many a true word spoken in jest. i understand there is a bigger picture to all this, and Mr Holloway is intimately involved. could see changes before Easter I'm told


There's definitely a lot more to this than meets the eye. Could be an interesting few months.

What time was he on air please? I will listen on Talksport website but obviously don't want to listen to the entire show, just the bit Holloway was on!

Interview begins around the 20 minute mark.


Thanks for that Poojah

I was impatiently listening to TalkSport on the way in to work and thought I'd missed it as I got to our staff car park just after nine and he'd still not been on... I can have a listen now

Absolutely priceless and you sense the change we have all yearned for is around the corner. Always liked his enthusiasm at other clubs and on talksport but the level of commitment he is making is fantastic and loved his comments on his time in the club shop yesterday.

Maybe it’s just me but you feel like this guy is very genuine and town gives him the opportunity to leave a legacy and he is determined to achieve that. Hate continual comparisons with the Chimps but Holloway has the character to galvanise and increase our support in the same way the Cowleys did over here.

Going forward we can attend games knowing every player will give 100% effort every game which as fans is the minimum we expect, add some better quality performances and more goals a la McMenemy’s first season and I would expect our average crowd to be at least 5500 and we can build it from there. Not looked forward to the future so much since Buckley Mk2 returned.

Always loved this post-match interview he gave a numbers of years back.

He said in a different interview that he wanted to raise the profile of the club and he is certainly doing that. We needed someone to drag us into the 21st century and that is what he will do on and off the pitch I feel. We have been saying for a while that we needed fresh blood on the board, a CEO who knew the game , new investment and lately a new manager. Who'd have thought we would get all that in one guy, with a new ground also looking closer, it's been some week. First win in months to boot.

How quickly things can change and the right catalyst at the right time can ignite any club.

They say it's a funny old game. There I am in my early 60's and suffering a real malaise when it came to Town. Not really  bothering whether I went or not and not seeing any optimsm that it was ever going to change.
Here I am back posting and refreshing Twitter etc like a rampant teenager and booking tickets for Mansfield. How things can change so quickly and If I am honest I still have to pinch myself over the last 48hrs.

Is there any way you could elaborate further on this without compromising yourself?  Sounds exciting.......


Certainly someone who should know a bit about what's going on was heard to say the word 'soon' when questioned on the subject recently.
