There is a player in Anderson, somewhere.  He showed signs last season he has something, but he's so tough to include in a team, looks like he needs a lot of hard work from the coaching team and the injury issues last season were a bit worrying.  I wonder if his hamstrings are bit like Owen's turned into?  Given our recruitment last season, I'm more than happy to let Wellens get on with it.  He hasn't brought in many duds and hasn't shipped out anyone that we've missed.

Maybe he’ll have a similar impact to Matt Preston leaving for Mansfield.

You mean "free agent" Matt Preston Wink yep, but to be fair he never said Mansfield was a "massive club" when he left.

Ultimately as good as he was at times this season he was absent when our form really picked up after the Plymouth game and he didn’t play in any of our big wins like against Plymouth, Exeter & Crewe. He was useful but not a key player for us.

Blackpool were in the premiership ten years ago. Not sure why you’d sniff at the ‘bigger’ club comment - i bet in the eyes of most impartial people they would be

Yep, exactly. If you can keep him fit he could do ok but L1 is the highest he can play wth his final ball being as poor as it currently is.

On their forums their fans are massively unimpressed, not good enough and too similar to Kaikai and Delfouneso apparently.

Anderson saying he is "delighted to be joining a Club the size of Blackpool". Yes massive step up from another team in the same division with almost exactly the same size crowds, nice one Keshi.

In fairness, they were in the PL not all that long ago and the potential is there to compete at a higher level than L1. Is it a huge step up from Swindon? No, but he didn't say it was. Sadler seems to be taking the club in the right direction since he took over and I imagine it's an attractive prospect right now.

To be honest when you look at the matches he didn’t play in on paper then we actually were much better without him, he came back in against Ecotricity in our last game where we were in good form and well that wasn’t exactly a masterclass.

Not having that. Maybe when Stanley Matthews was playing. Were we a ‘big club’ 10 years after playing in the PL? Were we bollocks.

Football is all about the here and now. They’ve taken a massive gamble on an untried manager. Be disappointed not to finish above them.

I think Anderson would do well if he is played through the middle and have a licence to not track back and have players around him willing to give him the ball early.

Overall I'm not that fussed he's leaving as at times he was a luxury player, although on his day he was unstoppable just sadly no often enough, I have a feeling he will be replaced with a player that is more consistent though.

Maybe that’s why Wellens signed Palmer. We all thought it was odd at the time with us having a decent clutch of midfielders.

I have to say, with the greatest of respect to him, Anderson is one of the two players I'd be least bothered about losing. The other being Woolery.

The “bigger club” comment will always trigger some fans, it’s hardly unusual for a new signing to big up his new club so to speak.

It’s not exactly an outrageously inaccurate comment anyway, they have been more relevant than us during the last 20 years or so.

Agreed.

Improved greatly this season but he will only be a good player in a good side.

We will be disappointed with some going and excited by a few coming in.

This one like Woolery if he goes, i shrug and look at the inbox.
