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."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
