Ollie: I needed a new challenge
IAN Holloway says his desire for a new challenge was the reason for becoming Crystal Palace's new manager.
The 49-year-old Bristolian left Blackpool to take charge at Selhurst Park on a four-and-a-half-year deal on Saturday.
"They (Blackpool) have been magnificent to me and I just feel ready for a change.
"It's a new place, a new challenge and everybody in life needs that sometimes. It's a personal choice for me to have a fresh, new outlook on things."

Holloway spent three years with Blackpool, winning promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs in May 2010, although they were relegated the following season.
The former Bristol Rovers, QPR, Plymouth and Leicester boss came close to securing a return to the top flight last season, but his side were beaten in the play-off final by West Ham.
