Well Blackpool surprised a few people in the Prem last season - myself included - and it looks as if they have learnt from the experience. True, they haven't scored yet, although Phillips smacked a fantastic shot against the post - but the quality of their football has been an eye opener.
I remember their performance at Spurs last season when, until very late in the game, they held a goal lead and what impressed me at the time was how they passed the ball, even though they had their backs against the wall. Where most teams in that situation hoof it up the pitch, Blackpool passed the ball out of defence, playing triangles and moving off the ball impressively.
And their passing and movement during the last 25 minutes of the first half here was definitely Premiership quality. There is always a man available for a pass and it has taken a number of last ditch interceptions and blocks to prevent them from creating a blue ribbon opportunity. If they keep playing like that in the second half, I would fancy them to score a couple.
But the frailties remain at the back, particularly down their right flank. Don't be surprised if Hull snatch a goal. Their failure to create a nailed on chance thus far suggests they will not be a major force this season.
