I feel bad for your keyboard.

And yes, I'm assuming that wasn't written using a phone.

Preston's gates are only swelled by large away followings. If Preston are playing someone like Brentford, the stadium is less than half empty. That's nothing to inspire to in wanting a bigger capacity.

16,000 will only be full if we reach the Premier League again and that probably won't happen again in our lifetime so no point in worrying about it.

First and foremost, we need a football club to support. Stadium capacity is least thing we should be worried about. We aren't either going to solve the issues Blackpool has a town. That's for politicians. All we care about is being able to go to Bloomfield Road again.

Vineyards and gale force winds off the Irish sea, a great combination.

RE: Fan launches bid to buy Blackpool FC
On my phone.

I'm a she.

Wine making .... Summer

Nothing at all to do with gale force winds.

Lancashire will become the new Bordeaux eventually.

Small minded mentality.

The soil all around Blackpool is absolutely perfect.

You never know the first wine entrepreneur could eventually own Blackpool....

The earth's tilt, position in the solar system and with the sun now entering the next stage of its life cycle, Lancashire is going to have perfect summers for wine making.

Have a look at the cost of a decent bottle of English wine.

Now moving on to the club

If that's how you all feel .... I must be part of a different generation... One that believes that you have to actually attempt to be better than you are and actually have a go at things in life.

I'm not calling any of you out, yes you need a club to get behind, oystens out etc etc
Look beyond this time period

We are responsible for what we leave behind for future generations

The Bloomfield bowl and a lost generation....

It's nothing at all to do with the bs global warming rhetoric

The ribble valley and Fylde have always been earmarked for wine making eventually, there are past articles on it.
Eventually the conditions were going to be just right

It's just a pity Blackpool the town that could.... Hasn't yet got to the point were in its reputation for being an amazing place and world leader would be able to back up an enterprise.

It wouldn't even be costly to get started

Just a decent plot of land....

Brewing facilities

Then the right people and the right team

I've paid over £30 for a bottle of English wine

Well worth it

See... The difference is....

Some of us can see passed the clouds and hope and dream for more

For people to be better....

At least the Tories are trying to get people to aspire to do more, maybe some of these forgotten towns can take advantage of the extra help for businesses that's available to get started.

On the Preston topic over 1300 are off to Millwall

Don't try to put a spin on things to out a local club down.

They have seen an increase of home fans. Check away followings

Also. Good away following coming to your ground means that you are a decent team to go away to

Preston fans do honestly feel for you, I know first hand
They can't help, this is going to take time...

I really hope that the 125 mil plus can be recovered and some one with vision uses that money to secure the future of the club both on and off the field

Deep down you all know what your town, club, fan base could be...

The town has a decent population, once they're gone it's time to get your neighbors, your neighbors kids to the ground... It's not just up to the club...

It's about community and talking to people again.

Sorry for my optimism.

I'm pretty sure you would want a visionary running your club rather than count duckula and Scrooge McDuck ?

It's not just upto politicians... They're employed by you! The town belongs to the people

Blackpool FC as the world's favourite second team, the rocky Balboa of football, the place to entertain crowds of visitors to the town who are on business, casinos, seeing shows.

Blackpool is undergoing redevelopment, and planning for the future, the over reaching at first thought was Vegas of Britain seemed far fetched at first to some but with the right development and project planning this could still happen in some shape way or form.

Minus the oystons involvement.

Visit Blackpool for a missing weekend and come and visit Blackpool football club.

It's not as far fetched as it sounds, let's jump through Cern and explore a different universe wherein Blackpool FC survived in the championship and the money from the premier league was reinvested appropriately into the facilities and the squad.....

On average fan attendance among local clubs has risen across the UK, even those teams in the lower divisions are seeing larger crowds. Footballers in the premier league youth teams getting tired of waiting for their chance and taking control of their future improving lower league standard, Ledson for one at Oxford.
Oxford have just signed close to signing a Liverpool player for 200,000 an outstanding midfielder Cameron brannigan.

What would Blackpool FC be drawing in attendance realistically now... Either in the lower end of the prem, mid table in the prem or top half of the championship?

20,000?

Looking at local rivals who have been in or around the championship at premier league we are seeing 16,000 + average attendance ... Some far cry from the 30,000 however there are two noteworthy things to point out

The investor talks of the long term plan at
Blackpool, who knows actually building that fourth stand with safe standing might help

The town revisiting it's last Vegas esque model whilst maintaining its family friendly face.

A cult following takes time to grow, stories of success need the seeds to grow, when you look at Blackpool FC and all that happened might some one also take a look at Blackpool councils planning for the future at the same time? Did the town continue to fight for its vision of the future?
This would have attracted investors, visitors and a re invigoration of the town.

Are there any schools in Blackpool, private, academies, public that specialise in sport mainly football? Schools that could feed into a Blackpool youth team?
A school that could draw from all around the country ... The best of the best? All's it takes is to build one.
There are so many soccer academies out here, from the very tender age of 3-5 right through to schools offering it as a big part of its curriculum. NFL is on its way down and soccer is growing, so is the standard and along with that the MLS is growing with expansion teams.

So thinking about that 30,000 it's more than achievable.

Consolidate and rebuild, get the fans back through the door and get behind the town and any plans for the future. There is an airport there... One that can be expanded to take larger aircraft and a really good infrastructure to build upon.

Once the cloud is lifted... Then stock can be taken in where the club is at

Zamo, is that you?

Well you’re always mincing about on here. I’m just glad you’ve branded yourself for all to see “NOBBER”.

Keeps us separate for clarity.

I think Ashleigh makes some good points.

All we have to do is:

Build an international airport
Build a new school that attracts the “best of the best” from around the country. “All’s it takes is to build one”.
Renovate over 2000 hotels
Build Dubai style hotels on man made islands. Failing that...
Build the longest, biggest pier in the World
Build a town like Las Vegas
Start producing wine and match Bordeaux in terms of output
Reduce the price of food in the Pleasure Beach (this one is probably unworkable)

The problem with you lot is that you just don’t have the vision.
