E-T feels at home in Blackpool

The Arsenal rookie, 18, has joined the Seasiders on an initial one-month loan and is claiming the goal that was credited to Alex Baptiste as his own. Ian Holloway's men twice fought back to claim a point and Emmanuel-Thomas says it was he who headed Neal Eardley's corner into the net for his side's first equaliser. Emmanuel-Thomas said: "Alex Baptiste did try to nick it off me in the changing room after but he was only joking - he knows it was definitely my goal. "I was very happy when the manager selected me in the team and hopefully I will be in a lot more starting 11s for the rest of my time here. "This is my first time out on loan so it is a great experience for me and I am enjoying it."
