The point is at what point Blackburn do decide to get rid of him, there's so much money at stake now that they almost can't risk relegation. Do it now and Sam has a chance to bring players in in January. As for funding replacements, has it definitively been stated than Ince had no money? Have to say much as I wanted him to succeed I do feel he should have taken a championship club on and built up that way, it was a big jump from League 2 to the Prem (this is the man who signed a player Milton Keynes fans seemed happy to be rid of, then got obsessed with trying to sign Robbie Fowler!) There's also the issue that's been knockig around since the summer that he'd lost the dressing room. Hopefully Ince will bounce back, he still has an enviable reputaion lower down the league so I'm sure there are more than a few CC/L1 teams who will offer him a job.
