Ego: Ian Holloway

Listen on Apple Listen on Spotify

When I was the sports reporter for BBC Radio 1 for 8 years, I spent a lot of time talking to and hearing from an exhaustive list of Premier League managers. One of them stood out above the rest for entertainment value – and that was Ian Holloway when he was in charge of Blackpool FC.

Ian Holloway is clearly a naturally funny man – and he also has a depth and emotional sensitivity that you can’t help but warm to.

A driving theme of this podcast is ego – and not letting the idea you have about yourself get in the way. We also talk about emotional intelligence – and Ian shares how his experiences have helped him grow and evolve, not least looking after his wife through serious illness as well as raising three profoundly deaf children. As he says, we all get challenges and difficulties in life – and it’s about how we cope with them that matters.
