Holloway has high hopes for new look Blackpool squad

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway sees plenty of potential in his new-look squad after the recent closure of this summer's transfer window. Holloway made 12 signings last month in a bid to strengthen his newly-promoted squad.

Holloway told the club's official website: "I'm delighted with the squad we're getting together. We've got eight internationals now, which Blackpool hasn't known for years and years.

"We couldn't have tried any harder; we couldn't have done any more. I've got to work with the people I've got now - and that's quite a relief.

"What I need to do now is work a back unit, get the midfield together with them and then have a play around with the striking options I've got, because I've now got some. I'm genuinely excited and I'd like to thank Karl (Oyston) for his support."
