Blackpool V Rotherham Preview

2014 for Blackpool FC has been like a bad pantomime. Some awful performances, only a few moments to make you smile, a classic Panto villain, the shout to Joe Lewis \'it\'s behind you\', the \'back end of the horse\' (you can choose any one from XI at the moment) and players custard pied on a weekly basis. The Seasiders season is hanging by a thread and unless the wins start to come soon the curtain could come down on our Championship stay at any moment. It has truly been an awful year and ....

Shelf Wed 1 Blackpool 0

So the year on the road started with a 2-0 defeat at Hillsborough and will end away from home with a 1-0 defeat at the same ground. Over the years Hillsborough has been one of those grounds we have visited alot but you get the feeling that could be the last trip across the Pennines for a while. A lack of discipline cost us once again cost us as we conceded our 11th penalty of the season - cut out those errors and who knows where we\'d be. Lee Clark tried something different today placing ....

Sheffield Wednesday V Blackpool Preview

They say records are there to be broken and on Boxing Day Lee Clark has the chance to avoid Blackpool picking up one of the most unwanted records of the year. If the Seasiders fail to win at Hillsborough on Friday, it means the club through many managers and players but always with the same long suffering fans, will have only won one game in 2014 on the road. So will supporters finally get the chance to sing the \'Jingle Bells\' song in Sheffield? You have to go back to that win at Wigan which ....

Time To Go Ho Ho Ho

The Queen once described her worst year as an Annus Horribilis. Well 2014 has been the worst year in Blackpool\'s history and some would describe the man responsible for it as a Horrible Anus! Name calling, back biting and unpleasantness seems to have become the norm at Bloomfield Road this last 12 months but the latest chapter involving the Chairman has taken the club to new depths with only one solution to the problem. Karl Oyston has always been the self-proclaimed King of the wind ups. ....

Blackpool 1 Bournemouth 6

One team at Bloomfield Road today had passion, skill, talent and drive, had received investment, had stability, had head hunted a promising manager, had a Chairman who was passionate about his club and looked like a side heading to the big time. The other side was Blackpool. In our preview we wrote it wouldn\'t take much to undo the decent work of the last four games and within 90 minutes, it was a sorry looking Seaside side which left the pitch. Lee Clark has already made a few changes which ....

Blackpool V Bournemouth Preview

Few could have expected when this fixture was announced at the start of the season that after 21 games of the season that the Cherries would be top of the Championship and the tangerines bottom (well arguably a few might have thought the latter). With just two games to go to the halfway point of the season, we\'re coming to that point where results really start to count and the promotion and relegation contenders are evident. After 17 games, Blackpool\'s season looked dead and buried. 7 points ....

Charlton 2 Blackpool 2

If the last four games had been the start of the season then Blackpool would now be 10th in the Championship. If you take Lee Clark\'s six games in charge (and to credit him with the Leeds defeat seems a bit mean) then Blackpool would be 15th. It\'s slow and measured improvement but the fact remains that we\'re still rock bottom and the gap to 21st place doesn\'t appear to be closing. Draws are an improvement but victories are what we need. If Blackpool are to get to 50 points then they need ....

Charlton V Blackpool Preview

If the win against Birmingham was \'one small step for Lee Clark\', back to back victories against Charlton on Saturday would be \'one giant leap for Blackpool FC\'. Sad that it\'s taken 20 games for the Seasiders to go three games unbeaten but therein lies the reason we remain bottom of the Championship. It\'s not the first time we\'ve got 5 points from 4 games - Jose Riga also managed that with draws away at Brighton and Middlesbrough and a home win against Cardiff. So can the new \'Pool ....

Blackpool 1 Birmingham 0

After an appalling August, shocking September, \'orrible October and a non-descript November, could we be in for a decent December? Not often that we start a month after the first game with a 100% record but Lee Clark\'s first three points of his tenure was just what the Seasiders needed. A win against his old club, Blackpool finally getting to double figure points and most importantly closing the gap ever so slightly on the teams above them. Nothing to get carried away about yet though but ....

Blackpool V Birmingham Preview

They will illuminate the tower, set off fireworks from the piers and paint the Golden Mile tangerine when Blackpool eventually get to double points this season. Last season it took four games to reach that milestone and so far this season we\'re 19 games gone and still a point off that elusive target. With just four games to go until the halfway point of the season, it doesn\'t take Carol Vorderman to work out we\'re well shy of where we need to be points wise. So can December finally produce ....

Another One Bites The Dust

Even Blackpool\'s most ardent fans may struggle to remember who we had on the bench on the opening day of the season. Away at the City Ground, our pickings were so small that we could only name 4 subs and they were Dunne, Parrish, Telford and Waddington. If there was ever a sign that a side would struggle then it was this, as Blackpool\'s shambolic summer would lead to an even more woeful season. The aforementioned Telford did make a brief appearance on to the Forest pitch replacing Sergei ....

The One That Got Away?

Whilst there were understandably howls of disgust when Karl Oyston approached Gary Rpwett about the job at Bloomfield Road, few people actually took the time to look at the manager himself. The former Blackpool player hadn\'t been in the game long and despite being a success at Burton Albion was unproven at Championship level. Having turned Karl Oyston down, he went to Birmingham to see whether he could take on the challenge. So far it looks like he\'s working the miracle that the Seasiders so ....

Rotherham 1 Blackpool 1

There was a time an away point would have been seen as a good result but when you\'re 10 points behind the pack and closing in on the halfway stage of the season, a draw against one of your relegation rivals isn\'t good enough. Thankfully a mistake by the Rotherham keeper meant Blackpool didn\'t leave the New York Stadium with nothing, however the gap remains 10 points and there\'s still no sign of that first Lee Clark win. One of the criticisms of Lee Clark at Birmingham was that he used to ....

Rotherham V Blackpool Preview

So Lee Clark, let\'s see what you can do. Two draws and two defeats so far and wholesale changes at Bloomfield Road, now is the time to show us what you can do. In terms of expectations, Clark has little to live up to. Few are expecting Blackpool to get out of this mess and there\'ll be little blame aimed in his direction if we do go down. However, there\'s nothing gracious about going down without a fight and now is the time for us to see some of that. Already the team has changed beyond ....

Blackpool 1 Bolton 1

Lee Clark is looking to make a silk purse out of a sow\'s ear but so far all he has done is held it together with sticky tape. A better performance, a bit more quality on the pitch and only a lapse of concentration separating Blackpool with their second win of the season but nevertheless for a home game against a poor Bolton side it still showed up our inadequacies. Thankfully a Jacob Murphy free kick made it all worthwhile. With debuts for Eagles, O\'Hara and Kennedy it was a very different ....

Blackpool V Bolton Preview

When Jose Riga arrived at Blackpool, the club had about the same amount of players as the Seasiders now have points. Fast forward 3 months and now Lee Clark has more players than he knows what to do with. So much so we\'re now trying to offload players as quickly as we\'re bringing them in. With the arrivals of Nosworthy, O\'Hara and Eagles, it will be a different look to the Blackpool line up on Saturday. Lee Clark has attempted to identify the problems at Bloomfield Road and having seen some ....

Riga\'s Parting Shot ....

Graham Le Saux summed up the last few weeks/months/years at Bloomfield Road when he said \'file under how not to run a football club\'. Le Saux has always been the thinking man\'s footballer and it looks like he hit the nail on the head with this comment. It followed the final words of Jose Riga as the whole sorry story of his time at Blackpool came to an end after a week of TV and press interviews.  Riga told Football Focus he \"didn\'t want a fight\" at the club, but says he had to ....

Leeds 3 Blackpool 1

Lee Clark - you have two weeks to save Blackpool from releagtion. Arguably the most important two weeks of Blackpool\'s season starts now - when they won\'t even be playing. The international break will give Clark a chance to assess what he has, where he needs to strengthen, get his squad up to fitness and go again against Bolton. We\'re not far off this season being over before the year is out and that is the sad reality of it. It was a game that was over before the half time bovril had been ....

Leeds V Blackpool Preview

So what\'s happened in the week that Lee Clark has been at Blackpool. First a dire display against Ipswich, a very creditable draw at Fulham, four new loan signings and maybe a renewed sense of optimism at Bloomfield Road despite still being firmly bottom of the league. If Lee Clark wants to prove himself then it will take more than talk, a few signings and better football - what he needs is wins and he\'ll be looking to Leeds on Saturday. Tony McMahon is suspended after being sent off against ....

Fulham 2 Blackpool 2

Now the Riga Revolution is dead could the Clark comeback be on the way? After Saturday\'s lack lustre loss to Ipswich, the new manager made a few tweeks and whatever he saw that was wrong at the weekend, he quickly put right at Craven Cottage. However, luck doesn\'t go your way when you\'re at the bottom of the table and a missed opportunity to kill the game off, a red card and a goal from a dubious corner meant \'Pool shared the spoils. With Jacob Murphy, Andre Orlandi and David Perkins all ....

Fulham V Blackpool Preview

10 months of the year complete and just four wins the whole of 2014. That\'s the sorry state that Blackpool FC find themselves in and after Tuesday night\'s results they are also at least 3 wins from getting out of trouble. Hopefully Lee Clark didn\'t use up all his luck on the last day of the season at Birmingham and he can work some sort of miracle at the seaside. He goes in serach of his first win on Wednesday night at Fulham. Winger Jacob Murphy could make his Blackpool debut after joining ....

Murphy Signs In

Lee Clark hasn\'t taken much time to get his first signing as Norwich teenager Jacob Murphy has joined on loan until February. The 19-year-old winger becomes Clark\'s first signing at Bloomfield Road having only appeared once for the Canaries in a Capital One Cup game this season. Murphy, whose twin brother Josh Murphy is also plying his trade at Carrow Road, previously had spells on loan with Swindon and Southend last term. \"It\'s a really good move for Jacob,\" Canaries boss Neil Adams told ....

Blackpool 0 Ipswich 2

Lee Clark said before his first game in charge at Blackpool that he wouldn\'t have taken the job if he didn\'t think he could keep Blackpool in the league - I wonder if on Sunday morning he was having a re-think. Despite making a few changes to try and freshen the side up with a debut for Dunne and the return of Ranger to the starting line up, if anything Blackpool looked worse than under Riga and that takes some doing. It was a poor spectacle and the game’s opening goal was a scrappy ....

Blackpool V Ipswich Preview

So the Lee Clark revolution begins at Bloomfield Road - probably not quite with the same fanfare as Jose Riga but with a remit to keep the Seasiders in the Championship. With nearly a third of the season gone he\'s going to have to look at near play off winning form in order to acheive it and that\'s got to start with the home form. The arrival of an Ipswich side who have lost some of their early season mojo may be a perfect opportunity. Tony McMahon returns from a one-match suspension for Lee ....

Clark Ready To Take Over

Lee Clark looks to be heading to the seaside after just a week without a job. The former Birmingham boss is the surprise choice of Chairman Karl Oyston after reports the two met last year before Paul Ince was appointed as manager. By all accounts once the i\'s have been dotted and the t\'s crossed with the twi sides admin teams, Clark will take up residence at Bloomfield Road maybe before this weekend\'s game against Ipswich. Karl Oyston had previously approached Owen Coyle and Gary Rowett ....
