Today we have the first leg of the nPower Championship Playoff semi-final between former Premier League sides Blackpool and Birmingham City kicking off at 2:45pm ET/7:45pm BST (available live in the United States on FOXSoccer2Go and FOX Soccer Plus).
Since we had such a good reception for yesterday’s match between Cardiff City and West Ham United, we’ve decided to post an open thread so you, the readers, can add your rants, raves, questions and observations about the match.
If you haven’t had a chance to watch Blackpool or Birmingham since last season in the Premier League, you’ll see many familiar faces on both squads as well as two managers who are quite different but respected in many ways — Ian Holloway and Chris Hughton.
