Championship Q & A: Blackpool

Championship Q & A: Blackpool

Vital Blackpool's Jack Gaughan shares his views ahead of the new Championship season.

1. Your name and Club Supported

Jack Gaughan - Blackpool

2. Your League Position last season

16th

3. Your Prediction For this Season's Position Finish

13th

4. Transfers In

Jason Euell
Billy Clarke

Expect 4 signings this week though.

5. Transfer Out

David Fox, Claus Jorgensen, Marlon Broomes, Jermaine Wright, Francesco Carratta, Stuart Green, Matty Kay.

6. Have you made enough signings for the new season? Are they the right signings?

Not as of yet, we'd be completely stuck if we went into the season with this current crop. However, this week should see major signings at Bloomfield Road which should see us survive against the odds once again.

7. What are the expectations amongst the fans for this year?

Progress - so the South stand to be finished and the team to finish above 16th.

8. Key player(s)

Keith Southern, Charlie Adam and probably a new striker!

9. Your thoughts ahead of the new Championship campaign, are you confident or worried going into the new season? How do you think your year will pan out?

I was worried last week, but after President Valeri Belokon has pledged to pump money into the playing squad, I'm looking forward to getting started now. Ian Holloway has fresh new plans as to how we should play; it'll definitely be exciting!

10. Predict the Top 2 and Play-off winner and the 3 clubs to go down

Top 2: Reading, Sheffield United.

Playoff winner: Boro.

Down: Scunny, Plymouth, Barnsley.

Thanks to Jack Gaughan for answering our questions.
