Blackpool Relegated

Posted on: May 23rd, 2011 | by Flaviu | 1 Comment

Blackpool fans were left devastated following their relegation from the Barclays Premiership on Sunday.

Just before the hour mark, they saw their side go into a 2-1 lead at Old Trafford, before being dominated in the latter stages by the champions, Manchester United who secured a 4-2 win.

Dimitar Berbatov created the opportunity for Park Ji-sung to put United in front after 21 minutes, but Blackpool’s Charlie Adam finely executed a free-kick five minutes before halftime.

It was the Seasiders’s who stunned the Old Trafford faithful when Gary Taylor-Fletcher put Blackpool into the lead on the 57th minute. This was short lived when 5 minutes later; Anderson found some space to make things all square. Blackpool’s, Ian Evatt deflected a third into his own net and Michael Owen compounded Blackpool’s misery with a trademark finish on the 81st minute.

The majority of Football fans will be sad to see Blackpool relegated as they have acquitted themselves superbly and given fans across the nation great entertainment through out their campaign.

PENDLE VERDICT – Sad to see  Blackpool go down and think they deserve to be in the Europa League via the fair play award.

YOUR VERDICT – What do you think?

    I heard that Manchester United could have been find by the premier league if they had put out a weakened side to face Blackpool on Sunday. How can this be?? Surely Sir Alex Ferguson can do what ever he likes! I am not surprised that Ian Holloway wasn’t pleased. The managers have to pick a 25 man squad at the start of the year and they should be able to pick who ever they want!!! Ye sad to see blackpool go down, but I like to see teams in the Europa League by merit.
