FUNNY who you bump into at bus stops… heading home from Kensington High Street this evening, a coach pulls up and who pops out: Everybody’s footballing heroes for the day, the Blackpool team.
Straight from Wembley where they beat Cardiff to win a place in the Premiership for the first time, there they were medals and trophy to boot. It’s going to be quite a party down in that there London tonight and who can blame them. No true football romantic cannot have smiled when they saw today that Blackpool, Blackpool, are in the top league. Whether they get smashed out of the league in one season, so be it. But you can’t take away the fact that today they wrote a sports story more uplifting than anything produced by the top teams this season.
