Home or Away
For many of our fans they have never witnessed BFC as a normal club so the question I am going to pose is somewhat unfair.
Do you prefer the atmosphere of a match day at Bloomfield road (assuming you can remember such an occasion) or an away ground, a day match or a night match,
Now I appreciate some do not travel for various reasons but at some time an away match must have been attended, for my part I there is nothing quite like hearing the thousands of like minded fans singing and chanting at a home match, now that was some years ago for me, but likewise at an away event often Blackpool fans have been louder than the home fans.
I must stress that these thoughts were from a little while ago, as not many fans could possibly think about an atmosphere, let alone singing and chanting at this moment of time, so think back to when we were a little more normal if that is possible.
I always enjoyed the challenge of an away ground, I don't mean the agro, it was like visiting a foreign country, different place to stand or sit, different surroundings and being part of a small group in a often hostile environment and a win well an away win was the best part.
Take Preston for example, beating them any time home or away was great but beating them at their place and especially at a night game was really something special.

Couldn't beat a rocking Bloomfield Road even back in the Grayson days in League One. Seeing the ground full in the Championship and Premier League will never be beaten more so because it's something that most of us have never witnessed before and probably never will!

Having said that, 5,500 away fans at Preston is difficult to beat.

One of my favourite away game memories was Swansea away when we beat them 6-3 (just checked it was 5th May 2007) - that was a great day out

even the Swans fans we bumped into afterward were a good laugh about the result

might have helped I was a more than a bit pissed too

Always appreciated a home game in the evening. Something special about your ground under floodlights, surrounding by like minded people also freezing their bollocks off to cheer on the team.

I remember one Tuesday night, freezing cold, stadium with two sides, playing in the LDV. Can't remember which team it was but I seem to remember they were a league lower and it took extra time and pens to beat them. We were losing most of the 90 mins. I think it was southern who equalised late on. Magical.
