Thomas Ince: Used to take penalties against Kasper Schmeichel

Thomas Ince: Used to take penalties against Kasper Schmeichel

The Seasiders' England Under-21 international kept his cool in the 90th minute to level in a 2-2 draw against the Foxes at Bloomfield Road on Saturday in a clash between two of the Sky Bet Championship's early pace-setters.

The Blackpool goalscorer and Leicester stopper share the distinction of having famous fathers in the game - the former's dad is current Blackpool manager Paul Ince, who was a Manchester United team-mate of keeper Peter Schmeichel.

Their children used to practice on the pitch at Old Trafford on the younger days which, Thomas Ince revealed, made Saturday's spot-kick all the more familiar.

"Our dads both played for Man United, so it was strange for us to be on the field together on Saturday," he told the Blackpool Gazette.

"We used to play at Old Trafford after the games, on the pitch and in the lounges.

"He was always in goal, so it's not the first penalty I've taken against him.

"I've known Kasper for years now and when I stepped up he was playing mind-games with me.

"Still the same outcome - I always score!"

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.
