I wish you lot would curb the excitement.
Pile of  shite
Zzzzzzz
Can't wait for this.
Think I'm the only one which is positive we clearly have a couple of forwards that need goals and minutes. Be good for Grayson to play the lesser players in his preferred tactics so when they are needed it's no a shock. I do think he should go out have fun and not care about the result to much . If we find ourselves in the final next year then maybe prove a point that we are back and show again how powerful the wembley boycott was in 2017

I think the positives are that someone such as Matty Virtue will get some minutes on the pitch in between games we can actually be arsed with.  He was interviewed for the preview so I would expect he might feature tonight. 

Also - Scannell? 

Yes so as long as we don't get injuries, it could be a positive game. I reckon. Is there a rule where 6 players from the previous game have to play?

I reckon...

Alnwick

Nottingham - Anderton-Bushiri- Heneghan - MacDonald

Scannell -Virtue-Guy

Hardie-Nuttall


I think the rule is that 4 outfield players from the last game must start.

Bushiri is away with Belgium U21s.

Blackpool XI: Mafoumbi, Nottingham, Heneghan, Anderton, Feeney, Macdonald, Virtue, Guy, Scannell, Hardie, Nuttall

Suppose we should be thankful for small mercies 😂
Good start 
Minutes in the legs. 
Just checking in, did they use actual shrimps for players?

Just got back from restaurant so not been checking the scores. My team prediction was pretty close. Nice score as well.
Not a bad score.  Wonder if Lee was there, doing a video. 

Sounds positive. Minutes for Scannell and first goals for Hardie and Nuttall.

Trying to find the attendance...


Attendance: 2,219 (189 Morecambe)

No way looks that amount but not arsed about inflated figures anymore 😀

For a fiver, I’d have gone. 
Just listening to Grayson and he says Callum MacDonald was man of the match. That's a good sign even though Husband did nothing wrong against Portsmouth.
As I understand, he can play in front of a back four too. 

Would this have happened in the Oyston era? Work on the pitch straight after a game.
