Rival watch: Chaos at Blackpool ahead of Pompey visit
Blackpool appear to be a club again inÂ chaos ahead of Pompey's visit to Bloomfield Road tomorrow.
Monday saw the departure of boss GaryÂ Bowyer, just one game into the season after the Tangerines' 0-0 opening-day draw atÂ Wycombe.
BowyerÂ is believed to have become disillusioned with the continuing mess behind the scenes, after guiding the club into League One and a 12th-placed finish last term.
Fourteen players left the club in the summer forcing a huge rebuilding job, with 13 players arriving.
The likes of KyleÂ Vassell, Clark Robertson and KelvinÂ MellorÂ are among those to have moved on.
DonervonÂ Daniels joined the club on deadline to become the latest face through the door this summer.
Others to arrive include JohnÂ O'Sullivan, Chris Taylor, Marc Bola, JosephÂ DodooÂ and Michael Nottingham.
Pompey's travelling faithfulÂ are invited to join a protest by Blackpool supporters before the game, asÂ the long-suffering fans' anger grows amid the continuing disarray.
Their ire is aimed at owner OwenÂ Oyston, who along with son Karl was found guilty by the high court last year ofÂ 'illegitimate stripping' of the club, with Â£26.77m paid to companies they owned.
The protest will take place outside the main entrance at the ground's West Stand from 2pm.
Bowyer'sÂ assistant, TerryÂ McPhillipsÂ takes charge of the team for Pompey's visit.
Pompey won 3-2 at Bloomfield Road last November with Ben Close and a BrettÂ PitmanÂ double doing the damage.
Of the starting 18-man squad that day, seven remain at Blackpool.
