'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ollie The Gold Prospector

Speaking to the gathered press this morning, Ian Holloway revealed that the Seasiders have been offered thousands of players following their promotion to the Premier League, but that finding 'the gold' amongst them all is proving to be a tough task.

The Seasiders are yet to make any signings so far this summer as Ollie plays a patient game in the transfer market; waiting for the right players to become available at the right prices - a tactic that served him so well last season.

Ollie said:

'I'm being serious when I say we've had thousands, not hundreds, of players recommended to us by agents.

'I feel like a gold prospector; one of them may be a lump of gold but most won't be.

'But although I need players, I won't be launching myself into the transfer market and making crazy signings of overpaid and overrated players.

'Everyone else has fallen into that trap but I'm not going to.

'I am going to take my time, work with my chairman and try to get some real good people in to help my lads, who were so fantastic last season.'

Meanwhile, it was confirmed today that the club's new home shirts - set to be launched this week - are unlikely to be on sale in the club shop until the Fulham home game.
