I’ll just say ...1973/4 

Ten in a row.

 

A couple of 6-0’s in that run I think

My dad propped me up in the stanchions at the back of the stand so I could see.

Blackpool were shocking half way through that season but they started the role with a good away win at Huddersfield Town, then the rest was history.

 

Great win yesterday, Scholes in tomorrow,  get on a run with a couple more of loanees and playing the right players in positions, I honestly fancy our chances.

 

The fans ( especially away from home) are like being a goal up, we have the best supporters.

 

I thought this Blackpool myth had be dispelled years ago. 

 

They were awful for the the first 10 games, where they got one win. But they started turning it around October, about the same time we did.

 

At this point in the season they were 4th, with 12 more points than we currently do and were looking unstoppable.

Here they are during the same season, sitting in 3 points off the playoffs at the start of December, in much better shape than we currently are.

So, when it gets to this point of the season and people say “Will we do a Blackpool?”

 

The answer is no, because doing a Blackpool doesn’t exist, or at least not in the way Latics fans use it to convince themselves their a still a chance we’ll finish in the playoffs when we’re 10 points adrift in mid Feb.

After yesterday my minds changed that we will be in playoffs and enter them as the form team.

We've got 2 games in hand to some teams in the play offs. Win them and we're 4 points off them

only one team in play off positions that we have two games in hand of.

We are currently 7-2 on sky bet for a top 7 finish. Anyone brave enough?

Pretty poor odds tbh

We need a maximum return off these  3 home games then we can start to think of the playoffs but 10 wins on the bounce  I can’t see it

And an 11 year old me. Alan Groves kicked a ball against the hoarding, he missed and accidentally hit a kid in the face.

Still got 5 of the top 7 to play, all of those games barring Mansfield are away from home. It will be very tough.

Still think it's too far away but if we can finish the season as strong as possible I would expect us to secure automatics next season fairly easily.

I remember the Bristol match well. A swift five pints of draft Double Diamond in the main stand bar before the game. A good win then home on the coach

to watch it on MOTD.

That being said, I'm struggling to think of a game where we were comprehensively outplayed. Even Carlisle were bobbins and they managed to stick 6 past us. Maybe Mansfield where we got away with a 0-0... we've shown that we can play against the best in the division. We slaughtered Bury for 45 mins at ours, looked decent value for a draw against Lincoln where we could have arguably won...

This division is woeful and everytime I think of Bunn's tenure the more depressed I get. Turning up to places battling for draws, bringing on a CB at Morecambe at HT to sure it up. The 0-0 at Notts County... I could go on. I'd rather he went after we beat Cheltenham in October.

Win the next 3, comfortably and turn up to Bury with plenty in the away and home end and go on to beat them then I will start to dream.

If we went into the Play-Offs in form playing a side like bloody Forest Green i'd expect us to walk it.

We've got five I think; that's plenty isn't it?

 

True but that includes Ivo who is with us for the whole season so feels like our player and the 2 new lads who are coming in to fix our problem (hopefully) up front

 

With AL and his Brother in charge though I accept that anything could happen

All getting giddy and it's great to have a feel good factor again but unlike the record

 

We all get up and then get knocked down again. Hopefully we can smile a bit longer this time
