Holloway Slams 'Pool

Holloway Slams 'Pool

Ian Holloway was furious with his side after their 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace.

Looking to put on a show to christen the opening of the Jimmy Armfield South Stand, the Seasiders failed miserably in the first forty-five minutes, and Ollie let them know it.

Holloway said: 'In the first half we were like the Dog and Duck, in the second half we were like Real Madrid. We can't go on like that.

'One minute I was pulling pints and collecting subs the next was on a luxury coach.

'At full-time I was at them like an irritated Jack Russell who can't quite get the mutt out of the hole and they deserved that.

'Some of those boys who I started with didn't put a shift in for Blackpool, but some of the lads who I had put on the bench always put a shift in for the team.'

Meanwhile, Palace manager Paul Hart was happy with a point:

'It was certainly a game of two halves.

'If you has asked me before the game if I had taken a draw, I probably would.'
