Blackpool 1 – Sheffield United 2 : REACTION

It’s Friday 30th December 2022, and in this final pod of the year, we discuss the future of Michael Appelton and our potential for Championship survival as ‘Pool as we narrowly lost to Sheffield United in front of the Sky Cameras at Bloomfield Road last night.


  1. Two one all draws away at Cardiff and Hull since last pod
  2. The winless run stretched to eight games after today, although unbeaten in three
  3. Three points out of a possible twenty-four thus far


  1. Good first ten – Couple of good half chances, Poveda hits the bar on six minutes and a positive start to the game.
  2. Shite second ten – Sheff United then on top and Sandje Berge all the time in the world to pick his spot after good work form Ndiaye.Carey at fault for not getting across his man?
  3. Switch – Beesley and Yates switched from left to right on around 30 minutes.What was MA trying to achieve?Bogle getting in the down the right all the time maybe having something to do with it?
  4. Sloppy – in possession and giving the ball away easily on numerous occasions.Thompson is particularly poor in his distribution, Madine gets frustrated with his service over his head all the time
  5. Tommo’s Christmas present – McAtee runs length off pitch after Carey slips, unchallenged to pass the ball home.Thompson not coming across to meet the man was criminal
  6. Back in it – Big Gaz brilliantly headed a corner back across the box, Spud couldn’t miss.Did we look more dangerous going direct?
  7. Second half improvement – was a better performance and maybe deserved a point but had Sheff U taken their foot off the gas?


  1. Clappleton not going over to away fans-gate.Damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t?
  2. Sunderland at home next on NYD
  3. Appleton back or sack?
