Who Are The League One Managers? No.3: Neil Critchley (Blackpool):

Hands up if you can give three facts about new Blackpool head coach Neil Critchley: Liverpool U23, Blackpool, and…? Well, you are not alone. Rather than plunder the familiar merry-go-round of journeyman managers, Blackpool have employed a degree of foresight in filling a post that has seen no fewer than nine incumbents in a little over six years.

Q&A With One Blackpool Supporter (Who Are Ya?):

"Love what he's done with the place! Cleared out the troublemakers, brought in some good boys, and is developing them really well."

"The players mustn't let the occasion get to them. It will be a strange atmosphere, a big stadium with a small but passionate crowd..."

Just saw this stat in the BBC preview of the game

"Lincoln City are looking to reach the second tier of English football for the first time in 60 years, last playing at that level in 1960-61. They could be the first ever team to win promotion from the non-league, fourth tier and third tier in the space of five seasons, having won the National League in 2016-17 and League Two in 2018-19"

Quite remarkable really. To be the first team EVER to go from non league to Championship in 5 seasons if we win today.

The big day is finally here. Viewing arrangements all sorted which will include a bonus bbq so should be a great afternoon. Even my match day programme arrived on time so everything is set and ready to go. Come on lads, we can do this 👏👏👏👊💥 UTI
I’ve ordered mine but it’ll take three or four weeks to get here. Better late than never 👍. Match tonight at 10pm for me, live on Foxtel. No BBQ either as it’s precipitating heavily here ☹️. Have a great day and let’s hope for a glorious outcome for the Imps 🤞
