I can imagine terrible seeing as the Oystons' have taken £23 million from the club in the past few years (with a news article link on that timeline of shame) but won't pay for players' FA registration, won't pay for post match meals at other clubs and won't even pay for enough staff to keep the club running.

 

They're down and out and have my commiserations win, loss or draw. Never been a club I've been particularly fond of (my ex's club and also we seem to do badly against them, no other reason :p ) but you really do have to feel for their fans. Makes me even more grateful for being fortunate enough that our club is run by a bloke as good as Gibbo.

Only 1200 sold for this, very surprised, thought we would have sold out ages ago

 

Reading the Blackpool forum it sounds like most of them are refusing to go to anymore games with there situation.. Its probably going to sound like an home game for us.

They stopped playing possibly their best player (Joe Lewis) because if he played again they'd have to pay Cardif £40k.

 

Seriously.

 

That's just unbelievable. Lewis must be ***ed, he's far far to good for the level Blackpool are playing at and to be stuck not playing at all must royally suck.

Also, Lee Clark lied to fans and media for weeks and said Lewis was injured, without consulting the player that he was going to go with this line.

 

Oyston's son put a picture of his dad by Bloomfield Rd on twitter with the caption 'my dad and his cash cow'.

 

Odious.

Offering Robbie Fowler £100 a week after he returned from Oz to play.

 

Offering players out of contract 40%, 50% or 60% wage reductions. Best example being Gary Taylor offered a 50% wage cut, when he refused it, Oyston got back to him 2 weeks later with a 70% wage cut offer.

 

Not going to say too much about the owners for fear of Oneboro getting taken to court :D I don't think much needs to be said to be honest, everything they've done speaks for itself.

For the attention of any official persons/parties acting on and behalf of the owners of Blackpool FC the oneBoro forum does not associate itself with particular individual members own views relating to Blackpool AFC even if they appear to be tight gits!!!!!

Just reading the Gazette and forgot Forshaw was cup tied, He will probably start tomorrows game then.. Makes sense. If he does start who gets a rest?.

Clayton for me NB, looked a little off the pace and absolutely knackered against Charlton.

I picked that line up with the pitch, Team we are playing and the fixture Bomb in mind :D

I think, looking at it, Naughty Boy is the closest to the money regarding the team. Not sure about Wildschut, just because he's been right out in the cold, and would be shocked to see him in the XI.

I think if Husband doesn't start, he will certainly replace Friend as soon as (if) we have a 2 goal cushion.

I definitely think that Clayton will be the one to be rested. He gave it a 100% against Charlton but wasn't his usual self, looked a bit run down imo. It's the perfect chance to start Forshaw, he's looked decent when being used as a sub and he's also cup tied so can't play on Sat.

 

We'll need Fredericks to be at his best against ***nal, he's the paciest RB we have so I'd rest him and bring in Kalas. I'd also like to see Reach start, think he looked a little despondent against Charlton as a sub so hopefully starting will motivate him to fight a bit more for his place.

 

No point putting my team up as it's pretty much the same as NB's lol. Really hope we get a win, it would just cement what a fantastic run we're having at the moment.

    • I think people are getting carried away in believing NW will build a potential promotional squad next season, were as I believe he is employed to balance the books with bargain bin players for championship sustainability.  I don’t believe NW signed to ensure promotion only then to walk away if it was achieved, because the squad would need to be rebuilt to maintain its position. Like I said I believe his role is to mop up and leave, which makes sense simply because he is not building for the following season and has nothing to prove or answer for, he trots off into retirement, after balancing the books with  a team that can reasonably compete in a league the town can afford.    
    • I have watched some higlights different angles from the first Swansea goal .. If the ball doesnt deflect off Spence .. It would be off target across the box
    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
