Dobbie is expected to leave Palace this summer as he finds himself well down the pecking order in Tony Pulis' first-team plans.

The 31-year-old, who joined Palace in 2013 after an initial loan spell, made only two appearances last season for the Eagles before going out on loan to Blackpool for his third spell at Bloomfield Road.

A number of clubs have been linked with a move for Dobbie, but League One new boys Fleetwood are hoping to win the race for the Scot's signature.

Fleetwood boss Graham Alexander is thought to be a big admirer of Dobbie and sees him as a key addition to his plans for life in League One as they aim to mount another bid for promotion this season.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
