With Blackpool FC firmly ensconsed in the Champions League places and Ian Holloway being rightly tipped as a future manager of England, a few people are touting this weekend’s Super Sunday clash with Chelsea as an early six-pointer in the title race.
I’m afraid I’m not among them. You won’t find me getting carried away . . .
after all, there’s no certainty Chelsea will still be up there by next May.
On a serious note – best wishes to Seasiders youth coach, Gary Parkinson. He only played a handful of games for Blackpool, but his performance in the first leg of the play-offs with Hartlepool, a key game in Blackpool’s revival, will live long in the memory. He’s been a good servant off the field as well and his stroke has come at a time when it seemed his hard work with the youth set-up was bearing real fruit.
