After yesterday’s blog I can report that the 22 May 2011 did not turn out as we would have liked and not only did Blackpool F. C. lose away to Manchester United F. C., they were also relegated. Big, big, big, pants. I know it is only football but I know quite a few people,, my husband included who have followed them for many years, supporting them through think and thin. Watching them when everyone else mocked. When they were in the very bottom of the professional football leagues (then Division 4), and in 10 short years they worked their way up, to the Premiership and not by buying success like so many others teams of recent times but with hard work,, clever tactics and sheer grit. It was a fairy tale and I just want to say well done to the Manager and his Team for giving it their best and providing entertaining football. After all, isn’t that what football is all about, entertaining?
Here’s a picture of London Bridge at Portsea Back Beach in Victoria, not that it is remotely related to this post, but because every post is all the better for a photograph.
