‘We’re all coming home’ – Plenty of Blackpool fans react to significant news

Blackpool fans have been away from their club for far too long. The poisonous reign of the Oyston family has driven them from Bloomfield Road and from the club they love.

The Tangerines have gone from Premier League to League Two, but somehow managed promotion back to the third tier in 2016/17 despite the internal troubles. The legal battles, dwindling crowds and toxic atmosphere have driven them from Europe’s elite division to the brink of complete collapse.

Last night, the official receivers restructured the board, removing Owen Oyston and his daughter Natalie Christopher and replacing them with fresh new faces. They’ve added people who have experience of running a club, people who will doubtless look to make them a viable business once more.

Nothing will bring back the Premier League, nothing will erase the memories left by the family that almost killed the Seasiders, but there’s a change afoot that will bring the supporters back. Many have been in self-imposed exile, refusing to spend money on tickets that goes straight to the owners.

Now, there’s light at the end of the tunnel and there Blackpool fans couldn’t be more delighted.
