    I don't think our squad is particularly thin, just unbalanced.

    Of those being considered to play we had Carew, Essuman, Banton, Thompson all outside the matchday squad v Thurrock and really only Baghuelou involved who isn't a regular.

    That gives us 19 senior players (excluding Baghuelou), two of those are on the transfer list with two more on loans that currently have less than two more weeks to run, with a third loanee on a longer deal. That leaves just 14 senior players fully committed to the end of the season. If Cook leaves we only really have Clunis as an option for right wing-back, and there's no alternative to Onovwigun as a defensive midfielder. Personally I call that "thin". The squad is very much in a state of flux and we have little margin for error on the recruitment front as far as I can see.

    On the plus side, fewer options might lead to greater consistency of selection, which I always feel is helpful when looking to end the sort of poor run of results we've seen recently. Continually making 4 or 5 changes to the starting XI just seems to lead to more tentative play and a loss of confidence in my view.

    Sol Pryce joins us on loan till end of season. Striker from Swindon Town who turned 19 yesterday. Another striker, interesting.

    Still think we're crying out for a holding mid.

    Not sure whether Sol will supersede The Sheriff or complement him.

    I think Onovwigun and Taylor are both competent as relatively young holding midfielders but Kargbo was awesome in that role; his sheer presence and understated ball-playing efficiency won't easily be replaced. He was basically a harder version of Kevin James.

    Agreed. I think Quade is the better option as a defensive midfielder - Onovwigun is a touch injury-prone and I think Quade is one of the best readers of the game in the squad. I always felt that Palace were wrong to move him to centre half, so it was quite nice to see an encouraging half an hour display as a no. 4 on Saturday.

    I'd love someone with Kargbo's know-how and experience, mind.

    Isn't Sheriff only on a months loan or was that one of others that recently came in?

    Christ, is he still with us? We need to pack him off back to Torquay so that we can sign the recently released Elokobi...

    I believe Gav and Mr Elokobi are still in touch. As someone who has watched him play for both Hamlet and Wolves I've got a lot of time for him. His injury record isn't great though which would be a risk financially.

    Banton came on a 1 month loan in the first week of December. It was extended for a second month with a view to signing him, but he hasn't started since the Bath game and the second month must be up after tomorrow. Sheriff's 1 month loan will end after tomorrow unless we extend it.

    I always remember him spraying Mick McCarthy with champagne just as he opened his mouth to speak at a post-match interview. The comic timing was impeccable.

    I believe Jason Banton's loan is up today and that it is not being extended.

    Good, you can explain it to the Liam, who I assume had more meaningful things to listen to :thumbs:

    Any news on the Sheriff's loan? Has Banton definitely gone back to Torquay (please, oh, please)?

    What's happened to Erskine, too? Has he been binned? Ironically, although he clearly wasn't match fit, I thought his performance against Hampton was one of his best in a Dulwich shirt - it was rare to see one of our forwards taking a shot!

    I think it says more about his previous performances than it does about his Hampton one!

    In all seriousness though, he could have had a hat-trick against Hampton, and he didn't fail to score because of any major fault of his own, really. He was just quite unlucky, I thought.

    I actually think Erskine is a potentially pretty good player. I thought he played well initially when he first arrived and was expecting him to have an impact before he got injured. He's just clearly not fit though is he - not injured but just not fit.

    Banton loan is over and not been renewed.

    Sheriff is in the process of being extended.

    We have just signed goal keeper Simon Bloch Jørgensen.
