Under Blackpool’s lights



Sir Alex Ferguson’s side faces an unpredictable trip north to Blackpool on Tuesday night, with Ian Holloway’s side notoriously durable opponents. Facing a backlog of fixtures, Holloway’s newly promoted side takes on one of England’s heavyweights at Bloomfield Road, with Manchester United seeking a five point lead in the Premier League.

Conforming to the cliché that there are no easy fixtures in the Premier League – despite Roberto Martinez’ best efforts over at the DW – the Tangerines are a resolute bunch, playing an attacking 4-3-3 system where the erratic finishing of Dudley Campbell is nevertheless imperative. The 29-year-old former Birmingham City striker’s tally of seven goals this season has largely repaid the club record £1.25 million fee.

Indeed, Holloway has done a fine job of turning what many thought of as Championship level players into Premier League survivors. In demand Scot Charlie Adam has starred but teammate David Vaughan is also has a player with a terrific range of passing. Across the board under-rated players have excelled under Holloway’s management, with Luke Varney integral to the side alongside Vaughan, Adam and Campbell.

Ferguson has taken stock of Blackpool’s remarkable rise, in which he hailed Holloway’s influence on the seasiders.

“No doubt the manager of the year so far is Ian Holloway,” said Ferguson.

“They’ve been a breath of fresh air – they’ve been positive and lit up the game… they are throwing four or five players forward into the box to get on the end of crosses all the time. They are really having a go and saying if we’re going to fail, let’s fail gloriously.”

The form book says Blackpool has won just one of its last six just as United hits top gear, but as Avram Grant can testify, in football anything is possible. It’s a fact of which Ferguson and his multi-millionaire players will no doubt be wary, especially given United’s nerve-racking performances away from home this season.

Ferguson will be tempted to rest his leading stars for the short trip to Blackpool but whoever the opponent the home side guarantees huge endeavor. It’s a fact illustrated by Manchester City’s recent fixtures against Holloway’s side. At Bloomfield Road it required David Silva’s ‘world class’ goal to beat the home side, while the return fixture was a tough 1-0 win for City.

Still, Ferguson may be tempted to rest Michael Carrick, Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs and Patrice Evra, with each suffering injuries recently. Rafael da Silva returns after suspension but brother Fabio could come into the side or John O’Shea retain his place in any case. Meanwhile, Gabriel Obertan, Darron Gibson and Chris Smalling could all feature at some stage.

Chalkboard v BlackpoolHowever, with an FA Cup tie against League One Southampton to come next weekend Ferguson is under no pressure to make wholesale changes, with the Reds chasing a 27th unbeaten league game. It could be a high scoring fixture too – Blackpool has hit the net in every home fixture since Derby County visited in August 2009.

Meanwhile, Holloway’s preparations for the game have been hit by Adam’s transfer request after Liverpool submitted a £4 million bid over the weekend. The angry Blackpool manager hit out at Liverpool Director of Football Damien Comolli’s approach for the Blackpool captain.

“[Liverpool] have to come up with the right amount of money,” said Holloway, who confirmed that Adam will play against United tomorrow night.

“I don’t want to stand in his way, but they have to put up or shut up. [Comolli] ummed and aahed and apparently did not make much sense.

“Charlie loves this club and just because he puts a transfer request in doesn’t change that.”

Holloway must also face the leaders without Chris Basham, David Carney, Stephen Crainey, Billy Clarke, Matt Gilks and Malaury Martin. Even without the absentees it’s a daunting prospect for Holloway’s men, who have not hosted United for 36 years or beaten the Reds since 1963.

It’s a record few expect the Tangerines to improve on tomorrow night.

    Hopefully no Carrick and all that “he works under the radar” bollocks. We looked far more positive and meaningful without him at the weekend.

    Same team should equate to a similar result. Blackpool’s honeymoon period is clearly over, and are going to find it really hard from now on. I’d like to see Scholesy make some kind of contribution, he’s a fuckin belter! 4-4-2 should do it nicely.

  • han

    blackpool are a nightmare
    don’t know when to stop their attacking even if it means leaving gaping holes in their rear
    united should really go to town and stick it up them big time
    still, a 1-0 win would do me nicely

  • Neil

    I’m hoping for another high scoring game. I’ve been looking forward to this game for a long time.

  • herbie simms

    Hope SAF plays his best team. Blackpool are a dangerous at home against top teams. Seem to pull off these giant-killer acts.

  • Spike

    Block out Adam and our midfield has a chance…0:2

  • http://twitter.com/dosdamt Ben Hulston

    I agree with Han. Their aggressive, constant attacking should allow us to be at our counter attacking best. Play with considerable pace and we should get this one. Still, Blackpool have been a tough side to beat all season, I don’t expect that to change tonight. We should respect them and play our best side, and be cut throat from the start. No pish missed chances is acceptable.

  • http://twitter.com/dosdamt Ben Hulston

    We very rarely do our business in public. I would suggest it isn’t anyone we’d expect, and that the transfer will be done in the summer.

  • Triggs

    Hopefully all the Adam stuff will disrupt them. Nani should rip them apart.

  • uncleknobheadforfucksake

    blackpool have loads of players I’ve never heard of

    expecting cathcart to dominate vidic though

    we’ll win

    it’s our game in hand, massive game for us – is Rio back?

    will hairu vagina hands Keys and Ugly Jim Davidson, Andy Gray be commenting? Hilarious that his has made the front pages.

    Ffs, if Clarkson was caught cocking around no one would give a fuck.

  • Dinkinflicker

    This is completely and utterly set up for a banana skin – t’will be Burnley from last year all over again, mark my words.

  • madredmonkey

    Should be a good game blackpool, have been great this season, but we have the players to beat them 1-3 united.

  • madmax

    We are away from home ffs. 1-1

  • http://none ian

    I can see no future in O’Shea; another chance to give Fabio experience. We will need some pace on the break so I hope that Nani & Rooney both start; both of them are due to score two or three in a match. Since Gibson is a member of the squad, like O’Shea, there is a temptation to pick him; hope not. I wonder IF Adam has a very good game will SAF be interested in signing him?

  • sidney

    No faffing because Blackpool will be up for it

    I’ve a feeling Rooney is going to bust out tonight.

    This game will really suit him… The Blackpool defense is decent enough, but a bit too gung ho for their own good… and with Berbatovs recent form, I expect Blackpool to focus on him… Rooney should get a fair bit of freedom.

    Mega! No Carrick. Should be a good attacking outfit tonight. No half arsed tackling and cheap giving the ball away. Well, at least the main culprit can’t be accused of it.

    We go to Bloomfield Road and we start with Scholes and Gibson!!! Where on earth were we expecting the pace to come from? Where? Can someone please tell me how the game is going? Am at work so not watching.
    For this game I blame our manager for the line-up. ANYONE who has seen Blackpool at home this season will know they play at a ferocious tempo and yet we start with these snails!! Ah well…

    Nani, Anderson, Gibson, Hernandez, the Twins are our future. Please go Neville, Scholes and Giggs. Give Fletcher the skipper’s armband.

    don’t think anybody we wld have put in there would have coped with those cunts coming at us 100 mph for 45 mins. Gibson was a complete fart cake.

    at least Fletch made a tackle or two

    the sad reality is that Blackpool were too fast and too strong for Rooney – that is the biggest worry

    see how brute technique and skill of the likes of Berbs and Giggs and raw lighting speed of Chico pulled them apart

    I think today, Berba has turned his corner – no United fan can say that he is not worth his salt.

    Danni, the sad thing is that the midfield we put out there was given the complete run around. Anderson would have added more control and forced Blackpool on the back foot a bit more with his runs. He certainly would have held the ball a lot better than Fletcher.

    I didn’t think even Berbatov would get us out of that situation as much as I have admired him this season. Glad to see that I was wrong about him. It was a massive call taking Rooney off. It’s not something you normally see Fergie do.

    Rooney needs to learn that he is not beyond being substituted or not even being selected in the first place when he isn’t performing.

    true – am still clinging on to the hope that we get the old Fletcher back and not this tired headless chicken – he is playing more like Alan Smith than Alan Smith – am sure he can pull it together but I am sure that Gibson has to be shown the door. he is out of his depth – simple as

    Good call. Not sure Fergie sees it that way, though. If Berba continues scoring (and pretty much showing Rooney up for his lack of goals), it will be interesting to see how Rooney responds. Has he still got the fight in him or is he going to slink away in the shadows? People have been saying all season that Rooney will come good, he’s getting there, etc etc.

    Again, super sub Hernandez. Rooney is not scoring goals,he is the striker and he is putting pressure on Berbatov. Fergie is right to take him off. He is being paid big money to score goals and he has not done nothing this season. Rooney will have to be used as the super sub and start Hernandez up front with Berbatov. If when he comes on as a sub and he still does not score goals, he will have to be sold because he is not doing the job that he is being paid to do and that is to score goals. Thats what happens in professional football, its a business. Rooney is the main striker and he can’t score. Time to bring in a goal-scorer and a playmaker.

    KEEP UP AT THE BACK CUNTWAD!!

  • Dinkinflicker

    On the positive side, you can’t fault the spirit of the side to come back from situations like last night. Its no accident that it keeps happening.

    However, you can’t disregard the fact that for an hour we were absolutely dogshite. We’ve gotten away with it away from home several times this season but we won’t continue to get away with it. I can’t fathom how we can go from the sublime to the ridiculous in the space of 4 days. Midfield seems an obvious problem – Fletcher has gone backwards, Gibson is universally recognised as being wank and to put it mildly opinion on Carrick is divided.

    Wayne’s taken a lot of stick and his performance was poor last night, but no more so than the rest of the team for the hour that he was on. Playing him on the left was never going to work last night and for the life of me I can’t understand why Giggs didn’t start.

    Gone seem to be the days of United going away from home and controlling a game – have we done it at all this season? City, maybe – although we only took a point and didn’t create much. Evertone, perhaps although we all know what happened there.

    Oh well – I’d have murdered my own gran if you’ve offered me a win after 70 minutes so you have to be happy.

  • http://twitter.com/dosdamt Ben Hulston

    Spike is correct – going away to the Bindippers or dirty Chelski, playing so bad in the first half will see us getting spanked. We still need to play Chelski twice, remember.

    Gibson, unfortunately, has had enough chances now. Give Matty James a chance. He can’t do any worse – surely!

    What on earth is going on with Rooney, by the way?! Like Christ on a bike in the Tour de France, he is a mystery this season. I think his form is perhaps symptomatic of the fact that our midfield is completely and utterly filled with terribads. I think we need some new blood in, Gibson, Carrick and Hargreaves out. Ando, Fletch, + 2 others in.

    Still sticking with the fact we should give youth, such as Matty James, a chance.

  • herbie simms

    Blackpool tore the team apart in the first half. I can’t see how Fergie and Phelan can praise the team for the great comeback in the second half. If Blackpool knew how to defend better, it would have been a different result.

    Dongleish and Anchovy aren’t as stupid as blackpool as to go toe to toe for 45 mins and then spend all their energy so that by the 60 min a 36 year old wonder kid can shred them to peices.

    Stop exaggerating how shit we were, ffs, you act as if the Chavs and Dippers haven’t been shit. Why don’t we write down all the shit performances of Chumps and Dippers – if they have been crap this season, who is not to say that they will not be crap against us again.

    What if, what if – what if we do what we did yesterday and tear them a new arsehole with a combination of tactics and luck?

    herbs mate, it’s a game of two halves – literally and metaphorically. its better to have a bad start and a good finish, than the other way around.

    we won and won brilliantly in the end – with luck granted but with some brilliant skill and Fergie tactics.

    think of the message this sends out to Wenger, Mancunty, Redknobb and Anchovy? they must be SICK

  • sidney

    Fergie got it wrong first half and made amends in the second

    It wasn’t the game for a lethargic water carrier like Gibson who “doesn’t do enough” because Blackpool were like fucking wild animals in that first half

    The subs were fucking spot on though, personal wise and timing wise

    What’s clear now is that we have big players and big characters on the bench that can come on and win us games. Giggs, Scholes, Ando, Hernandez and possibly Rooney ’til he finds some form.

  • http://twitter.com/dosdamt Ben Hulston

    Danni, I don’t dispute the dippers and chavski have indeed been extremely poor this season, but they are starting to turn their form now. More than that, we have to go to the Dippers hellfield and play Chelski both home and away. They aren’t friendly fixtures at the best of times.

    I hope we’ve turned a psychological corner with this game, in the sense that fuck going away, it doesn’t matter, because we are Manchester United. We don’t care where we play, because we bring the same quality, determination and grit to every single game.

    It is essential for United to press on now and take a grip on this league. There’s what, 12 – 14 games left? We’re in good form – but the away lapses and the losses of control over the midfield area have to stop if we want to dominate in the trophies we are in.

    at no point in any away game have we had any element of control this season except the city game, where we sacrificed winning the game for controlling it, sticking rooney on the left and a third carthorse in midfield wont change that, it aint good enough

    Dont think Ive seen Rooney subbed so early, on the hour mark about. Hes been crap all season frankly. Chicarito has had a great season so far and deserves to start, calling him a supersub is unfair. Your basically saying Rooney is undroppable. Hes scored ONE goal starting every game for the highest scoring team in the land. Its quite an achievement.

    I hate to call Hernandez a super sub but I’m calling it as it is. Wish SAF would keep Rooney on the subs bench for awhile and start Hernandez. Berbatov and Hernandez up front will bring in the positive results.
