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

Why Aren't Players Interested In Staying?

Stephen Crainey has now become the latest player to turn down Blackpool's offer of a new deal and instead has decided to sign a contract at Championship rivals Wigan Athletic, and with Crainey being one of only several players to leave Blackpool this summer Pool fans will have to worry as to why players simply don't want to be at Blackpool anymore.

Chairman Karl Oyston has come under scrutiny about his financial decisions before, and many of us must be wondering whether the reason for players wanting to leave is simply that he will not play the players enough wages. Obviously we all prefer the players that are more interested in playing football than being paid a huge lump sum of money, however nowadays football is a game that revolves around money and if players aren't being paid what they think they are worth they are likely to want to move to a club where money is not a problem.

Another important factor that could affect these players decisions is due to the situation that went on last season. It is no secret that the club became a slight laughing stock, with the departure of two managers with one of the managers reigns being extremely short. This could easily have affected players at the club who could have been driven away by the mess the club was in last season, players are far more likely to want to play for a club where stress is low and managers aren't going in and out every half a season.

Pool losing some of their key members of their squad will be a huge loss next season, players like Crainey and Taylor-Fletcher (if he goes against signing a deal) have been long serving members of the club and were a key part of the squad that won promotion and very nearly stayed up. If Blackpool are allowing these sorts of players to leave and do not succeed in signing new and talented footballers, then next season could again be one to forget for the Tangerines.
