Holloway fears team will break up

Manager Ian Holloway insists he has the stomach to lead the revival at relegated Blackpool but fears his current team will be broken up.

Although the Tangerines led at Manchester United on Sunday, they were unable to resist Sir Alex Ferguson's men, slipping to a 4-2 defeat that ensured they finished second bottom in their top flight debut season.

Blackpool will drop down to the Championship and Holloway is now braced for an assault on his squad from hungry predators, with his Old Trafford goalscorers Charlie Adam and Gary Taylor-Fletcher among those likely to be picked off.

"I have got a very hard job on my hands now to keep this team together. None of them want to fall into the Championship and some of them will get snapped up by the vultures," Holloway said. "I know what they are earning - and what they will go back to - and they won't want to do it. They are an exceptional group and that group will never be the same again."

The Blackpool boss added: "David Vaughan, Stephen Crainey, Matthew Gilks - I don't think they'll want to stay, because I think they can get better contracts at a higher level.

"And what about Charlie Adam? If we'd won today, I might have been able to offer Charlie a new contract and persuade him to stay. What's going to happen with him?"

Adam was the subject of transfer bids from Liverpool and Tottenham in the January transfer window and the Scot is sure to be courted by a number of Premier League clubs in the summer.
