A Solid start

In our latest poll we asked you how you have rated Blackpool's start to the season.
43% of the voters have got it about right I reckon in suggesting we have made a solid start but there is room for improvement.

Certainly the Southampton win was very important to give everyone a confidence boost and to push us up the league table away from that relegation zone.

i'm very happy with 4 points from 4 games, especially considering the amount of injures we had at the start of the season. i just cant help but wonder where we could have been had we not had all those injures and maybe signed a top class striker pre season.
