Ince Vows To Carry On

Ince Vows To Carry On

Despite a crushing 3-0 defeat at Wigan Athletic on Saturday (a defeat that adds to the pressure on Paul Ince) the Blackburn Rovers manager has vowed to fight on.

A sixth successive defeat in what was a near must win match for Rovers leaves Ince in deep trouble, with his job very much on the line not to mention our own Premier League future!!! Incey will carry on fighting though.

Ince told the BBC: "There is no point feeling sorry for yourself, there is no point in the players feeling sorry for themselves, they have just got to keep believing.

"It is easier said than done when you are not winning games and you perform like we did in the first 45 minutes, which was very disappointing.

"We felt we could not only get something out of the game but win it. Everyone was buzzing in the changing room and then with 12 minutes gone we are 2-0 down and the game was gone. What can you do?

"It is no good improving in the second half. It doesn't do anything.

"I'm very disappointed with the players. We are hurting at this moment in time
."

However, Incey did back the travelling fans and says that he understands their frustrations.

He added: "We let our fans down. Obviously they are going to voice their frustration as anyone would - and rightly so because we let them down today. They are going to voice their opinion."

I think that fat lady has well and truly warmed up her voice and the singing will start sometime this week, if Incey makes it through until our next match then that is ALL he will get!!!

I'll carry on backing Ince but time REALLY is running out for him (well I basically think it is up!) and IF we are going to make a change of manager we need to do it before (or during) the January transfer window so players can be signed. If we stick with Ince then he MUST be backed in this transfer window, but I'm not sure he will even be here come then, and as sad as I am to say it I think it would probably be best that he isn't.

Ince needs to be sacked immediately to give us a fighting chance!! We're 5 points from safety as it stands, that gap will widen as long as he remains in charge.

Yeah i reckon Stoke will beat us at the weekend just because they have a little confidence and really want to play.

The game against Stoke this weekend really is last chance saloon, nothing but a win is required!!! If Paul Ince lasts that long? I can't see the board giving him any more time. We must remember football isn't about football any more, it's all about money? and our worth to the owners is going down rapidly??

but why WOULD we give him yet more time if it's about the football?

Because the board may feel that Ince is a better option than anyone else to turn the club around... we might not think it but they might.

He needs to go NOW. If he stays another month or two and is then sacked it will be too late for anyone to save the club. And it will hurt this club more than him or John Williams. If we are relegated and he is sacked then it is back to the lower leagues for Ince for a few seasons until people forget about this (like Curbs, big Sam and Hodgson) and he is given a job in the premiership again while we will be stuck in the championship. If we go down this year it could be a long time before we will be back with the likes of QPR, Wolves and others spending 10 or 15 million on players. John Williams would get a lot more respect if he just came out and said he made a mistake giving Ince the job. I for one would find it a lot easier to forgive you John for making a mistake rather than for getting this team relegated. Do the right thing!

Another point i would like to make is that over all the interviews he has done over the last few months he has never admitted that he has made any mistakes in any games. Every goal or every missed chance or every strayed pass is the players fault. I know the players have to take some responsibility for their individual mistakes but if they are playing out of position or are not making the right runs and the tactics are wrong then surely this is the managers fault. How can Ince blaming the players for his failings be good for team morale. Also the fact that we have the same defense as last season and have as bad a goal difference as we do now then how has he not got rid of Winterburn and asked Ryan and co just to go back to how they were playing last season.

Ince should follow Keane's example and walk away, he cannot turn things around, if he could have he would have done so by now. Eleven games without a win speaks for itself, it equals our worst ever run! Ince walk away and save what little is left of you reputation!!

I think JW should be cut a lot of slack. Everyone makes mistakes, he hasnt made many before that, the appointments of Hughes and Souness had a lot to do with him and he got the best out of both of them and got the right manager for our needs atthe time. I think he has got this one wrong but the chances of him admitting it in public is slim.
