According to Twitter Barton's close to becoming the manager...
With there being a strong anti Barton support amongst those to be considered older Pirates, I wonder if the board is considering the Scottish gent as he is not known and would have more positive reaction from the likes of me. Its an alternative theory used in management
Having thought long and hard about this, and the jungle drums certainly seem to indicate that Barton will be our next manager, I think my personal approach will have to be to bite the bullet, and judge him purely on our results and his behavior whilst with us. We can object all we like, but as Wael is the one who is pouring shed loads of money into the club, and keeping us in existence in reality, I guess it's only right that the final decision rests with him. Personally I am prepared to wipe the slate clean regarding his past misdemeanors, and give him a chance to prove what he can do. As long as he doesn't do anything to damage the reputation of the club, then I don't see what other option we realistically have - who knows, he might turn out to be another hero and endear himself to the fanbase, although I fear he will have a lot of work to do to succeed with that.
He's been convicted a couple of times for violent conduct and has a court case pending for some issue with the Barnsley manager, and his brother's doing a long sentence for racially motivated murder. Then there's the gambling.... He's an accident waiting to happen.
Christ! Didn't realise his rap sheet was that extensive - thought he'd got involved in some high profile and public rows over the years, and was just generally an aggressive and confrontational individual. I get the impression that Tommy W doesn't suffer fools and can be very 'direct' in his dealings with people. Can see some fireworks kicking off good and proper when those two lock horns. (Assuming Barton gets the job.) Hope somebody has spelled out what will be acceptable behavior and what wont, before it ends in tears.
I have stolen this from elsewhere....

There is probably a lot more than this and don't forget he has been sent off twice as manager against us alone!
And some fans want this guy to be our manager!! I honestly would rather we get relegated than have him at our club.
It certainly wouldn’t be dull with Joey in the dugout.
Yes, but apart from all that, what's he actually done that's so wrong?? ..... .......CJS, perhaps it might be an idea to forward this list to Wael before it's too late - if it's not already!
Well if he does get the job I dont think there will be any supporters for him to attack for a while and I probably think there will be less attending matches after we get back. With the number of people he has attacked in the world of EFL I am surprised they haven't given him a life ban
5 attacks on people in football plus 1 not yet proven / unproven
2 attacks on non football related
1 Jail term served and 1 suspended
Please Wael Al-Qadi do not employ this manager
I showed Wael and he said Barton behaved in 2006, 2014 and 2018 so has proved he can behave
Less than 12 months ago, so while still manager for Fleetwood and just a month after his assault on the Barnsley manager, Barton was on a beach with some mates and decided to punch a few others on the beach. Clearly visible knocking 2 people down with punches... and some want this to be our manager!
Read today that Ipswich are giving their manager a hard time, many are wanting a new manager as they are not in a promotion position. 'oh yee of little faith'
To be fair to them Ipswich is/was a big club and Lambert appears to be taking them backwards not forwards.
What an absolute knob!!
Apparently Rovers are interested in the Cheltenham manager Michael Duff to take over from Paul Tisdale, would be a good signing I think
Google search Bristol Rovers and look for an entry entitled Rovers set sights on league boss -72
It apparently come off a site called We Love Football League The 72
Hope that helps CJS
Cheers. I be very surprised if we get him.
So would I CJS but if we did I think we could have the Jackpot in a positive way
