Do share please

It was a great story about him turning up with his Blackpool team kicking us off the pitch, winning 1-0, our players "moaning and crying" and his captain throwing a bees player through the home dressing room door. He then described how much he enjoyed the journey home. Seriously came across as an absolute tool - no recognition of a great old stadium just pure self indulgence "look what my successful northern hardman style did to the soft southern pansies" His whole performance was a please give me a job pukefest!

If my memory serves, i don't think his team enjoyed the walk to the team coach very much.
If it's the game I'm thinking about it very lively outside the front of GP.
Didn't involve Jamie Bates in the showers. Make your own jokes lol.

Allardyce was only manager at Blackpool for a short time, 94-6?

I am trying to remember the game I was at when he played against us and the opposing team got a free kick about 35 yards out. The legendary "bloke behind me" muttered "I suppose fecking Allardyce will take it with his head."

Why was he on Quest this weekend...seems a bit odd for him to be on there. Maybe he's given up on a Prem job...

Apart from his 'witty anecdote', he contributed zilch to any match analysis, doing a John Murray with his statements of the bleeding' obvious. It's clear he know-nothing about the Championship.

As far as I can tell, he played us twice as Blackpool manager in the two seasons before he was sacked - lost 3-2, won 2-1. Where's this 1-0 game?
