Holloway's Future Uncertain Following Fulham Thrashing
Guardian, October 22nd, 2013 1:48PM

TAGS:  england


Ian Holloway refused to talk about his future at Crystal Palace after Fulham thrashed his team, 4-1, at Selhurst Park on Monday. Holloway is now set to meet with Palace chairman Steve Parrish on Tuesday amid growing uncertainty about his future as head coach. Palace is currently 19th in the Premier League table with just three points from eight games.

After the match with Fulham, Holloway became testy when questioned about his future. "I'm not talking about my future at this football club,” he snapped. “Me and the chairman signed all these players together in the summer and he always comes down after a game to have a chat. It was just a bit longer this time because I spent longer with the players trying to pick them up." Holloway admitted that Palace had “had the stuffing knocked out of them” by two fantastic first-half Fulham goals. He added that he would be speaking with Parrish today, as well.

Even Fulham’s Pajtim Kasami acknowledged that his “unbelievable” goal was the best of his career. Kasami scored Fulham’s first with a brilliant chest control and volley from a Sascha Rieter pass, while Steve Sidwell struck another excellent volley for Fulham on the stroke of halftime. Second half goals from Dimitar Berbatov and Phillipe Senderos sealed the points for Fulham, and eased the pressure on coach Martin Jol.
