Crystal Palace boss addresses squad playing time: You don't change a winning formula

CRYSTAL Palace boss Neil Warnock has addressed the issue of trying to keep everyone in his large squad happy following the loan departure of Jonny Williams. The likes of Brede Hangeland, Barry Bannan and Paddy McCarthy have also been in and out of Warnock's matchday squads in recent weeks. Bannan in particular is believed to be frustrated with a lack of game-time despite impressing in the League Cup games against Walsall and Newcastle United in the last four or five weeks. However, Warnock admits it's tough for him to change a "winning formula" after watching his side take eight points in his first four matches in the Premier League. "Everybody wants to play and that's the job of being a manager at this level," said the boss. "You've got to keep them happy and if they aren't happy you eventually let them go anyhow. "They are happy to play games but some can't get in at the moment. When you lose games that when they're banging on your door. "Where would any of these players play? Where would Hangeland play? Where would Bannan play at the minute? "I think you've got to pick your time to knock on the manager's door, if I'm honest. "What can you say to people like Hangeland? You pick your side and they do well and you can keep them. "He's a very good pro. He was one of the first to congratulate us with the result and he trains very, very hard. "It's the same conversation to people like Bannan. They all want to be playing but unfortunately at the moment you don't change a winning formula. "Next week we'll have a proper game for these guys because they have to do more than games. "It's the same for Andy Johnson. We have to make sure we look after these players as they are as important to the first team that's actually turning out. "We're going to need everybody between now and the end of the season."
