I watched the WWE hall of fame last night and i know Blackpool have a few names in one Glyn James etc

What about each year maybe Summer time the Club could induct 4/5 Legends into a Hall of Fame, could make it a special Dinner night it would honour legends and help bring in an extra few pound for the Club

Not an end of Season maybe like mid Summer would be an excuse too for people to go to the ground and have a night to look forward to

This is a great book, someone bought it for me for a birthday once upon a time - it tells you about all the players who were inducted into our hall of fame

Has the Hall of Fame been updated since the 90s players? Be interesting to update the 00s, and possibly the 10s if it isn't too soon

Not a proper one each year with an event to mark it which the club could benefit from

It is a proper Hall of Fame to be fair, officially done by the club.

But your idea is decent of having an event. We're overdue inducting the 00s players, and even in a couple years could do the 10s.

We'd have to stick to 5 per decade going off the already existing HoF, so It could be in the format of:
- Once a decade, inducting 5 players from the previous one.
- One player every 2 years from the previous decade, having a night solely dedicated to them (then maybe a big night with all 5 so we get the reunion once they're all inducted)

I like the sound of that!

Inducting 5 players a year wouldn't make it a very exclusive hall of fame.
Its something nowadays that's hijacked by the opportunity to make money.I was so disappointed that Leeds didnt do anything like this for the Centenary and just ending up with dinners and appearances that in the main were all about revenue.

The Blackpool Hall of Fame and brill and was streets ahead of what other clubs do, and its just a shame it didnt get more national credit.

I don’t think it would matter what decades as such

would be a good night out, honouring legends & making a few pound for the club
