Ollie Talks Transfers

Ollie Talks Transfers

With rumours flying around like nobody's business, 'Pool manager Ian Holloway used his pre-match press conference for tomorrow's game against managerless QPR to speak about possible ins and outs at Bloomfield Road during the present transfer window.

One player Ollie is desperate to keep hold of is Charlie Adam; whilst admitting full well that there'll probably be bids for the Scottish international this month, Ollie says that he's determined not to lose him... yet.

'I understand that two years, normally 18 months, is about all you can hang onto a really good player like Charlie. But I'm nowhere near that yet with this boy,' said Holloway.

'It's about commitment. That's what I give my people, so I am fully expectant that he is going to stay here and want to help us with what we're doing.

'He and I have had long chats about what I expect from him, what I want from him, where I want him to go. It will be no surprise to me if we get offers for him.

'And how much could I ask for Charlie? Someone would have to rip our arm off because I am not stupid.

'Have a look at who I've sold in the past and what for, and he is better than all of them.

'So someone would have to fill up a wheelbarrow, then a bin, then a skip, then a lorry and then I might consider it. Until that happens, get stuffed!'

Strong words there from the Blackpool manager!

Ollie also confirmed that he had just returned from a scouting mission abroad, and that he is looking at players outside of England and Scotland because of their inflated prices.

'I doubt whether I'll sign any of the targets I've got in this country because what they are supposed to be worth is just ludicrous,' he said.

'It seems like everyone is starting at £500,000. Maybe it's because we bought Charlie for that, but not everyone I'm asking for is Charlie.'

It could be a very interesting month at Bloomfield Road, and as always, Vital Blackpool will have all the news, views and opinions.
