Town Again Linked With Tilt Bid
Friday, 6th Jul 2018 17:12
Town are again reported to have made an offer for Blackpool central defender Curtis Tilt.
The Blues were previously said to have made a bid for the 26-year-old a fortnight ago and now Sky Sports are reporting what’s presumably a renewed approach.
At the time of the first link, Town were said to be hoping to steal a march on a number of other clubs also keen on Tilt, including Reading, QPR and Portsmouth.
Walsall-born Tilt played in non-league for Halesowen Town, Hednesford Town, AFC Telford Town, Wrexham and Forest Green Rovers (loan) before joining the Tangerines last summer. He made 45 starts for the League One side in 2017/18, scoring once.
Another senior centre-half is very much on Paul Hurst’s summer wish-list with Adam Webster having departed for Bristol City and Tilt would appear to be very much the favourite to replace the former Pompey man in the Blues' backline.

Show ME, How You Do That Trick by Mullet
“It’s worth remembering the Championship is a really different prospect today, compared to when I invested 10 years ago.”
New Man, New Hope by SpiritOfJohn
As an occasional poet of the third rate variety, I have been scratching around for a few weeks trying to think of a rhyme or song to fit our new manager. Paul Hurst is hardly a name to get the creative juices overflowing, which is due to its no-nonsense shortage of syllables rather than his achievements in the beautiful game.
End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
