  1. It’s all over for Birmingham.

    West Ham vs Blackpool should be a good game. West Ham will be favorites no doubt. Let’s hope for a cracker.

  2. Blackpool through 3-2 on aggregate. They looked like the ‘Pool of 2 years ago who couldn’t hold leads and it got them relegated.Hopefully they can beat West Ham and go back up.
