Tom Ince: Hailed fans after scooping awards

Tom Ince: Hailed fans after scooping awards

Ince was a shining light in an otherwise disappointing season for the Seasiders, who struggled to make an impact in a competitive Championship despite a strong start to the campaign. He bagged 18 goals to ensure Blackpool were never really threatened by relegation.

The player left Sunday's awards night with five prizes - Young Player of the Year and Player of the Year, both voted for by the fans, Blackpool Gazette Player of the Year, Players' Player of the Year and the John Schofield memorial trophy (Player of the Year).

Ince, 21, was humbled to receive so many accolades but insisted he was simply doing his job and rewarding the fans for their support.

"I have to say a big thank you to all the Gazette readers who voted for me. It means so much. I couldn't have done it without the amazing support I've had since I joined this club," he told the Blackpool Gazette.

"I play football for the fans. They pay the money and I feel I have to impress them, so to get so many votes from the people who matter is phenomenal. I have to offer a major, major thank you to all the fans."

Ludo Syvestre's injury-time volley against Derby County on the penultimate weekend won goal of the season but the night belonged to Ince, who said it was "a proud moment" to win five awards in a talented side.

"I've had a fairly good season and I always wanted to add goals to my game, and luckily I've been able to do that," Ince added.

"But it's not just about me, you have to look at players like Kirk Broadfoot, Alex Baptiste and Barry Ferguson - all these players could have easily won."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

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.
