Don’t touch it!!! It’s a really delicate situation for Ian Holloway.
Does he risk the team spirit, balance, and rhythm of the side he has built or does he encourage Karl “tight wad” Oyston to scrape the dust off that wallet of his and make some additions?
Holloway’s ability to cultivate a siege mentality and a healthy team spirit will stop Luke Varney swapping Bloomfield Road for West Ham’s Upton Park. That’s a show of loyalty from a player rescued from Derby’s reserves and thrust into the Premier League.
Whether they can resist the temptation to ignore Blackburn’s approaches for Charlie Adam is another matter entirely. He was caught in a rather public and unsavoury battle with the club over bonuses and may well feel his time on the Fylde coast has come to an end.
POSSIBLE INS: Luke Varney (permanent from loan), Adam Hamill
POSSIBLE OUTS: Charlie Adam, Jason Euell
