Blackpool boss Holloway: I am not interested in big time Charlies

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway says he won't be bringing in any big time Charlies for their Premiership campaign.

Holloway says dressing room spirit will be crucial to staying up next season.

"I'll explain it like this," he told the Blackpool Gazette. "I've never gone looking for a car that is expensive if you get what I mean.

"I've looked in the Mini garage to spend whatever it is for one of those. But now I might have to look for a Bentley and oh dear they can expensive and they can be temperamental.

"So if I bring in one of those high maintenance cars when I'm used to looking after Minis then it could ruin my whole car lot. I am not going to do that.

"They had better behave like one of mine. I don't want one of these Bentleys that might be temperamental or might cost me a fortune.

"I want someone who wants to play for me the way my lads want to play for me.

"If they don't want to then they can sling their hook because I'm not interested.

"I am not going to bring in some big time Charlie, who is more concerned about what his hair and clothes look like than what sort of shift he will put in for me.
