After being relegated last season from the Championship, fate has dealt the Tangerines another duff hand with relegation to the fourth tier of English football for the first time since 2001.
Whilst there was no repeat of last season’s pitch invasion and centre-circle sit-in by Blackpool fans, relegation was still confirmed by a brutal 5-1 defeat at the hands of Peterborough United at their ABAX Stadium,
The defeat, mirroring Blackpool’s season wasn’t pretty with the Seasiders clinically taken apart by a ruthless Peterborough side watched by Steve Evans – the man rumoured to be the next man in the Posh hotseat.
Like Evans’ Leeds United, there is a schism between fans and the club based around the owners and the way they are running the club at what fans see as a detriment. Leeds United have Massimo Cellino, Blackpool have their Karl Oyston and both have their protesting fans.
