Looks like Cubero has gone as well
Sunday, 17th May 2015 17:49 by Editor

So where does the never ending procession of players leaving Bloomfield Road end? It would appear that Blackpool's quest to hold on to Jose Cubero may be in vain after the midfielder said that a work permit could be a problem in League One.

La Nacion Deportes reported (and we have had to use a Spanish to English on line translation site), José Miguel Cubero confesses that he has options to return to the country (Costa Rica) and seeking his departure from the English Blackpool after his team down to the third division. He told La Nacion that the obtaining work permits could define his tenure in the British club. "We know that there is a year of contract, so you have to reach an agreement. My agent told me that you need three weeks to define the work permit, because if they do not give it me, that helps out, but hurts me because I could not continue playing in England. It is possible to play at a club in the same Championship (second division), but we are in that, "said.

To be consulted about their options in the tico Championship, the player revealed: "there are people who have approached me. We have been talking and it is important to remember that, while the season has been difficult for me." The midfielder said that his intention is to continue playing abroad, but has not ruled out staying in Costa Rica.

With no manager, Orlandi, O'Hara and Lewis all seemingly now having moved on and with just a handful of players left whoever comes in to Bloomfield Road now has one Hell of a job on their hands. Maybe Lee Clark realised that there would just be him and those random players left at the club and the task in hand was just too great especially with the Oyston's tight grip on the purse strings and the increasingly negative press that the club is attracting.

Time is ticking .. and you get the feeling there is a time bomb at the end of it waiting to go off.

Is there only me who was never actually that impressed with him? Played a few decent balls but was fairly anonymous in most games and I think he would have gone missing again very early on next season. Clear as soon as the Oriol's went that he didn't want to be here. Can't say I'm that upset.

Did anyone really think that after his season with Blackpool that Cubero would return! It was always inevitable that he wouldn't come back. I used to see him when he was injured and always looked like he'd been slapped round the face with a wet kipper! He would have lasted 5 minutes in League One with his acrobatics and his rolling around the floor (great pic by the way - how I'll remember him!).

Talented player, way too good for the team he had around him and on that disgrace of a pitch but the one remaining memory of Jose Riga which has now gone. Thanks Jose - it was never going to work!

Had Cubero played with the team that Riga wanted to assemble then he could have been a jewel in the crown - alongside some of the team he ended up with he may as well have got his deckchair out and topped up his tan. End of the day we didn't even bother with a striker for most of the games he did play!

Maybe, judging by what he said in this interview, Clark got wind of what was going to happen with Cubero ...

And Clark feels the Costa Rican will have a big part to play in the future.

“We’ve activated Jose’s contract and we are delighted he’ll be staying with us next season,” he said.

“You worry about some players being able to cope with League One but I think you can see he’s very competitive and plays the game at a high tempo, so I have no worries about him in a lower league.”

“He’s the exact reverse of the type of player I don’t like.

Sounds to me like he just wants away and they probably have a clause - like Orlandi - that if the side are relegated then then contract extension can be negotiated.
