Ollie offended by Premier League

Ian Holloway believes the Premier League would be glad to see the back of Blackpool if they lose their fight for survival on Sunday.

Holloway is furious at claims Manchester United could get fined if Sir Alex Ferguson fields an understrength team and Blackpool secure top-flight survival by becoming the first team this season to win at Old Trafford.

Not only does Holloway feel it undermines his own team, he is also indignant at the suggestion Ferguson is not bothered about finishing the Premier League season on a high note.

I hope Blackpool does a good performance. They have played some great matches this season, but been to unstable. United will for sure test new players, but they will win the last match on Old Trafford - to celebrate the PL-title with their fans!

I like Ian Holloway very much as he speaks exactly what is on his mind without sugar coating it. He does not insult the intelligence of the fans by giving out scripted speeches. It wil be sad if Blackpool is relegated and Holloway is no longer in the PL.

I think he is right of course... the decision to fine him for fielding a 'weakened side' was ridiculous, especially since the bigger clubs do it regularly without similar treatments. Since he is so vocal and downright frank with what he says, PL chiefs certainly would like to see him go as he seems to be challenging them quite a bit, and they don't like anyone who fights back.
