When we were crap
What do you miss about all things Blackpool FC from the 80's and 90's if anything. For me I miss the old South Stand,King Billy running over the pitch before kick-off and at half-time,fist clenched,geeing up the fans. I miss the away games where you knew 90% of the travelling fans even if it was just a nod and a wink. I miss the crappy little club shop behind the South that never had anything worth buying. I even miss the fact we expected to lose most games when we were away and any draw or win was therefore celebrated like there was no tomorrow. What do you miss?

The way the pitch was raised at the touch lines, tricky trevor used to use it to his advantage going past players.

It was because of the sea air, they kept rusting.
