Snapshot: Oystons’ Decision To Remove Statue Backfires As Blackpool Fans Protest In Middle Of Pitch…

By Chris Wright


After seeing their plans to protest around Stan Mortensen’s statue nixed after it was mysteriously removed by the club’s much-maligned owners,  the Blackpool fans held up the start of the second half during their final fixture against Huddersfield Town after sourcing themselves a secondary base of operations.

Instead of grouping around the statue’s empty plinth to voice their ire, the Blackpool fans protested en masse in the middle of the Bloomfield Road pitch instead…

Normally we wouldn’t condone such behaviour, but we’re more than willing to make an exception here given the circumstances.

    Trust the BBC to throw in a bit of humour to the quite dire situation Blackpool fans find themselves in:

    “The scene soon became somewhat farcical, as one fan made their way onto the pitch to join the protest on a mobility scooter.”
