DJ admits Holloway danger

Manager Holloway as worked wonders with the Seasiders this term,

guiding his side to a mid-table position in the Premier League

despite pre-season expectations of doom and gloom from outside

Bloomfield Road. Forward Campbell, 29, says his eccentric boss

deserves all the plaudits he gets but with clubs always on the

lookout for new managerial talent, such as Blackburn who are

currently without a coach, he believes Holloway will have attracted

interest. “I would not be surprised if anyone else was interested

in him because he’s doing such a fantastic job,” Campbell said in

the News of the World. “If he was to leave the club it would be

hard but he would leave a legend.” On Blackpool’s excellent

campaign so far in the top-flight, Campbell added: “I think that a

lot of managers have seen how we are playing and thought ‘if

Blackpool are having a go, why don’t we?’ “In the last 10 years of

watching the Premier League I’ve not seen so many of the promoted

and so-called smaller teams having a go at the big teams. “I think

that is because of us – we have gone and had a go. “We went

defensive at Chelsea and lost. That taught us a lesson. We knew it

would be tough playing against world-class players but we have that

belief that if we go for it, we will stay up. “We are almost

halfway through the season and if we can replicate and better what

we have done then we will definitely survive. “We have even

surprised ourselves. There were people saying that we would be

relegated and that we wouldn’t get 10 points.”
