Sandgroanun from the forum on 'Pool's 2-1 home win against Crewe.

If life really does begin at forty then Blackpool`s league season now has six mini cup finals in front of it! And with a four point gap between us and our nearest rivals our destiny really does lie in our own hands.

The two games this week have epitomised what we have come to expect of the Seasiders in 2006-7. Fresh from a hard earned victory at Bradford you would have backed the team to make their game in hand count on Tuesday night at bottom of the table Rotherham. But without the midfield craft of David Fox we looked short on ideas and fell to defeat by a solitary strike.

Saturday`s fare on the other hand was a more palatable dish. With Foxy back after injury, and Chris Brandon in for his debut we had better shape and invention in midfield. Even the return to the starting line up of our favourite bad boy, Keigan Parker seemed to energise the team. A Crewe side lacking its prolific strikers Varney and Maynard was there for the taking and we went ahead after only fifteen minutes.

Wes Hoolahan`s wonder strike capped yet another mercurial performance from the wee Irish man. Robbie Williams` brilliant free kick for the second was no more than we deserved and a final score of 2-1 certainly flattered our visitors.

Looking at Larry`s recent loan signings it`s interesting to note that they are all used to being winners at this level. The likes of Paul Rachubka, Chris Brandon and Robbie Williams all played in the divisional play-offs last season and their experience could yet prove crucial if we are to kick on and finish in the Top Six.

Good read Sandy. I just hope we can keep the results coming in and maybe who knows might just get in automatic spot. One can Dream
