    Darrell Clarke has left Bristol Rovers by mutual consent.

    Clarke was in charge for over 4 seasons and overseen back to back promotions from the national league

    Clarke did a good job at Rovers, seems as though he's left as he doesn't want to let them down. I'm sure he'll do well somewhere else.

    Apparently Charlton are hoping to sign two players before Saturday. I wonder whether one of them could be Ogogo as they were strongly linked with him ahead of us in the summer.

    Jordan Graham has joined Oxford on loan from Wolves. Speedy winger who was born in Coventry - would've been a good addition to the squad.

    Portsmouth have completed the signing of midfielder Andy Cannon from Rochdale.

    Oxford hijacked the signing of Glenavon midfielder Mark Sykes who was almost a Port Vale player.

    Fleetwood’s Bobby Grant made his move to Wrexham a permanent deal for the usual undisclosed fee.

    Scunthorpe re-signed Kevin Van Veen from Northampton Town for a reported 6 figure sum

    Leyton Orient. Play in the National League, managed by Justin Edinburgh. Are you thinking of Accrington Stanley?

    He also played twice more against them in the play offs, so they ought to know a lot about the lad to be fair

    Scunthorpe have signed two more players with Byron Webster joining until the end of the season. Harrison McGahey has also joined from Rochdale. Two great additions for them.

    Lee Tomlin has gone back to Peterborough on loan from Cardiff.

    Didn't he get sent off in the reserves for having a hissy fit against us?

    Luton manager Nathan Jones looks increasingly likely over the day to be announced the next Stoke manager.

    Should that happen I wonder how that will impact Luton’s promotion hopes and who they may look at replacing him with.

    Interesting few days ahead for Luton.

    Surprised he wants to talk to Stoke to be honest, especially while he has a great chance of taking Luton up.

    Was quite funny the Luton fans making out it was nonsense and he wouldn't leave while he is working on Luton.

    With no disrespect to Luton. Stoke will offer him a financial package that is probably 10x what he is on at Luton. He will get to work with a budget of an ex-Premier League club with parachute payments that will allow him to sign players he desires, Stokes current squad will be far superior to the current players he plays with, he gets to manage in a decent stadium, and if he does well he could end up in the Premier League as soon as next season. It is an absolutely massive step up in job/club size.

    Been confirmed as Stoke manager. Big blow for Luton that.

    But a good sign for any promotion hopefuls. Arguably the best team to come to the Ricoh this season.

    Would they make the step up?

    Think they have just spent millions on Afobe.

    he likes Collins and i think he would take him as a bench warmer or tactical changes. From what i have seen in the lower premiership and upper Championship Willis would hold his own , i think we judge some players without taking into account they will have better players around them which would cover a lot o their infalibilites we see in league 1 blood and guts football.

    Afobe for 12m in this window
    Crouch
    Diouf
    Berahino

    Yeah the quality they have and situation they are in I’d doubt he’d be going back to Luton for anyone at this stage.

    Jorge Grant has been recalled by Forest today too, plenty be in for his services in L1.
