Have been watching more and more of Blackpool ever since Seamus Coleman went on loan there. Like Everton, Blackpool have played some lovely stuff in the last few months and have a cracking manager who people can't help but like. I'll be supporting Blackpool all the way tomorrow and I fancy Coleman to get the winner!!! We'll want him back next season though, he will be an excellent player over the coming seasons for Everton and RoI.

If Cardiff get into the prem then you might as well invite Celtic and Rangers down - hey, how about bringing in Barca, Real Madrid, Inter, AC, Lyon, Bayern, Benfica etc. Sorry my Welsh Cousins, its an english prem so big up the Blackpool!!

To me it looks as if this game is financially more important to the Bluebirds than the Tangerines. Is this another Portsmouth in waiting? if so Blackpool (on the face of it a properly run club) should be promoted by default as we do not want to see another Premiership club applying for administration (although this may probably happen again). There should be a way that clubs are checked for financial stability prior to their 'right' of being in the play off final. Whats to say that Cardiff would not spend beyond their means in the Premiership as they have done in the Championship?

I for one wish Blackpool the best of luck. It would be too sorry a day if Mr Ridsdale got back into the premier League. He nearly finished both us and Barnsley.

Ive watched both sides play in each of their two games against their prior opponents, Blackpool look by far the more convincing side to initiate any demolition of a team, as for Mr Matthews post???! remember Blackpool mullered Notts Forest under pressure and I wouldnt be suprised if they conjured up something of a similar sort come the wembley showdown. Cardiff on the other hand, half decent squad, but its not like they breezed past leicester city with flying colours is it now?! Luckily they had the winning lottery ticket when it came down to penalties. I wish both teams the best of luck....but Blackpool in the premier league? Would be fantastic to see!

I'm affraid you're all wrong so far.Cardiff have too much strength and depth and will beat Blackpool with ease.My prediction,a 3-0 win for the Bluebirds!

I can't believe it, the biggest game of my life! I appreciate all the optimism but I prefer to expect the worse. However I will be flying my Tangerine flag high on Saturday and looking forward to a season in the top flight.

seamus coleman, what a man, honest and hard working, sadly missed from the showgrounds, fantastic to see him doing so well, a great sligo rovers player, flying the flag for us across the pond. Great things to come in the future.....

Good luck Blackpool from a Tigers fan. Hope Big Ben Burgess comes off the bench to score the winner for you.

Blackpool in the Premier League sounds amazing! The buzz around the Lancashire town is incredible and to come this far is already a sensational achievement! It is almost crazy to think that Blackpool supporters could be disappointed on Saturday afternoon if they don't manage one of the most unbelieveable promotions in history! Figners crossed that there is a fantsy ending to this fairytale season!
