Stoke manager Tony Pulis believes it will not be long before his old pal Ian Holloway has his name emblazoned through sticks of Blackpool rock.
The two mates meet in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night and Pulis is a big admirer of Holloway, who he tips to become a legend by the seaside after being appointed as Blackpool manager in May.
A special friendship developed after Holloway walked into the door at Bristol Rovers as "a scrawny 12-year-old" when Pulis was knocking on the first-team door.
Holloway later became godfather to Pulis' son, Anthony, and the two men watch each other's managerial careers with great interest.
Pulis said: "Ollie's an infectious character and they will love him at Blackpool. They will have rock with his name through it soon.
"He took some time out after things didn't work out for him at Leicester. In hindsight, he would probably have stayed at Plymouth if he could have his time over again. But his batteries are recharged now and Blackpool are already feeling the benefits."
