We have had seven managers plus two X Thompson in place since 2012, nine appointments in under six years is that a football league record?

As of Bowyers walk out/resignation/moment of clarity, I couldn't give a shit.

Give it to anyone.

Taylor-Fletcher Expresses Interest in Blackpool Job
Quote:Former Blackpool favourite Gary Taylor-Fletcher has thrown his hat into the ring for the vacant manager’s job at Bloomfield Road.

The 37-year-old spent seven years at the club as a player, making over 200 appearances at a time when Blackpool enjoyed huge success on the field.

Now retired, he has most recently been in work as assistant manager to Kevin Nicholson at Welsh side Bangor.

The pair led the club to a second placed finish in the Welsh Premier League last season but left in May after the club was demoted after failing to obtain a tier one license.

Following Gary Bowyer’s shock resignation yesterday, Taylor-Fletcher said it would difficult to turn down to Pool job.

“It’s one of them,” he told BBC Radio Lancashire this morning.

“Blackpool Football Club is very close to my heart and I’ve had 18 months of managerial experience of playing in Europe.

“I think a lot of ex-players from our time would be interested in it.

“I think there will be a lot of people you wouldn’t realise will want the job. It’s a massive club.

“Blackpool Football Club were in the Premier League. Of course a lot has changed since then, but you never know what can happen in the future.

“The club was a massive part of my football career and it’s probably the one club I hold closest to my heart.

“If the job was there then it would be very hard to turn down.”

Taylor-Fletcher was also full of praise for Bowyer, who decided to step down from his role after two seasons with the club.

“It’s a big shock,” he added.

“He’s done a magnificent job so to lose him after just one game is a devastating blow for Blackpool.

“Each year he has had to build again. But I think one thing he knew at Blackpool was that he was always going to have these challenges.

“For two seasons solid he’s done unbelievable getting the team playing how they were with all the things going on behind the scenes.

“He’s managed to keep all that low profile as if it isn’t affecting him.”

Stay well away GTF. Please don't taint your legacy as Pool legend.

I would imagine GTF fits into the category of those 'needing' a job to support his family. He says some nice things about us being a big club and there is no doubt he loves it. He is probably thinking in normal circumstances, he wouldn't have a chance of getting a job in the football. Having said that, I really hope he stays away.

I do think he would be a good manager and hope he gets a job. He'd probably have to start non-league but like you say he may see this as an opportunity to get straight into league football. Just hope he considers the negatives very carefully.

Holloway has ruled himself out which is no surprise. Love his honest answer 'I'm still getting paid by QPR'.

Richie Wellens has apparently expressed an interest.

There will be dozens of applicants from those who need work, or believe they can turn things around, despite events over the past few years
Believe it or not, Blackpool is still considered a major gig.
Got this from a mate who's worked for several football league managers.
However, one of said managers, with whom I recently chatted, told me there is a similar number of experienced, credible managers who wouldn't touch us with a barge pole.

Must be a bad gig if your mates would rather stay where they are than work for Owen

Yeah, he said it with a wry smile
There are some savvy managers who wouldn't take the plunge, even though their own circumstances aren't stable

RE: Who is daft enough to work with Oyston at Blackpool
Personally I don't think it really matters who is appointed the next manager, to be honest we may as well have a weekly guest manager like the TV show Have I Got News For You.

Now Bowyer has gone I can only see relegation for us, Bowyer is an outstanding coach and manager who is the only reason we got promoted and maintained our League One status last season. As far as I am aware Bowyer hasn't yet announced why he quit, but it doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure it out: No training ground; having to pay for temporary training accommodation out of his own pocket; losing the majority of the spine of his team; Curtis Tilt being messed around when in all honesty the lad should be allowed to go; missing out on targets other than those who are free agents. The poor chap had no alternative.

I suspect the only reason we didn't sell Curtis Tilt is because the world is watching OO and even he daren't sell the player and pocket the cash - which let's face it would probably have happened.

Whist I am on my soap box how is it possible that OO is still at the helm of BFC when the High Court has threatened to freeze his assets and sell them off? This guy is like Boris the Bullet dodger.
