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

Frustrations Continue For Ollie

Sky Sports News claimed he was just 'tired', but Blackpool fans could clearly see just what a dejected figure manager Ian Holloway cut on the news channel last night.

Holloway was speaking after his side had beaten Kilmarnock, and once again used the interview as an opportunity to vent his frustration at the Premier League, the FA and 'Pool chairman Karl Oyston.

Ollie said:

'If I had to go in with this [squad], I would be packing my bags and packing it in to be fair because we're not ready - we won't be ready, I don't expect these young lads to be ready.

'I could do with a break and I'm not getting one. But, as I say, all the hard work needs to be done now, it's absolutely crazy rules because the window slams shut upon us and is really a restriction of trade, and I'm not going to stop saying that, that's the truth, it's absolute madness.

'But as I say, we're just literally trying to find out what clubs want by making offers - and our initial first few offers weren't very good and were quite insulting I think to the clubs who we spoke to.

'Hopefully now the chairman will be back on the 23rd and we can get the full lot of business sorted out that we need to.

'Whether we're good enough or not, time will tell but we are starting 20 million miles behind [everyone else] and I just need everybody to understand that.'
