'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Cork Blimey, Rumours are Flooding In!

Steve Finnan and Jack Cork are the latest names to surface as potential Blackpool targets today.

Finnan - who can join on a free transfer after being relegated with Portsmouth - is an experienced full back, who has played at the top level for both Liverpool and Ireland. At 34, he's now coming to the end of his career.

At just 20, Cork is the type of player that Ian Holloway is looking to bring into the club. Having already had Premiership experience at Burnley, the midfielder could be a shrewd signing.

But all of this is rumour with nothing substantial - despite growing mumurs that 'Pool had a bid for Cork knocked back over the weekend by Chelsea.

Finnan is the only player to have played in all four divisions in England, plus the Conference, whilst also playing in a World Cup and to win both major European competitions. Surprisingly, his depth of footballing experience could see him ply his trade at the unfashionable Bloomfield Road.



As we reported today, the Seasiders have also been linked with Celtic's Paddy McCourt.

Well done on your promotion, unfortinately the trick is to stay up, if you do that it will be great. I hope you dont get Man u first match, probably you really need a good start , but if you are going to play them early, thats the best thing until they get into their stride.

Jack Cork would do a grand job for you next season, not sure if you'll get him though!

Jack would be mighty awesome for you lot- But don't think Chelsea will let him go. He's a proper Chelsea lad, so we'll see what happens.

Cork is awesome - saw him on loan at Watford 18 months ago and boy, does that lad have a future if he can escape reserve team footie at Chelsea!
