Off-field squabbles continue to overshadow Blackpool’s on-field success

As per usual at Blackpool Football Club; off the field issues have been talked about more than events on the pitch. Last week; two supporters were jailed and handed football banning orders for their actions on the final day of last season, the infamous Huddersfield Town abandonment. Now while you obviously cannot condone their actions, it is hugely disappointing to see such punishments handed out. The Oyston family acting like this...

Blackpool need consistency and more signings

It’s been a while since my last blog, in fact this is my first of 2016, and a lot has happened at Blackpool Football Club during the New Year. Most surprising of all was the scoreline from Bloomfield Road last Saturday. Not only did Blackpool manage to win a game, they won in explosive fashion. The 5-0 victory over Scunthorpe United came completely out of the blue. Pool’s eight wins this season have all come in blocks; two wins...

Blackpool finally showing some signs of improvement

Sometimes when I write these blogs, I feel like I repeat myself. The amount of times I’ve talked about the importance of “following up” a victory with a run of performances, or “turning a corner” following a poor run of form must be near the double figures mark now. A run of six defeats without scoring has been halted after three wins on the bounce, and Neil McDonald’s side look like they’ve turned the corner! The Seasiders are now...

Blackpool need goals, but look set to lose Cubero

Finally, the long wait is now over. Blackpool FC have scored a goal, and they’ve won a game too! A 1-0 victory over local neighbours Fleetwood Town ended a seven-game losing streak, but the result does not tell the whole story. Pool’s goal came via a deflection from Fleetwood defender Nathan Pond. Incredibly, Blackpool won the game and earned a vital three points despite not having a single shot on target. And if we want to be really...

Toothless Blackpool need to give Ranger his last chance

It’s been 546 minutes since Blackpool Football Club last scored a goal. Jack Redshaw bagged from the penalty spot in a narrow 4-3 defeat away at Bury. That result ended an impressive six-game unbeaten run for Pool, but against a side looking for promotion there were plenty of positives to take from the game. Pool have gone on to lose all six of their last games in all competitions without scoring a goal, and it’s hard to see when the...

Back to the drawing board for Blackpool

The phrase ‘a week is a long time in football’ couldn’t be any more accurate for Blackpool Football Club. Prior to their Lancashire derby loss at Bury, Pool were on a six-match unbeaten streak. Neil McDonald and his players were looking much more confident after their poor start, and I wrote in my last blog about how the club could start to push on now and move further up the table. I also wrote about how Pool’s four away fixtures in...
