Holloway enjoys an unforgettable day

04 Oct 2010 - 08:38:50

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway hailed his side's 2-1 win at Liverpool as one of the best days of his footballing career.

The Seasiders stunned Anfield with first-half goals from Charlie Adam and Luke Varney and held on for a famous victory after the Reds pulled a goal back through Sotirios Kyrgiakos eight minutes after the restart.

Holloway commented: "It is one of the dreams I've had for years.

"When the fans were singing You'll Never Walk Alone - it's my dad's favourite song but he's no longer with me - I was singing myself and it was a bit emotional.

"This is not far off the home of football - these supporters have seen some of the best football over the years and in my era as a player there was no better team in the world.

"The boys made me so proud and for that set of supporters to clap us off that is all I wanted - that was what my dream was last night. This is a fantastic moment for Blackpool."
