The Tangerine Knights have issued a statement in response to Ian Holloway’s words that he would speak with Karl Oyston about a return to Bloomfield Road.

Ollie’s desire to at least talk about the vacant managerial hotseat has pretty much split the fans, but the Knights were clear in a statement they released to the press.

The statement reads.

‘A direct appeal to Ian Holloway, all other managers and the Oyston family from the Tangerine Knights

‘We have seen that today (Monday) Ian Holloway has confirmed he would be prepared to talk with Karl Oyston about a return to Blackpool.

‘Ian, we respectfully urge you to reconsider. This club is in turmoil, and it is our opinion that Karl has lost control of the club. You must have seen what has happened and that there is a Civil War here between the fans and the Oystons. That is not going to end by you returning here, it will only paper over the cracks.’

The statement goes on to say that ‘no matter what happens’ Blackpool are ‘going nowhere’ until their is a change of ownership, and it poses the question to Ollie.

‘Did you see the comments from Lee Clark? He could not take it anymore and described it as a nightmare. Alan Thompson felt the job was impossible.

‘Please Ian, don’t come back whilst the Oyston family are still in control of our club.’

On the subject of managers, the statement also calls on all manager’s to avoid the job and they acknowledge that this is a ‘controversial’ step to take publicly, but explains that this isn’t a ‘normal situation, this is a club at civil war’ and a huge stand needs to be taken by the wider footballing community.

‘Furthermore, we urge all managers to do likewise. This might seem a controversial step to some, however this is not a normal situation, this is a club at civil war between the owners and the fans.’

I’ve not yet seen whether Holloway has given a response to this or not yet.
