Martin Ling: Leaves Torquay

The 46-year-old former Leyton Orient manager has been on sick leave with a stress-related illness since January.

In his absence Alan Knill guided the Gulls to npower League Two safety after taking charge in February until Saturday's 3-3 draw with Bristol Rovers, his last game in temporary charge.

"The decision is based purely on footballing grounds, after falling from play-off contenders last season to just escaping relegation this time around, and early exits in all three cup competitions," a club statement said.

"Everyone at Plainmoor would like to thank Martin for his work over the last two years and we wish him every success in the future."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
