Player-manager Ferguson is looking to recruit this January, stating he has a shortlist "as long as his arm" of potential targets.

The former Rangers player took over as interim manager following Paul Ince's sacking at the beginning of the month.

Blackpool have struggled with form in the Championship, with their last win coming in November against Sheffield Wednesday.

With Thomas Ince looking like he will leave the club, the Seasiders would be looking at squad of just 20 if they fail to make some transfers before the deadline.

Ferguson told the Blackpool Gazette: "I have my targets and it's a question of if we can get them now.

"I have a list as long as my arm which I've given to the chairman. He knows what I need here. I don't know if we can get them over the line but we'll try.

"It's not just a couple of players we need. It's obvious we need a few players in. We need to speak to the chairman and see which way that goes."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
