Ince wants to bolster squad

Paul Ince: The Blackpool boss says his squad is stretched just over a week into

Ince's side boast a 100 per cent record after winning both their opening Championship fixtures, but the Tangerines boss is keen to give himself more options to choose from.

Ricardo Fuller, a free agent after leaving Charlton at the end of last season, is reportedly close to agreeing a deal that would see the Jamaican striker move to Bloomfield Road.

Winger Tom Ince, frequently linked with a move to the Premier League, has one more match of a two-game suspension to serve for making an offensive gesture to a match official during last week's Capital One Cup defeat to Preston.

The Blackpool boss has a number of injuries as well as suspensions to contend with, and admits that his resources were stretched during Blackpool's 1-0 win over Barnsley last weekend.

"We know we are short of numbers and you really saw that on Saturday," said Ince.

"We are trying to get players in. The phone hasn't stopped and won't do until we can get a squad in place."

Strikers Michael Chopra and Steven Davies have arrived at Blackpool during the current window, while Liverpool defender Jack Robinson is on a season-long loan.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
