Ian Holloway can't seem to keep his name out of the news at the moment.
The Blackpool boss is sought after by the national media for his quirky soundbites about anything and everything.
Last week it was the turn of Wayne Rooney to be talked about by the seaside messiah.
Ollie bemoaned Rooney's lack of respect for Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson but has since apologised for 'over the top' remarks about the striker's appearance.
Soccer AM showed an interview clip of Holloway slating Rooney for looking similar to a famous cartoon character.
The manager has since said: 'I've been talking far too long (in interviews) and I don't realise what I say sometimes.
'People ask me about other people's business and I stick my big nose in. But I can't help being me, and if I've offended anybody in the last couple of days I do apologise.
'I did say something that I'm not really proud of. I think they showed it on Soccer AM on Saturday.
'I'll have to have a word with (Rooney) about that. But I didn't really mean it in a nasty way.'
Ollie has also said over the weekend that he expects to lose star midfield man Charlie Adam sooner rather than later.
'I know Charlie's a brilliant player and I have a lot of good players who, cunningly, we're not paying a lot of money to,' he said.
'Others will see that and they'll covet them and then come in. And I won't be able to do a damn thing - that's why I was so vocal the other day.'
All of this may be true but in future I for one would hope that the manager focusses his time on becoming aloof from the media like his counterparts in the Premiership.
Loved by all, but the time for learning the tricks of the trade is now.
