Carling Cup Blackpool (H)


Recommended Posts

First ever time we'll have ever played Blackpool in League Cup 1st round.

When we played them in the second round in 1988 that was my first ever game on the Kop. I'd been in the West or North stands since my first game in 1981. We won 3-1 on the night but went out on away goals I think.

They have a lot of money though because of the parachute payments so they can easily replace them.

We've got money but I don't see us being flooded by signings.

Last year they struggled to recruit despite being in the PL.

They will be seen as a club that peaked and now in decline by a lot of people.

Will be a good test for us to see how far we have progressed from last year.

I think it's a good draw TBH

Can't really disagree with that mate. Might drag a few more through the turnstiles and could be a decent game. Far better than a no mark league 2 team who we play the reserves against and get 3000 there.

If the ticketing is realistic we could get 10-12000 for this.

Just not bothered...

We're not trying to get in the Premier League though, are we?

They could easily attract quality Championship players with the wages they could pay, and with Holloway in charge they will make some good signings.

And I agree that it's a winnable tie but I was just stating that they can replace their quality players.

Quite appealing this game....

Can't remember the last cup game i actually wanted to go too.

They really do have some gash defenders I hope Evatt and Crainey play, could see us causing them problems. So long as we don't route one it at Mellor into Baptistes mouth.

It's one of those games where we can't really lose. Nobody will be expecting us to win so if we do it will give us a massive lift, if we lose we have the age old saying of " well the league is more important and it's only a Mickey Mouse cup anyway " lol
