January Speculation

Rotherham and Lincoln continue to monitor 7-goal forward as Blackburn Rovers and Blackpool also circle

Rotherham United and Lincoln City both sent scouts to watch Notts County forward Ruben Rodrigues in action for the National League side against Rochdale in the FA Cup on Tuesday night, according to Nottinghamshire Live.

Rodrigues has emerged on the radar of numerous clubs this season following his impressive form for Notts County in the National League this term.

The 25-year-old has managed to fire home seven goals in his 15 league appearances this term to date and that has played a major role in establishing them amongst the teams chasing automatic promotion to the Football League.

It has already been reported that both League One dup Rotherham and Lincoln are interested in making a potential move for Rodrigues ahead of the January transfer window. While there has also been reports that Championship Blackpool are also one of the other teams that are keeping a watchful eye over the forward’s development.

According to the latest report from Nottinghamshire Live, Blackburn Rovers are also potentially interested in Rodrigues and they have also been monitoring his performances for Notts County in the National League this season.

The report from Nottinghamshire Live added that Rotherham and Lincoln have once again sent scouts to watch the forward in action for Notts County. That came with the 25-year-old playing the full 90 minutes as the National League side were beaten 2-1 at home by Rochdale in the FA Cup first round.

The verdict

You would have to say that it is reaching the stage where Notts County are going to do very well to be able to keep hold of Rodrigues during the January transfer window considering that Rotherham and Lincoln are showing such an interest in his performances at the moment.
Rodrigues looks the sort of player that has the quality to progress beyond the National League and make an impact in the Football League.

Rotherham and Lincoln will both be searching for that extra bit of quality in the winter window to help them push for automatic promotion and the play-offs respectively and the 25-year-old might be someone that can come in and help them achieve that.

Blackpool and Blackburn are also very attractive potential destinations for Rodrigues given that they could offer him the chance to leap up to Championship level. However, whether he is ready to take that big of a step up remains to be seen and it will be interesting to see if either of the Lancashire clubs firm up their interest.

Club Statement
at 19:40 27 Sep 2021

Club Statement

Blackpool Football Club is working with the relevant authorities to identify certain individuals who opted to throw pyrotechnics and missiles during Saturday’s league fixture against Barnsley.

The Club will not accept such behaviour from a small minority at matches and adopts a zero-tolerance policy on the matter. These actions harm the Club’s reputation and run the risk of FA sanctions, which could see the Club fined, forced to partially close areas of its stadium and face increasing costs for the stewarding and policing of matches.

The financial consequences of this could affect spending on the first-team squad and infrastructure, as well as potentially impacting the price of tickets for future games. Away allocations may also be restricted.

Anybody identified as engaging in such activity will be subject to the appropriate sanctions, including banning orders and criminal prosecution. If anyone has any information connected to the incidents, they can contact Lancashire Police on 101.

Chief Executive Ben Mansford said:

“At a time when the Club is aiming to re-connect and attract a new generation of supporters to Bloomfield Road, it is sad that a small number are potentially jeopardising so much good work from so many connected to the Club.

“The passion of our supporters, which has created tremendous atmospheres both at home and away, has been lauded for the right reasons this season. However, we will not allow the behaviour of a few to ruin it for the fantastic support of the majority.

“The health and safety of all those inside football stadiums is paramount. We will be working with the SLO, fan groups and Lancashire Police to prevent further issues, like those witnessed, from occurring.”

Appointed as the Calderwood replacement.

It'd seem like a good move by the club. Time will tell.

A nice series that won't give you any nightmares.

Leadership and motivation.

Give it a try if you haven't already done so.

I was led to believe that Boris' hugely successful vaccine program had vanquished the virus.

I thought he'd done something right for once. It appears not.

Stay safe.

The Injury List
at 05:53 5 May 2021

Gabriel was injured last night so that makes 9 players out for one reason or another while 3 players are in the process of returning to full first team action.

Jordan Gabriel: Injured last night. Return date - no details as of yet.

Daniel Gretarsson: Dislocated his elbow on 2nd April in the win against Swindon. Return date - unknown but he can't be all that far away. It'd be good to see him at least on the bench against Bristol Rovers.

Matty Virtue: Hobbled off against after 70 mins in the win against Oxford with a knee injury. Return date - won't be featuring in the play offs.

Ethan Robson: Went off in the first half last weekend, 1st May, against Nothampton. Return date - unkown, it could be a knock or something more serious. To be updated.

Grant Ward: Felt his calf against Sunderland, 27th April. Retrun date - I wouldn't be surpeised to see him feature against Bristol Rovers on Saturday.

Sullay Kaikai: Suffered a hamstring tweak against Sunderland, 27th April, and was pulled during the warm up in the following game against Northampton. Return date: He should be available for selection against Bristol Rovers.

CJ Hamilton: Has had surgery on his 5th metatarsal after the draw with Fleetwood on 13th March. Return date - start of next season.

Gary Madine: Last played in the 5-0 win at Wigan on 26th January and hasn't been able to shake off a groin problem since. Return date - unknown.

Bez Lubala: Played in the Wigan game where Madine picked up his groin strain. Not injured but not available for selection due a a 'club issue'. Return date - unknown.

Recent casualties Kevin Stewart, Keshi Anderson, and Marvin Ekpiteta are currently being integrated back into the first team.

I think we can safely say that James Husband is now back up to full speed.

Any updates / correction of inaccuracies appreciated.
