Welcome up, Blackpool FC and Bloomfield Road

I’m late in welcoming Blackpool FC to the Premier League for next season. Bloomfield Road, the Seasider’s home ground, may look little like it does in this wonderful aerial shot from the 1950s, but the painted exhortation ‘O Be Joyful’ will be ringing true both for Tangerine-clad BFC fans and visiting supporters, who have effectively swapped an away trip to Burnley for the delights of a visit to the Lancashire coast.

It’s a shame that the  mighty Kop, filled to bursting in this picture, won’t be there to admire. But Blackpool away is going to be the first fixture I look for when the fixtures are announced.
