Goals in the 11th and 53rd minute set the striker up for a hat-trick but Clough sent on Nathan Tyson for the last 24 minutes - much to Robinson's chagrin.

"He was on a hat-trick so he wasn't exactly chuffed about it," said Clough.

"But he had been carrying a bit of a strain in training and with a game here against Barnsley on Tuesday it made sense to bring him off.

"If he's disappointed about it, he can score a hat-trick against them.

"It was the complete performance, exhilarating. We did everything right to take advantage of a difficult situation for Blackpool."

m a big Rafa fan, but when he substitutes Ronaldo after 60 minutes of his first game, which Real draw 1-1, I don't see the Real fans being patient. He'll be gone before October is out.
