Holloway's style of play growing on Palace squad
IAN Holloway believes his Palace players are beginning to show signs of how he wants to play the game, not just at first-team level but throughout the club.
The Eagles boss is known for his attacking brand of football but insists he wants every single player on the pitch, whether they're a defender or an attacker, to have their minds set in every game.
And while he acknowledges his side can hit opposition sides on the counter-attack with the talent at his disposal, he admits he won't be looking to play that way all the time.
"I knew all about the youth set-up and it's perfect for me as a coach to try and get the whole club moving in the way that I want," he told Advertiser Sport.

"Certain tactics and characteristics I want my team to have – the more you do it, the better you get, so we've only just started really.
"The lads are liking it, enjoying it and I think their confidence is growing.
"I think you can see that everybody in every single position is part of every move we're having, whereas I think six of us would defend, plus the goalkeeper, we put our foot in because we're so good at it, then we clear it to the front four and they run off.
"Some of our lads will join them, others wouldn't, and whether we score or not, we then set back up and defend.
"With the greatest respect, I'm not looking to do that, I'm looking to get a structure where they are all in the game all the time in their minds.
"I hope it starts to come and the fans will enjoy it eventually. But it's all about winning."
