Blackpool Relegated On Cruel Final Day
I'll keep this short because this is obviously a very difficult match report to write, plus unless you've been under a gigantic rock of some sort, you'll be all too aware of the events of earlier as Blackpool were relegated back to the Championship after a 4-2 defeat to Manchester United.
The Seasiders played their hearts out against the champions, but ultimately fell just short of survival.
The game was a pulsating one, with both sides having numerous chances throughout. Despite going down, 'Pool were entertaining to the last.
United took the lead when Park Ji-Sung made the most of a defensive error to poke the hosts ahead. The Korean was a surprise starter as United named a very strong side for the game despite next week's Champions League Final. The Seasiders meanwhile were unchanged.
However, as we all know, 'Pool have a never say die attitude, and a brilliant Charlie Adam freekick brought them level.
'Pool them took the lead early in the second half when Gary Taylor-Fletcher scored a brilliant goal.
Just minutes laters though, United were level was Anderson thumped the ball home.
An Ian Evatt own goal then made it 3-2 before Michael Owen sealed it late on.
A disappointing day, but we can hold our heads high; the Premier League will miss us.
