Akinde got a goal and man of the match in this weekends loss at Wycombe despite only coming on at half time.

He certainly won't be going anywhere, well, by anywhere, I mean, to us.

Suggestion : We close off this thread and immediately make no mention of getting a new striker until at least January? It's one way to guarantee that we then sign a striker more or less immediately we all stop talking about it :laugh:

I am sure we can find something else to moan about.

Come on Darren, I pray you’ve got this right...

It's Alfie Pavey. Good fucking grief.

I'm sure he's improved a lot since his awful loan spell here, but 13 goals in 53 games at this level since the start of last season is nothing to write home about.

Good signing. Has grown up and more importantly bulked up since his last spell, has been playing well for Dover this season and should thrive under someone like DC.

For anyone not happy with the signing, don’t panic, he’ll be in the Kabba room within the week.

To the people writing him off already, just calm down FFS.

What were you expecting? Danny Rowe? Akinde? Kane?

We have signed the type of player we have lacked. Big, strong, target man.

OK, he probably won’t become our primary goal outlet, but he’ll be a dangerous threat from crosses - something we crucially lack - and hopefully provide opportunities for other attackers.

He’s made a great start to the season with Dover, and to be honest, with our injuries, we needed someone pronto. Pavey fits the bill.

I look forward to seeing him in action tomorrow, and hope he gets a debut hat trick to prove the doubters wrong.

Although he was terrible last time, I trust DC with this signing all of Darren’s other signings this season have been good and I believe he knows what he wants so we may be pleasantly surprised, looking forward to tomorrow night.

A few were genuinely expecting Rowe which I thought was unrealistic. I think that given how picky DC has been for a while now, for us to bring in a slow, plodding target man whose goal record at this level is worse than one in four does seem very underwhelming. I don't think he moves quickly enough to solve the problems we have in our attack and nor can we rely on him to create for others when we don't have enough proven scorers in our midfield.

Still, there's no doubt he offers something different, the question is how good his hold up play will be and how effective he will be in the six yard box.

It was over for Barham when DC came in to be honest. He's never rated him.

5 years is a long time in football, lets hope we can end the season the same way we did the last time Alfie was at the club.
