Around 700 Plymouth Argyle fans made the long trip to Sunderland last week. They were rewarded not only with a 3-2 away win, but also the promise of a pint from Pilgrims boss/Who Ate All the Pies hero Ian Holloway:
‘I hope I see one or two of those on the Barbican over the next couple of days and I might like to buy them a drink,’ Hollers said. ‘So anyone who travelled up here, please send me a letter â€“ I’d love to buy you a drink.’
When it was pointed out that the round might cost a few quid, Holloway responded: ‘I don’t care. That’s what
football is all about for me. It’s passion â€“ you can’t get rid of it.
It’s marvellousâ€¦ I’m quite popular at the momentâ€¦’
