RE: Absolute Bull Made Up Blackpool FC Facts
For the 1968/69 season Blackpool ditched their famous tangerine shirts for a green and banana yellow striped number. This was ditched however after just 3 games after a strongly worded letter from Mr.Jack Grimsdale of Bute Avenue,North Shore.

During a game against Darlington on 13/03/76 the referee abandoned the match on the stroke of half time when a swarm of bees attacked one of the linesmen injuring his left testacle.

After 34 consecutive defeats in the 1922/23 season Blackpool refused to sack manager Fred Flump instead shooting him and hiding his body under the old West Stand. His remains were only discovered in 2002 when the old stand was demolished.

In 1934 Blackpool changed their name to Blackpool City but in 1936 had to change it back when amazingly officials of the Club realised Blackpool wasn't a City after all. Club spokesman Bill Payer said with a red face"Blackpool is a Town"

Blackpool goalkeeper Len Pratt became the first English keeper to keep 30 clean sheets in a season in 1961/62. An amazing feat considering he only had one arm,was blind in his left eye and was deaf. He also had flat feet and spoke with a lisp. An epileptic with chronic arthritis and a heart condition.

In 2014 a bath chair of Pool fans went to Bolton twice, Rovers and Burnley.
But Riga might change things.
I only post these sort of comments on here to get response. On Avftt I get that cunt westy having a go, and he gets dogs from the main posters.
They realised that this mummy's placenta is a joker, tries it on with people, who he wouldn't dare stand toe to toe with.
No rant, just pissed off with message board wannabes .

In January 1917,a fire in the west stand, could have been caused by the heating in the dressing room, badly damaged the only structure of note. The entire southern end was completely destroyed along with club records, silver cups and a collection of historical photos because of a northerly wind.
(actually true, can't beat Q's offerings!)

After the team bus broke down en route to Aldershot for a night game in 1986 Blackpool had to field a team made up of supporters who had made the trip. Amazingly Blackpool won 2-1 with Graham Berry smashing home the winner from a pin point cross from Dave Beattie in front of a crowd of 1,895

During a pre season tour of Scotland in 1988 eight Blackpool players were sent home in shame for donning kilts and running down Greenock high Street with no underwear on flashing their bits to all and sundry. It was the first display of trophies in Scotland in 20 years!

I think he was if memory serves. His flowing grey hair getting in his eyes on numerous occasions but still playing a blinder.

Dave Bamber was the most superstitious player ever to don the famous tangerine shirt. His pre match routine involved strange routines such as shaving his left testacle only,applying marmite inbetween his toes and eating two salted jellied eels. He only put his boots on 30 seconds before kick-off and drank 4 pints of Guiness at half-time.

Sir Harry Thomson used to always turn up sober for the match. He never stopped off in the George on his way to the ground

In the 1993-94 season, when yellow & red cards carried a points total, Gary Briggs not only surpassed his teams league points total but surpassed runaway champions Reading's total too........ Despite only playing a handful of games that season!
