Paul Ince: Still waiting for first win at Blackpool

Chris Wood's missed penalty for the visitors ensured Ince got off the mark in the wake of defeat to Leeds in his opening game.

He said: "It's going to take probably two or three weeks to assess the whole situation and if we can do that and keep winning games it makes things easier.

"We do need a few players in just to freshen things up. The players have been fantastic since I got here but it's been a difficult couple of months for them.

"It is what it is, it's been like that for ages, it hasn't changed but you have to be ready - it's not all about pretty football.

"I thought we thoroughly deserved a point - it was our first clean sheet for ages. It is a start, it was disappointing against Leeds because I thought we should have won that game.

"I think results can be deceiving. What I didn't want to do was lose another one. Even though we didn't get the win, we enjoyed the game."

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
