The Blower's Daughter

The Blower's Daughter - One of my favourite songs, also features in one of my favourite films "Closer" featuring Jude Law, Natalie Portman, Julia Roberts and Clive Owen.

...Oh, did I say that I loathe you?

Did I say that I want to leave it all behind?

I can't take my mind off of you...

Congratulations Paul Ince...

Paul Ince has today been named the first black English manager of a premiership side (the only other 2 managers of premiership sides Jean Tigana of Fulham and Ruud Gullit of Chelsea, weren't 'English'). Considering that probably about 20% of the players in the premiership are black, in my opinion Ince's appointment is long overdue.

Ince's appointment brings to 4 the number of ex Alex Ferguson players currently managing teams in the top division (Steve Bruce, Roy Keane and Mark Hughes are the other 3). If we were to include ex Fergie deputies like Steve Mclaren, then ole Fergie has probably been single handedly responsible for training half of the English Premiership managers. LOL!

Anyway Congratulations Ince (the Guv'nor)! Lets hope you get a fair chance to prove yourself at Blackburn.
