Blackpool boss Holloway tells Chelsea's Cole to dump Twitter

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway believes Chelsea star Ashley Cole should give Twitter away.

Ollie wrote in the Sunday Mirror: "I love having a ­platform to express my views in the Sunday ­Mirror.

"But I'm not one for ­Facebook or Twitter.

"I can't understand the so-called social media when the whole concept is so anti-social. Locking yourself away in a room and tapping away on a computer or mobile phone is my idea of hell.

"You can detach yourself from real people and the real world so much that you run the risk of doing something stupid. Just ask Ashley Cole.

"If ever you needed ­evidence that some footballers live in ivory ­towers, Cole's decision to insult the FA through his Twitter account was it. Once you start getting angry on Twitter it's impossible to get the genie back into the bottle."
