Blues Amongst Clubs Linked With Blackpool Defender
Tuesday, 19th Mar 2013 12:26
Town are one of a number of clubs reported to be eyeing Blackpool defender Kirk Broadfoot, who is out of contract at the end of the season. The Blues, who were previously linked with the 28-year-old in August, Blackburn, Leeds and Nottingham Forest are all said to be interested in the Scottish international.
Broadfoot, who is 6ft 3in tall, was a youth player at Hibernian but started his senior career with St Mirren where he made more than 150 appearances in five years before moving on to Rangers on a Bosman free transfer in the summer of 2007.
Capped four times at full level by Scotland, scoring once, in addition to appearances at U21 and B levels, Irvine-born Broadfoot made 106 starts and 12 sub appearances for Rangers, scoring once during his five years with the Glasgow club. He joined Blackpool last summer.
Broadfoot, who won three Scottish titles and a League Cup while at Ibrox, began his Seasiders career playing at right-back but more recently has been at centre-half. He has made 26 Blackpool starts, scoring two goals.
Speaking last week, he said he would be interested in agreeing new terms at Bloomfield Road: “I’ve enjoyed it here, I don’t see why things can’t be sorted out, so here’s hoping.
“Who knows what’s round the corner, we need to get safe first before we start talking about the future.”

"Some people can f**k off," was mouthed right out of our very own small corner of Yorkshire. A sentiment as Yorkshire as the tea and a certain type of famously advertised bread.
So This is Me ... by RaymondovicBlue
OK, so this is me – 50 years old, living in Poole, Dorset and only getting to three games this season (hey, that’s 50% on last year!). Do I have a right to join in the discussions here, or should I keep quiet and listen to the experts?
Pig Tales - An Old Story Brought Bang Up to Date by roysboys
Once Upon a Time, not very long ago, not far away, there was country town with a problem, a big problem. The Town was called PigSwich and in the town there was a wonderful stydium in PigMan Road and no matter how well the locals built their stydium it kept getting battered by the local wolves who kicked balls at it and knocked it down.
Are English Football Clubs Becoming Just Global Consumer Brands (And What Are the Implications)? by AndrewPC
Back in 2010/11 I spent quite a bit of time in SE Asia, particularly Malaysia. As an expat, a retreat to the many available sports bars provided great access to live Premier League football in the evening (the time difference to the UK meant that games start to be shown around 22:00 hours) plus the not unpleasant possibility of imbibing some brews.

I posted an item under the story headlined 'Taylor: Hewitt “Superb”' this morning and unbelievably I didn't receive an avalanche of negatives.
