Blackpool Fans Hail On-loan Arsenal Star After He Impressed With First Goal
When Arsenal struck a deal with Blackpool for the loan transfer of youngster Daniel Ballard, some of the club's fans were against the idea and spoke of their disappointment at the club's decision to let him leave. However, the move comes at a time when the player was not getting the opportunity to play football and that seemed like the only available option back then.
The 21-year-old has been impressing since signing for Blackpool and his development took a huge step further after he scored his very first EFL goal for Blackpool on Tuesday. He was the star of the show as he helped his temporary club score a 1-1 draw against fellow League One club Crewe Alexandra. Ballard was the scorer of the first goal of the match after making a couple of fine efforts and runs while terrorizing the Crewe defenders.
His overall performance was also impressive and his manager spoke great words of him after the match. His contributions to the team have not gone unnoticed this season, with Blackpool fans hailing him for his huge progress and development while also helping the club grab precious points in the process.
Blackpool are the 11th team in League One currently but they could move further up the table if they win their game in hand. They will also be eager to help Ballard maintain his fine form as he would prove to be a great part of the squad on their way to earning a place in the play-offs.
Blackpool fans have taken to social media to heap praises on Ballard, with some saying that the defender will be a top star in the future. Others say that Blackpool should keep him and offer him the opportunity to be a club legend.
