I see on Twitter tonight that Michael Alaile has confirmed his depature from Canvey to join Margate.

We are looking rather sparse in defence at the moment.

Does Big Mike live near Margate? That's a strange move if not...

Yes Michael, 'Big Mike' was very good for us last season. Spent most of the season at right back although I think he's more comfortable at centre back.

Mike used to travel to us with Wardy from Kent, and now that Wardy has left I wonder if this has had an impact on how he would get to us - I'm not sure if he drives?

I don't think budget is a reason why Russell and Alaile have left - one through stepping up a level and one possibly due to logistics. I know that John has been meeting with lots of players and this will continue over the coming weeks I'm sure - it's time like this we're lucky how much effort the man puts in. He's certainly having a positive impact in his 'Director of Football' role to bring the players in for Glen to manage.

Cheers.

Re-assuring-though i always wait for official confirmation of the 'move' ,especially when on twitter,as its an ideal opportunity for another club to step in at last moment with a better offer,especially over a protracted weekend period

'Big Mike ' is'nt actually that big is he. ?
6'0'' unless the 'Big' in Mike refers to other assets.

all the best for the new season up there in essex.
good season for you last i would have thought-may be difficult for you to repeat ?

The reason he's "Big Mike" is because he's built like a tank!!

He's told us he's joining you, but as you say, until it's signed I suppose there's always the possibility he could go elsewhere, although I'd be surprised.

We've lost a couple of our starting XI, although I have confidence in our GK replacement and if we can add some quality I think we can challenge for the playoffs again.

He does drive, and normally drove to training, which is why I'm surprised by this move!

Oh right, can't be that then!

The works at Sadlers Farm must have annoyed a lot of players, maybe that took its toll?

I can't see it being that big of an issue, as annoying as it is. Would players really change club because of traffic?

I think going to training twice a week and having delays sometimes up to an hour would annoy me!

There isn't any traffic between 7:00pm and 10:00pm at training times, is there?

There were certainly comments from players about the times they were having to leave in order to make training

Purely speculation but perhaps Michael was told he wouldn't be a first choice player for the coming season and thus opted to depart for more regular football?

After all, currently having only two centre-backs and one left back leaves us with a couple of squad positions to fill namely at right-back and at least two defenders as cover across the backline so I imagine we will have several new faces this coming season and particularly the new right-back will be first choice.

It could also be that he wanted to play at centre back, although realistically unless we're looking to bring in a right-back he'd probably have been asked to play right back again this season?
