KARL Oyston has accused some of Blackpool’s Championship rivals of thinking they are Chelsea.

The Pool chairman has pointed the finger at clubs who have overspent so far this summer chasing their Premier League dream.

Oyston said: “It will be an interesting season. The Championship will be totally different to the one we left.

“Some of the clubs are acting like they are Chelsea this summer and others are acting sensibly. Our hopes are high for the season.”

The Pool chief was quick to play down talk of this being a particularly important season following relegation.

“I think every season is a big season for one reason or another,” he added.

“But I think it’s important that we manage our expectations well, and that we support the team and the manager and don’t burden them too much with expectations.

“We will always get 100 per cent commitment.”
