Holloway struggling with window

Ian Holloway is too busy trying to improve his Crystal Palace squad to get excited about the start of the new Barclays Premier League season.

I'm telling you the truth, what am I excited about?. Not having a squad as big as the others? This is reality now and my job is to get some more players in here now to help this group.

I have a crushing deadline, two and a bit weeks before that window closes, how unfair is that window.

I'm of the understanding that there should be no window because it limits you, it limits the teams that come up.

It is a busy time for all of us managers but probably extra tough for me at the moment but there you go, such is life.
