Blackpool 0 Huddersfield 0 - so the Football League have come up with a damning result of the Seasiders draw game against the Terriers - they've awarded us a point! Some did question how we were ever going to get a clean sheet under Lee Clark and now we have the answer! Get the fans to invade the pitch on 47 minutes and you get a point anyway. However, it's not the end of the matter and the bad news may be around the corner.
In a Football League statement they announced today:
At its meeting in London today, the Board of Directors of The Football League considered matters relating to the abandoned Sky Bet Championship match between Blackpool and Huddersfield Town on May 2.
The Board took the view that the 0-0 scoreline that stood at the time of the game's abandonment (in the 48th minute) should be officially recorded as the final result of the match, as it believes that league points should always be earned on the field of play.
In addition, the Board agreed to charge Blackpool with failing to fulfil a fixture and the matter will be heard by a Football Disciplinary Commission in due course.
In making its judgment the FDC will be asked to consider any matters relating to compensation to Huddersfield Town and ticket refunds to supporters.
The Board also asked its executive to review the League's regulations regarding abandonments to ensure that any such matches can always be played to a conclusion or replayed altogether if deemed necessary.
The shame and the embarrassment of Season 14/15 doesn't seem to want to end and the dithering and weak Football League don't seem to want to put it out of it's misery.
