Blackpool v Wigan – A Little Previous

Author: No Comments Share:

Because of a trip to Wales, and a weekend on the Fylde coast, Bernard won’t be putting together his usual “A Little Previous” this week, but as “our season starts here” and we’re all off to the seaside, it seems a little off if we didn’t mark the occassion.  So in an attempt to make amends, and airbrush the last two games against the clementines out of history, the following is taken from the Ye Olde Tree and Crown preview (as written by Mr Ramsdale) for last season’s Carling Cup tie at Bloomfield road.  For that reason, there are a couple of omissions, but enjoy all the same…
