lol, would love to know who the press guy was, it was a reasonable question but I do love Holloway's reaction to it!

What a guy : ) Him and Mick McCarthy make watching the interviews on MOTD a pleasure.

I thought it was a great speech, it was purely from the heart and they are always the best. Lost his way a little in the middle but at the end of the day regardless of whether the players were receiving their first/second start. They outplayed the winning team in the first half and he brought on 'stronger' subs in the second to try and win the game. The fact that we ripped them apart is neither here nor there. Can't fault him i'm afraid.

only problem he will have is getting a 'bigger' job because people are scared of the vocal.. just look at Brian Clough and no England job for instance.

I am absolutely passionate about this. It is an absolute outrage that any one should tell a club who their best players are, and for anyone to imply that any club's reserves are not good enough, is taking the p*** big-time. It seems no coincidence that only the small clubs get dragged over the coals, and that big clubs can rest their star players prior to CL fixtures with impunity. Only a manager is in a position to decide whether a player is in a fit physical or mental state to play a game. This is accepted when Ferguson sends Rooney off to America when he insists he is fit, but when Holloway or Mick McCarthy does the same, the blokes in blazers insist in second guessing them. It seems yet another case of one set of rules for one set of clubs and an entirely different set of rules for the so-called elite. One thing Holloway has got right, and that is that if you provide good copy for the press, they will try and wind you up and get you into trouble with the blazers. He should shut them out because they do not deserve anything better. He makes their jobs easy for them and what do they do? They try and destroy him. The press are total scum.

Well said Ian Holloway. Like or loathe the man, surely no one can suggest that he is in the wrong on this matter? The premier league made a rod for their own back by fining Mick McCarthy's Wolverhampton Wanderers, albeit a suspended fine, so it is going to be really interesting to see how they handle this one.

think that is the point, why do they make clubs have a squad if you aren't allowed to choose from them? It was however a very radical change, the fact that they gave as good as they got against us is another issue and a worry though. Think there is a way to rotate the squad, that was perhaps a little ott but he could justifiably say they came close to getting something out of the game v us with those changes.
