Glenn Murray: Backed to return as strong as ever

The 30-goal striker needed an operation after rupturing the ligaments in his knee during the first leg of the play-off semi-final against Brighton and will be out for up to nine months.

He will be hoping to return as a Premier League player after Palace beat their rivals 2-0 in the second leg to set up a winner-takes-all clash with Watford at Wembley next Monday.

Holloway said: "It's an occupational hazard but it's a terrible scenario for him after his best season ever.

"He just went to turn and before you know it he's badly damaged his knee.

"But he will get fit again, he's ready to work hard and he's a very special fella. He doesn't get too high and he doesn't get too low.

"He has totally convinced me that he is going to be fine and in the meantime it gives someone else a chance."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
