    Swindon Town v Blackpool Official Matchday Thread 02.04.21

    I was on the Blackpool Supporters Club bus at Swindon for this night game in April 1970, we stayed in the Swindon Town Supporters Club for an hour after the match and had a post match celebration. Got home after 3am but I still went into work at 7am still buzzing. If Swindon had won that night...

    Spot on, thx and well done. WBA at home was indeed Jimmy Armfield’s 600th appearance for Blackpool and after WBA he played 24 more League games, 2 FA Cup games and 1 League game to make a total of 627 games when he retired.

    Why would Jimmy Armfield have a Guard of Honour in the home game against WBA, it wasn’t the first home game of the season.

    I bought a framed copy of this photo, but lots of discussion still on here about whether the image is photoshopped. The issues raised are mainly about the mountains in the background.

    OLD PICTURES OF BLACKPOOL FC

    One of my best ever week’s as a Blackpool fan was in mid October 1966, we beat Spurs 3-1 at White Hart Lane on the Saturday, Chelsea 3-1 in a League Cup replay at Stamford Bridge on the following Monday and then Newcastle United 6-0 at Bloomfield Road on the following Saturday. Emlyn Hughes...

    OLD PICTURES OF BLACKPOOL FC

    I watched every game Emlyn Hughes played for Blackpool, he was only 19 when Blackpool sold him to Liverpool in Feb 1967 for what was then a British record fee of £65,000 for a teenager. Emlyn quickly built up a reputation at Blackpool as a hard enthusiastic tackler with an incredible will to win...

    Wettest Game you’ve ever watched?

    Blackpool away at Huddersfield in the final game of the 1967/68 season, it poured down all day and throughout the match, there was no cover at Huddersfield’s ground, we were soaked to the skin but we didn’t care. Pool won 3-1 and secured promotion to Div 1, we were all on the pitch celebrating...

    Rate Critchileys first season so far.

    5 out of 10 from me, Critch is still on a steep learning curve, some very good results coupled with lots of disappointing performances but there is no consistency. You can never successfully predict a Critch starting X1, he has his favourites and is the new Tinker Man but his use of substitutes...

    Wettest Game you’ve ever watched?

    Suited Pool in the end as a point at Leicester was very important in helping to secure promotion that season.

    Liverpool v Man City

    The last time Liverpool lost three consecutive League games at home was the 1963/64 season, Blackpool were one of the three teams to beat them, winning 2-1 at Anfield with goals from McPhee & Charnley. Liverpool ended up as Champions that season.

    Sir Stanley Matthews

    Jimmy Armfield already has a statue at Bloomfield Road and deservedly so. We are very lucky that we have several contenders for Blackpool FC’s greatest ever player and they all bring different qualities, contributions and achievements into the debate. Don’t forget that Stanley Matthews missed...
