Manager Search Continues

Manager Search Continues

Blackpools manager search today continues after Blackpool had their bid for manager Jackie McNamara Blocked by his parent club Dundee United.

Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston has gone on record saying that he is looking to put right the bad decisions of the past 2 years since Ian Holloway has left the club.

Oyston has been in talks with people close to him in the football business including Jimmy Armfield for their views on what they would look for in a new potential Manager.

Oyston originally set himself a 10 day deadline to appoint a new manager, who would have a big task ahead of them rebuilding the pool squad.

Blackpool may still yet wait until after Dundee Uniteds Scottish cup final this month and then try to make another approach for the man they want.
