Tangerine’s wonder kid (Video)

Blackpool FC are again looking to push into the play-offs and possibly better in the Championship this year. They have a good squad of players who are use to playing with one another. However there is one player who is a shining light for the Tangerines. Thomas Ince.

Son of former United and Liverpool player Paul Ince, Thomas comes from a Footballing family background. He signed for Liverpool as a youth player in 2008. He never really got much of a chance for the Reds and therefore he was sent out on loan.

Ince had a brief spell at Notts County and here he scored his first senior goal in a 2-0 win against MK Dons. On his return to Liverpool he was eventually sold to Blackpool and he arrived on an initial two year contract.

Since Ince has been at Blackpool he has been a superb winger especially going forward. He scored his first goal in a Tangerine shirt when he scored a brace in a 2-1 win against Doncaster. He followed this up by scoring an equaliser in the play-off final against West Ham.

Thomas Ince has unbelievable skill and pace on the ball. He has the ability to glide past players at ease and he can also hit the goal with that thunderous right foot he has. If Ince junior can keep this up for another couple of years he may be regarded as highly as his father was when he was in the peak of his career.

At the drop of a shoulder Thomas Ince can make a defence look very foolish, he has the arrogance needed to be a success at the top. When watching him take defenders on he remains me of a young Cristiano Ronaldo only without all the flicks and step overs he has and uses.

This season will prove to be a big season for Ince. He is starting to mature as a player and if he can stay injury free he could help guide Blackpool back to the top flight of English football.
