Clever move from Holloway. Cant see Adam leaving anytime soon though

If he does, so do Blackpool from the League.

He seems to be a decent guy but I think he just wants to keep his best players. Nothing sinister in it at all.

He's making a profit for himself in selling players, just sounds wrong. And this door should not be opened in football.

Fair enough. Thinking about it again, it does seem strange that he would want such a clause in the contract but you could argue it's because he didn't want the club selling Adams behind his back.

So the higher the fee for Adam, the bigger the cut Holloway gets? Is this why he's been trying to sell a player he bought for £500k at £14m? Good luck with that, you greedy ****.
