Time for Charlie Adam to move on from the Tangerine Dream

But as the temperatures soared at Wembley, Blackpool’s dream looked to be cutting up like the Wembley pitch, as Michael Chopra nipped in to give the bluebirds the lead. Cardiff then looked to take control of the game and started to build on their lead, but Blackpool have their modern day Sir Stan and up stepped Charlie Adam to smash in a 25 yard-free kick which seemed to lift Blackpool on to another level.
