    Barnsley v Blackpool Match Thread

    Well here we are again and hopefully the last home game of the season .

    Our objective is pretty straight forward , we simply have to win , there's no margin for error , it's not in our hands .

    Blackpool are one the best of the rest clubs outside the top six , it won't be easy .

    Should be a huge crowd with Blackpool bringing 1500 to boot .

    It's going to be tense and nervy and fans thoughts are also going to be at the SOL and keeping track on the Sunderland v Pompey game .

    An interesting afternoon awaits .

    UP THE FOOTBALL LEAGUE WE GO

    Bringing around 800 according to their forum so way out on my prediction .

    I thought they'd bring double that given it's their last away game of the season , Oyston gone and had a decent season themselves .

    I reckon around 15k myself .

    A restless night , up several times and called feck it at 7am this morning .

    Earlier start for me than usual and a few pints pre match is an absolute necessity today I feel , nowt heavy just enough to take the edge off the day .

    Feels like Bradford in 1997 , even the weather is similar .

    I sincerely hope we get the result we desire today and at the SOL and tonight we have taken a huge step towards promotion back to the championship .

    Well.... where is my nails!!?? It’s now in our own hands, and hopefully we may even have the job done before.
    Patience pays off and perhaps we could have had another three or four!
    This ending is coming together. Bristol now safe so hopefully we can take advantage of that relief and get the win and cement our position.
    I can’t wait for next week. Just didnt want us to b@lls it up on our own manor today in front of our fans.

    Wow just wow , brilliant results elsewhere , couldn't have asked for anymore .

    The tension today was unbearable at times for me , when we went a goal down I was absolutely devastated and thought we were going to come up short .

    Huge relief when Woodrow leveled , to tell the truth the second half was an easier ride with Blackpool unable to get out of their own half and more a question of when we'd score and not if .

    Lindsay headed home and we should have had far more but it didn't matter in the end .

    Burst in to tears when I got home and JLO greeted me , the emotion of the afternoon just came out I guess .

    Daft old tw@t that I am .

    On the beer now guys and I'm getting shyte faced tonight .

    UP THE FOOTBALL LEAGUE WE GO .

    Emotional mate.
    Fair play to Blackpool, nowt to play for but huffed and puffed.
    Didn’t roll over and decent comments from their manager. Hope their club and fans get more from next season now they have their club back

    Only thing that's gone wrong this afternoon was Greggs running out of sausage rolls.

    Lindsay scores the winner. Perfect.

    Despite the tension in the first half, the reds managed the 2nd very well. Pretty much one way traffic, thankfully otherwise i may have a few more grey hairs! Could and should have been 3 or 4 but job done and results couldn't have gone better.
    what a spirit there is in this team. Stendel, Woodrow and Browny were all mobbed during the lap of appreciation and stendel looked like he was absolutely buzzing....

    not sure why but even 0-1 down was not too worried, awful conditions but most of the game we did try to play the ball on the deck - Still not over the line yet but a massive result and other games going our way

    HAPPY DAYS!

    And despite losing recently to Portsmouth, credit once again to Burton for beating one of the top teams.
    Blacky had now to play for but I was worried that nerves or bad luck might hurt us today.
    The excitement is building now and it's definitely back in our hands.

    I don’t think that Mr Clough (junior) would roll the shutters down and prepare for the seasons end until it’s finished. He would have been brought up with the ethic that you go out to win in everything you do. You do it to to best of your ability and play the game right.
    His father would have taught him that. Respect to both. We have had close ties with Burton as regards Stephen Croft incident, yet they afforded us no favours when visiting their ground and needing points. How it should be. That’s how respect in the game for clubs and people is earned.
    We stayed up a few years ago at Huddersfield playing a “Clever game” and sent Peterborough down. Was it right to do that? Our club probably lost some respect that day. At the time it felt good, yet it’s only on days like today, when teams like Burton. Who have nothing to play for but turn out and play a proper game to beat Luton and give us a chance of the Championship do you question it.
    Blackpool came today, and played to win. We were better, and yet I didn’t see any “Sandals packed, ready for the beach” Respect to them too. Makes today’s performance more worthy.

    Some good points there Jules and food for thought .

    I wonder what would have happened next week at Bristol Rovers if Rovers needed a point to be certain of staying up and ourselves automatic promotion ?

    Quite probably a result would have been contrived. Weíd be all happy, yet some other team would lose its respect for us like Peterborough did. I canít say itís right nor wrong really. Just feels uneasy
