Paul Ince: Relieved to be safe thanks to last-minute winner

Paul Ince: Relieved to be safe thanks to last-minute winner

Ludovic Sylvestre's injury-time strike sealed three points and made certain that the Seasiders cannot be relegated.

Gary Taylor-Fletcher's 18th minute goal had been cancelled out by Ram Ben Davies, with Blackpool missing a penalty through Tom Ince when they were leading 1-0.

Ince senior said: "I'm glad this fantastic club has managed to stay in the Championship and we can go forward next year.

"I'm a bit gutted that it's taken us this long to salvage where we are going to be.

"You want to be proactive rather than reactive in your planning but we've had to wait until the second-last game to be safe.

"Now I will sit down with the chairman and start getting some targets. We do need fresh faces.

"I don't want to dismantle the whole team, we have a fantastic core here and spirit, but I just want to add to it."

As for his son's penalty miss, he added: "I'd expect him to score, so he'll be getting no pocket money this week!

"Normally he scores but it just hit the inside of the post and we know how precarious a one-nil lead can be."

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.
