There's a shame. Ince, who has never been forgiven down Green Street for appearing on the pitch in a Scum shirt before any transfer fee had been agreed, opened his Blackpool account with a defeat. Of course, Warnock versus Ince is a toss up in the tosser stakes as far as Hammers are concerned, but as I posted the day before yesterday, Old Big Gob is preferable to the self anointed guvnor.
Blackpool fans should be very worried. They are not clear of the drop yet and if Ince carries on his recent record as a manager, the Tangerine Dreamers could be in Division Three before they know it. As for Ince Junior, he is now in an utterly invidious position. How can he be one be of the lads when his Dad is managing the club? Frank Lampard Junior became the focus of the fans' ire when it was alleged that nepotism was behind his regular selection and, as promising as the young Ince is, he is unlikely to ever be as good as Fat Frank.
It's a really odd appointment and West Ham fans up and down the land will now be looking for Blackpool's results, hoping they lose every game. Shame. We used to like them, despite that four goal hammering in the Cup when Moore and Best went out boozing on the eve of the game.
