Millwall boss Ian Holloway enjoyed Alan Pardew's bust-up with Manuel Pellegrini.

The Newcastle United and Manchester City managers squared up to eachother last week.

Ollie wrote in the Sunday Mirror: "What Alan Pardew shouted at Manuel Pellegrini last Sunday was wrong.

"No question. Alan himself knew he had gone too far and said sorry. But I’m delighted that the FA chose to do no more than send the Newcastle manager a reminder to think about his behaviour.

"Because do you know what? I would rather see two managers of massive clubs who are full of passion for their team’s ­performance than to have them not care about what was going on.

"Part of why we all love football is that it is an emotional game.

"It stirs something inside you to compete and to give your all – and that’s something I want to witness from the people at the very top of the game."
