Start of the football season tonight with Blackpool v Hull on Sky this evening. I spent some time in Lancaster earlier this week with my favourite parishioner and on Monday evening, after a wet day in the Lakes we dropped into an old haunt for a pint. Who should we find ourselves bumping into but Ian Holloway, Blackpool manager, partaking of a sandwich and a glass of white wine before seeing his Blackpool XI defeated 3-1 by Lancaster City (who are gloriously nicknamed The Dolly Blues). So, how many other people can claim to have heard his dulcit Bristol tones crooning away to Al Green's, Let's Stay Together? Hope it isn't an omen for a meeting with his chairman this season, everyone likes Ian Holloway, even if he was once Argyle manager.
