Paul Ince: All to play for in the battle to avoid relegation

Paul Ince: All to play for in the battle to avoid relegation

Ince reckoned the result was about right over the piece as Blackpool stretched their unbeaten run to five games, leaving them four points above the relegation zone.

"I think on the balance of play it could have gone either way," said Ince. "They got a chance right at the last minute but on the possession and stats we were by far the better side.

"At the end of the day we haven't got beat, it's another point and another building block before we face Brighton on Saturday.

"The fight to avoid relegation is madness. You'd hope it'd calm down a bit but it hasn't and it seems to be the teams below us who are picking up points against top teams.

"Anyone can beat anyone in this league, but since I've been playing football I've never seen a league as close as this. It'd be hard to take if anyone went down on 55 points.

"There are a lot of teams down there, and we need to do what we need to do to get some breathing space.

"But it's great, it's exciting and it was important not to lose this game - I said to the lads if you can't win it, don't lose it."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

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.
