EAGLE-EYED VIEW: Ian Holloway wrong to say Crystal Palace played well at Millwall

WELL, it's finally happened. He's cracked. Holloway has lost the plot.

I don't know what game Ollie was watching on Tuesday night as the Eagles made the short journey across to the Den to face Millwall, but he's either the most sarcastic man on the planet, or his senses have taken a leave of absence.

"We were definitely a threat. We looked solid, we broke well and every one of my team, I thought, played really well," he told reporters after the game.

Actually, we didn't play really well. It was more hot potato than football. You'd struggle to find a game this season in which we found it more difficult to keep possession of the ball.

It's not that Millwall did well in pressuring us quickly and forcing us into making those mistakes – not that it didn't happen at all – but we were our own worst enemy on the night, as we have been for much of this poor run of form, with KG in particular having a poor game in the middle of the park.

"I was warned about… the rivalry, but what a fantastic advert for this division," he said.

Yeah, if the aim of the advertising campaign was to make sure nobody watched Championship football – ever.

Even if I'm being a little harsh in terms of our performance, one thing no one can argue for is that game being used to advocate the league, unless, of course, scrappy 0-0 draws in which very little football is played is what people are after these days.

I could've taken more joy in watching the kids to my right in the Millwall stand upping the bracket and giving it the big I AM (parents must be so proud); if I could only pull my eyes away from the car crash route-one football game unfolding in front of me.
