Oyston: 'Pool Set To Appeal Fine

Oyston: 'Pool Set To Appeal Fine

In the last hour, Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston has given an interview to Talksport in which he criticised the Premier League for fining the Seasiders for fielding a weakened team against Aston Villa earlier in the season.

The chairman also confirmed that the Seasiders are likely to appeal against the decision, and stated that 'Pool manager Ian Holloway is fuming about it, but that he would not allow him to follow through on his threat of resigning.

Oyston said:

'I've got real difficulties grasping the logic that's been applied to this on several levels.

'This game has been turned into a squad game by the Premier League, not us. We've named our squad in good faith and we intend to use all of that squad and the manager should be allowed to.

'It wasn't that we put players out that weren't competitive. We lost the game 3-2, quite narrowly.

'If you win and make changes is that OK and if you lose is that not OK? I think they need to clarify things.

'We have to nominate 25 players ahead of the season, that's what we've done. If the Premier League think those players aren't good enough to appear on our behalf then maybe they should tell us that as we nominate them and maybe they should pick our team for us.

'I think for Ian to even consider resigning when he's done so magnificently well for us since he was appointed is something that I certainly wouldn't preside over.

'I'll do everything in my power to ensure that Ian stays with Blackpool as long as I can keep him there.'

Best to give an interview to the slackjaws that populate TalkMoron, who will not point out the rules, that your club signed up to and agreed at the beginning of the season. Why not let your manager resign in protest, and then you can trouser the cut he would have had when you sell squad player Charlie Adam for a club record fee? That's the same Mr. Adam who was not good enough to get in the team versus Villa, wasn't it?

To my knowledge I have never tried to purchase a footblah. If I do require something of similar worth I will consult an RSJ specialist at my local builders merchant.

We signed up to and agreed to the rules at the start of the season that we registered a pool of 25 players, along with a few U21's, whom we may call upon AT ANY TIME during the season to make up our match-day squad of 18/19. We make 10 changes, 25k fine. Arsenal make 8 changes and drop points to a club in peril... nothing. Consistency?
