Yes - I think it was Muhren? Paul Lambert, the Manager is under a lot of pressure. No doubt one reason he got the job was his previous success at Norwich. Not good to fail then!

paddock forum have posted the sad news regarding john manning,s passing away
Still no word from the club about this - at least on the OS. They are usually good at reporting news of former players, particularly ones who played a lot of games and had some success. It's disappointing.

2 is the magic number today with assists for Cole Stockton and goals for Cook and Mullin in their games

I can't believe how many Mullin has scored this season. Isn't he on 20+ now?

22 and Cambridge have only played 30 games. At this rate he’ll get player of the season especially if they go up.

what a great free Transfer for them

Quite surprised Carl has lasted so long as a footballer, remember him as an energetic tough-tackling youngster but a little raw, yet ended up having a successful career north of the border

Clint Hill and Andy Mangan expected to resume coaching duties if Joey Barton gets the Bristol Rovers job.

Given his “swashbuckling” approach as both a player and a manager, I can’t imagine a more appropriate job for Joey than the boss of the Pirates. ;)

Makes you wonder how he’s managed to get another job in league one. At Fleetwood he did ok I think but left partly because he fell out with Ched Evans and also I think he still has an assault charge hanging over him when he whacked the Barnsley managed (allegedly). Surely there are better options out there.

Think the Bristol Rovers owner appears a bit of a loose cannon, so think this might all end in tears. It sounds like the evidence against him for the assault against the Barnsley manager is fairly strong, so Mr Barton may be unavailable after the trial, which recall has been moved back.

The trial is in june, if found guilty he faces a custodial sentence.
