Armfield Club Wall

Ooh Andy Garner!

Does anyone know if there are any plans to renovate the side wall of the Armfield club? Whilst waiting outside the club shop on Tuesday to purchase season tickets I was looking down Bloomfield road toward the Armfield club and saw the large blank wall at the side of the club. I thought that it would be fantastic place to see some BFC graffiti/wall paintings. There a few pieces of wall graffiti in Blackpool and thought it would be great to commission an artist to do something on that wall BFC related.

Mentioned this on a YouTube chat on a video they did when it launched or whenever it was, one of the owners Andy is it, said sounds a good idea.

But it would look fantastic a graffiti wall maybe get someone like seca one to do it.

Could have the tower on it, lots of tangerine and the stadium etc...

Great article. I did not knew that a lot of the wall art around Blackpool had been done by him. Great story and ideal candidate for the job.

Such a good idea. These touches folks are thinking about... how to make Bloomfield road/ the whole club OUR home again makes me proud and realise what we have.

I'll chip in a few if somethings decided upon.

One of the best sights in Naples is seeing Maradonna's mural on the wall. I'm not saying we have a demi god ourselves here as a player but it would certainly look good with something BFC related and would be the perfect spot to be seen from the ground. Surely we have some iconic moments that we could maybe pay to vote on to try to raise some dosh for it.

Our niece would be great to do this....Google SKLO...aka Samantha Lo.( seasideone might help with this)

..unfortunately

a) it might prove expensive to fly her over

and b) right now she probably won’t be allowed in without having to quarantine..and more expense

but I tell you she would do a fantastic job and she proudly wore the famous eagle BFC teeshirt many years ago( and by the way I still have mine😉😈)and she remembers it..maybe gave her the inspiration.

I would love to show you her work but for whatever reason( maybe my age) I can’t seem to post a link...I did try☹️including the photo of the three of us(the better half being no.3 ) with that T Shirt( well me and Sam had one each😉)

Armfield, Matthews, Mortensen maybe more, could javebthem all stood like that tower behind them etc.
could have all the greats or simply an image of the ground in bygone times but it is the Armfield Club that we are talking about.

im not bothered really just like the idea of a giant mural there with BFC subject matter

Our history is good but we need to move on to the players/manager creating new history, maybe even an appearance for Simon Sadler

A subtle Simon Sadler tucked away somewhere within in it.
Not just for being our Messiah but a shot at the main stains as they would never have the respect SS has within 5 minutes of being here

Modern greats too.

We could do a mural of all of the players who have held a trophy aloft.

FA Cup, Ballon D'Or, World Cup, Anglo-Italian, LDV, Play-offs.

That should cover it quite well.

Great idea, you could keep it exclusive to Blackpool if we wanted with all the captains lifting their respective trophies.

We have:
FA Cup
Anglo-Italian Cup
FA Trophy x2
Play-offs x6

Maybe do some sort of vote for best players from each decade have a mural/timeline type theme. With some mangers on there as well

I'd quite like to be able to put Matthews with the Ballon D'Or and Alan Ball with the World Cup

I think it would be a real shame not to celebrate that bit of our heritage.

There's that list of teams and the number of Ballon D'Or winners and I love it when I see Blackpool in it.

And there's only about 12 clubs in England that contributed to a World Cup Winning squad, and we are one of them.

Great idea and the fact its near the ground means away fans might see, anything that shows off our illustrious history is fine by me!

Infected by Design Blackpool would do a job on that I reckon having done many murals in and around the town.
