Ian Holloway looking to replicate Wolves’ style

7 06 2010

Holloway's Blackpool beat Cardiff 3-2 at Wembley to gain promotion.

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has admitted one of the first people he will ring to get Premier League advice is Mick McCarthy.

Holloway said his Blackpool side must replicate Wolves’ efforts last season and buy the young and hungry mould of player that Wolves have done in recent years.

His budget however, may dictate otherwise. Last year, Blackpool’s yearly budget was £4.8m but that will be boosted this year by the windfall after getting promoted.

Holloway says he may continue to deploy his favoured 4-3-3 formation and defend the way Wolves have this season.

He also admitted that the club also failed in an attempt to bring Aruna Dindane to Bloomfield Road.

*Holloway was talking at Grass Roots Football Live at the NEC. Thousands of players, coaches and managers turned up to hear from some of the most experienced managers in the business such as Iain Dowie, Graham Taylor and Peter Taylor.

Here’s a selection of my favourite Ian Holloway clips:

Seems like Ian is a nice lad to have as a manager!
