After West Ham's fairly comfortable first leg win yesterday, the attention of the Championship turns to Blackpool and Birmingham City today as they square off at Bloomfield Road in the first leg of their semi-final. I don't have much to say about this because I don't really know the teams that well, but I know that Birmingham is a drab, ugly city (seriously, ugh) and I had a lot of fun the two times I've been to Blackpool, so go Blackpool!
It all starts at 7.30PM BT/11.30AM PT/2.30PM ET, and it's on Fox Soccer Plus and Fox Soccer 2Go in case you don't want to sit in a dark room with your eyes closed and imagine how it'll all play out, or recreate the match with puppets or something.
