God knows what’s going to happen. We could win this 2-0 or loose 0-2.

That’s of course if the grass has been cut!

We're not going to win the rest of the games this season, so even if we can keep up a moderate amount of improvement, how we cope with a loss is going to come up eventually.

Maybe not this week though.

3-2

1 defeat in 15 games for them, they hit a patch of form since ex Town loanee Dan Ballard joined them in January. WWWLWWWDDWDDWWD.

In home games vs them Town have won 6 drawn 9 and lost 3 scoring 25 and conceding 23 goals here.

Our biggest win a 4-1 in 84 when Alan Mayes bagged a hattrick.

Our heaviest defeat was the embarrassing 6-2 defeat in Sept 86 under Macari a game that proved to be the end of the line for Town keeper Kenny Allen who was replaced in the next game by Fraser Digby. We had the last laugh that season though as we were promoted via the PO's and Blackpool finished mid table.

That defeat in 86 was Blackpools last win at the County Ground a run of 7 games unbeaten for Swindon.

Keshi Anderson is out for the game but ex Town loanees Ballard and Yates are in a good run of form with Yates sitting on 17 goals in all comps (including 7 penalties).

They also have ex Town players Kevin Stewart and Stuart Moore as well as assistant manager Colin Calderwood.

Swindon 0-3 Blackpool.

Bez Lubala will not be playing tomorrow no matter what as he is suspended by the club.

https://www.blackpoolgazette.co.uk/sport/football/blackpool-fc/bez-lubala-unavailable-for-blackpool-due-to-club-matter-3186117

CJ Hamilton who scored both goals in the away game looks unlikely to feature as well as he is injured, as is Gary Madine, Marvin Ekpiteta, Keshi Anderson and Matty Virtue, they are likely to have 3 teenagers on the bench again filling the slots.

They will come to the CG full of confidence.

Even though Sheridactly has said we will be unchanged tomorrow I hope we start with Garrick instead of Joel Grant and possibly Missilou on his return from international duty with DRC.

There’s some strange ones on their forum. One was reminiscing about winning 5-0 when we had Gorman in charge.

They’ve never beaten us 5-0, and when Gorman was in charge Blackpool were 2 leagues below us.

There has been a shit load of draws between the 2 clubs over time.

Yeah they dont seem the brightest bunch of sparklers. They showed this before the last game with them in the comments.

They thrashed us 6-2 under Macari in 86 but since then haven't won at the CG in 7 visits, strange lot.

Hmm, according to the table, we’ve only beaten one side better than Blackpool - Hull, who also beat us.

And, of course, we’ve been beaten by a lot of teams worse than Blackpool.

I’d see a draw today as a bonus point as I’m fully expecting a comprehensive defeat.

Looking back at the first game, CJ Hamilton was their main threat, so a relief that he might be missing today.
If the replacement has pace then Thompson will need to help Ian Dolo out.
Was also impressed by their left back, Demetri Mitchell?.
Maybe Garrick would give him more to think about if leaving space behind than Joel Grant.

There will be a some irritation in seeing Jerry Yates not playing for us.
Under normal circumstances would have expected his signing to be a relatively straightforward exercise in the summer.
Similarly, the blood pressure might also go up a notch or two with Jonny Smith attacking the wrong end on Monday.

An unexpected point today would be excellent. Three would be a huge step towards staying up.

In all seriousness, taking the games in isolation I'm not expecting to get anything out of the game today and would take a point on Monday. The problem with that of course is that you can't take the games in isolation - if we do get a point out of the next two games, that leaves us needing to win at least 3, probably 4, of the remaining 7 games and we've been nowhere near that kind of form all season. So we probably need to get a draw today and a win Monday, which on the back of the last 2 wins, would in itself be a remarkable run of form. We're just running out of time.

At this part of the season more so than the early part praying for your team to win is as important as praying your relegation competitors lose. Some fixtures over the next two matches that could well benefit us if we don’t do so well and really give us hope if we do ok or better than expected and the others don’t.

Yes, and the one good thing is that by definition our competitors are also shit, so if we can string some results together we can at least rely on most of them to lose.

Well, let me cover the positive because the rest of my post is going to get pelters from some people!

For 5 mins we looked quite good, we had the best chance bar the goal and for 10-15 minutes it seemed Garrick might be OK.

Right, the rest of the half was a debacle waiting to happen.  Back to the shit we've tried in previous weeks of just sticking people in positions behind the ball and conceding the game.  On top of that they snuffed out our only threat.  If we get a 0-0 by the end of the game you take it, but it was asking for trouble and it came with a non-centre back exposed as will always be likely.  They've had a a couple of previous entries where they were undone by their own lack of quality, but you can't just play like San Marino and hope to get something from a game against competent opposition.

I thought it was atrocious watching overall, Blackpool look better than us by a margin, but even they were passing to advertising hoardings for most of that half.

Still, only a goal in it, get a lucky break and who knows, but it's ugly stuff.

Need to be a big more positive as we were in the first 15 mins. Last 20 mins we sat back in our shape defending.

We don't have any creative skill, so will need to start the second half like we did the first. Scare them more with Garrick. Then, hopefully Twine will get into the game and draw a few free kicks on the edge of the box. We have. Little else to offer

Post by: RobertT on Friday, April 2, 2021, 15:55:32
The way to turn the game around is the approach to defending, which may sound odd.  For most of that half we were simply getting into set positions to defend, which meant they could gather possession and reset every time they had it, with zero pressure.  You change it by applying pressure to their men in possession in their half and at half way rather than standing back halfway between our own goal and halfway.  The way we set-up you can only win possession back by your own box, then we have to get 3/4 of the pitch to theirs, which is hopeless when you are simply knocking it long to a man with no support (because everyone else is so far away from him).  For the first 10/15 Garrick was an outlet but they seem to have figured out how to nullify him or are simply not as worried as they were initially.

As the game progressed we looked more and more like an away team, defending deep and letting them have possession in areas that were not really hurting us until a ball over the top that did not carry and hence a goal down. We will have to show far more enterprise second half or this is no points come 4-45.

Thompson, Twine, Palmer have all been effectively passengers for all but the first 15 mins of that game.

Not sure how we can change it with the players available on the bench though.

I fear we will play 2nd half much like we ended the half, on the back foot hoping to hit them on the break.

Chalk and cheese performances as always by Town, no pressing, not much quality, not much hope.

We go a goal down and the TEF reverts to wrist-slashing type.

Dare I say it, those two games came post Sheridan throwing in the towel a little with little break between games, so they were more "thrown together" reactions than any great plan.  We've had a small break now to prepare for this one...............

I think that's harsh. The performance against Fleetwood was a good one. Less so against rovers but we defended well enough. I don't like Sheridan but credit where credit's due and all that.

Unfair. Thought he had been solid up until then and I still think it might have been offside

Yeah he's been fine generally but got done by the attacker for the first (although it was Camp who was stood in no mans land) and was miles behind the defensive line for the second. Given how awful we've been most of the season, this hasn't been horrendous. Blackpool look a really tidy side, certainly one of the better I've seen us play. Kept up with them for 30 mins and then they turned the screw a bit but we held our own until the first really.

Wasn't expecting much from today but reasonably pleased with how we've played, little bit toothless but we've had some chances at least.

I'm not saying Sheridan doesn't get any credit for the response in that game against Fleetwood, but this game is suggesting it was a reactionary throwing something together than any great plan based on principles.  This game looks, on the face of it, like the ones before, which may be because he has had more time on the training field to plan an approach.  It's not a statement of fact, just a thought.  To be fair, Blackpool are pretty good for this league.

Absolutely.

Anyone who went into this game full of optimism after the last 2 wins really was delusional. Blackpool are the form side in the division.

We didn't press them after the first 20 mins and they took advantage of that to the fullest, we had a few half chances that we didn't take, they had 2 good chances which they scored from. Not only possession but they have been way more clinical than us.

Disagree. Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman wins headers and bullies the defence. His legs have gone so he doesn't do much else. He's been offside a lot today, but Smith is ALWAYS offside. He runs about but his finishing isn't good enough. Hope just flatters to deceive. Not good enough to play on the left nor up top.

Also think they were the worst possible team for our makeshift backline to play against. Unlike Fleetwood and Rovers they look to and have the quality to get in behind and you end up with the likes of Iandolo having to defend runners in behind which we know from his games at left back he really struggles with and resulting in both goals today.

Most of the result went our way at the bottom at least, we didn't give up and fold as previously we have done.

Not a great performance but as others have said it was far from the worst, at least a few players put in a shift without much end product though.

Blackpool passed it better (after the first 20 mins) and were far more clinical in front of goal than us with 2 decent strikers who both bagged a goal today.

Tight as a gnats chuff at the bottom and Monday is a big ole game for us, lose and we are back in the mire but grab a win and the table will look way better. Each team will be playing leapfrog until the final game of the season.

Routine for a pretty decent Blackpool.

first half first 20 were ok. last 20 was reverting to utter shit.

serving half  had more endeavour, but we didn't do anything of note until they scored the second. It was a pretty much non event.

we've played worse, but Blackpool has better quality and deserved it

Monday was always a bigger game for us

- Wasn't alot between the teams
- Gifted them the 2 goals
- We had the better chances in the game
- Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman had the best chances and should have scored in first half
- They had possession without hurting us
- Killer blow was scoring just before 1/2 time
- Iandolo has played well in the last few games but was slow stepping up. Looked a good finish, but it was down to Iandolo being too slow
- Why we are playing offside for the second goal I don't know, because we dont do that
- We looked tired. But that shouldnt be the case
- Not going to be hard on them
- Importance of the upcoming game against Burton
- Subs were thinking about the big game on Monday. Give some people a bit of game time
- Didnt think the performance was too bad and we could have got something from the game
- They had 73% of the ball in the first 1/2. Were you happy with that? No, we weren't brave enough to get onto the ball. Totally agree that we shouldnt have given them so much possession
- If we'd stayed 1-0 Sheridan thought we could still get something from the game
- Should have been brave enough to move them around and disturb them
- When we did move the ball quickly, we got chances.
- Not pressing well enough high enough up the pitch
- Played against a good team against Blackpool. Should have been on the front foot a bit more. Told the players to do that, but they didn't. We did in the last 2 games which is why we got results
- A lot of the game was in the middle of the pitch. Not may chances
- We are going to be up and down. We need to get ready for Burton
- Missilou has done too much travelling. He'll be available for Monday
- Lyden not ready for Monday. Same squad plus Missilou.

- Sheridan said they should have attacked more, but players seemed to drop into a shape they were comfortable with
- Swindon were keeping Blackpool at arms length
- We looked comfortable, but playing like that, you will always make a mistake. But when you make a mistake, you need to have enough to be able to come back from it
- Everyone will ask 'Why were we so passive in the first half?'
- Getting to the stage when you look at who everyone has got to play. You dont want to be playing teams who have something to play for at the top of at the bottom.
- Northampton have stolen a march by beating Shrews today.

Hartley part 3:
- The 4-2 win against Burton was the best game of the season
- We got out to a 3-0 lead but Burton did peg us back and were unlucky not to get something out of the game
- Burton look like they have enough to get out of trouble
- J Smith was key lynchpin for Burton's good run recently
- They are off the top of their form from a few weeks back.
- Suspect that Burton will see the Town game as a big one for them too
- Both sides might try to eek out a point each
- Last year we were looking forward to going to big grounds. Will be a kick in the teeth if fans are allowed back and we have to go to Harrogate, Barrow and the like next year.
- Back to Blackpool game. Pivotal moment was the Payne chance in the second half. Had he scored, we could have got something out of the game
- For their first goal, Lee Camps position was a bit wrong. Iandolo was too far up the pitch. It bounced perfectly for Simms to fire it in.

J Grant:
- A defeat which is never good. We just have to bounce back
- They controlled possession well in the first half
- They didnt threaten much. Good finish for the first goal
- Just have to be ready when the manager asks you to play
- Confidence? Every individual is different. As a team we have done well in the last few weeks
- This season individually it has not been good. Injury disrupted season and still trying to get back fitness now
- Not putting added pressure on vs Burton. All games are the same. All of the last 8 games are big
- All teams at bottom will be fighting. We will do our best to get away from trouble
- The whole season has been strange. We have been training well. Need to improve on Monday
- All season we have had games where we should have done better in or played well and lost
- Tough when you are down there. Everything seems to go against you
- We are in control of our own destiny.

Camp 6
-   Slightly out of position for their first goal. Little chance with the second

Caddis 6.5
-   Thought he played well and linked well at times with Garrick

Odimayo 6.5
-   Had a good game. One last ditch challenge in the first half.

Grant 7
-   Played well and snuffed Yates out in the first half. Couple of great interceptions

Iandalo 5
-   Beaten for the first goal and at fault for the second. Distribution was poor in the first half. Other than that he was steady.

Thompson 5
-   Didn’t really offer a lot

Payne 5
-   One piece of skill and pass to Garrick in the first half. Defended well, but offered little going forward

Palmer 5
-   Again playing a spoiling role but not offering much going forward. Corners didn’t find any of our players

Twine 4
-   Didnt get into the game

Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman 6
-   Won lots of headers, but was offsite a bit today. Service to him was poor. One chance in the first half where he seemed to slip before connecting. Hit post in the second half with a strong connection but offside

Garrick 6.5
-   Was a clear 7/8 in the first 20 mins of the game, but faded . Linked well with Caddis. Is improving and was the only one offering a threat – When I say threat, I mean causing difficulty for Blackpool rather than threatening the goal.

Subs:
J Grant 5
-   Saw him touch the ball in the corner a couple of time.
Hope 5
-   Couple of misdirected headers

Smith 5
-   Dropped deep and got a foul. Dont remember much else

Grounds 5
-   Didnt see him do anything wrong.

Whether we stay up or not will depend on whether we  can get 10 points from the 5 remaining away games, as I can't see us getting anything from the 3 home games against Peterborough, Portsmouth and Ipswich.

Likely that Franchise will be too good for us so 10 from Burton, Rochdale, Wimbledon and Wigan it is. Think that's doable but can see it going down to the last game.

We can't get beat at Burton as that will leave them 8 points in front of us with a game in hand just leaving us and Northampton battling to stay out of the bottom four with only seven left to play.

Of course it is all down to opinions but I think the remaining home games are a better chance for us to sneak a few points than the Blackpool game or some of our remaining away games.
Also credit where credit is due, so, Sheridan deserves any stick he gets for today as it was plainly poor.
Whilst I’m (for me) ranting, cant understand the love for Tyler Smith or for that matter J Grant, Hope and (I’ll expect a death threat or two)  Brett + many Bretts ! Little if anything to offer sadly. Wish they did but they don’t.
Brett x many was decent in his day no argument but through no lack of effort only can offer what we need in patches. I also appreciate we have no other choice so hope somehow they can do the stuff.
Hoping we can still salvage this season by staying up. We have a chance but we really need the previous two games positive approach rather than today’s standing off 10 yard plan.
Hope A Grant and Odimayo are still with us next season

Also credit where credit is due, so, Sheridan deserves any stick he gets for today as it was plainly poor.
Whilst I’m (for me) ranting, cant understand the love for Tyler Smith or for that matter J Grant, Hope and (I’ll expect a death threat or two)  Brett + many Bretts ! Little if anything to offer sadly. Wish they did but they don’t.
Brett x many was decent in his day no argument but through no lack of effort only can offer what we need in patches. I also appreciate we have no other choice so hope somehow they can do the stuff.
Hoping we can still salvage this season by staying up. We have a chance but we really need the previous two games positive approach rather than today’s standing off 10 yard plan.
Hope A Grant and Odimayo are still with us next season

Thing is Tyler Smith showed plenty of promise but then you can expect performances like yesterday when you get left out in the cold for so long

As I mentioned earlier, now more than ever we are dependant on other results to bale us out of a shit storm we should never ever had been in. Yesterday with the exception of Northampton, results went in our favour and as has been said we really cannot afford to lose on Monday at The Brewers, especially if other results again go in our favour.
