Blackpool are set to sack boss Paul Ince – and make veteran skipper Barry Ferguson their new player-manager.

Ince’s relationship with chairman Karl Oyston is at an all-time low because of bad results and the future of his son, Tom.

Now Ince, who refused to meet the media after the defeat to Barnsley, is poised to be chopped and replaced internally.

Ferguson – a former Scotland captain – is a respected voice in the dressing room and will be asked to take charge with coach Steve Thompson.

It will be an ironic twist as Ferguson was banished on loan by Oyston last season and only brought back during Ince’s reign. Ince and assistant Alex Rae both look set to go as the Seasiders try to halt their slide.

Interesting story if true. Definitely think Barry would become a good manager; a good leader and great tactical understanding of the game.

If true I think Barry would maybe keep Alex Rae on. Good club to get for a first time appointment.

Blackpool started the season well and looked as though they would be up there amongst the front runners come the end of the season

then their form has totally nose dived. I think they have lost 9 of their last 10 games

I do like their shirts though :7325:

Ince is a dick head. No doubt after a couple of months he'll come out moaning about Black guys not getting chances as managers.

Hope if Barry takes over he does well.

I have this odd feeling bf will be back managing at rangers one day with jig as his assistant

not a good first career move. If he wants to go far in football management, I wouldn't be doing business with Karl Oyston.

Very much a poisoned chalice that job, like Davie Weir at Sheffield United. There'll be no money avaliable, and big expectations of a squad with one or two quality players (and Thomas Ince is off to Swansea), would mean its unlikely to end well
