|What is this all about?
It’s very easy to answer that, but harder to realise.
‘To write about Blackpool matches and tactics’.
However, what I want to do may prove harder to do given time constraints and my general apathy to anything once I start it. I’ve always been good at starting things, but always harder to sustain my enthusiasm. Yawn!
If I had a vision for this blog it would be something akin to the site Zonal Marking, and other great blogs out there at the moment, but with the focus on Blackpool. Essentially, it will be a reporting of football based on clear evidence rather than journalistic nonsense that the national media tend to bash out. I will never use the phrase, ‘get in their faces’ or ‘up and at em’.
My desire to write this comes from an interest in football, that is based around the usual childish enthusiasm that the sport can generate, to wanting to understand more about how teams can beat each other through their tactical approach.
I’ve often found myself watching Blackpool over the last year thinking that I can see clear patterns of play and wondered how the press would interpret our matches, only to be humoured by someone who may never have been at the match after reading words like ‘another spirited performance’.
Hopefully, by now you know that I’m hoping to do, if not then hopefully that will become clear in time.
