I always thought Holloway was a Hoot but I think he has taken the role of court jester a bit far this time. 14 million Pounds (pleaseeee!!!!). I can understand his viewpoint but the facts are, they bought him for 500 000 pounds that is less than one million, AND he has got only 18 months left on his contract PLUS he has put in a transfer request. These 3 factors do not add up to 14 million and Holloway knows it and so does Liverpool and all the teams that would want Adam. I feel sorry for the lad being caught up in such a mess when he is eying the career move of a lifetime. Personally I feel that the the fairest fee is between 6-8 million but then life is not fair. I dont see us bidding anything more 6 million at our most generous best. The fact is Adam needs Liverpool more than Liverpool need him and the sooner Holloway realises that the better it will be for everyone concerned. It is all good pushing one's luck but sometimes it can become a push too far.

I am suprised at that as my cousin seems to think they have not put any clause in as regards sell on so he will be pleased if they did have the brains to do so as it seemed at the time charlie was in so much trouble that they just thought better for him and the team if they got rid to the first offer
Can't really blame Holloway, and while his antics do look like the court jester, I think you'll find his words and actions are all premeditated, and well thought out.
At this point he knows holding on the player is gong to be hard. He knows he's gone in the summer. So while he may care for Adam and may want the best for him, his number one priority is Blackpool. Therefore in the interests of his club he'll say or do anything to hold onto the player who maybe very influential in helping them survive in the prem (and that is huge in financial terms for a club like Blackpool), and if he can't do that, then he's going to try and get the very most out of the club that wrestles him away. The question is will Holloway get to make the final decision, or will he be undercut at some point by his chairmen if we or someone else can put together a deal that is hard to turn down.
But your spot on in that the real loser here is Adam himself. He does need the move much more than us. He'll still leave this summer, whether Blackpool survive or get relegated, but I doubt it will be to us as I think we'll be shopping at a much higher table at that point when more players are available. He'll most likely go to a club like Fulham or Birmingham, and I'm sure financially he'll get quite a windfall compared to what he's earning now. However the chance to go to a club, that might be midtable now, but has real aspirations to challenge at the top again very soon will be gone.

"However the chance to go to a club, that might be midtable now, but has real aspirations to challenge at the top again very soon will be gone."
Hahha another ridiculous statement from the biggest JOKE i've seen on this board over the past FIVE YEARS!
Just HOW are Liverpool going to 'challenge at the top again" with the financial might and superior squads of Citeh and Spurs putting us light years behind steer... just because Kenny is back? Dream on fool...

Jog on steer Jog onnnnnnnnnnn
I really don't feel Adams warrants the "Hollering Holloway" asking price. I feel we should back off, let Blackpool sink into the relegation zone then if we are still convinced he would add to the squad, enquire during the summer.
Perhaps the same for Suarez, when there is less time (will be only one season) on his contract.
My reasoning is that even together, I feel, they will not be the able to give us champions league football next season. They will need time to settle into the squad, work with KD and get used (Suarez) to EPL football etc.
