Is Blackpool’s Brett Ormerod The Scariest Man In Football? Wigan V Tangerines In Photos

IS Blackpool footballer Brett Ormerod the scariest man in the Premier League? In their top flight debut, The Tangerines ran out 4-0 winners over mighty Wigan.

Ormerod grimaced for joy. Should Blackpool lose, he might grimace with pain.

As for the match, hats off to Blackpool on a great win.

But Blackpool v Wigan belies the myth that the Premier League is the most competitive league in the world. It isn’t. The league is split in three parts: the top six teams who have loadsa money – in the case of Manchester City, the wealth is oil-rich Abu Dhabi’s GDP – the middle-ranking also rans who save it for the big Six games,  and the lovable losers for whom the season is one long battle against being relegated to the Championship.

But for some there is a short-lived romance. Blackpool are second in the table. And fans can dream…
