Seasiders Snap Up Phillips

Seasiders Snap Up Phillips

It`s been confirmed that striker Kevin Phillips has indeed joined Blackpool after agreeing a one year deal with the club.

The 37 year old also has an option written in for another year and will come up against Blues next season as both the Seasiders and Blues will be fighting it out for promotion back to the Premier League.

The former Watford, Sunderland, Southampton, Aston Villa and West Brom forward has joined the Seasiders in Portugal for their pre-season training camp.

He told the club's official website: 'I did a fair bit of work last year for Sky television watching Blackpool when I was commentating.

'Like everyone else in the country, I enjoyed watching Blackpool play and creating chances. It was exciting to watch and Ian Holloway is an infectious manager. That was certainly a major factor in me wanting to join Blackpool.

'I've scored many goals in my career and I still believe I've got many in me. Hopefully I can get on the end of a few of those chances that we create.'

Not in the slightest bit sorry that he has gone, he did bugger all last season and he is way past it at 37. Blackpool are welcome to him, they have the rest of the donkies

Marky he would still get 20 goals in the championship given the service which your club massively failed to do last season and thats why you got relegated , if not for your keeper and 2 centre backs you would have gone down by feb !!!
