    Me too, especially as robins signed him for Scunthorpe. He may of looked at him, has someone else lined up or worse still happy with Burge!

    Mansfield continue to strengthen with the signing of Scunthorpe's David Murfin

    Yeovils Alex Lacey opted to join league one Gillingham

    Yeah there doing good business for league two. A mix of experience, winners pace and goals. Strengthening in every department.

    Tho I think I've found the reason for there transfer success and it ain't Steve Evans!!

    I'm banking on too many new faces and 2/3 months before they settle

    Much better than not enough new faces and no wins for the first 2 to 3 months.

    Crewe have signed target man Chris Porter from Colchester on a free.
    I think we've missed out here, we should of been in for him!! 33, but 16 goals last year.

    To be fair we've already signed 6, probably waiting to see how many who were offered contracts leave, and re-assess then

    Mansfield have failed to land James Hanson from Sheffield united after a bid had been accepted, but the player rejected the move.

    Issac Vassell has joined Birmingham city from Luton.
    Was a labourer and playing for Truro just over 12 months ago.

    Glad about Hanson rejecting them. Had enough of him battering our defence for the last 5 years. Would have thought there'd be plenty of L1 teams ready to take him.

    I am not sure. His presence makes teams a bit one dimensional and once Wells moved on from Bradford they had nobody to run on to his knock downs.

    Agree completely about the impact he has on a team's play. Just think a team like Wimbledon might gamble on him - traditional long ball team but Chelsea have relaid a new pitch there and Neal Ardley has been trying to play passing footy on it but they've had a bad start so might panic and go back to what they know. Or maybe Mowbray will finally realise he needs a plan B! :p

    Nah, he's always realised he needs a plan B, but could never implement it.

    Crewe Alexandra have signed Finnish goalkeeper Jaaskelainen on a one-year-deal after he left Bolton.

    It's Jussi's son, Will, so nothing to worry about unless he suddenly becomes as good as his Dad.
