Ollie swaps Plymouth for Leicester

Any regular reader of Caught Offside will know that the writers are often accused of supporting, and (more importantly) hating, whatever team is convenient for to slag them off. Usually this is about as accurate as a James McFadden finish, it happens that this writer couldn’t give a jot about who wins what in the Premier League. However, he will nail his colours to the mast by saying ‘Leicester are a thieving bunch of c**ts, give us our bloody manager back, you have ruined everything!’. Yes, Ian Holloway is moving from Plymouth to Leicester, according to the Plymouth Evening Herald. Adopts funereal tone:

Ian Holloway has resigned as manager of Plymouth Argyle, according to a source close to the 44-year-old.

It is believed Holloway is having talks with Leicester City chairman Milan Mandaric today about taking over at the Walkers Stadium.

Unbelievable, what a terrible decision, everyone knows Milan Mandaric is a nigthmare to work for, NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Holloway, who has been the Pilgrims’ boss since June 2006, did not arrive for work at Home Park this morning.

It was the second successive day the Argyle squad had trained in the absence of their manager as the players were left in limbo about the future of Holloway. Coaches Des Bulpin and Geoff Crudgington, plus physio Paul Maxwell, took the session at the Harper’s Park training ground.

And now the search for a new manager begins, as the Championship descends into farce.
