Championship preview: After the Tevez tantrum, Holloway confirms passion is still present in football
Holloway felt that fourth official Guy Stretton stopping him from making a substitution before a Coventry corner resulted in a goal during Tuesday’s 2-2 draw. And Blackpool’s manager has received a one-match touchline ban, which he will carry out on Saturday when his team face Bristol City, having been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association for comments made in the Coventry contest.
Indeed Holloway may be managing in the Championship, but we can still hear him loud and clear.
“We did our job,” insisted Holloway. “My kit man gave him the number and he’s already got them on his board. He’s now saying that he didn’t.
“I’m absolutely sick and devastated because I’ve been sent to the stand,” added Holloway. “I promised my wife I never would again.”
Charged for using insulting/abusive language and behaviour, Holloway has to pay a £2,000 fine. Still, at least he cares.
In a week which has seen the very notion of the ‘Beautiful Game’ being slipped into the gutter following Carlos Tevez’s mutiny, Holloway’s rant is refreshing if foolish. Long live the passionate people in football.Tagged in: blackpool, Ian Holloway, tevez
