This is the sight most Blackpool fans have been treasuring for the last week. There we are in a Champions League spot after four games. Sitting pretty. Riding high. But are we as fans making too much of this? Are expectations being raised a little … Continue reading Carried Away?
On Tuesday morning, Simon Grayson, via a hand delivered letter, offered his resignation to the club which was immediately rejected by the board of directors. Less than an hour after the club had received Simon’s offer of resignation, the Leeds Chief Executive once again contacted chairman Karl Oyston and reaffirmed their derisory offer. The chairman once again informed Leeds that permission was not granted to speak to the manager.
At 12.15pm, the club were notified that Leeds United “had been made aware” that Simon Grayson had resigned from the club’s employment and that he had accepted their offer of employment as manager and that he had signed a contract with Leeds United.
In light of the above, the board of directors have reluctantly reported Leeds United to the Football League for breaches of Football League regulations 20.1 and 20.2.

Unlike last week at the DW Stadium, yesterday was a more realistic welcome to what we can expect from life in the Premier League. We were soundly beaten, and in the end were lucky to keep the scoreline down to six. That’s how emphatically better Arsenal were than us. The sheer pace the Gunners break forward at is frightening and as a football purist, it was hard not to admire, however painful it is to see your team go down 6-0.
Today saw the following press release: “Blackpool FC can confirm Karl Oyston has stood down as Chairman and Director of the Football Club with immediate effect. The 43-year-old will remain at Bloomfield Road as acting Chief Executive until the end of the season, or in … Continue reading Oyston Out!
…well, until Chelsea played. Yesterday was like a dream. As bad as Wigan were – and they were abject – it was destined to be Blackpool’s day. To be top of the league for just three hours was more than I could ever have hoped … Continue reading We are top of the league…
