Tom Ince: Linked with a return to Liverpool

Ince Jr has been heavily linked with a return to Liverpool, where he graduated from the youth set-up but failed to establish himself at senior level before joining the Seasiders in summer 2011.

His father is in no doubt that he is capable of making the grade in the top flight but feels the prospect of time spent on the bench at a big club may hinder the 20-year-old England Under-21 star's development.

"There's been a lot of press saying he's going to Liverpool," he told Sky Sports News. "Not at one time has he said Liverpool - not at one time has Thomas said he wants to leave Blackpool.

"I just feel that he's ready for the Premier League. Whether that means he's going to go in January, or it means he's going to go at the end of the season or the season after, who knows?

"I think he's ready to go and play in the Premier League but I don't want Thomas going to a Premier League club and not playing football because they will just stunt his development.

"Wherever he goes he has to have the chance of being involved and getting game-time.

"If you say Liverpool, you say Man United or you say Barcelona - I don't want him going to those clubs if he's not going to play football.

"For me, he might as well stay at Blackpool and keep playing week in and week out."

m only commenting on this (I don't care about Liverpool) because F365's twitter said I had call Matt Stanger a tw*t (which I don't agree with anyway) but I just wanted to be the first. Am I the first?

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
