Ollie Angry With Adam

Ollie Angry With Adam

Ian Holloway was angry with Charlie Adam after Saturday's game against Ipswich after the midfielder had gone almost the entire season without telling anyone about his long throw.

It was a long throw from Adam that found its way to Jason Euell to score the only goal of the game as the Seasiders moved back into the playoff picture.

Speaking about Adam, Ollie said:

'I've just had a go at him and said, 'Why didn't you tell us you had a long throw like that in you?''

However, not even his anger at Adam could detract from the manager's delight at finally getting a win over Ipswich.

'In the first half we were a little bit sloppy in one or two situations where perhaps we made the wrong choice,' Holloway said.

'Roy knows how to play against us and he's beaten us twice already this season so I threw a bit of a curve ball at them by not picking Ben Burgess and going for a bit more movement.

'I call their two central defenders the twin towers as you have to keep the ball away from them by getting out wide.'

As well as singling out the performance of Matt Gilks in goal and comparing the pitch to an allotment, Holloway also praised match winner Jason Euell:

'It's nice to have the fans cheering him. Scoring goals breeds confidence and now he's got one, lovely jubbly, I can pick him a bit more often.'
