As others have said I am pleased we signed a proven goalscorer, even if hes not set the world alight in the last few years but he has not played as low as L2 since he was 22.

He turned down a move to Colchester apparently, a team higher in the table than us and also turned down a move to Lincoln last season.

Yes he has only scored 1 in 5 games he plays but hes a very different style of striker to anything we have at the club, hes a goal poacher paid to sit in the box and convert chances, we have created loads of chances this seaosn and had nobody on the end of them.

The quandry is who to drop of the 6 loanees as we now have Woolf, Koiki, Carroll, House, Bennett and Theo.

I too am surprised nobody else left us though to ease any pressing on the budget.

I am quite pleased though with the 9 signings this window.
Agree with your general thoughts however I believe Robinson was playing non-league football as recently as 2017.

Early rumours.

Neal Bishop from Mansfield- although he’s likely to resign for them

And Ben Whitfield from Vale

Bishop is 37!

Must admit I don't remeber Whitfield and know nothing about him.

Indeed he is. Was described as a veteran, tbf. From what I gather he has been one of Mansfield’s stand out players this season.

According to Vale fans his situation there sounds a replica of Bennett’s at Rovers- talented but not often enough and has fallen out of favour.

All early bollocks I suspect. Both came from the EFL Hub Twitter.

All rumours are good even if they are far fetched. I love us being linked to random players at this time of year.

I'm looking forward to this transfer window, as for the first time in a while it feels like we may actually have a plan for recruitment with Jewel as DoF.
Obviously if we get to 1st July with no signings, then something has gone very wrong, but I expect us to have at least 4 or 5 key players by then.

I doubt we will have 5 players in before the end of their contracts on 30th June, there is usually a flurry in the first week of July.

I see RW is speaking about Knoyle and Conroy in the Adver about making contingency plans if neither or if one doesn't sign.

That sounds a bit like either....hurry up and sign on for another season so we can plan who we need to sign or he doesn't think they will sign and telling fans not to worry too much if they don't.

Conroy looks handy and I would like him to sign next year but its no biggie if he doesn't sign, Knoyle for me would be a huge loss at RB where he has been one of ourr most consistant performers alls eason.

Knoyle - defensively I agree he has performed week in week out, but going forward he is poor. I am honestly not that bothered if he chooses to leave.

Our left back woes show that we should try and hang on to Knoyle!

I would personally prefer to keep Knoyle rather than Conroy, also when Knoyle was our best left back all season that tells you something too about our defence!

But a couple of wingers and let them do the hard stuff. Knoyle can do the defensive bit.

Wierdly I am pretty sure that Knoyle's crossing has won us more corners this season than any other player has won for us, Anderson and Woolery could push him but certainly since Wellens has been at the club Knoyle has been one of our best attacking outlets.

The fact that we have been utterly shite from the resulting corner is neither here nor there though.

See I disagree I find Knoyle totally frustrating to watch attacking wise. His crossing to me is poor, he fails to put balls in when he has a chance and gets stuck on his non existent left foot where he ends up just playing a ball inside or back.
He just strikes me as an above average performer in a poor team, rather than anything else.

Interesting to see how people view matches differently, I would say hes been my player of the season, the best of a bad bunch.
