I think Page also let himself down by his stubborn reluctance to use any of Chris Wilder's players. An example might have been to pair Revell with Marquis/Collins instead of him being a replacement, perhaps finances didn't allow? who knows?
I can understand him wanting to prove himself and maybe he would have in time, but his "men against girls" comment was like a suicide note.

Strange post where the penultimate sentence contradicts your opening para! The men against girls comment was clumsy at the time but in view of the team performance on the day most probably correct? Since he left his career appears to have prospered and vindicated yesterday! Yet another case on here how silly we all look now!

PS Hasselbank is another and most probably Curle will prosper!

The guy said heíd barely make any changes to Wilders squad, and then went and made 14 signings, of which the majority were terrible. First thing he did was sign Raheem Hanley. The writing was on the wall from the day he started.

Full credit to Kelvin Thomas and co. for assembling this fantastic non-playing staff team during this off-season period - Brady, Calderwood, Rico, Sammo, Carr, Foyle. I can't think that there will be many teams, if any at all, in our division that will have a better backroom staff than we do now. All seem to be committed to this being a project (2+ years minimum) and this should stand us in great stead for the future!

The first team additions have been strong too (in my opinion).

The club is starting to have quite a good feeling to it again!

I agree about the non-playing staff - need a few more quality additions in the key Goalkeeper and Centre Back positions now.  I know very little about the new signings other than the show-reels and the comments from the supporters at their former clubs which are a little bit disconcerting but we shall see in the fullness of time.

I have no problem stating NOW that I am confident and pleased in the off-field management.

Now for continued recruitment of players for the fans to get behind.

You'd think after all he's done for Blackpool, they'd waive the "period of notice" wouldn't you?...plus they mugged us off with the prolific Joe Nuttall... Roll Eyes

Blackpool Football Club can confirm that Colin Calderwood is to leave his position on the coaching staff in order to pursue an opportunity with Northampton Town.

The 56-year-old, who lives in Northamptonshire, is now working a period of notice, having joined the Seasiders as an Assistant Head Coach in October 2020.

The Club would like to place on record its thanks to Colin for all his efforts throughout the season and wish him the very best of luck for the future.

Agree with all this. I don't normally mooch around on other forums but a quick glance on Blackpools would suggest they believe him instrumental in their success last season, especially with defensive organisation, which we all know about. His teams are as tight as a ducks arse at the back.

Exciting times.

Well Rob Page was rubbish for us wasnít he? How many other managers can we collectively name who have been hopeless for us but have been inexplicably successful elsewhere? Tony Barton was probably the pick of the bunch. Perhaps itís because there is a curse that has befallen the club. On the other hand maybe itís because itís sport, so by nature has an element of unpredictability therefore things wonít always go as intended. The minute they donít naturally everybody has no effing patience whatsoever and itís off with their head. Thereís a moral here somewhere, not that anyone will listen. I just hope when Lady Luck desserts JB as it will at some point he gets cut some slack. That would make a refreshing change and might save yet another load of expensive heart ache.

He wasn't useless as yesterday proved. More likely our prejudicial expert opinions were useless.  I don't think Curle deserved the sack either.  Do you think the players were blameless? However I like the idea of Calderwood 'is back', one of the rare Managers we have not sacked. Just think how this board, after the Tranmere game back in 2015 reacted with howls for CW to be sacked Roll Eyes

If we cannot manage our expectations better we will still be a Cinderella Club within 2/3 years.
