Ollie: I must control emotions

Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway admits he must keep his emotions in check after being charged with improper conduct by the Football Association.

Last Updated: 22/08/13 at 17:57 Post Comment

Holloway hit out at match officials following Palace's defeat against Tottenham, the former Blackpool man incensed by the referee's failure to spot what he viewed as a deliberate foul by Nacer Chadli on Stephen Dobbie.

Holloway is quoted as saying on the club's official Twitter feed: "I know what I meant on Saturday, it has cost me some money and I need to learn quickly how to deal with things that happen.

"All my life I have tried to be an ambassador for this game and I will continue to do so, but just need to learn when and what to say.

"I don't like losing and don't like not getting my own way. At times I get too

emotional and say too much. Oh well, it's cost me.

"I have been on the end of bad decisions in this league before that have cost us, but I have to let it go and move on."

Following the match, Holloway said: "It's going to be a long, hard season for me with these people (referees). I had this with Blackpool. Certain clubs get fouls and others don't."

Holloway has until 4pm on Friday to respond to the charges that were issued on Tuesday.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
