Game on! Blackpool v Newcastle.

Stop this man. Stop Blackpool.
It’s ‘Game On’ again as Newcastle take on Blackpool at their humble Bloomfield Road ground.

Sentiment should pretty low on the agenda as the media darlings of the moment struggle to stave off relegation. No end of tired cliche sayings have been trotted out this season. ‘Living the dream’ and ‘little old Blackpool’ are a couple that immediately spring to mind. Newcastle must rise above that this afternoon however and should be focussed on shattering the tangerine dream a little bit more in this 3pm kick-off.

Not a lot has changed with with regard to team news since I wrote the match preview yesterday, and you can see the proper team news at the very bottom of this article as and when it becomes available.

The match will not be broadcast live here in the UK, but a fair few overseas channels seem to be broadcasting it so I live in hope for a decent and reliable stream. Once again, if you stumble across one then don’t be shy and share it with the rest of us. We’re all in it together remember.

The away end is sold out as all 2,100 tickets got snapped up by Toon fans eager to make the most of the Easter break, although I’d guess that there will be quite a few more in and around Blackpool enjoying the game and the atmosphere around the town. Hopefully the lads can pull out a result to make the trip just that bit better.

So that’s about it really, and it really is Game On!

    In other words you were Johnny Mumbles and bottled it?


  3. I thought Wrighty wouldn’t shut up like. His interview technique is crap. He asked about 4 questions in one go, then answers them himself.


  4. Wright is a ****. He is too busy polishing his own ego and bigging up things to be a good media personality, he was crap on that channel 5 show that lasted about 2 months aswell. 😉


  5. Dave – Dunno. I’m gonna see if I can get some recordings of it. Only about 30 seconds worth anyway so you didn’t miss much. Nice plug for the blog though 😀
