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."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
