Not really before time
Always seemed to have that Warnock factor..............maybe not.
Never liked him. A clown for the press to enjoy.
Yes, I am amazed he has lasted this long, should have gone 2 months ago at least.
Absolute dog $$$$ annoying manager.
A manager more recognised for his stupid jokes than ability to actually do his job that well.
Awful manager, I just don't understand why teams keep giving him a job.
Yet bizarrely he is up there with the likes of Paul Jewell, McCarthy, Reid, and Megson in getting teams promoted to the top flight.
Funny i remember some people saying he would do a good job here.
breath of fresh air.. Lol what a load of $$$$
I really like Holloway, think he's a great bloke. However it was a strange way that he left Palace, and now this, might have knocked the stuffing out of him a bit. Possibly won't see him for a while.
Wonder if they might tempt Joe Gallen?
Christ, his stock hasn't half fallen through the floor recently. Only a couple of years ago he was being linked to some pretty big jobs. Has Premier League experience- now you wonder where he will end up?
Looks mentally frazzled to me, I too think it may be a while before he returns.
Makes you wonder where/who the next good English manager is... When Hodgson got the England job, there were several names being touted, Holloway, Phil Brown, Harry etc... now none of them have a job, let alone a chance at getting a top job.
Really...? I don't remember that.
Before he "lost it" at Hull, yes
On his way to Molineux
he had a brilliant time at blackpool but not many can stand tall in football management as there is nowhere to hide.
always liked him - a great character - he also had some very successful times particularly with Blackpool and early days with Palace
Brown is at Southend but I get your point.
He's not a bad manager just was at a bad club..
Back to the West Country to rebuild his career. Bringing back Bristol Rovers?
This really just shows what a fantastic manager we have. He did wonders at Millwall to get them to and keep them where they were for so long.
Holloway is an average manager really who has his ups and downs, like the vast majority of them really-other than people like Mourinho who has bags of money to spend and even he has a few downs as well!
What is Holloway best known for in football?
Taking Blackpool up?
Which in nigh on 20 years as a manager is about it.
Can't speak for others wolf97 but whenever there has been a conversation where Holloway's name crops up most people I know see him as a bit of a clown, a joker. He seems to find it necessary to make stupid and silly wise cracks when none are needed.
When he was Manager at Plymouth he was always sniveling to the Argyle fans about how great they were and how he would not be off anywhere. All the time he was saying this, he was in talks to take over at Leicester. Got a right stroppy on and the genial Bristolian mask slipped when the local paper ran a headline " Ian Hollowords ". I noticed as soon as he went to Millwall he tried the tactic of what great fans we have but the Millwall fans were not having it!
Didn't know that NB and if true, and no reason to doubt you, it does paint a different picture to the front displayed.
He probably has a future as some sort of resident comic guest on that utter drivel Soccer AM.
That said years ago I actually quite enjoyed the show but don't bother with it much at all nowadays it really has become that poor.
Didn't he give Mick M the nod so we could sign SEB ??
People are being a bit harsh on Holloway. He got Blackpool and Palace up almost out of nothing. He either seems to do really well or really poorly (Leicester & Millwall) in a job.
As a resident here in the wild west of Devon I remember the incident very well. Was linked with the Leicester job and said it was all a work of fiction and he was not going anywhere and all sorts of quotes. Then three days later or thereabouts low and behold there he is being unveiled as the Foxes new Boss.
It still does not sit well with my mates who follow Plymouth all over the country. Plymouth is always going to be stepping stone to bigger and indeed easier clubs to get to, but the locals are not as dumb as they are painted and they felt he lied to them.
I quite like Holloway's quirky humour - you were never sure what he'd say next, and the game needs a few characters like him around.
However, his batteries seem to have run down in the last few years, and I'd hope he takes a break. Blackpool might have been his high watershed in management.
Holloway's experience probably means he'll always get a job helping or advising a lower league club - as has been suggested already, a club like Bristol Rovers for whom he played for years. In fact I think he comes from that area of Bristol.
Still, they all seem to want a final shot at something, don't they, so I guess we'll see him taking up the reins again next season somewhere.
That paints a picture of a man not of his word?
He did an absolute fantastic job with Blackpool.
