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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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

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

  4. herbie simms says:

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

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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

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

  9. Whoops, wrong thread >,<

  10. uncleknobheadffs uncleknobheadforfucksake says:

    blackpool have loads of players I’ve never heard of

    expecting cathcart to dominate vidic though

    we’ll win

  11. 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.

  12. Dinkinflicker says:

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

  13. madredmonkey madredmonkey says:

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

  14. We are away from home ffs. 1-1

  15. 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?

  16. No faffing because Blackpool will be up for it

  17. we will fart in their faces

  21. hi mad red
    not too sure about that midfield of ours
    hope scholesy can turn back the years and score a peach
    gibson better be focusing on his game tonight

  22. madredmonkey madredmonkey says:
  23. pretty good turn out for this match
    come on united

  24. madredmonkey madredmonkey says:

    Hi Han, not to sure either,but a win is vital so lets go for it.

  25. 7.30 pm kick off too
    now that is rolling back the years
    when was the last time united have played a midweek league game at 7.30? probably in the late 80′s….

  26. im sure that rachubka was on united’s books a few years ago…

  27. madredmonkey madredmonkey says:

    7.30 didn’t realise that thanks Han.

    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.

    Why is it Benzema just can’t seem to hold his place?

  34. shrek will have problem scoring in a granny’s fanny this season
    he will create for sure
    but alas not get on the score sheet

  35. 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.

  36. madredmonkey said:

    but uncledicksuckffs is still here mad red

  37. should have started with anderson instead of gibson

  91. ok reds
    start playing now and stop fucking about

  92. Midfield is too shit even for Blackpool. What a pathetic performance.
    Fergie must take a huge amount of the blame. What the fuck was he thinking: Fletcher and Gibson in midfield. Rooney on the left. Berbatov up front pretty much on his own where he can get fuck all service. Nani has done jack.

  93. oh fuck off gibson

  94. jeeeeeeeeeeeeez the Blackpussy midfield is brilliant – snapping at the ankles

  95. fucking appauling
    real cocksucking performance
    SAF needs to kick these players in their privates

  96. madredmonkey madredmonkey says:

    sort it out alex , this is shocking.

  97. Worst half of football this season?

    Not all Gibson’s fault either, although he and Fletch are fucking wank

    The whole team is shite. No ideas and no creativity. Just lots of moaning and fouls

  98. What death would you think would be appropriate for Gibcunt?

    Chop his nuts off with a rust bread knife and dip his ripped up ballsack into a bottle of Sarsons?

  99. 45 mins to salvage our pride if nowt else
    anderson on for gibcunt
    scholes on a yellow is not good
    send sweet pea on for nani cos the nonce has been shit

  100. I want to rape the fuckin twats right now.

    Invincibles?

    Mother fuckers

  101. Fletcher needs fucking off in January. What the hell does Anderson have to do to get in the side? Piss take of epic proportions how the jock twat keeps getting picked.

  102. Fuckin cunt Rooney.

    Can’t pass.

  103. no fucking commentary either and these streams of piss on the net are doing my head in

  104. Gibson is a utter journeyman in the making

  105. SOPCAST 6816 you tart

  107. Fuckin bastards.

    This is Blackpool.

    Fucking Holloway

  108. I hope Fergie kicks a boot in Gibson’s face so that the cunt bleeds and puts in a transfer request

  109. SAF will sort it at h/t
    someone should show him a pic of holloway lording it – thats incentive enough

  113. What the fuck does Fergie see in Gibson?

  114. i can’t believe the future lies with the likes of gibcunt, fletcher and the like – ffs we are so devoid of any ideas

  115. Fergie won’t do anything until 60 mins – by which time we will be 3 or 4 nil down. Utter cocksuckers.

    He surely can’t look at this midfield and be happy with it. I hope Uncle Malc is watching this. This is what happens when you don’t invest in some decent players.

  116. Fergal is a fucking tosspot for not getting these cunts up for it.

    amount of times rooney has given the ball away

    scholes can’t even see the fucking ball he is so old and out of the game – its too fast for him

    no way can blackpussy do this to us for another 45mins – that was electric

  117. SAF will wait till 70 mins to bring on Sweetpea.

    2-2

    2 points dropped.

  118. if we lose at least go down with a fight not this wimpy, limp wristed, pussy fingering shite served up 1st half

  141. herbie simms says:

    SAF should know Blackpool are the biggest giant-killers in the division and are very dangerous when playing at home. If they lose this one, its Arsenal for the title, because United will not beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. United have so many away games this half, whereas Arsenal play most of their games at home.

  142. What the fuck are this shower of cunts up to ????????

  143. 50 cents is injured – get up you fucking twat

  144. Nani’s balls into the box have been fucking shit

    What a relief. Thank You Berbatov.

  273. To be fair hernandez and giggs changed the game for us. Without then we would have lost. Cal if you think giggs is finished watch the impact he made when he came on. He led by example. Fletcher can fuck off.

    they came at us 100 mph lilke we shld do in every game but they ran out of steam and the technique destroyed them

    Giggs was like a greyhound and Berbs touch and control was exhibition standard.

  278. fletcher was doing what he has been all season – ie fuck all
    gibson is not united quality – keep him to clean the toilets if that
    smalling is still fucking piss scared under pressure
    that said, a win against these fucks which didnt look like happening for 60 mins is just sweet – very sweet

    we were much better without Rooney.

  281. wonder how many ranter cunts will be here next game?????

  282. We also benefited from Blackpool getting tired. They played out of their skins for 60 mins. Fair play to them.

    No idea how we won that game. It was always a potential banana skin the same way Burnley away was for us last season.

    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.

    monumental given what Le Arse and Le Rent boys and Shiteh were expecting. I’m stunned.

    holloway is fucking thick cunt – i said it earlier, the cunt wasn’t closing out the game and playing like a fucking manic wanting to TROUNCE united – it is a tool – funny as fuck but a fucking bumtickler – even the commentators were saying that this twat is not closing down the midfield

    sad reality is that they ran out of fuel and basically after their ass exploded on the pitch – Giggs, Berbs and the BUGGATTI VEYARON that is CHICA – fingered them. end of.

    even Lord Fergal was off the bench like a prissy teengage school girl – the old fucker.

  292. blackpool had 1 shot off target in the whole of the 2nd half
    they could have had a pen though
    hope raf is ok

  293. 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.

  303. Chicarito should start

  304. sweet pea should not start ichiro
    he is awesome as an impact sub – like solskjaer he just reads the game from the bench and is awesome when he comes on
    when he starts he just doesnt have the same knack

  310. herbie simms says:

    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.

  311. uncleknobheadffs uncleknobheadforfucksake says:

    I thought his job today was to be a second left back to counter the massive threat of whoever the journeyman league one shite it is blackpool have on the wing

  312. fuck. that game was amazing. I knew it would be great. Berbs on 5 goals in 2 games! He must really be loving life right now.

  313. Will you idiots come down from cloud 7 and rethink what you saw in the first half…against other better teams, we would have been sent to the garden shed in the second half, ending up losing 4:3

    KEEP UP AT THE BACK CUNTWAD!!

  315. Dinkinflicker says:

    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.

  316. Spike said:
    Will you idiots come down from cloud 7 and rethink what you saw in the first half…against other better teams, we would have been sent to the garden shed in the second half, ending up losing 4:3

    yeah whatever, no team has ever done that to us for years and we never lost 0-4

  317. 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.

  318. herbie simms says:

    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

  321. 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.

  322. 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.

  323. uncleknobheadffs uncleknobheadforfucksake says:

    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

  324. 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.

  325. herbie simms says:

    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.

Speak Your Mind
