Matt Phillips: Attracting interest, but Paul Ince is unaware of any bids

Speculation had suggested that QPR had put a £5million offer to their Championship rivals for Scotland international Phillips.

Ince, however, has moved to dismiss the rumours and is looking forward to seeing Phillips back in action at Bloomfield Road in the near future as he works his way back from a broken arm suffered early in pre-season.

He told The Gazette: "There's nothing in it, as far as I know.

"Matt Phillips has not even started training yet. I knew there was interest from some clubs a couple of weeks ago. But look at our squad. Unless they come in with a major bid, he's a Blackpool player.

"Unless the chairman has accepted a bid which I don't know about, which I doubt, then there's nothing in it. He's a Blackpool player and that's how it will stay.

"Matt's a massive loss for us at the moment. We are really missing his quality, and you can understand why he's being linked with clubs like QPR.

"At the moment, no-one has told me that QPR have bid, so he'll be staying with me until they do."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
