Holloway On Draw & Potential Red

Oh he also rallies on the fixture computer as Palace faced two long away trips in the same week.

Speaking to Crystal Palace FC following the game, Holloway - in his normal style - entertained as he summed up the game.

As for the foul on Wilf which brought only a yellow card, he said.

'They said his touch went too far and rolled to the goalie, their fellow didn't play the ball and that ruined his touch. As we all know, he would have probably outpaced him, got past him and then that would have been a goalscoring opportunity, so it was all a bit strange.'

Which it is, a foul is a foul, and if you are the last man it's irrelevant whether the ball is favouring the keeper or not, or do referee's now have a sixth sense and know instinctively whether a keeper might slip, fumble the clearance, miss the ball altogether on their swing because of a bobble, or relax too much thinking the ball will role to their hands.

This refereeing lark should be easy, shame they complicate it.

Holloway was honest about our overall performance though, admitting that Hull had the best of the first half, but he did think we rallied in the second much to our credit.

As for another Holloway quote that will be added to his list.

'It's a madness of a trip that we will now get back at 3am after coming up to Leeds at the weekend. That computer that does these games needs a right good volley! How can this be a midweek fixture? How can that be?'

I doubt the FA will answer that question because apparently there is manual involvement or something 'not entirely random' as I understand it in developing the fixture lists which is why I can't print it, but if it was fully automated...
