Blackpool here we come

So it's Blackpool - which should make for a much friendlier atmosphere at Wembley. Our biggest danger is complacency having beaten then 4-0 at home and 4-1 away with ten men and Lansbury in goal. Ian Holloway is a fine motivator and they have a great record in the play-offs, having won them two years ago. As underdogs they should play with some freedom... so we have to remain professional and patient. Though having said that, their defence looked really ropey against us at Upton Park, which offers us hope. Who will be "getting the bird in the taxi", to use Ian Holloway's unreconstructed metaphor? Hopefully us, though in a very respectful post-feminist manner. Irons!
