    I didn't think he made that much of a contribution last season either if I'm honest.

    He'll keep the width and look to take players on but his final ball isn't really there. In our system he seemed to do the defensive side of his game ok at times. Apart from at home to Mansfield when his first involvement as a sub was to switch off, they scored and we lost 1-0. Been an increasingly peripheral figure in the last couple of months along with Jordan Maguire-Drew (who also left) so we all expected a shake up in wide areas.

    Scored a peach in the Checkatrade against County this season, mind.

    The best midfielder I have seen in the National League since we have been down here. I think he will do very well in League Two.

    No they've signed Ollie Banks, not Danny Whitaker.

    He clearly wasn't after much money if he's dropped down and signed for Southport. Maybe he wanted to leave. I would.

    He's no Yaser Kasim though, let's be honest.

    Every Tranmere player is the best in his position in the league, this has long been established.

    Joe Pigott to AFC Wimbledon is a done deal. Will be signing for them on Monday.

    Looks like you saw the best of him today? Seen he's come in for a lot of praise on Twitter.

    Yeah, worked his balls off and did well to last as long as he did because he's not had much football and the match was played at 100mph. It was a difficult one to come into, although he only did because our other winger was suspended.

    Didn't have a lot to feed off from an attacking point of view, as we went through Rowe on the other side more often than not.

    A lot taller and physical than I thought he'd be. More than happy to take it and dish some out himself.

    There's literally 37 Danny Rowes in lower league football, please be more precise.

    For once, I'm not sure we can be blamed here! We've obviously approached Tranmere at some point and they've agreed to let us have him, although I'm not sure why if they'd already agreed to loan him to you guys for the season! Blame Tranmere for the fuck up, and blame Steve Tervet (who is normally very accurate) for announcing it!

    The whole Alabi saga is as clear as mud. Rovers initially claimed he was on loan at Dover until January, whereas Dover had thought it was for the rest of the season, ultimately that was the intention. Ebbsfleet’s announcement of a signing was premature, Micky Mellon saying in his Thursday pre-match interview they might have jumped the gun.

    Whether Rovers should be allowed to be selling a player they’ve not yet paid Chester for is debatable. It seems to be taking an age for a tribunal valuation to be set for Alabi.

    We haven't announced anything! When asked, our manager said there have been talks and he hopes to get the paperwork done.

    Turned down clubs in the Football League (Stevenage and Morecambe apparently) to sign for Solihull - so definitely thinking about location as he's just had a kid and is getting married in the summer.

    He'll be missed at Cheltenham, a key part of our promotion team which now has only 3 players left in it.

    Where did the information he was moving to Ebbsfleet originate then? Rovers have made no announcement about it, while the first Dover appeared to have known was when Alabi didn’t show up for training. Seems likely that Ebbsfleet were the source of the information,even if not as a formal announcement.

    Local journalist. Alabi was spotted at our game on Tuesday, so he asked our manager. All he said was he hoped (didn't give any guarantees) to have the paperwork sorted on Wednesday. That's not an official comment from the Club to say he's signed for us, just that we were hoping to.

    You lot have said he's a Dover player, Dover have basically said they don't want him. Nothing to do with us. ;)

    Yesterday was his league debut (got 60 mins in the Checkatrade on Tuesday) and he did very well. Looks a proper player. Strength, speed and seems to float over the pitch.

    Had a hand in both our goals.

    Fabien Robert returns on loan until the end of the season - brilliant news!

    On the downside, we now have 6 loan players and can only have 5 in the matchday squad, so someone will miss out each week!

    We have signed Nathan Blissett, Callum Evans and Adam Dugdale. Blissett and Evans on loan until the end of the season and Dugdale on loan for a month.

    Blissett will be a useful signing, and he must have preferred the town to the mighty centre of Wrexham. Wilson on his way out?

    Evans looked OK during his time with us before, most importantly he's not Andy Halls. No one seems to have much positive to say about Blissett but he is at least an alternative up front. Dugdale for 1 month is an odd one and implies that one of Pilks/Lowe/Kennedy is injured. Definitely good to have boosted our numbers.

    Blissett will do you a job as a target man but don't expect him to be banging in the goals.

    dugdale and blissett, thats macc out of the title race unless askey can work his coaching magic. Both played for us , both have little to no ability whatsoever but the worst thing about them is they hide when the going gets tough as it invariably does in this division. From what I saw v us and wrexham macc are far too good to be hoofing it up to blissett.

    I hope for maccs sake they are bench warmers and for our sake they start every game .

    Hopefully not. Blisset is a replacement for gime toure who has gone AWOL recently. I'm guessing he'll be used as an impact player or to give Wilson and marsh a rest. The other two are defensive cover. I'd expect Evans to get a few games whilst hodgkiss is out injured. Not the most exciting signings ever but useful to make up the numbers.
