The negative aspect of this is that Holloway is a tactical idiot. He should have kept Blackpool up to be honest, if he had more tactical nous. Not sure how much Dani would learn.
That's nonsense. On paper Blackpool are by far the worst team ever to appear in the premiership, and they'd barely strengthened a squad that was itself pretty much miraculously promoted from a league they were among the relegation favourites for.
Holloway might not be subtle or versatile, and his tactics may lack some balance and refinement, but he did an astonishing job getting them promoted, while keeping them up would have been an even more astonishing achievement, and they only just missed out on it by the skin of their teeth.
Say what you like about Holloway but he has done an incredible job at Blackpool and it was incredibly impressive they got as close to staying up as they did. If anyone else had kept that squad up it would also have been a borderline miracle. 'Anyone else', IE someone like, say, Steve Bruce or McLeish, would have, at best, done slightly better than you would expect from their wages and transfers, which would have led to an early relegation at rock bottom, quite possibly with fewer points than even Derby managed. That's how little money they spent.
As it is, they're now much, much better equipped for the championship than they were as they were still working within that budget, and may actually be able to build up gradually, give themsleves a good chance of promotion again and come back much stronger and possibly able to up the wage ceiling a bit to possibly keep them up.
