new ground for most i take it and maybe new town saying that.

never mind what the away seats will be like should be a good weekend for all stopovers on the lash.

seem to recall one chelsea fan from that neck of woods who be happy as pig in muck,d**e b***y

used to run the doors up there and not a backwards step in him.

back to blackpool football club i think they will muster more points than what burnley did this term,but

weather thats enough to aviod the drop is anyones guess

I went to Blackpool's ground with Chelsea in the 70's, but apparently they've done it up a bit since then. It would be a good weekend out for Chelsea fans if the game was played in the warmer months of the season, August or May would be great.

Isn't it strange that the well known seaside resorts in this country have such manky football teams? Blackpool, Brighton, Saarfend, Bournemouth, Scarborough, Morecambe, Torquay, etc...

the blackpool ground as all been redone apart from the awayend to which they are in the process to some extent .

put it this way some of the seating on the awayend is nicknamed the golf club stand

as that what is is/was a scaffolding effort,as you was saying be better if chelsea was by the seaside in the warmer months.

I wouldn't know about the away end, we all went in the home end to make friends with the locals. For some weird reason there were little seperate mobs of Rangers & Septic in there too, beating the crap out of each other. The local police didn't know who to nick first, Chelsea, Blackpool, Rangers or Septic, absolute mayhem :D

We went up there on the Friday night in a transit van, about 20+ of us, and in the morning made our way to the railway station to wait for the Chelsea football specials to arrive. The first train that came in was full of drunken yobs, so naturally we thought it was the first special - turned out to be a load of Septic fans. Unknown to us at the time, Blackpool had two stations, one serving the north, the other the south - trust us to find the wrong one! Things turned out well soon after that though, as we found the right station, and then the pubs opened and were quickly filled with thirsty Chelsea fans. Great day out, though I don't remember a thing about the match or coming home, must be down to Alzheimer's or maybe a dodgy pint on the day :D

we had the same problem in blackpool in mid 1990s,cfc were at man cit-eh on the sunday and me and me mate crossed the pennines from yorkshire and upto blackpool for a stop over saturday nite.the blackpool/chelsea doorman connection been the host.me and matey were sat in pub outside blackpool train st,the correct one might i add waiting for chelsea mates from down south pulling in.

as i said were sat in this pub on us tod when about 15 lads walk in,turns out they are from wigan and support cit-eh

are northern accents threw them when we said we was doncaster rovers in pool for weekend.one wigan lad then showed us his tatto colllection and he had cit-eh,chelsea,leeds,wigan and everton tats,very starnge i thought.

anyway they leave us alone and chelsea lot come in 30mins later there is about 6 of us in all.we meet up with are host

and go on lash.later on in afternoon we cross paths with the 15 wigan/cit-eh lads but nowt seems a miss to us.well not untill the doormen in the pub talk to our host and they have overhear the wigan mob point are host out for something

that went off with blackpool/wigan season before.

are host tracks down where this wigan mob are drinking was a pub called the castle,it was packed with the wigan lads and loads of piss heads from barnsley.host talks to doormen and they tell do what you want but you only have 10mins as the police will have to be called and leave the pub via back exit.

7 of us 15 of them,the wigan lot spot are host straight away and you just know its going to go off,host says 'surround them' fcuk me i thought how do you do that as numbers dont match.like i said in thread 'our host never takes backwards step' it was not far off a one man war as he smashed them all over the top end of pub.any wigan that tried to come round back of him were floored by hosts back up.the wigan lot were not happy with me as they gave us a pass early on in day

'football for yer fellas'

things started to turn when the barnsley lot then joined in with the wigan lads fealing sorry for yhem i guess,doormen then came in split two fractions up and let us walk out back exit

if anybody knows lad ima on about form blackpool you must have seen him do his party trick which is too neck down full bottles of hp daddies sauce for fun of it

think the ground only holds 14,000 total which will mean away tickets will be hard to get hold of .

Joke to me that a club ground that small is allowed in the premier league

They're trying to build a new stand ready for next season.

And what else would you suggest anyway? Well done you've worked your way up the leagues and into the Premiership, very commendable but oh sorry your stadiums a bit small so we're not letting you in? :|

Stop being a football snob :lol:

Good luck to'em - 6 points I hope.

The Ian Holloway interview after the game, in the dressing-room was one of the best, most sincere interviews you'll see a manager give these days.

They do it for clubs being promoted into the football league so think a set of rules should also apply to the premier league . A host of non- league clubs were denied promotion to the football league as their grounds were not up to scratch

Should be 23,000 min. to play in the premier league to me

It happened to Stevenage a few years back. They won the Conference but were denied a place in the Football League because their stadium wasn't big enough. Took until this season for them to manage it again.

sure kiddyminster harriers had the exact same problem sometime in 1990's

they could not get into football league from conf due to ground not been upto scratch

in same season kiddyminster had a home game in facup 3rd against west ham i belive towhich

powers that be were more than happy to allow kiddy play their game at home,only for them to get the knock

back when after winning the conference.

there is/was more than enough league grounds that would not pass getting back into the league

from conference if all was played by kiddyminsters rule of thumb back then.

as for blackpool i cant see them finishing that golf stand by start of new season,it will just be very few away

fans i guess as they will sell home seats out ten fold.

sooner or later some club from lower ranks will get into prem and due to ground size or lack of size i can see

that club only having home fans only policy with lockouts for every game,that way they dont have to have extra police etc etc to pay for,and a full ground for every home game in the premiership fixtures

Every 2nd Division side had that in place during the 76/77 season for when they played Chelsea. Didn't seem to work too well as I recall... :)

Yeah, we were banned in the early 80's too for a while, but the 76/77 season sticks in my mind more. We had a huge away following for a 2nd Division side, so when about 5,000/10,000 of us turned up for an away game the police always let us in the ground rather than have us wandering around the town - great days!

i was there back then, but didn't even think of going for the weekend. my impression was "what a dump" but that was the admittedly prejudiced attitude of most Chelsea fans back then going up north.

i remember on the way up to some other away match meeting this West Ham fan - friend of a friend so there was no trouble, who'd moved to Blackpool and got well involved. he told me they loved him up there, called him the Mad Cockney. of course he could have just been saying that to impress...
