Classic HolloWatch: Ian Holloway is Will Smith

Holloway_2More classic lines from one of football's most colourful characters and Who Ate All The Pies favourite Ian Holloway. In this speech to a QPR supporters' club in 2002, Holloway is accepting an award while also wanting to put fans at ease following relegation, the sale of several top players and financial problems. What else could the situation demand except an extended Men In Black metaphor?!

Classic HolloWatch: Ian Holloway is Will Smith continued

Men_in_blackOlly: Did anybody see the Men in Black? Well I've got a little black suit on and so has David [Davies, QPR Chief Executive]. We've got a little black bow tie and we've got some glasses and every now and again we are going to have to go PHTTTT with this little thing to lose your memory. Because, what you don't realise is that over the last year, we have been so close to the brink of someone wanting to steal the Galaxy, that we were in big, big trouble. All you can feel, all you can sense is 'What's happening to my club?!' and I understand that. But we can't tell you all the information, because you won't be able to sleep! That's true!
