Blackpool are in the Premier League, and all fans will be hoping they play them away on the Bank Holiday. Well, not those Arsenal fans with second homes in Tuscany, nor the Chelsea fans who like to be no more than 200ft from a Pret A Manger, and not those who have ever been to Blackpool before to revisit their father’s old haunts on an away day from Leeds (don’t ask). But everyone else will be hoping.

Blackpool may well pull off a few shock results next season. But there will no bigger shock than them arriving among the elite. This was their finest hour and a half for decades. Blackpool fans, enjoy. Eat yer heart out Inter Milan – this really was huge.

If you were there – you might well be here:
