Player Profile: Tyreece John-Jules

Neil Critchley’s experience and connections at the Premier League U-23 level continue to pay-off; securing the services of Arsenal’s Tyreece John-Jules for a season long-loan. The 20-year-old, who spent last season with Doncaster Rovers in League One, has also had a loan spell with Lincoln City. It was with Lincoln where he scored his firstContinue reading “Player Profile: Tyreece John-Jules”

Opinion: A Thank You to Simon Sadler

A week on from our success at Wembley, it still hasn’t sunk in what has happened and that Blackpool FC are in the Championship.. I felt compelled to summarise my thoughts and thank Simon Sadler – and everyone else associated with the club – for what’s happened over the last couple of years, but ofContinue reading “Opinion: A Thank You to Simon Sadler”

Opinion: Play-Off Hopes – Can We Go All The Way?

Having booked our trip to the Kassam Stadium in the semi final of the League One play-offs on Tuesday night, followed by the return fixture on Friday – can the Pool reign victorious in the play-offs once again? I analyse the likelihood of the Tangerines making it to Wembley for a eighth time. With theContinue reading “Opinion: Play-Off Hopes – Can We Go All The Way?”

News: King Kenny’s Australian Dream

Since breaking into the Blackpool side at the end of October, Kenny Dougall has become a clear fan favourite at Bloomfield Road. He notched his first goal recently at Oxford, so how about a call-up for his national team? The bleach blond Australian surely can’t be far off a call up given his performances thisContinue reading “News: King Kenny’s Australian Dream”

Match Preview: Peterborough United

Fresh from Saturday’s excellent victory over Oxford, I preview tonight’s match against Peterborough United, as a win would take us into the play-off places for the first time this season. I must admit, after the drab home draws of late I was slowly beginning to lose hope that we could still make the play-off placesContinue reading “Match Preview: Peterborough United”

Review – Hull 1-1 Blackpool

Blackpool were left wondering what might have been after a frustrating 1-1 draw against second-placed Hull City. The Tigers took the lead early in the second half but, after Hull went down to 10 men when Reece Burke brought down Ben Woodburn on the edge of the box, the Seasiders equalised through Jerry Yates and had chances to come away with all three points.

Review – Blackpool 2-2 West Brom (3-2 Pens)

An inspired performance from Neil Critchley’s men earned Blackpool their first victory against top flight opposition in the FA Cup since 1976. The Seasiders took the lead late in the first half after a dangerous ball across the face of goal from Bez Lubala was touched home by Jerry Yates.

Analysis: A review of Blackpool’s style of play over the season so far

It has been a mediocre season on the whole for the Seasiders and really that should have been our expectation from the start. Practically an entire new squad was bought in this summer and it was Neil Critchley’s first chance to try and imprint his own mark on the club since his arrival. As weContinue reading “Analysis: A review of Blackpool’s style of play over the season so far”
