NEIL KEEN TO MAKE SIGNINGS
CHAIRMAN Karl Oyston has been painted as a villain at Bloomfield Road but Neil McDonald believes he can be Blackpool’s saviour before the end of the transfer window.
Oyston completed a sixweek ban from all football activity for breaches of FA conduct rules last week following an abusive text exchange with a fan.
It came amid a disastrous campaign last season in which Blackpool dropped down to League One, with Oyston drawing much of the supporters’ ire.
“We have three or four plates spinning. It does take time to recruit players,” said McDonald, who saw his side pick up just one point in their opening three matches.
“In just over two months we’ve got 11 players through the door and I think we’ve done well with that.
“Hopefully the chairman coming back can help us get more over the line and I think he can make a big difference for us.We have lots of problems off the pitch and it’s been difficult.
“It’s been difficult trying to bring players in without the chairman being around.
“There’s no point moaning, though, and hopefully we can move forwards now.”
