The blog was started in August 2010 to coincide with the start of Blackpool FC's debut season in the Premier League, aiming to fill a void that existed for websites covering the club. Since launching, the blog has had over 110,000 page views of its content including match reports, in-depth tactics articles, club financials, transfer discussion and much more. The blog is a one-man pastime from the perspective of a current season-ticket holder and supporter of 20+ years.
