During the 2010-11 Premier League season, Blackpool emerged as a free-flowing attacking side that scored plenty of goals but unfortunately let more goals in, which was ultimately their downfall and the major reason why the club was relegated in May 2011.

Just three years later, the club is in a financial quagmire.
