Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has another meltdown, this time over threat of FA fine

He’ll quit, should a bill come through the club’s letterbox

Fresh off his OOOISTHISPERSON? rant of a few weeks ago, excitable Blackpool manager Ian Holloway has had another ‘special’ moment with the nation’s press, this time exploding at the threat of being fined by the FA for fielding a weakened team away to Aston Villa on Wednesday.

Holloway made 10 changes from Saturday’s two-all draw with Everton – and almost nicked a point – but following Wolves boss Mick McCarthy’s £25k fine in February for replacing 10 of his own first teamers against Manchester United last season, punishment could be round the corner.

Should the FA stand by the precedent set with McCarthy and fine Holloway – at the risk of making a mockery of the new 25-man squad rule?

    The sooner his brief stay in the Premier League is over the better. Holloway is a peacock of a manager and has quickly established himself as a pain in the a##e who likes the sound of his own daft accented voice!

    Ian Holloway is correct to blow up at the old farts in the FA, with a squad of just 25 players, he can play anyone he wants, when Man UTD field a weakened side nobody says a thing, or when they get their usual 3rd half at old trafford, (only when they are 0-1 down, the old farts remain silent

    If theres one thing Ian Holloway is is passionate, he speaks his mind and that is refreshing to say the least. He is perfectly correct in what he’s said what is the point of a 25man squad if the league can rule their not good enough to play? i hope he survives in the Premier league beacause its nice to hear something other than the usual boring pres conferences
