Paul Ince: Blackpool boss has moved to quell rumours over his future

The Seasiders reportedly turned down an offer of resignation from Ince on Friday, with the club moving to stress he remains in charge.

Blackpool are currently at a training camp in Portugal and Ince told the club's website that he is in constant discussion with chairman Karl Oyston regarding strengthening their squad.

"We're going to have to try and bring in seven or eight players in the space of three weeks and try and get them used to the way we're playing," said Ince.

"It will take time, we just have to get on with it. I want to be competitive, I want a competitive team and I want to go into every game next year thinking we've got a chance of winning.

"Therefore, because we're short on numbers, you can't just jump to anyone that's free and that wants to come to Blackpool.

"The chairman understands where I'm at with it, and my relationship with the chairman is fantastic, second to none. One on one we get on really great.

"As a manager you have different opinions. We agree on most things but we'll never agree on everything.

"Some of the things he thinks are right, I think are wrong and probably vice-versa. That's part of the relationship you have with people, you have to put your views across and ultimately he makes the final decision."

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.
