Mr Holloway is not a silly man and if a half decent job opportunity comes up he can go to the Chairman and say I've done nothing but back you but it's time for me to go. Even Karl couldn't argue with that.
I think Blackpool should be bending over backwards to keep Ollie. If Owen Oyston was worth £11 Million for our year in the Premier I believe Ollie should be getting more than he is on now but I can't see a big contract offer coming from the club in the near future.
Ian Holloway said in tonight's Gazette why carry on? The reason is the fans. We've watched some great football over the last 3 seasons. It's not that long ago it was Halifax at home on a Wednesday night with less than 2,500 fans. I know the oystons have had a big part in our upturn of fortunes but the style and standard of recent football is down to Ollie. Keep the faith Ian because we will.
COME ON THE POOL.
oh and happy birthday our glorious leader ollie .ps do me a favor stay off footy forums , you need to except critique . goes down well with the natives . hehehe
I think you have raised a good point there by saying Holloway would jump ship if the chance came along. Not saying now he would but what happens if we don't get promoted? He has taken Blackpool as far as he can and that is the most worrying factor. Would the motivation be there to have another season in the Championship? You couldn't blame him if he wanted a new challenge.
Of all the negativity this week, wouldn't it be nice if Oyston used some of his winnings and tied Ollie down to a lucrative long term contract. Having said that, would Ollie accept?
The mans a buffon
Maybe but he is still Blackpool's best manager in recent times.
You and I both know GTF BO IE will be playing Saturday, I can't wait for IE to be dancing down the left wing like the great Tommy Hutch.
I Have only ever seen two great managers Billy Ayres and Ian Holloway
The rest have just been ships in the night passing through
