Blackpool fans reply to Arsenal loanee Dan Ballard's tweet
A number of Blackpool fans have taken to Twitter to reply to Daniel Ballard after the Arsenal loanee produced an outstanding display in the first-leg of their play-off semi-final.
Neil Critchley’s men have seemingly put one foot in the final after a 3-0 win at Oxford. Ellis Simms was the star of the show with two goals. But another Premier League loanee was lauded for his own display for the Tangerines.
Ballard has been hugely impressive during his year at Bloomfield Road. He has also impressed supporters while on international duty with Northern Ireland this season.
And he produced another colossal display on Tuesday as Blackpool took a giant leap towards Wembley.
As shown by Whoscored, he won four aerial duels and produced one key pass from the back. And Blackpool continued their outrageous record when Ballard is in their starting lineup.
In his last eight appearances, Critchley’s men have kept six clean sheets and they have conceded just two goals in that run. In total, he has helped the club to 14 clean sheets over the course of the campaign.
And that is why many Blackpool fans were quick to laud the Arsenal man as he took to social media in the wake of Tuesday’s win.
Many clearly hope that an agreement can be reached with the Gunners that sees Ballard extend his stay in some capacity beyond this season.
With that in mind, here is how some of the fans responded to his tweet on the win…
Fancy another season loan Dan 😉
