Ian Holloway: Felt Crystal Palace deserved a draw at Watford

Goals from Almen Abdi and Nathaniel Chalobah put the home side in control before Peter Ramage prodded home on 66 and Kevin Phillips completed the Palace comeback four minutes later with a cool finish.

But Holloway could not help being critical of Watford's recruitment policy, which has seen them loan several players from Italian club Udinese who have the same Italian owners.

"I need some foreign scouts, or to befriend a big club like they have, and to nick all their players," he said.

"They've got nine from one club! It's a loophole and that's wrong. Unlimited foreign loans? It can't be right.

"I thought we were too worried about stopping them. I want to attack, so I thoroughly enjoyed the second half. We got what we deserved and maybe by the end we could have nicked something else.

"What we need from now on are some second half performances in the first half."

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.
