Cant say Im totally sorry but he is a hugh loss to the club. If he could have stayed with a young manager like Brabin that would have been a dream team.

Oh god I dont know what to think but i have a certain forboding about what players we will have next season.

I've had enough!! Harry Potter seems determined to return us to the lower reaches. TP worked wonders for us, and should have been given the keys to Blackpool... Now we have lost him and have a short-list of failures to take over... perhaps someone can tell me his reasoning behind this one... I think I'll watch an ambitious club next season... Morecambe here I come!!

Potter you're a no mark!!

AFC Fylde anyone? We could all go instead of supporting Pool and help their climb into the league. We'd get a stadium and get to laugh at Potter with 10 people (mainly Blackpool councillors) watching the game. Plus, it'd be far cheaper AND we'd get ambition!! Anyone??

TwoStandsForever yes i am a spurs supporter i will amit that but i am a more of a big supporter of Blackpool i have supporter the seasiders for 21 years i've only supporter spurs for 18 years since 91.

One i started watching the pool since i was eight and seen miles more games for pool then spurs and this season i became a season ticket for the first time for Blackpool seeing i was a member for spurs for two seasons before this one but coulden't afford both a season ticket for pool and a membership for spurs and the spurs home games is alot more expensive then pool is as well as going to watch Blackpool and Spurs at home and away just cannot do it anymore i am more loyal being a pool supporter. The only games i've been to see Spurs this season is Bolton away and Man Utd at Wembley the rest has been Blackpool home and away at least i am not the only person who supports both pool and spurs i know i few people who support both and i am not a glory supporter like Man Utd fans and Liverpool,Chelsea Man City.

Wolves fan in peace.

Just as an outsider looking in, and i don't know the situation with Oyston as he doesn't seem to have much support; but from what I can tell Parkes has left due to personal reasons, not been pushed.

I just want to say after enduring one of the coldest nights on earth at Bloomfield road this season, I thought your support for Parkes, following the Grayson debacle, was absolutley outstanding and you were by far my favourite fans of the season.

Sorry if am a bit ignorant to the situation at your club but I hope you get a good replacement in, and was glad to see you well out of trouble this year.

p.s. I hope Rob Edwards is serving you well, never really got a chance with injuries for us.

Thank-you spez, it was a bit chilly wasn't it, you could see the permafrost forming on the ref's nose in the 2nd half!!
<laugh>

There are far too many here who just want to have a go at Oyster, it is well documanted that Tony's wife is very ill, his daughters wedding was brought forward a few weeks ago to a match day which Tony took off, so it could happen while his wife was still here.
The rumours etc start because Oyster is no good at communicating and Steve Canavan has nothing else to do for two months now. However, perhaps he was trying to change Tony's mind or asking him to give it a few days to reconsider - a normal practice for an employer in my book.
Thanks for the support anyway, and good luck up there in the Premierheaven, can see you doing a Stoke.

And the award for the most shocking, vitriolic and ridiculous thread of the year goes to...

You call City fans, supporters of a team who have won nowt since 1976, glory hunters? Why did you start supporting Spurs in their FA cup winning season of 1991?

Twostands
Sorry but I simply don't trust Oyston as much as you do!
Personally, I don't believe one word he utters.
It's all like politician speak.
Why was Parkes - only last week - in negotiations to get the management job he so clearly wanted? Now he wants to look after his sick wife. It doesn't add up.

Hypothetically, I reckon this happened:

Parkes and Oyston enter discussions to make Parkes the manager.
Parkes is offered derisory terms, only one year and no assurances money would be forthcoming for next season. Parkes probably told him where to stick his 'offer' and said "I'd rather be at home looking after my wife than accept those terms" and walks out. Oyston waits a few days to see if the pensioner changes his mind. He doesn't get back to him, so he starts looking around to see who is available at the least cost to him - and more importantly, who will accept the 'terms' on offer. Due to all the rumours flying about, 5 days too late, he puts out a statement that's masks the truth.

Am I right?!

Hello

I am a Falkirk supporter.

In recent months there has been speculation (around Falkirk circles) that Blackpool have been earmarking Falkirk manager John Hughes. Apparently, 1 of Blackpool`s reasons for their interest stemmed from the fact John Hughes has been recommended by Burnley manager Owen Coyle (who was once John Hughes` assistant at Falkirk).

Can any Blackpool supporters shed any light on this?

Regards
Arthur Williamson
