Crystal Palace are in a poor run of form, which sees the club just one place above the bottom of the table. They have had just one victory in the league so far, but manager Ian Holloway has said that he is remaining positive about the chances of the club being in the Premier league next season. There are a lot of rumours about the future of Holloway, but co-chairman Steve Parrish have come in support of the former Blackpool man by saying that he will keep them in the Premier league. Holloway has the experience of managing a club for just one season in the Premier league.
He was relegated with Blackpool after just 12 months in the top division. The club had a very difficult summer during which they failed to get most of their transfer targets, but Holloway has been very positive in his approach. Goals are a huge problem for the club, who have failed to score in the last three matches. It does not get any easier for Holloway because his team will be facing the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal in the next three matches. Crystal Palace brought in as much as 15 players in the summer, but they are yet to make an impact.
“I believe in the manager and I believe in his ability to create a winning team. I’ve got every faith in Ian to sort it out. There are a lot of new players and we’re trying to find both a formation and a way of playing. We didn’t get what we deserved in the first few games and that puts us where we are. But we’ve got to keep believing. I know we’re good enough to stay in this league. We’ve just got to pull together and get some results,” said Steve Parrish.
