Just noticed on the official Canvey Island site that the club have signed Joe Dolan from Leyton Orient, who previously played for Millwall too.

Anybody know much about him?

Has also played for Brighton, Crawley, and Millwall, great defence player, very strong, and a very good leader even capt. material. I think Crawley were keen to have him back as it seems it was he who helped them in their campaign in the early part of last season, and was sorely missed when he left. A very good aquisition for us and I think the fans will soon warm to him.

In that case, why did we let Dave Theobald go. thought he was class, and with Wardy, Dom, Dave and Chenners we have plenty of cover in the middle.

I just answered a question about Joe Dolan. I do think he is the strength we need in the team. I do think some of our players are a bit 'light weight' Joe certaintly is not that! He is however a back/defender and does not let the ball see the goal if HE can help Well lets see eh!

Any class player is welcome. ALthough not sure if you can call Buncey "lightweight"!

I would hope that Dolan is better than what we have already or there would be no point the club signing him. We need an agressive (not too much) no-nonsense defender who will command our area from corners and hopefully get a few goals from set-pieces, on paper Bunce was that player but sadly it hasn`t worked out.

Crawley fans rate Dolan and talk about him as a leader which is what we need.

Bunce was also the wrong age as well (getting near the end of his career).

Dolan is still fairly young and his experience at football league level will prove invaluable to us.

Still think that centre half is probably our strongest position in terms of depth. Who do you reckon will leave - not Wardy or Dom for sure, Chenners or Dave?

Got no problem with signing older players as long as they still keen and in good shape, Andy Hessenthaler has been released today and i think he could still do the job at 40

I have seen him play a few times. One of the best players I have seen at this level. Should not spend anytime on the bench to play in he is excellent. He would have changed todays game into a winner!
I dont care who's place he takes as long as he plays.
He will draw the crowds for sure! And will make Buncy look like a beginner!!

I had a look at Dolan`s history and and i like what i`ve read, this quote from Brighton manager Mark McGhee sums it up.

"He had a couple of horrendous injuries when I was there," McGhee said. "Prior to that he was a very good centre half.

"He is a Northern Ireland international, a big lad who heads it and boots it.

"What particularly endeared me to him was the tremendous attitude he showed throughout his injuries. He was unbelievably positive and always had a smile on his face.

"He is great on the training ground and in the dressing room. He did well at Stockport and I am sure if his career had not been interrupted he would have been playing against England this week.

"He is exactly the type of character required in our situation. He has got to hit the ground running and I know our boys will take to him instantly."

Couldn't agree more, Theobald was a good solid defender and I still can't work out why we let him go.

As for Dolan, this seems like a fantastic signing for the club. It's refreshing to see that we can attract a player of his obvious quality, and also that the management have noticed a weakness in the team and acted upon it.

And also, looks like we might get a free gig out off it <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
