  1. As per the title…..https://www.blackpoolgazette.co.uk/sport/football/blackpool-fc/morecambe-1-1-blackpool-cj-hamilton-rescues-the-seasiders-a-draw-in-final-pre-season-friendly-ahead-of-bristol-city-opener-3330305 Lost someone to injury and looked susceptible on the counter attack.

  3. Second half reflections…..greater intensity from us with quicker closing down/ pressing and therefore denying AV the time/space they had in the first half. Scott and Bell looked mature beyond their years. Could have had a pen on 57 minutes, following a good ball from AW to CM. On the hour Villa demonstrate clinical finishing with their first chance of the half, which rather took the shine off our promising start to the half. On several occasions El Ghazi provided them with an outlet who quickly turned defence into attack. We created several half chances without ever really looking like scoring. Thought Matty James had a solid game (subbed on 75 mins). Thankfully no sign of any injuries. Simpson, Nagy, Bell and Wells (playing central) all got at least 30 minutes. With Pring and Bakinson both getting 15 minutes. All-in-all a good training game for us which showed our improvements/strengths and weaknesses. Compared with last season a more entertaining watch, with us more workmanlike, in better shape physically and with a greater balance throughout. As we know creativity, and even more so, goal scoring remain key unresolved concerns.
  4. First half reflections. Brilliant to have fans back! Good training experience. Villa very comfortable with lots of time / space and playing well within themselves. Looks like if they stepped it up a bit they could add to their lead. We look well organized and have kept our shape. Predictably there’s been very little from us going forward. Atkinson has looked at home, Palmer has had a couple of moments, James looks comfortable. We are giving them the freedom of AG in their half and so it’s a bit attack against defence at times. Overall that half illustrates the gulf between Championship and Premiership teams.

  9. Dhamaka in Clare Street is the place for superb Indian street food.
  10. Slightly wider afield, Noggins chippy in Nailsea is consistently excellent.
  11. Just learnt that Bells Diner is permanently closed. Recent trip back home meant a bit of eating out all these were good, Quay Street Diner, Franco Manco, Honest, the last two are both in Clare Street.
  12. Got baked today, so will be staying indoors tomorrow.
  13. No idea, but I remember Gordon Low
