Blackpool – Not the new Derby

During the summer, there were more than a few people suggesting that  Blackpool could be “the new Derby”. They’d scraped into the Play-off’s and then spent next-to-nothing over the summer; it didn’t bode well for a Premier League campaign. By ten-to-five on Saturday evening, on the back of just one result, many of the Rams’ 2007/8 records looked safe for another year. Here’s some stats:After 90 minutes of Premier League football, Blackpool had:

  • Won as many games as the Rams did all season.

    "One more and I've doubled Earnie's total"

  • Won more away games than the Rams did whilst matching the total number of away points for the season.
  • Reached 20% of the Rams total goals for the season ( and 50% of the Rams away goals total for the 2007/8 season).
  • Accumulated 27% of the Rams total points for the season.

If you have a calculator, you could work out how much of this was done by half-time!
