Blackpool

Post by -BARON-23- » Tue Jul 08, 2014 1:13 pm

Interesting developments at Blackpool this summer. They currently have only eight senior players on their books at the moment. Four of these are strikers whilst one of the players has never been given a shirt number. They are currently overwhelming favourites with the bookies to be relegated this season. With only five weeks left until the beginning of the season, just how much trouble do you think Blackpool are in?

It's not looking good. Plus Tom Ince left on a free.

They should still get a bit of compensation. It would have been a lot less if he'd moved to Inter Milan.

A bit of compensation doesn't buy them a new squad though. Hopefully they've got some decent youngsters and quite a few loan moves lined up.

Hopefully? I would quite like to see them go down! I hated being in Blackpool when they got promoted; the amount of glory fans was beyond a joke so it's good to see a shit owner struggling and the "fans" going back to where they came from.

They've cancelled their pre-season tour to Spain due to their lack of players...

Sad when things get this messy for clubs.

At least they won't be having problems complying with the FFP rules.

Rumours starting that they might be without a manager soon, too... Not really surprising under the circumstances...

I heard he might have already walked out but the board they are keeping it quiet at the moment. That's from a Blackpool fan at work today.

As in he will still be there or not? It's a pathetic excuse for journalism really isn't it.

Yeah pretty much. A lot of it is just pure guess work and jumping on the bandwagon.

If Oyston was Venkys then this would be daily news on Sky Sports...

There's not much left for them to do but guess when Riga won't let anyone talk to the media.
