Allsop swaps seaside towns

Yesterday, AFCB broke the news that Ryan Allsop would be on his way to League One side Blackpool for a season-long loan. It represents a good chance for Allsop to get his playing career back in the swing of things with match after match situation and should be just what he needs at this stage of his development.
Allsop takes a step forward in his career by taking a loan at Blackpool.
The number of keepers at AFCB was making things crowded, and it is not such a big surprise that Allsop is the player that has headed out on loan with his more limited experience to the likes of Boruc, Begovic and Federici. He has to make a name for himself and while he will be doing that away from Bournemouth, he should start to get that team feeling and respect that he no doubt craves for making saves week after week.

Blackpool won promotion to League One via the play-offs and they will have to first ensure they are competitive in their new league. Allsop will need to exude some confidence and show his teammates that he can be relied upon. Eddie Howe has always been supportive of Allsop and has kept him when it would have been simple for Allsop to have been left behind as the club grew in stature. Allsop has a long way to go to make it as the number one at Dean Court, but he has been doing enough right over the years to earn his place in various squads and I hope he really plays well.


Having made his Premier League debut against Everton the season before last, and getting a full game against Leicester City last season, Allsop should be looking forward to running out in League One. It should be a place where he can excel and hopefully save a few penalties or be man of the match a few times.

Keeping is a specialist position and is not perfected overnight, but Allsop has been persistent and now he has an opportunity to really shine again, so I think Blackpool is a good place for him to go and play football. Give it your best Rockie!
