Paul Ince: Hoping to see key men pen new deals before dipping into the transfer

With the Seasiders having moved on to 55 points for the season, they would appear to have laid any lingering relegation fears to rest.

That means Ince can now turn his attention to the summer, with targets in the process of being drawn up and new deals set to be offered to those who will be out of contract.

Ince told the Blackpool Gazette: "I've had a couple of discussions. Not so much with the players - as if you talk to two or three players then the others will wonder why I've not spoken to them.

"But I've sat down with the chairman and spoken about what I'd like to do and when we intend to call the players in.

"Three of four weeks ago we couldn't have dreamt of talking about these things, but now we can, a little.

"It's going to be a rebuild, but it's not a major one. When I look at the core of the team, I'm very happy.

"It won't be a major operation on the team, but we want to move forward.

"There's at least four or five players I want to bring in. But I'm more than happy with what I've got here."

et again Barcelona try to convince the world that they only play the most virtuous of football. I've never seen a team so willing and able to dish out lumps but feel so self-righteous that no opposition player should ever have the audacity to tackle them.

It's an afternoon Mailbox that offers the reaction to the reaction, with a defence for Diego Costa offered, and Balotelli mooted to move to QPR. Plus a silly idea about the Mails...
