jordanmarshallBFC - "i can formally announce that after ian holloways dismissal last week i have been approached by blackpool's owner Owen Oyston"

last week i was watching sky sports, and i was in disarray to see a fan favourite step down as blackpool manager. I would never wanted ian to leave as he has done wonders for this club but i recieved a phone call from Owen Oyston, And he had asked me to take over as manager of blackpool. With blackpool being my boyhood club i could'nt say no and now i hope to follow in ian's footsteps. My main priority is too try and keep blackpool in the premiership and my first game on the 2nd of febuary is a very important one being against wigan which will be a big match in the fight for survival

earlier today sky sports reporter ben grimsby went along to Jordan Marshall's press conference ahead of tomorrow's clash against west ham.

"Were you impressed with your sides performance against wigan earlier this week"

"i was very happy with the way my side performed.They showed true commitment for the team.They showed drive , passion and ambition. we faught hard stuck to my chosen formation and used our tactics to our advantage."

"how have u selected your current team, will you be making changes to the side than ian had before as we have notified at the game against wigan you used mostly the same team as ian."


"everyone will get a chance at this club, they all no there place and no that i will be judging on there current form. i will need to pick the best possible team at that current time to boost our chances of survival"

"west ham's scott parker will be a key man in your saturday game what do you think off scott"

"i highly rate scott as i think he's a world class striker and one day i hope to work with him as i think he can add a huge boot to anyteam, we will make sure that we mark him closely and track him at all times but will also need to concentrate on other players , as west ham have a solid team"

"and finnally what do you think the score will be on saturday"

it will be a very tough one on the bases that west ham are currently 8th, we will give it our all but dont expect to get much from the game, but what we are certain we will get from the game is weaknesses and strenghts of the side"

february 5th

it was the day of the match and i took the players aside and wished them look on the game, told them the playing style and told them to give it there all. result does'nt matter if they have performed.

MATCH REPORT
we went out there and started passing the ball around , we had a few early chances but then in the 45th minute we got caught on the break. at half time i told the lads to calm down keep your heads up and try and play the football you want to play. we started the half very well , we attacked well and has some brilliant chances but rob was on top form, we were once again caught on the break at 57 minutes but luckily the defence had played the offside trap to there advantage.




but we continued to attack but could'nt find the goal we needed. but then in 73 minutes carlton cole scored the goal that sent us back to the training ground. i am was a little dissapointed but the performance was solid and gave it a real go despite the result, the fans may see the result and be dissapointed but they shuld really no how much there players gave tonight, they showed real passion to the club and that is remarkable.



6th february
there was an important game in the fight for survival as 19th place birmingham faced 17th place west brom, the best result for me would have been 1-1 draw as we would not be to far from west brom but still be in 18th. the final score was 1-1 bringing us great hope

a midweek international game gave us chance to rebuild and atttempt to work on our tactics, we started working hard at increasing the man marking at the back and when to use the offside trap and when not to. we also worked on the crossing so we can use the wings to more affect
