Blackpool FC took a step nearer the premiership today when they beat Notts Forest 2-1 in the play-offs. It's heady times at the club with the premiership getting tantalisingly closer. 

I watched the match on Sky this afternoon and was blown away by the atmosphere generated by the brilliant seasider fans. The fans and everyone at the club deserve some success - after all it's been a long time coming since the last flush of success from the Matthews and Morty glory days of the early 50's.  

Three people deserve massive credit for the latest success at Bloomfield Road... 
Karl Oyston, 'Pools chairman who has kept a tight ship and finally delivered on the new stadium which is magnificent. Ian Holloway who has managed the team through to the play-offs and has engineered the team into an excellent footballing unit (especially at home), and lastly..Charlie Adam, Blackpool's midfield talisman. He's the lynch pin of the squad, scores a few goals, takes the penalties and is not afraid to put the boot into a tackle. 

There's a long way to go yet and I really hope they do it. Blackpool hosting Man Utd and Chelsea next season? Wow, what a prospect...

The future's bright... the future's tangerine.
