Holloway sets high standards for Blackpool

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway does not rate fifth position in the championship as acceptable, despite being a play-off position. The Seasiders boss told the Blackpool Gazette: "We're fifth are we? So what? That's rubbish. That doesn't matter. We have got to be the best in the pile and we are nowhere near that at the moment."

He added: "The best in the pack are Southampton. They are more consistent and they are blazing a trail. They are fantastic.

"But they haven't had any negativity have they? They got promoted and they haven't lost their best players."

Holloway added: "At this club sometimes it is very difficult because I've got the players' gripes, I've got the fans' gripes and I've got the chairman's gripes about the difference in the club and what is happening. I just got really tired and fed up, and I can't be like that. I have to bounce back."
