He's started 3 games, one of which he was extremely impressive, how can anyone say whether or not he is ready etc? You don't know?

People are quick to right off players on this site - I spent the majority of the season backing Puncheon saying although a little frustrating at times, he has more quality then a lot of players in the squad, look at him now?

Tom Ince could be huge and you cannot judge someone on the base of 3 games.

Give the guy a chance ffs!


To be fair to the negative posters, he was not signed on as an investment. You cannot apply the Joniesta argument for this one. The club paid 1m and a hefty wage bill for the privilege of having him on loan for only FOURTEEN games. We pay an additional 1m if we stay up; that's a lot if he is only considered good enough for 3 games. You do not pay those sorts of monies for a loanee unless he is capable of hitting the ground running from the off and carrying on that form to the end. While you may say he has repaid the money with the baggies game alone, it is not difficult to have some sympathy for those who think 2m plus a hefty wage for just one decent game - did we not deserve more?

For my part, I hope we get the points we need quickly so Ince can play the final 3/4 games with little risk to the club's future; that he shines bright; and we sign a superb player on a permanent basis who goes on to be a club legend.


may I ask, how do we know what we paid for Ince and what 'hefty' wage he's on?

I'm not sure what silvertop is on about, he will be on the wage that was agreed in his contract with Blackpool, that's the rules. The rumours are that we paid a 1m loan fee and I've never heard anything about a additional 1m fee (paid to whom, I don't know)if we stay up. I did read that we are paying for his accommodation at Canary Wharf, which is fair enough.

I thought it was great getting him and hoped he would be used as an impact sub - to step up and fight a relegation battle in a higher league is a big ask - but he had the hype to go with it.

It hasn't worked out, yet.. but let's be honest, look at Bolaise, KG, Gayle and even Williams at the start of this season - he needs game time.

It's a great learning curve though - hopefully he will learn to talk when spoken to and say what is required - he often spook highly of himself and told the 'lads he expects to be booed at swansea' no sh*t sherlock.
He will hopefully learn to bulk up, earn his spot.

Having said that, he will probably go abroad


Maybe not for him, that he is NOT in the starting 11.
However TP has him on the Bench.
Its a team (squad) game.
And since the January Transfer Window our team has improved.
Give the lad a chance.
Only been on the pitch 5 times FFS.


I think the question being asked is - If he's this good, homes comes he's only as good as a seat on the bench?

Sorry to butt in a again. We need a squad of players to get us through to the end of the season, Ince is one of them.

I did read that we are paying for his accommodation at Canary Wharf, which is fair enough.


Have I accidentally walked into "Pedant's Corner"? Have you both missed the substantive point? Even if the additional 1m payment is wrong [sorry if so, I read that somewhere and accepted it as fact] paying a 1m premium for a loanee for only 14 games suggests that he should be of a standard to play all or the bulk of those 14 games - either starting or coming on as a scary impact sub. While I accept the need to rotate, that is not this manager's want. Had he been of the standard he was hyped up to be, he would have been one of those who play every week. He isn't; and hasn't been.

He has not been signed as one for the future [see the post I responded to] as he is only a loanee for less than half a season. Thus, comments like "give him a chance" are ones we can apply to Gayle and Joniesta; not Ince. Thus, people have a right to be disappointed.

However, if we took him on loan on the basis that he would either be sensational from day one or we would be better placed to pitch for him on a permanent deal while in situ, then the deal doesn't have the appearance of a flop.

In retrospect, I was probably a tad harsh.

No but your facts are incorrect as I've pointed out which doesn't really substantiate your argument, as I said in a post above, it's a squad game and he has regularly featured in the squad, so he fulfilled the signing criteria.

IMO if he was to sign a contract with us next year, I'd like to see him here, a good prospect.

I think that he might be better suited to next season when we can perhaps start off the season a bit more adventurous in style. Thing is, him being largely on the bench lately is doing us no harm whatsoever with our chances of signing him permanently.

I would think other potential suitors are now looking and thinking he's not good enough to start for us and perhaps losing interest as a result. If we're selling this loan move to Ince in the right way (e.g. to acclimatize him), then hopefully he'll have that in mind if we do decide to make a move with a permanent switch in the summer.

And as said by others, if that 1m has actually given us a chance to decide to miss out on an over-hyped player (if that what is deemed the case by the management come season end) then surely that is better than paying 10m-odd for a flop?

Yeh, Tom came in on a princely sum but has failed to convince. He is too powderpuff and each time he gets tackled it makes me whince. Need to feed him up on spuds and mince.

I was as pleased as punch as any Palace fan when we signed him but at the same time there was always this niggling little doubt.
I think it's called Paul.

Is it just a coincidence that Puncheon's form and effort has picked up massively since Ince's arrival? With the goals he's scoring at the moment that would be worth the money even if Ince doesn't play for us again.
