Have Morecambe appointed a new manager yet?
Derek Adams, ex Plymouth
Not bothering with this one. 

I'm going would you believe it.

Blackpool 3-0 Morecambe

I’ve been pessimistic as of late so I’m going to change that.

Blackpool 5 Morecambe 1

Pool 6-1 Morecambe

Sullay double HT. 

Thompson might play as on international duty against Wimbledon. 
Beat 'em 5-1 in the Leasings Trophy but this is the FA Cup and we all know what can happen. I'll be optimistic though and go for the same scoreline 5-1.

They will want to impress their new manager.


Think it will be comfortable but I guess you never know in the FA Cup. 

Was going to purchase tickets at the match but says only permitted to Block P. Not sure why, maybe suggests it will be a low crowd. 

So it looks like only half the ground is open. 

Seems madness that they only have one turnstile open for match tickets. Looks like a big queue. 

Unless there’s a mad rush this morning, it’s a low crowd. 
Yes even those available blocks are sparse. Block E for me today. 
In the Bloomfield Club. Where is everybody?
None of that in here. The smell of crisps and beer. Sexy. 
The guy next to me is on avftt. Fucking hands all over the place trying to zoom in and out to read.

Sleeping's cheating. 

Surprised Grayson has gone with his first team. I suppose the only question mark is keeping Tilt out for Husband. Thompson a bit unlucky but apparently Guy was excellent in midweek.

I going with  HIM 🖕 The score by the way.


Goal. Not sure what happened but they are shit. It was coming. 

Getting dripped on in the stand. Oyston legacy. 

Getting sloppy
Is it raining there, blue  Sky here. 😀

Flat atmosphere. We've gone really shit. They are the better team and have just hit the bar. We can't keep hold of the ball and defence all over the place.
