Fanatics of Blackpool aren’t happy to see the club suffering relegation from the English League One as they will have to compete in the League Two in the next season.


The 2015-16 season of Blackpool has been so underwhelming that the previous manager, Neil McDonald was sacked.

This is the 2nd successive relegation that Blackpool has experienced as they were previously relegated from the English League Championship. These past few years have been very difficult for Blackpool and supporters of the club have urged the owner Owen Oyston to either sell the club or make an injection of cash or just do something that can help spark life back to the club.

Owen Oyston has recently stated that he does not have any intentions of selling Blackpool ever, despite the recent disappointing seasons of the club.

“It’s not for sale. It’s never really been for sale and I don’t want to sell it. I love it too much to sell it and I want to see it strong. It’s really upsetting. I love the fans and the football club. It’s my life.I’m not complaining about any criticism of how we run the club. We’ve done some things badly wrong. We’ve picked bad managers and we got it wrong when we didn’t have enough players at the start of last season, but those are things we’ll learn from.”Blackpool’s owner Owen Oyston said as he voiced his desire to not sell the club.

The board of directors from Blackpool FC announced that they had taken full responsibility for the relegation of the club as they tried to put pressure off from their own players and stated that this underwhelming season is due to a number of reasons which includes having selected the inappropriate manager, having spent cash in the wrong way and a number of other things which contributed to Blackpool being relegated for the 2nd successive season.
