Absolute Bull Made Up Blackpool FC Facts - Qblock87 - 05-06-2014 20:07

On 23/07/95 Alan Shearer was just about to put pen to paper on a 5 year deal at Bloomfield Road when Big Sam scuppered the deal and opted for Andy Preece instead.

In the same season,whilst on loan at the club, big Neville Southall had to have his goalkeepers shirt specially made by Jacamo. He still owes Owen Oyston the money for this to this day apparently.

In 1928 four bonfires were lit in the corners of Bloomfield Road at night game versus Bury therfore being the first ever night game at Bloomers.

Upon his death in 1968 Bert Gristlethwaite had been the kit man at Blackpool Fc for 64 years. A record still held in any league to this day.

The remains of 2 German wartime bombers are burried under the hallowed turf of Bloomfield Road. Shot down in 1943 from the top of Blackpool Tower by Gunner Fred Dobbs of Condor Grove aged just 17 at the time.

Anyone else know any bullshit facts about The Mighty?

During the 1982/83 season Blackpool FC fielded what they thought was a registered player named John Butler,only to find out that Karl Oyston had refused to pay postage for his registration forms to be delivered to Football League HQ in St.Annes.
Due to Mr.Oystons notorious spend thrift ways the club were deducted two points,and forced to apply for re-election,upon finding out HIS mistake had cost his Football Club,what could have been their Football League status,Mr.Oyston defended his actions and reaffirmed that he would do the same again,due to the high cost of envelopes & first class stamps.

During a game against Notts County in 1976 a streaker bearing a striking resemblence to our very own RammyBoy caused a delay of 2 hours while the Police decided if he was a male or female. Pool lost 3-1 and were consequently relegated. The streaker was fined two shillings

During the late 60's and the early 70's HRH The Queen was a regular visitor to Bloomfield Road until an altercation with fans of visiting local rivals Preston North End on the pitch. Her Majesty is still to this day serving her ban imposed by Blackpool Magistrates for affray and that is why you never see her at Bloomers anymore.

Due to Pilot error in 1973 Blackpool Fc landed at the wrong Airport in Italy for an Anglo Italian Cup Match away to Roma and had to cycle and run 175 miles to make the kick off on time. Amazingly Blackpool won 4-1 but missed out on their duty frees!

Because of its close proximity to the sea Bloomfield Road has twice been engulfed by the sea. Lastly in 1981 when the roof to the old spion kop was lost to the Irish Sea forever.

Blackpool FC have contested the Champions League final a total of 9 times, more than any other club, however they've lost out on each of those occasions 147-0 to Alex Higgins.

Some say their Chairman, Karl Oyston, is the stig, some say he definitely isn't.

12 players in total have played for Blackpool FC over the years and been paid, at the same time.

Blackpool were promoted to the premier league at the end of the 2009/10 season, despite being pre-season favourites for the drop and having the smallest budget in the division.

On December 11th 1958 due to financial woes Blackpool players were paid in sticks of Blackpool rock. Two of these sticks owned by the late great Stanley Mathews were recently sold at Auction in Paris for the princely sum of 2 million Euro's!
