Blackpool - Yes us again

Good afternoon. I know you have more than enough on your plate but also that some are interested in what’s happening at our club.
Well we are at the end of the first 3 weeks of High Court action in London where Valeri Belokon is going after the Oystons for, allegedly, unfair treatment of minority shareholders. Basically, allegedly, he wants his fair share of the profits from the investment he made. The outcome, which could potentially involve several million will be known later this year. Whether this affects their continued ownership of BFC, who knows.
All this has been going on in court in London and each day, Pool fans have been in attendance (25 there earlier this week). Their notes are on our site. Quite complex stuff but worth dipping into if interested.

  • thanks for the info and good luck in your fight
  • Thanks @Hertsseasider alwayd keen to here the latest from you guys, all the best both on and off the pitch for the coming season, looking forward to our December get together!
  • All clubs should stick together in these situations. We need each other in order to exist. But in lieu of any clubs with actual clout giving a shit, we have to rely on those who can empathise (I remember Liverpool acting like the world should care for their ownership plight, but where are they when it comes to helping our cause?).

    As such, thanks for the update, it's always welcome.
  • I've been following the notes on the tangerine knights fb page on and off while this has been going on. Seems pretty complex stuff but I hope that somehow something positive for the fans comes out of it.

    Actually, while you could not be expected to know this, the North Western big club Trusts have been showing a lot of support for Blackpool, including Spirit of Shankly, who I think provided financial support for a Blackpool protest, although I can't remember the details.

  • Please keep us informed.
  • Good luck and here's to a brighter future.
  • Well, their future on the pitch certainly looks brighter at the moment. And, for whatever reason, the gates are rising. Yesterday's was 5,200.

    Well, their future on the pitch certainly looks brighter at the moment. And, for whatever reason, the gates are rising. Yesterday's was 5,200.

    That's the dilemma, isn't it? At the end of the day, most people just want to watch football and enjoy what they see. Then dreadful owners like the Oystons say, "see, we know what we are doing and all those protesting fans don't"

    What's your view of this, @Hertsseasider ? We have the same dilemma as you.

  • Good luck and don't give up.
  • I wish Blackpool fans all the best in their fight against the arrogant and disgusting Oystons. Charlton Athletic cannot succeed with Duchatelet in charge but you have to remind yourself that it could be worse - the Oystons always spring to mind.
  • Good luck with your fight Blackpool. We are with you brothers and sisters
