So we're down to two strikers plus three out on loan. Not sure the return of Mangan and Waring does a lot for us so maybe bring in another loanee until the end of the season?

If rumours are to be believed,count Mangan out, he's on his way to Oldham.

If Mangan does leave, then Cook & Norwood need to work harder and make every shot count.

We keep hearing that there's no more money, so I guess we can rule out buying / loaning another 20+ a season striker then?

Can't see Mangan going to a league club, he's done nothing this season.
Any new striker will presumably be funded by farming players out on loan again, unless anyone does leave in the window.

I think both Jennings and Cole can play just off a striker, the rate Connor is scoring at currently we might as well play with no strikers!

Mangan is made for league football, he’s struggled with the ref decisions and the physicality if the national league, but under that lack of confidence there’s a decent league player

I know its been mentioned in the past but does the transfer window operate in the National league m, I thought maybe it didn't?

I was prepared to reserve judgement until after a few games because on his debut he was pretty poor.

Unfortunately, he hasn't improved and IMO was a wage wasted. For a big player he was pretty useless in the air, in fact he makes Alabi look a world better in the air.

Just a thought, if Alabi returns do we think he will be any better, although he has only been a substitute in the last few games and scored one goal?

Didn’t show anything at any time that I ever thought improved us.

Can’t see anyone coming in. Jennings on fire, Cook and Norwood playing well, Kirby played up front for his short spell under MM last season and scored some goals he was in fact the “fox in the box” we are missing. Cole can play up top also. We still have Devarne Green on the books and Andy Mangan on loan, Tollit is due back. The rumour is Mangan to Oldham that could lead to a potential swap for Banks, May well be that deal was done at the initial loan of Banks in exchange for Managan once the league window opened up. No window in NL as we know so MM will probably see a keeper as the priority with Davies out.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Davies released depending on the severity of the injury or even Pilling. Waring & Alabi will be shipped out I would think. We will probably see some sort of loaner coming in up front from a Championship, League 1 reserve side. Problem is GK is the hardest position to find a player anyway never mind mid season, closely followed by a striker.

Interesting times that may make or break us.

You never know. Alabi might surprise us all and suddenly come good. I'm not holding my breath though!!!

LOL Neither am I... he was terrible at Torquay and from what I saw never got any better... unfortunately as he has done absolutely nothing at Dover they are likely not to extend unless the rumoured season long loan was in fact signed... the only saving grace is that presumably the tribunal settlement with Chester will be much less than otherwise!
Waring if he comes back however probably offers something...Kirby also can play up front though not as a target man.

I would like to see Jake given a chance in Larnall Cole's(DMH) position.

From memory, that was the position he was playing before his injury. Jake is quick and a more robust build to Larnall and providing he has lost none of his pace through the injury could do a worthwhile job.

That would not be a surprise. It would be a downright shock. It still baffles me that paid to gain his service

Waring looks the best prospect from the 3 out on loan if based on goal to minutes return if anything else. Alabi looks no better than any of the strikers I see in the National South, Truro’s Cody Cooke is a far far better striker and he works as a lecturer during the week!!

Alabi scored more goals in 20 minutes against Lairds than he's managed in the 5 months since! Thats probably his level, with no disrespect to Lairds!

I don't understand that comment. Why do Cook & Norwood need to work harder if Mangan leaves?

Because our bench options are getting smaller and smaller and there's allegedly no more money to bring anyone in???
