Paul Ince: Looking to put his stamp on the team

The Seasiders secured their Championship status for next season with a last-gasp 2-1 win over Derby last Saturday and Ince is already keen to get his preparations in motion ahead of the final-day trip to Bolton.

Saturday's match-winner Ludo Sylvestre, captain Alex Baptiste and long-serving forward Gary Taylor-Fletcher head a list of nine players able to walk away from Bloomfield Road for free this summer in the absence of new deals being agreed.

A legacy of Ian Holloway's heavy recruitment during his Bloomfield Road tenure means Ince is also faced with a close season spent streamlining squad numbers.

"It going to be a horrible week for me," he told the Blackpool Gazette. "I'll have to tell some people that I don't want them and give them the chance to move on.

"But also it's a great week as I can build a club now. When you come into a club in the situation we were, it's hard. Now we are safe I can sit down and get the core players sorted.

"Football's football, there will be players coming and going. But there's not a lot to change here. I don't want to dismantle the whole team.

"We have a great core here, and I want to keep them here and build around it."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
