionaire.

"The way the last couple of games have gone it's hard for the lads to have that so we're trying to reinforce that."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
