We're playing for pay - Holloway

BY foxsports • April 10, 2011

A poor run of form has seen Holloway's side drop to 17th in the Premier League table, just a point above the relegation zone. While there is still everything to play for with seven games to play - with the Seasiders next hosting Arsenal at Bloomfield Road on Sunday - Holloway is under no illusions if his side can not get the necessary points to stay up. The Blackpool boss said: "They all deserve the money off the chairman for staying up, but if we don't stay up they won't get it. "In fact, the money of all the players will be cut in half if we go down. That goes for me, as well. We go back to what we were. "I don't think it instills fear into the players. It's a well-run club." But Holloway insists his team will not change their style of play in the run in as he seeks to guide them to safety. He added: "Arsene Wenger knows he'll come here and we won't try and beat him up. We'll try and pass and play our way there. We can't bully anybody. "I'm telling them don't lose it now with a whimper, let's go for it. Who's going down? In your face, that's how I feel."
