John-Joe O'Toole: Three-month extension

O'Toole joined the Pirates on New Year's Eve and has already made a huge contribution towards the club's battle against relegation, making four starts and scoring one goal.

He will now remain at the Memorial Stadium until April 2 - taking his loan up to the maximum 93-day period.

Rovers boss John Ward worked with O'Toole during his three-year spell at Colchester as assistant boss and then manager, which was eventually brought to an end in late September.

Ward told Bristol Rovers' official website: "It is great news that John-Joe is here to stay, it is what everyone at the club wanted and the other players are all very happy.

"There is a 24-hour recall clause, but that was something that Colchester United wanted, and I fully understand that.

"He brings a strength and a character to the club and he wears his heart on his sleeve. He is a ball winner and always gives everything.

"He is what we need at this club, he cares about the team and that is why he has endeared himself to the fans."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
