Lucky they scored two more for him to watch

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has revealed he missed the first goal of his side’s 3-0 victory over Sheffield United because he had to nip to the toilet. The one-man quote machine blamed his ageing bladder and the large amounts of water he had consumed for missing Marcel Seip’s header.

He said: “‘I missed that one. I get so nervous these days after a year off, I sank three bottles of water and my bladder isn’t what it used to be.

“I was going about my business when the roof came off and I thought we must have scored. I got a bit of stick from everybody and I’ll probably be fined.”

We presume the roof coming off was metaphorical and that Bloomfield Road was not exposed to Little Olly.
