Court Case No Bearing on Adam's Pool Future

Court Case No Bearing on Adam's Pool Future

Ian Holloway has categorically stated that November's court case between Charlie Adam and Blackpool FC will have no bearing on the captain's future.

Adam took the club to court last year over an issue with unpaid bonuses.

The 25-year-old had a 'Championship status' bonus of £20,000 owed to him because the club staved off relegation to League One.

That wasn't paid, with the club acknowleding that promotion to the Premier League - and the reported £400,000 Adam received from that - superseded previous clauses.

In the end the midfielder won the case, but that won't be a factor on his Bloomfield Road future as the Seasiders continue to knock back bids for their star man.

However, rumours are circulating within media circles that this could now become an issue with Adam wanting away. Something which is strongly denied by boss Ian Holloway.

'Sometimes Karl (Oyston) doesn't give a monkey's about anybody when it comes to money but Charlie fought for what he felt was right,' Ollie told the Blackpool Gazette.

'I wasn't going to get involved in that, I didn't need to.

'It worked itself out and I wasn't going to lose Charlie over that because he loves playing for us.

'He loves playing football the way I ask him to play, and if he was somewhere else the players on the end of those lovely passes he hits wouldn't be much better than we've got - Taylor-Fletcher, DJ, Varney or Matty Phillips.'

Meanwhile, one of the players mentioned by the manager says it's imperative Adam stays where he is.

Gary Taylor-Fletcher, who has scored twice in the past week, said: 'Charlie is a massive player for us. When it isn't going right he always tries to drag us through.

'Everyone is still talking about us as little Blackpool, and with the players we've got and the way we are playing other clubs will no doubt be sniffing around our lads, so it is vital that we do keep our players.'

Striker DJ Campbell also fielded questions on the talisman's situation, saying: "We'd all love to see him stay but there are other good players here - it's not a one-man team. But we would love him to stay so that we can finish the job that we have started.

"Money isn't everything, we have an environment here where everyone wants to come to work and be part of what we are doing here. We could make history."
