Agreed if he was fined they must be also fined or it will be just stupid

THe difference was Mccarthy put out a weak squad because he knew he was going to lose. Blackpool still put out a decent side

That's not a valid excuse they also made 10 changes so they should be fined

It is a shame when a manager decides to change his team theres a chance he could be fined. I believe the manager should be allowed to choose the best options

sometimes you have to put a weaker team if you play in a lot of competitions but Blackpool play only in the league once a week no excuses
