– Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway
I'm trying to talk in a way so people don't think I'm funny any more, I'm fed up with that.
I'm not a comedian, I'm a football manager - at the end of the day that is what I do. You will have my interviews every week and they will be serious and I will be talking about football.
