Blackpool boss Holloway delighted for Newcastle striker Carroll success

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway admits he's excited seeing Andy Carroll fulfil his promise at Newcastle United.

In his column for the Independent on Sunday, Holloway wrote: "Carroll is an old-fashioned No 9, and I don't mean that with any disrespect. He can head it, he is strong, he is a threat when the ball is crossed into the box, getting his barnet or his foot on the end of it.

"That is a classic English centre forward for me. They are a dying breed and it is brilliant to see him doing so well."
