Sometimes football is far too serious and it needs characters to lighten the mood. Step forward Ian Holloway; decent footballer, decent manager, brilliant in interviews and punditry. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed listening to some great quips from the likes of Cloughie, Strachan amongst others, and our beloved Sir Bobby was great with his sometimes brilliant and sometimes bemusing quotes. These are individuals who veer or veered from the normal cliched rubbish but Holloway is really out on his own and he didn’t disappoint in his interview after our defeat to Blackpool, when he suggested Nile Ranger could “catch pigeons” and followed up with ‘if you watch Bedknobs and Broomsticks, one of my favourite films, that’s what Hameur can do’, in reference to Bouazza’s ability.
