41 days to go

41 days to go

It is now 41 days until the new season, and yet it still seems there is a long way to go until the Seasiders will be ready to kick a ball.

With the recent contract offer acceptance by Tony McMahon, it means that Blackpool have just 7 senior players on their books for next season.

Along with a team, new boss Jose Riga also has to set up his back room staff, in which currently only consists of Physio Phil Horner.

With only 7 players, no Backroom staff and only one friendly on the cards, how can Blackpool be expected to be ready to kick off the new season at Forest in 41 days?
