Blackpool face Premier League trouble

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway is threatening to resign if the Premier League fine him for making ten changes for the league game at Aston Villa.
Jonny and Kev face off!
It was a match the Seasiders only narrowly lost anyway - to a last minute James Collins strike in a 3-2 defeat.

Kevin Hatchard, Sportsmedia radio reporter for 200 stations across the UK agrees with Holloway's stance and tells me it's none of the Premier League's business anyway.

As Kev will tell you, Holloway selected a starting XI from his 25 registered Premier League players, so what's the fuss?

Other top flight managers are rallying around him in support including Wigan boss Roberto Martinez and Mick McCarthy, who was involved in a similar controversy last season, when Wolves went to Manchester United with kids - and lost 3-nil.

  1. Holloway is spot on although I hope that he doesn't carry out his threat to resign if Blackpool do get fined. At the end of the transfer window, every club had to subit their squad of 25 including their home-grown players to the premier league. I take it that their squad was accepted by the premier league so therefore the manager should be in a position to pick 11 starters from an approved squad. Football adminstrators. F@@@ing hell!!!1
