Think this one will be tougher than envisaged. Going for same as reverse fixture with a hard fought 2-1 win. Great that we will be backed by 3000+ fans. Would be brilliant if we can make a bit of a statement to everybody else before they play today.
Huddersfield picked up another 3 points last night so we need to start converting these games in hand ( and I know this isn't strictly one of those games) into points on the board now. Grabbing the points now will reduce the tension on the Fulham/ bournemouth games and hopefully their fate will be sealed by that time anyway.
Fantastic first half and to be fair decent second half too. To be fair to Blackpool they had chances and alot of shots charged down as well. Great to have Davies, Surridge and Grabban available as they all bring a different quality to the team. I think out of the next 4 games we have 3 at home so in a great position.
Cannot believe the turn around since Houghton got sacked. When the season started my only hope was that we would finish ahead of those Sheep Shagging cunts, but it is so refreshing to see us genuinely in contention for the playoffs.
The way I see it,it's completely in our hands, barring a lamouchi like implosion in the last 6 games or so I think we look good for a play off spot, cooper will not let something like that happen and I just don't think it can happen anyway as we are a good team playing good football with confidence. This is totally different than under lamouchi, under him we had a decent performance here and there we showed up to some good games and got the win but more so had games where we scraped a win or draw. Under cooper we are dominating teams and sweeping then aside. This squad is a better than lamouchis and more importantly he has got them playing together brilliantly. No more Lewis grabban trying to take 7 players on for a chance for himself, we are a well drilled team and if I was another team in the play offs I wouldn't want to face us.
Only favour we could ask for is to push Boro out of a top 6, place. If we had to play Boro without Spence it would weaken us but I still don't think by enough to be like ' we are Gona struggle now' but if anyone deserves to play at Wembley this season it's that boy and it would be a tremendous shame for him and us if he couldn't.
Choice of Davis, surridge and grabs now up top... That is potent, would not surprise me one bit of grabs came on in the final and fired us into the prem, this season deserves that kind of ending.
