Had a punter today asking for odds for grimsby to be in the premier league within 10 years. Natural instinct is to laugh it off but look where we were 10 years ago

Did anyone else see the headline on the BBC website: "I'm working on a portrait of Stevie Wonder" - in isolation with Ian Holloway, and think "Is there a gag coming?"

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football

Anyhow, seems he's taken up art - an old interest of his - while in lockdown, he's enjoying it and while I'm in absolutely no position to judge these things, he seems to be giving it a good go.

He really is quite the character, is Olly.

I'd be more impressed by Stevie Wonder doing a portrait of Ian Holloway.

Complete nutter. I like him too but would not want him near us.

Have to admit that I have a soft spot for him too. Not the greatest manager but seems a decent sort with a very nice sense of humour. Has had his personal difficulties as well, with 3 of his 4 children being deaf and his wife having come through cancer.

Grimsby Town have been handed a (suspended) fine by the EFL for not following proper Covid measures etc.

Included in the Beeb's report is this gem:
"Players were allowed to congregate in communal areas at their Cheapside training ground, while the BBC also understands former boss Ian Holloway admitted to investigators that he played darts with some of his players, which he claimed was a training tool."
Grimsby fined for Covid-19 rules breach


"Tool" is a very apposite word, I think...

First game I saw at GP he was in midfield. The song being sung by bees fans was Ian, Ian go away. 1986. We were losing 1-2 and many leaving (crowd about 3k) and with 3 minutes to go we ended up winning. Think Droy scored and it was against Gillingham. Was spannered though.

I can only think that players who annoyed him were made to stand sideways against a wall with an apple in their mouth.
