Bolasie's Blog: Liverpool

Published 1 Comments

Crystal Palace 3-3 Liverpool. What a way to end your last home fixture of the season. 

Drawing 3-3 after going three goals down really does feel like a win. Playing a part in the title race is exciting for the players and fans as yesterday's game at Selhurst Park has shown.

I have been brought up to fight until the final whistle. I didn't stop trying even when it looked like Liverpool were going to comfortably beat us as you never know what is going to happen in football. 

You could see that they became a bit tense after we scored the first goal. They were looking to improve their goal difference - when they should have maybe sat back and defended their lead. 

Tony Pulis has done a terrific job for us and definitely deserves the Manager of the Year award especially after last night's result. He kept us going when we were 3-0 down and out of the match. The fans also deserve a special mention as they are nothing short of incredible.

They kept going even when we were 3-0 down, still singing and making noise which is a big help to the lads. I'm so glad Dwight Gayle managed to bag a brace because he is so clinical in front of goal.

I am also pleased I was able to play a part in the goals. I am a team player so will make sacrifices in order for Crystal Palace to claim a positive result.

I am obviously disappointed that I haven't been able to get on the scoresheet this season but hopefully I can change that against Fulham on Sunday. I will be working on adding goals to my game in the summer as I want to become a more rounded player. 

I plan to go on holiday with my family once the Premier League campaign is over and then I will work on my fitness from around the middle of June - before linking back up with the lads for pre-season training. I want to make sure I come back even stronger next season.

There's been a lot of speculation recently regarding my future but I am just letting my agent deal with contract talks.

I have been trying to concentrate on what's happening on the pitch so I haven't really had time to talk about signing a contract extension. 

You lose concentration when you enter negotiations about a new deal so I have left it all to my agent. I feel like I've been on a good run of form so I didn't want contract talks to have a negative impact on my performances. 

The most important thing to say is I want to stay at Crystal Palace beyond my current deal which runs out next summer.

I feel at home here so why would I want to go anywhere else? My aim for next season is to finally score a Premier League goal at Selhurst Park!
