Mirror - Holloway: QPR exit ruined my family's life
Ian Holloway believes leaving QPR ruined his family's life.
The Blackpool boss spent five seasons in the top flight with Rangers as a player, before taking over the Loftus Road hot-seat in February 2001.
But Ollie was given the boot after five years in charge of the Hoops.
Last month, the 46-year-old urged Rangers owner Flavio Briatore to sell-up and leave Rangers, before he ruins the club.
Briatore's axe fell again yesterday with Paul Hart becoming the latest casualty of the Italian's reign.
The former Pompey boss lasted just 28 days and is now the sixth full-time manager to leave Loftus Road since the millionaire took over in September 2007.
Pool host QPR this afternoon, and [b]Ollie reckons his life has never been the same since leaving the West London club.
He said: "There's a lot of history there. Good luck to them, but not on Saturday,
"My kids haven’t been the same since. My deaf daughters couldn’t understand why I'm not working for them anymore.
"They didn’t realise daddy could get the sack and they love QPR.
"My whole life's changed a little bit after that. I don't like them getting too close to the flames because they can get burned."
Billy Clarke remains sidelined for Pool, while QPR have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the clash. Mirror

Michael Calvin/Sunday Mirror - Why Mancini might not be the future of football, and well done to Paul Hart
- "...You are a football manager, the ninth ­employed by the club chairman in 26 months.
You inherit an unfit squad with an attitude problem. The boardroom is a viper’s nest of intrigue and innuendo.
What do you do when your ­professionalism is compromised after five games?
You emulate Paul Hart and put as much distance between you and ­someone like Flavio Briatore as ­possible.
Good move." Sunday Mirror

By Neil Ashton, 16/01/2010
- PAUL HART will be offered an immediate return to work by Spurs following his departure from the QPR hot-seat.
- Hart, whose reputation with young players remains sky-high, is wanted by Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp to head the club's academy.
- Redknapp took Hart to Portsmouth to run the youth side when he was manager at Fratton Park.
- Hart was lined up for a similar position at Manchester City before Mark Hughes was sacked.
- Brian Kidd, who was development coach at the time, wanted Hart to join the youth programme at City.
- That was put on the back burner when Kidd took the job as assistant manager to Roberto Mancini and Hart went to Rangers.
- His spell at Loftus Road ended on Thursday evening and the option of joining Tottenham may be too good to turn down.

Hart admitted: "If I hadn't got the job at QPR I probably would have gone back into youth coaching anyway.
- "I've done it before, building it from the bottom up. I know how to do it and I enjoy it."
