Found this online and appears legitimate following the official full ratings release yesterday.
Thoughts? Kaikai at a 66 rating seems quite harsh to me. Spearing is our highest at 68 whilst Hardie has a 64 rating and Nuttall has been put down at 63.
Confirmed - signed on loan until the 14th of January 2020.
Am I the only one wondering why we've only got him until January as opposed to a full one year loan? Super news nonetheless!
Alan Nixon has said on Twitter that a deal is close - reckons we are also in for Calum MacDonald at Derby.
Tilt, Edwards and Heneghan would make a very promising back three.
Last posted 4 years ago - figured I'd finally get back on the forum again what with our new era etc!
Will be following this game abroad as I reckon we'll get to see some of the new signings given chances - suspect we'll see Nuttall start and potentially Hardie too. Competition for places will really benefit us this season and suspect we might see the likes of Nuttall given a proper game on Saturday if he impresses.
Onwards and upwards! 😄
Will hopefully be attending the Reading game on the 25th as I've just started university here. Is there anyone here likely to be coming [apart from the Hampshire user who's already mentioned it!] and if so, are you paying in advance from the Blackpool FC ticket office? Me and my flatmates have been quoted £19pp in the Reading end, just got to convince them to come the Tangerine way :D
The more annoying thing to me however is that Cubero seems to have been completely overlooked as a Blackpool player, despite the fact he should be statistically miles better than the current crop! Anyone know why he's been omitted? I'd hazard a guess that he wasnt registered in time but I'm still not convinced...
I'll say this however. Just last night I saw people post on the Brentford prep thread about how a loss tonight and to Wigan on Saturday would essentially spell out our relegation. Whilst things are bad, I'll point to Reading in the 2011/2012 season as my example of choice. In early September they looked to be in freefall as their squad [decimated by departures such as Shane Long] languished at the foot of the league. It was from this position that Reading embarked on a massive run of wins that got them promoted to the Premier League, with nothing but belief and pride to keep them on their way. If you want to look at that with skepticism, take a look at Crystal Palace last November who looked perilous in the Prem with a poor squad. After a change in ideals and management, their results improved dramatically and won them universal acclaim.
Ladies and gentlemen, I don't want to fill you with false hope. Things at Blackpool are very poor and need improving at a very fast rate. It's worth considering though, when we take flak from our friends and the media about how poor we are, that we've still got a lot to prove. This is a squad without a proper pre-season and with players that haven't gelled together. I have faith that the squad can and will improve under Riga and this will take time. We are too big and supportive a fanbase to crumble after a first few games that have went badly. Teams have always improved, and I'm confident that we will too. We will always have our faults with the ownership and long may our scrutiny continue but in the meantime we need to pledge total support to the squad who have potential to do well [I can't wait to see Cubero personally!] I hope you folks agree with me and I welcome anything you want to add with. Right now, Blackpool FC is a battle. But I'm confident we'll win the war :)
P.S. On an unrelated note, I'm starting a degree at the University of Reading in September and will be trying to attend Blackpool matches whilst I'm there. If anyone is coming to the Reading game on the 25th of October, I'll most probably be there and would really like to meet some of you guys. Cheers!
