06/11/12 League Ipswich Town (h) 5-0 win

Another new era at Selhurst Park. The crowd welcomed Ian Holloway ahead of his first game in charge of the Eagles. There is little doubt that he has inherited a side that he hasn’t got to an awful lot with but it is the long haul that we are interested. But the fun starts here.

None of us could envisage this start for Holloway but it was a rather nervous opening to the game with struggling Ipswich taking control. But it was Bolasie that settled the crowd and the new management team with a delightful chip over the keeper for his first goal for the club since joining from Bristol City. That was the score at the half but then it was the Glen Murray show. He coolly put away two penalties in the space of five minutes and soon had a third to complete his hat trick but h it was third time lucky for the Ipswich keeper who saved, more so down to how much practise he had I guess. But Murray was not to be denied and his hat trick was confirmed minutes later which took his tally for the season to 13. The icing on the cake was a late fifth from the impressive Moritz.

View from TheEaglesBeak; The unbeaten run stretches to 12 games, not even a management change can stop us. This has to come to an end at some stage but long may it continue.
