Ballard good too.  I’ve had it on mute, has he gone off because Snakey gouged his eye off?

Not sure why, didn't hear the commentator say anything about why he was subbed. Yeah to me Ballard looks like he has lots of potential

Out of contract at Arsenal, 5 N.Ireland caps.  Mark’s tight, gets heads and body in first.  At 21, good future imho.  Would be making a polite enquiry.

Is Yates one of the many players that we’re so say interested in?

Bloody hope so, I’ve done charts for him 🤣🤣🤣

Ballard looks a bit of a leader as well Dave. Was the one telling everyone to hold a high line for a Oxford free kick. Was very impressed with him in both legs.

Forgotten how much I'd missed the fans singing live on the telly instead of those fake crowd noises - the Blackpool choir version at 2-1 tonight of 'you are  f****ng s**t, you are f****ng s**t' brought a tear to my eye 😉

Very very impressed with Blackpool. 
 

Here’s a sign of hope for anyone worried about losing so many players, as well as a sign to City’s hierarchy - you CAN rebuild a team in just one season. 
 

8 of Blackpool’s 10 outfield players joined them this season, and 4 of their 5 subs they used did too. That’s 12 of the 15 players they used tonight who only joined the club this season. And they look like they’d beat half the championship sides. And they only paid a fee for 1 of them - Yates. 
 

Sod this “3 transfer windows” that managers (including Nige) always claim they need. Neil Critchley rebuilt that squad in half a season. They look great to watch.

Dan Ballard - numbers back up the performance.

Best defensive duels success % in League 1, makes a lot of aerial duels.  Doesn’t foul a lot either.

Above average for short / medium passing.

Intercepts well, without having to tackle on his arse.

Think the Brentford keeper is massively over-rated, i may be being harsh & of course you are not expected to save a one on one, but he didnt make it hard for Danjuma to finish by any stretch. His defence should never of put him in that position to begin with however.

Probably waiting for a poor/heavy touch to pounce on and close the angle. Never happened so made it look easy.
