'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ince's Dad's Tangerine Army.

It seems everyone except, well, including the Pope have been linked with the Blackpool job in the five weeks since the weird looking bloke with a whining voice departed to take the helm at the shipwreck that is Blackburn Rovers.

Yet it seems we are going to appoint someone who has spent most of the season in the stands at Bloomfield Road. Like a scene from 'The Alchemist', it seems as though Karl Oyston has found his man right under his nose in Paul Ince.

The appointment could be a win/ win. Paul is currently undertaking his Pro Licence, clearly keen to return the the management fray and rebuild a reputation that started well with Mansfield and MK Dons, before hitting the buffers with Blackburn and latterly Notts County.

But time out after a bad gig has worked for us before. What is more, the Chairman can be rest assured Ince knows the strengths and weaknesses of many of the squad, having watched them week in and week out over recent months.

Of course, the Oyston wheels move slowly, a week of talks is yet to conclude, and are set to go into today and tomorrow as regards to staff and the finer details.

It is more likely that there will be a reprieve for the back room staff that Karl Oyston is keen to retain who would have had to make way to accommodate Owen Coyle.

So, in the usual, not straightforward, Blackpool way, a new manager looks to have finally 'arrived'. We all hope the winning mindset if Ince's playing career and early managerial career are re discovered
