Holloway: Back the boys
Blackpool manager Ian Holloway wants the Seasiders faithful to support their team rather than get on their backs.
The Tangerines' 2-0 home league defeat to Charlton on Saturday was met with a chorus of boos at the full-time whistle. Holloway was unhappy with that response and has pleaded with the fans to get behind the players.
"Don't turn into every other club," he told the Blackpool Gazette. "My message to our supporters is not to end up like other fans, who just moan at their team all the time.
"When we conceded against Leeds the other week, our fans were chanting 'Holloway's Tangerine Army' before we even kicked-off again. We went on to batter them and win the game.
"On Saturday our fans booed. What chance have we got? Our players looked scared to death. If it gets to the point where a player is worried about trying something special because they fear what the crowd will say, we are in real trouble.
"Our crowd is known for being supportive, positive and creating an environment in which we can produce something special."
