JOSE COULD BE SEASIDERS’ SPECIAL ONE
IF EVER there was a manager who needed a morale-boosting performance it is surely Jose Riga.
At the end of a week where his job has been offered to Burton Albion’s Gary Rowett, the Belgian has carried on with the task in hand and was rewarded with a muchimproved showing from his Blackpool side – resulting in their first point of the season.
Against a Wolves team who have started the season superbly, Blackpool showed plenty of effort and work rate as ever, but there were small signs of cohesion and understanding starting to develop for the first time this season.
Certainly the fans are right behind their beleaguered boss, chanting his name throughout.
The reality, however, is that Blackpool are a bunch of players who were thrown together in the days before the start of the season.
To get those players to gel and work together will take time. Probably more time than the club have.
